We've had a release listing
here at the site for SCTV Network 90 - Volume 4
for quite a while now, but we've been a bit lax about providing the details and cover art for you about this September 13th
release. Let us make it up to you, with complete info, starting with the press release, then the cover art, and then the info on the back of the box:
SCTV'S INCREDIBLE 5TH SEASON (Yes, that's Volume 4) finds the show renewed on NBC and still in the 90-minute format. Three cast members have departed, Dave Thomas, Rick Moranis and Catherine O'Hara-although Catherine makes a memorable return in "The Christmas Show," but Martin Short's star rose in their absence. His inimitable character Ed Grimley finds his way into many of the sketches. The Shmenges are back and John Candy introduces Mr. Mambo.
The Volume 4 box set features four Emmy-nominated shows ("Towering Inferno," "Christmas Special," "Midnight Cowboy" and "Sweeps Week"), plus Robin Williams as a guest in the "Jane Eyrehead" episode; it also includes musical guests John Mellencamp, Joe Walsh, and Crystal Gayle.
Includes an extra DVD with 3 extra episodes-12 episodes total- 33% more content at the same price as the first 3 volumes! Also includes a collectible set of character trading cards.

And Catherine O'Hara returns for a special guest appearance in the "Christmas" episode.
