The lives of a retired football player (Alex Karras) and his wife (Susan Clark) are suddenly disrupted when a cute orphaned son of a former teammate named Webster (Emmanuel Lewis) moves into their household. Largely compared to Diff'rent Strokes, Webster ran for six fun-filled seasons on ABC from 1983-1986.
A week ago we had the scoop
that Shout! Factory had acquired the rights to release Webster - Season 1
on DVD. Today we've learned that the street date for this 3-disc set will be January 25th
. You'll get 22 episodes running approx. 550 minutes, plus bonus material which is still being finalized and will be formally announced by Shout! at a future date. Video is full frame, audio is English Dolby 2.0, and the cost is just $29.93 SRP! Here is your exclusive first look at the packaging, plus a link to pre-order it from Amazon right away and lock in your copy at a discount:
Note that Amazon has now, for unknown reasons, pulled their pre-order listing for this title. Perhaps it was simply premature. We believe the situation is very likely just temporary, and by the time you read this the listing could have been restored. If not, please check back in the near future.
