CBS Storybreak The Complete 26 Episodes DVD 2015 TBA.

We called the 20th Century Fox Company they said that the release date is a business secret.

Still, I believe that enough people keep contacting them they will ultimately break and provide more details about their release plans.

Let's keep the pressure up.

They are coming in 2015, that is all the episodes they have retained the rights to- many of these are based upon children's novels and unless they pull something out of their hat, it will be an incomplete release. The raggedy Ann and Andy special, Chocolate Fever, and some moreI can't think of- I don't think will be included.

The Gammage Cup?! I loved C.L.U.T.Z. and The Roquefort Gang, but even though Gammage is one of my favorite books, I never saw that episode and had no idea they adapted it, too. Glad to hear it's getting a release; I hope they can get the rights to that episode.

this series was originally produced by Australia's Southern Star and America's Hanna-Barbera Productions for CBS Entertainment.

It is suppose to come out on a 6 DVD set on an unknown date
when this happens, it will probably be release first on amazon.

There are many unproven posts about this, but overall it puts pressure on the rights holders to release this special series.

I just got off the phone with them- sadly, there are absolutely no plans to release this series in its complete form and the person I spoke with said "it's highly requested but unfortunately a licensing nightmare- if anything a few of the episodes may be released as stand alone films or in a small set of the few episodes we have retained the rights to"

BTW Sharpfork, if you want to help us applying some pressure on producers to make/renew series from the 80's you can go to www.tvshowsondvd.com and vote there. Maybe you can interest your friends to do the same.

Thanks

If anybody knows of a legitimate source I'll be happy to get it. The episodes I'm looking for are The Great Ringtail Garbage Caper and The Double Disappearance of Walter Fozbek.

Thanks

8 episodes are still missing from the series.

Any idea where I might find episodes from it.

I think that the only source available is from private people that have downloaded episodes when the series ran.

The episodes I don't have are:

The Great Ringtail Garbage Caper
The Double Disappearance of Walter Fozbek
The Pig Plantagenet
The Roquefort Gang
Mama Don't Allow
Max and Me and the Time Machine
Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy and the Camel with the Wrinkled Knees
and What Happened in Hamelin
