    Cool, I remember read the Littles books as a kid, though only got to see a few episodes of the cartoons. I remember them being pretty good

    I liked the Littles when I saw it on Toon Disney a few years ago, but I'm not sure I would want to own it on DVD. Still, its cool that another show is getting the DVD treatment. Just one thing... this report doesn't specificy whether The Littles will include the two special movies (one of them being the pilot special Here Come the Littles which is already on DVD) or the Christmas episode.

    I watched the Littles, but I never really loved it. But Get Along gang was great. Although I kinda doubt they would entertain me much nowadays. I kinda doubt that would hold up after all this time.

    I watched both shows as a kid. And I had plushes of Bingo Beaver and Montgomery Moose from the Get Along Gang.
    Get Along Gang is one of those shows I'm pretty sure wouldn't hold out today. And while I'd like to see the Littles again, especially the movie, I don't want to see it badly enough to pay for it.

    I'm still waiting for A Pound Puppies DVD set. I'd snatch that up in a heartbeat.

    I've just watched the opening sequence on the YouTube, and my first thought was "why did I ever watch this show?". I'm SURE there was a reason I watched this on a Sunday on ITV, I'm just struggling to remember what it was!

    Cool! And each one of them had theme songs that could get stuck in your head!

    That's fantastic news! The Littles was the first television series I wrote for. Jean Chalopin hired me to write some episodes. That led to my being hired as a story editor at DIC where my first staff job was Care Bears. Good to see Get-Along Gang coming out too, as I wrote a number of them.

    I guess if you wait around long enough...

    Here, you can cry on my shoulder. On reading the news, I cried out too but it was something you can't post here...

    Aww. I had a semi-crush on Lucy little. That show has a place in my heart. I really did enjoy that series.

    I hear that.

    I didn't get into the Get-Along Gang, but I'm glad to see that plenty of Retro stuff is getting a DVD treatment too.

    They've released the box art for The Littles. And let me just say, PUKE!!!! OMG! I can freaking draw better than that! That is the WORST box art I've ever seen in my whole entire life. It really makes me want to say bad words right now. It honestly looks like the work of a 5th grader. Actually that's an insult to 5th graders. What in the heck were they thinking?

    Its in line with all their other releases, they hire the worst artists for their covers. I think fans could provide better artwork.

    For real, why are they hiring these people. Someone needs to smack them in the back of the head. I'm sure there are fan artists out there who would do a much better job for free. Like someone else said, I'd rather see a random screen grab from the show than that.

    I think their Heathcliff set was the best one they produced, Captain N and Mario were at least somewhat accurate. Zelda was horrd as is The Littles covers, and the Inspector Gadget was about as bland as you can get.

    It was noted earlier that as long as the episodes are DVD quality it does not matter, well given their track record it will be a notch above VHS to DVD home conversions.

    Rhino paved the way for how to do animated dvd, and BCI along with Warner Bros have taken animated dvd to the next level, companies like Lions Gate and Shout are just releasing to make a quick profit. Which for many of these shows is the best way to do it (and the only shot for us fans to get them on the cheap).
