Teacher's Pet is now available to pre-order from Amazon.com. So is a Freaky Friday 2-Pack, which houses both the 1977 and 2003 live action Disney comedies with a $39.99 SRP.
An update on "Boy Meets World." When we broke the story last December 1 that this sitcom (along with "Popular" and "Felicity") would be debuting on DVD this summer, it was reported that it would be a 3-disc set. Then when Disney officially announced it on February 7, it was stated that the Season One set would contain six discs. Well, now retailers are listing it as just 3 discs again. The bonus features have also apparently been finalized as "Audio Commentaries" (episodes and commentators not yet known), Behind-the-Scenes Featurette "Yesterday and Today", and Never-Before-Seen Outtakes and Bloopers. SRP will apparently remain $49.99, which does seem a bit high for a 3-disc set. Our Buena Vista TV shows coming to DVD article has been updated with the cover art for "Popular" and "Felicity."
April 1, 2004 - We've added a page of captures from next month's highly-anticipated Treasures sets: Disney On The Front Lines, Mickey Mouse in Living Color: Volume 2, The Chronological Donald, and Walt's Tomorrowland.
