The DVD industry continues its long, slow march to the new fall season, with the previous seasons for over a half-dozen of our favorite shows hitting stores today. But before we get to those, we have news about a blast from your past that just hit DVD...
Warner Bros. has made a lot of movies over the years, and if you count all of the shorts they used to do, back when theaters showed that kind of thing, the number gets even bigger. One of those series of shorts, Our Gang, was just released on DVD from the Warner archives, and while it's doubtful anyone reading this actually saw them in theaters, you may have seen them during their long run on TV as The Little Rascals. Each 10-minute short followed the adventures of a motley crew of kids with names like Spanky, Porky, Froggy, Alfalfa and Buckwheat -- the latter of whom became an Eddie Murphy character on Saturday Night Live. They're a piece of television (and movie) history!
