Release "Chip n' Dale: Rescue Rangers" Volume 3 on DVD
Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers (1989-1990) was a popular series from Walt Disney Television Animation. Based on the extremely popular characters from the various Disney shorts of the 1940's and 50's, the series was an instant success fueling the further success of the syndicated block of Disney animated shows known as The Disney Afternoon, and left a permanent mark on American culture.
In 2009, the popular web site IGN listed Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers number 60 out of their Top 100 Best Animated TV Shows. It has been translated into multiple languages and shown in countries all over the World. It has been featured in Disney comics, and still runs in syndication abroad.
After years of being out of print from a few VHS releases, Disney released Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers along with several other Disney Afternoon series on DVD. Without fan-fair the sets depended on word of mouth. Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers received 2 volumes over two years with one final volume to go, before the series was dropped due to 'Lack of Interest'.
We, as a collective body of fans, urge Walt Disney Home Entertainment to finally release the end of this treasured classic onto DVD. Let us enjoy the final 14 episodes, whether through the more preferred method of a standard retail DVD, as were the first two volumes, or simply via the DVD-on-Demand program. We feel the excuses for denying fans access to the end of this show must come to an end.
If Walt Disney Home Entertainment properly markets and advertises this final volume and does not have overly high list prices (two problems that plagued the first two releases) we know it will sell better than the previous volumes. There is a strong fan base for this show and we are ready to demonstrate with our pocket books how beloved it still is, if we are given the opportunity. Thank you.
