Release "Darkwing Duck" Volume 3 on DVD
"Darkwing Duck" (1991-1992) was the successful spin-off show from the equally successful animated show, "DuckTales." Produced by Walt Disney Television Animation, it was a major part of the once popular Disney Afternoon television block.
The success of the series has fueled the creation of other popular Disney animated cartoons, comic books (including a modern one which just ended production in late 2011), toys and lunchboxes as well as a host of other memorabilia, and has left a permanent mark on American culture. It has been translated into multiple languages and shown in countries all over the World, including but not limited to, Bulgaria, Germany, Czech Republic, Taiwan, India, Hungary, South Africa, and the United Kingdom, as well as it was one of the very first American animated shows to be syndicated in the former Soviet Union.
After years of being out of print from a few VHS releases, Disney released "Darkwing Duck" along with several other Disney Afternoon series on DVD. Without fan-fair the sets depended on word of mouth. Darkwing Duck received two volumes 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 37 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.
