    Not right now at least, because of multiple licenses involved.

    And as to THE SUPER GLOBETROTTERS? Please hold your thoughts on that until later.

    Regarding The Rascals: If the animated series was to see the light of day on DVD, CBS Television Distribution might have to sign a deal with Warner Archive in order to release a DVD set and/or the black-and-white shorts. But CBS knows the animated series was very unsuccessful in the ratings, no matter where in the world it airs (except for Germany), and would not sell well.

    Another idea is to have an all-inclusive Little Rascals set containing all the black and white shorts and cartoon series in one full DVD set.

    Well. I do think more cartoons from Ruby Spears and HB will make it out on DVD sometime, I'm more concerned about the cartoons and children shows that came from independent studies that might be "lost," such as Hot Wheels, the Hardy Boys, Smokey the Bear, and other in limbo cartoons.

    Actually, Hardy Boys was a Filmation property licensed from the Strathmore Syndicate, the current rights holder to the book series. Hot Wheels is owned by Mattel. Smokey the Bear was licensed to Rankin-Bass by the US Forest Service.
