Phil of the Future: volume 1
PHIL OF THE FUTURE is a live-action comedy series that introduces 15-year-old Phil Diffy as the teenager of tomorrow, literally. While on a time travel vacation, Phil and his seemingly average family from the year 2121 get stranded in present day. While waiting to return home, the Diffys struggle to keep their secret while Phil and his incorrigible, contentious little sister Pim adjust to a new home. Phil finds a trusted friend in neighbor Keely and together they navigate their school campus, grappling with the same thing that teenagers of all time must face – fitting in. More often, it's the inimitable Pim who raises a few eyebrows with her scrappy antics especially when she uses her Wizard gadget to get her way.
This first collection on DVD and VHS features four episodes (including one never-before-seen episode, "Team Diffy)."
Suggested retail price: $19.99 (DVD), $19.99 (VHS) Rated: Not yet rated. Bonus materials not rated and subject to change.

When Pooh eats all the Halloween candy, Lumpy and Roo decide to be “brave together, brave forever” and catch the Gobloon.

Voted the best British sitcom of all time in a 2004 audience poll, Only Fools and Horses entered its sixth season with a number of changes -- a longer episode length, romance for Rodney and a new look for Del, who has recast himself wholeheartedly in the image of Gordon Gekko from the film Wall Street. Despite Rodney's move toward practicality in signing up for computer training, Trotter's Independent Traders (TIT for short) are still as active as ever in their hilarious pursuit of any scheme that might bring that elusive million to the brothers Trotter.
