Release Date and Special Features for DARIA: THE COMPLETE ANIMATED SERIES

One of the most-demanded TV shows for a DVD release  is finally set to arrive as the appropriately named TVShowsonDVD.com has announced that Daria: The Complete Animated Series will hit DVD on May 11th.  The episodes will be in full screen, but there are currently no details on the audio, the price (like that will stop you from buying it), how many songs they were able to get the licensing rights for, or the package art.

However, we do know the special features for the set, and I’ve included the list after the jump.  Again, you’re due to stand on my neck on May 11th.

- All Five Seasons plus Both Movies (that adds up to 1606 minutes of brilliant)

- The Five-Minute Pilot, “Sealed with a Kick”

- Mystik Spiral Music Video, “Freakin’ Friends”

- Daria Day Intros

- Top Ten Video Countdown Hosted by Daria & Jane

- Cast & Crew Interviews

- Never Before-Seen Mystik Spiral spin-off script

While Mike Judge’s Beavis and Butthead may have the greater name recommendation, I believe its spinoff, Daria, has a more devout following of fans.  Rather than trying to just be another Beavis and Butthead, Daria went in a completely different direction, going with sardonic wit and satire over needing “tee-pee for my bunghole.”  The benefit of a larger and diverse cast of characters helped the show by offering viewers a variety of choices of personal favorites (mine: Daria’s Dad, Jake).

Hopefully, the price of this set won’t be insane, but it’s hard to argue that it won’t be worth it.  Of course, part of the delay is due to trying to regain the use of songs used in the show.  I’m not sure if they got them all, but I don’t think that’s a huge deal breaker.  I am impressed that they got Daria and Jane’s top ten countdown, although TVShowsonDVD doesn’t specify if the music videos are actually included or if it will just be the interludes of Daria and Jane being sardonic and awesome.

    Oh. My. GOD! Finally! I remember a few months ago I was trying to find something like this, only to be disappointed. I had to scrounge around on the internet to try and find a few episodes. Definitely going to buy this when it comes out.. hopefully it isn't ridiculously priced.

    But will it have the original music? I'm guessing not :-/

  • Mariam

    okay, what's that song with “strawberry” in the title that was in the episode “see jane run”? I can't find it ANYWHERE.

  • Enid

    Might help if you said what scene it plays over.

  • Mariam

    it was in the credits…

    According to http://www.outpost-daria.com/song_list_2.html#e… it's “Talkin' To Myself” by Clara Thomas. They also have a song on their only album called “The Girl With the Strawberry Lips,” so maybe they mistakenly credited the wrong song.

    Who cares if it doesn't have the original music? All we need is high quality video and all the dialogue, and the heroes of the Internet will fire up their software, dub the music back in and have the HQ DVDrips on the street by May 12!

    Music can be fixed, but low bitrates and missing dialogue can't, so hats off to MTV for taking care of the series as best they could.
