what's funny is that I have no doubt this thread will get many more responses than the thread I posted earlier on "A Bridge Too Far."

? I know he's on Family Guy, but I don't ever recall him being on Futurama. Billy West is the actor who plays Fry/Farnsworth/Zoidberg though. Super talented guy.

Well, this is definitely good news for me. Last time I saw this was on VHS...I never had it on DVD. And I do want it. I'll watch this first, followed by BB!

Looks like this will easily be the best version of this little goofball masterpiece to ever see the light of day. AKA - it will be mine! I'd take this any day over the two Schumacher Batman movies!
