I've been saying for years that Fox and Warner/DC had to get their sh*t together and get this done. Fans will want commentary tracks by/interviews with Adam West, Burt Ward, Julie Newmar, etc., and them folks ain't getting any younger.

Other than those 3, I think Yvonne Craig & Lee Meriwether are the only notable other cast members still alive.

There is probably a few minor villains as well, but I cant think of many that are still alive.

The problem with the show is apart from those 5, most of the cast were all older actors who's careers started in the 20s to 40s.

I'm surprised it hadn't been released before now.


20th Century Fox (who produced the show) and Warner Bros. (owners of DC Comics, home of Batman) have been fighting over home-video rights to the show since the early 1980s.


When the show was made in the 1960s, DC Comics wasn't part of the Warners empire yet.

I'm surprised it hadn't been released before now. I'm not particularly excited about this one, but it does give me hope for other old series to receive a proper DVD release. I would love to have The Rebel on DVD.

I wouldn't think it would give hope for anything else to be released as Batman is one of the most popular shows of the 60s, and has been in a long running battle to get it onto DVD. It has literally taken decades to get the rights for a release sorted (going back to VHS).

I cant say how well known The Rebel is in the USA, but I doubt anyone outside the US has heard of it, where as Batman is a worldwide phenomenon.


I'll be very surprised if this isnt one of the biggest selling 60s tv boxsets ever.

    • As an elitist my first, second and third reaction was a resounding no.   But then after a little self reflection and attesting that I don't have to have a hard drive of beeps, bits and squeals made it OK.   As mentioned clearly noting the format is key.   I believe we have some "Band Made CDR's" onsite as well, but as stated those are official releases and no other format.   While we are going down the rabbit whole, why not include cassette's? Maybe even vinyl? But the caveat would be that the release fits the parameters of the site and no other format exists, cuz at the end of the day its getting the cool bands seen and known to the elite crowd that resides herein.  
    • And while Young & Fabulous does the most excellent TPOH inspired 1980's glam fused rock n roll, the Upper Crust go old old old school and take it back to the 1880's, Once More Into the Breeches, baby. Both band are far to witty with not only their tongues but yours and your girlfriends jabbed into their cheek
    • You're either into that sort of thing or you aren't... I've been into gaming since Doom released in 1993...actually I even gamed before that on bulletin boards before the internet really got going....
    • Washington State has a boatload of glam bands for glamier than the likes of Heart, no disputing MLB, cuz Landrew the love god is well god. Teachers Pett Rail Gibby Lixx Show N Tell Perennial War Babies TKO Bang Gang Talks Cheap Tramp Alley Alice N Chains (pre Facelift) Diamond Lie Lipstick Aurora Bathtub Gin Whiskey Fixx Masheen Heck even the new (er) Prophets of Addiction ...to name a few, plenty more.  
    • What pray tell is "critical race theory"?
    • That tis funny, and I would watch you pillage for hours but I can't play them type of games, maybe its the motor skills, shrug?
    • Sounds like a brilliant marketing campaign "Who needs lawsuits, when you got Slurpees!"   I for one am glad that particular story had an uplifting and not tragic end, minus the profiling of course.   I tell you its addictive, especially if you get some like minded folks talking about this evolution or this mythical or or or. Fortunately my son still buys too many Pokemon cards and we play the actual card game regularly, that my friends is the best thing ever, when it comes to being a parent, sharing something special with your kids.  
    • It's coming out in February 2022 so your prediction might be a bit off
    • Well I'm a gamer but if I can't blast someones face off with a shotgun then I'm not interested....
