MTV Downtown dvds


Hey there. A lot of people have been asking about Downtown on dvd. When, where, how, etc... Well you can get your own promotional copy of all 13 episodes (3 disc set) if you click on the button in the column on the right hand side of this blog. You'll be charged $25 on paypal. This cost includes the shipping, handling, dvd media and box. The episodes themselves are free! This is a promotional item only and not for resale. Enjoy!

Also - It usually takes a couple weeks to get the dvds. That's if you're in North America. It might take longer if you're in another part of the world. Please be patient! We will send it out. We just have an old fashioned process. We package everything by hand and bring the orders to the post office at the end of every week. But - if it's been over a month and you haven't received anything, please let me know! thanks.

This is super-fantastic-o-rama-matic! I'll be buying and enjoying it for sure.

And I'll link to your blog on my blog, Trog.

Tor Y. Harbin said...

Dear Lord, I've been waiting forever for this. Thank you so very much, not only for allowing "Downtown's" fans this opportunity, but for creating the show in the first place.

Best of luck in your career and have a nice day.

Robin said...

Hello, I suppose the only way these things will get to south africa is if I use a third party ship to ship from the states to here, hey?

compn said...

ah, thank you for taking care of your fans. unlike mtv! :shakes fist:

cant wait for next season of dethklok too.

mt said...

This is awesome. Thank you so much!

chris p said...

Hey Robin-

I'll check on shipping to South Africa. I think we can make it happen.

Robin said...

thanks chris! :D

Indigo Violent said...

Not quite as far-distant as South Africa, but what about Canada?

chris p said...

Indigo-

Canada is no problem. We've already sent a bunch to Cananda.

James said...

Chris,

Thank you so much for making this available. Looking forward to getting mine in the mail

Thanks Again

Darren said...

Just to say a big thanks realy, there aren't many people that would go to this kind of trouble to bring their fans what they want. I guess this is what makes Chris P such a awesome bloke. Do you need any extra cash as i have ordered my dvd set but im based in the uk

Poopville said...

I just want to say that I really appreciate this! I got the set today and the quality of the whole package is just great. Picture and sound are all top notch, the menus are sweet and the commentary is funny. I really can't understand why MTV didn't put this out because it is a very high-quality DVD set of an awesome show. I'm so glad we finally have this!

chris p said...

Robin-

We can ship to South Africa. When I checked at the post office they said sometimes stuff gets lost in customs through the "cheap" mail that I would be using. I could send it first class priority or something and it would cost a bit more. If you want to order it that way just add $10 to the shipping. If you want the slightly less reliable way, the $25 will work.

Robin said...

Thanks very much Chris, I'll see how my bank account feels :D

My brother-in-law's father is going to be in the States next week, so I might ask if I can send it to him and have him bring it home. I'll see, but thanks for taking the time to find all this out for me.

Allistair said...

WOW! WOW! WOW! Finally I cans top watching my shitty ass VHS bootleg with French subtitles! Thanks so much Chris, Downtown is my fav. show right along with Home Movies and Mission Hill (coincidence all of them got axed?).

I'm going to buy it anyway, but you call this a "promo" copy as in an official copy is coming out? will there be any changes?

chris p said...

Allistair-

There's no official copy coming out to my knowledge. This is it. We made this on our own. That's why it's "for promotional use only" and not officially "for sale."

Darren said...

Just wanted to saqy thanks once more as I received my dvd yesterday and its awesome that chris p has taken the time to make this for his fans. It ould be kool if some of the internet boffins could make a proper downtown webpage with an official and well presented design.. if people colaborated could this be made posssible?

But anyways cheers Chris P

Shaun said...

Hey man, recieved my DVD. It's awesome. But there aren't that many eastereggs as far as I can tell. How many exactly are there? It's pretty stupid for me to moan about easter-eggs since all I really wanted was the episodes, so I'll shh. Thanks :D

andrew said...

Jesus, man, I have been waiting EIGHT YEARS to see this show again. Greatly appreciated.

Yan said...

Got the DVD today. Pro package, really, wow! Thanks so much!

.: Snare :. said...

FINALLY!

Kagetsu said...

I came across this show mentioned in a forum thread and had gone and dung out the tape I have of a few of the original run shows. I've yet to see all of them. Making a fan user bar and searching up pics I came across this little treat. Really glad to see Goat in Megas too. Downtown and Daria were the best ever, at least I'll have this great show to keep.

Is this something that should be kept a little quiet? I spend time posting on a few animation boards and was thinking of mentioning the dvd once it comes. But I don't want to ruin things as this is promotional only.

Mandy said...

I have just ordered the dvds. Thank you so much for making these available! My husband and I wore out the tape we used to tape them from the TV.

I really don't understand MTV... Downtown, Daria, The Head: these should all be out on DVD!

vernon said...

I can't seem to be able to purchase the dvd on paypal. I keep getting a timed out message. Please help!!!!!!

chris p said...

Hey Vernon-

I'm not sure why it's not working. I got a couple orders yesterday. Maybe it's something with Paypal? Anyway, if you still can't get it to work let me know and we can just do the transaction through email.

Shaun said...

Chris, how many of these have you sold so far? Just wondered.

starwolf1001 said...

PeterMcEvoy said...

Chis, Im an absolutely huge downtown fan!, a real shame its not still on the air. Now theres a space on my book shelf beside mission hill, and downtown would look great there, however I currently live in scotland, what would be the story with shipping?

raphael said...

my girlfriend loves this show, and i just clicked purchase.

i cant wait to receive this because she'll flip

hmemcpy said...

WOW! This is awesome! I've been waiting forever for some sort of DVD! Now, please tell me that you would ship to Israel. I'm ready with my mouse on the PAypal button :)

Art Jefferson said...

Hey Chris,
I live in North Hollywood. Can I buy the dvd direcly from your studio and pick it up or is it mail only?

Jez said...

Hi Chris,

It's great to find out you're making this available!
I'd love to get a copy, but I'm over in England - how can I pay for the extra shipping costs to London?

Billy said...

hey man how do i access the downtown pilot on the dvd? is that an easter egg? or was it just shown in that behind the scenes featurette?

Billy said...

hey man how do i access the pilot? is it an easter egg? or was it just shown in that behind the scenes bonus?

Theresa said...

Why, oh, why do good shows have to be cancelled?

NoodlesMcFilthy said...

Hey Man.. What are my chances of getting a copy shipped to Ireland?? I've been waiting forever to own this on DVD!!

Seriously one of the best animated shows ever...

Yohan said...

hi, this a great news, but is there french version or french subs on these DVDs ?

Crump!!! said...

Finally!!! CAnt wait to get it man!!!
-Rob Crump

John said...

I remember I tried buying this a few years back on VHS. But I got shafted what was up with that? I will order this when I get paid again soon because I have been waiting for this thing for a few years now. It was a great show. Thanks for putting this out.

Simon said...

ouch i'm four months late haha
nothing confirmed yet but do you ship to a wee place called malaysia?
thanks so much for making this happen ;)

Alex said...

best wishes, Alex Rostov
Tallinn, EStonia

Daniel said...

Hey Chris,

Do you still have these DVDs available? I live in Toronto, Canada so I'm hoping shipping here will no no problem.

Thanks

littlesis said...

Hello
I was wondering how long would it take for the DVD to find it's way to New Jersey. I'm down my the shore and would love some " Downtown" for my summer.

yori2004 said...

Hi, I received my copy yesterday. It's a little bit hard to understand because I'm french, but that's a good way to improve my english. Downtown was on air in 2001 in France and I've never seen an episode since this time. I'm so happy to have the complete series now. Thanks for your work on it.

Daniel said...

Yori, when did you order the DVD? Was it recently?

Eugene said...

Wondering how long shipping takes? Ordered on July 10 and can't wait to see Downtown once again!

Thank you Thank you Thank you!

chris p said...

Hey folks. Sorry it's taken me so long to post on here again. As far as the shipping time, here's the basic deal...
1. You order on Paypal 2. I forward your address to our receptionist here at the studio 3. She puts a dvd in a puffy envelope. 4. She goes to the post office every Friday and sends out any dvds that have been ordered via regular old snail mail.
We are based in LA, so I guess the shipping time varies, depending on how far away you might be. If you happen to order on a Saturday, it's like an extra week since they don't get dropped off until Friday.

chris p said...

Other stuff-

-Sorry, no subtitles or foreign language versions. I only had the English tapes to make the dvd.

-We'll ship anywhere in the world as long as you don't mind waiting for regular mail. I also can't guarantee it won't get lost in customs!

-If it's been a really long time since you've ordered the dvd and you still haven't received it, email jamie@titmouse.net and let her know. She can probably figure out when it shipped.

-the Easter eggs are the Megas toy commercial (back when it was called Lowbrow) and 2 Titmouse Smashing Party videos - one that we used as our "all staff meeting" video on Megas.

-I can't remember where the pilot animatic is. It's probably hard to find!

-Thanks for all the support! I didn't realize so many people remembered the show. I'm pleased to know that it will go down in history as a "cult classic."

OmarSnake said...

Last night I decided to try to burn my eight-year old videotape of the show to DVD. turned out I was missing some episodes, and the tracking was wiggy, and so on. But man the show held up well! Then i go on imdb and find out about this DVD. Ordered it this morning. I can't wait.

banky23 said...

Had the set for a while now and it's amazing.

Question though, possibly a returded one,

The music on the commentaries menu, is that a real track, by which I mean can I download it from somewhere.

I went through a phase of just leaving the player on that menu while I was doin nowt

Brad said...

hey liked the series when it was on air. u still making/ distributing dvds? also would really like a megas xlr dvd.

Dane said...

downtown remains one of the most compelling and inspiring works of animation i've seen. every bit of timing and dialogue was spot on. i just placed a DVD order on paypal, hopefully the dvd ordering is still working.

Jill said...

this is way too exciting!! ever since i was a little girl i knew i would end up in NYC; i finally made the move a few months ago and have actually sat in the train several times playig back various scenes from the series in my mind. wild, right? lol i can't believe i'll be able to see the long lost episodes (that none of my friends seem to remember) all over again! i haven't been this obsessed with an animated series since i thought i was aeon flux circa 1990. ;) thaaaaaaanks chris, i'm ordering the series as we speak...

xo

do you have a myspace page? :)

Nerisa said...

Thank you so much for putting Downtown on DVD for us fans! You do not know how long I've been searching for VHS or DVD of the series (since mtv stopped airing it).

I'm a student at SVA studying traditonal animation. A few of the professors bring up working on the show with you every so often. Doug Crane had nothing but praise for your talent and work. I find myself from time to time watching your studios reel for inspiration!

I can't wait for my DVD to arrive in the mail. Thanks again and I wish you the best of luck with your studio. Keep up the awesome work!

-Nerisa

Michelle Klein-Hass said...

OMG!!! I'm so there!!!!

Michelle

Michelle Klein-Hass said...

Chris...sent you the money via PayPal and so far no joy, even though we live in the same town!

I'm willing to go by the office and physically pick up my DVD set, if that will make things simpler for you.

My VHS tapes are dying. I need this DVD set. Please make a Downtown fangirl happy...please???

chris p said...

Hey Michelle-

Did you get it yet? If not, contact jamie@titmouse.net.

ryan said...

hi love your show and watched it all the time on ytv at night, best show ever man..i would like to order it but how long will it take to get to edmonton,canada??

thanks

C. Patrick Carolan said...

I put in an order for one of them "Promotional DVD Packages" via PayPal... um, quite a long time ago now. No sign of anything on my end. Is it normally taking a few months to ship these to Canada?

chris p said...

I don't think it should take over a month to get to Canada. If you've ordered a dvd, but haven't recieved it yet, please contact jamie@titmouse.net. She sends out any dvds every Friday. Maybe it got lost in the mail or slipped through the cracks over here. If you send jamie your info, she'll make sure it gets to you!

Shannon said...

All right! I just ordered one for my brother for Christmas. He'll go nuts! Thanks for such an awesome DVD and an amazing show!

Triumph said...

Risking being redundant; I wanted to know if I could still order the Downtown DVD set from you.

It would be super super keen. <3 I love your work.

cytenn15 said...

Hey I would LOVE to get the series but I'm more than a little tenative (I orderdered Mtv's Daria box set and lost $90 in the process when the the company proved itself less than legitamate then up and skipped off the face of the world...apparently to an island...)Is there any guarantee at all? Or is it more of a "trust me because...well....what other choice do you have?" kinda deal?? Sorry if any of that came off cynical...your show is badass.

chris p said...

Triumph-
We still have dvds available. You can definitely order one

Cytenn15-
I can only give you my word. But if you order it and it shows up broken or something, let me know we'll send you another one.

Kay said...

I've placed an order. I just want to know if it was sent off yet.

chris p said...

contact jamie@titmouse.net to see if your dvd has shipped

Half said...

I believe I'm one of very few people in Israel who have seen the series before and actually knows it exists..
The DVD is awesome. I'm really happy I got it..You're doing a great job. Too bad it's not on air anymore.

Jarvis said...

WOW!
My x-mas pressie to myself :D

I saw half of these EP's years ago, it's been on my list of things to find for ages.

You star! - jarv

Trogdinator said...

Dude please please please tell me you're still shipping these!

chris p said...

Trog-

yep. you can still order them.

Darrell said...

I saw this excellent series years ago on MTV in South Africa and have always wanted a copy of the series.
Now I'm in London - so what's the postage to get a set of the DVD's to jolly ol England?

chris p said...

No extra shipping cost for London as long as you're cool with regular old mail.

Adolfo said...

Hi! I loved downtown! thx u so much! how much is shipping to italy? ;)

Alexis Picar said...

holy crap! so it IS available!!! i'm definitely buying this once i figure out what the hell paypal is hahaahah!

man, between this, Megas and Metalocalypse?
*bows down to you*

Alexis Picar said...

oh! i didn't know i could pay with my credit card! i've put my order right away! woooooot!!!

thank you very much for this Chris!!!

chris p said...

adolfo-

We'll ship to Italy for no extra cost if you don't mind waiting for regular old mail.

Darrell said...

Excellent! I've just placed my order. I cannot wait to get the DVD's. Downtown was one of the best things on TV at the time. The double bill with Daria was the best hour of the week back in the day. I know a few people who'll fall over backwards when they see I have a set :-)
Thanks a bunch for getting control of your creation and making sure that us fans can still enjoy it.

Trogdinator said...

Hey Chris I ordered the dvd's about two weeks ago and still haven't got them, I tried e-mailing jamie@titmouse.net 3 days ago and haven't gotten a reply.

I'm just wondering if they were shipped, or maybe they got lost in the mail or something, I live in Los Angeles.

/=

smacky said...

Same question: I placed an order on December 13, emailed Jamie a few days ago, haven't heard back. Ship yet? Thanks.

chris p said...

Hey Trogdinator and Smacky-

Jamie was out sick for a week. She's back in now. And things were also shut down for a week over the holidays. Hopefully they've been sent out. I just forwarded her your posts. You should be hearing back shortly.

Alex said...

just received it in the mail today! BOOYAH!!! thank you so much!

Joss said...

Received my copy two days ago. AWESOME. Got my younger sister hooked on it, too. I'm so glad this was released. Thanks for your hard work!

Rob said...

Hey Chris, thanks for giving the world Downtown, it's seriously one of the most witty and stylish things I've ever seen. I just discovered the show recently and I'm already hooked. It's a shame I never saw it when it was on, but then I probably wouldn't have appreciated it the same way back when I was 13 or so.
I want a get the show on DVD but are you able to ship to England? Let me know because I'm happy to support your terrific animation.

Thanks, Rob.

pavel said...

Just got the DVD, and am halfway through the first episode - this is fantastic! I think it's the first TV show I've seen where the dialogue actually sounds natural, but without being boring. Fucking great show.

Rob said...

Just wondering if the dvds are on the way...

chris p said...

hey rob-

Send an email to jamie@titmouse.net if you have not yet received your dvd set. She will know the drill.

Rob said...

Hey, thanks Chris, and Jamie and everyone. It just turned up today. I like the way you've made all the characters kind of translucent on the front. Looking at it, it took me a while to realize. Jen looks like she's a ghost or something, because you can see the background coming through her sleeves the most. I'm looking forward to watching the rest of the story now because I've only seen the first 3 or 4 episodes.
Thanks again.

Angus Blair said...

This looks fantastic, would there be a way to arrange international shipping? I'm all the way down in New Zealand.

Jim said...

What is the space age pop song for the opening of Train Pain? I need it for my bachelor pad!

Colton said...

I placed my order a week or so ago and am eagerly awaiting its arrival. Thanks a bunch for making this available.

Björn said...

Hello Chris,

I would also like to know if it's possible for you to ship outside us. I live in Sweden and would appreciate if you could get in touch via email. Thanks in advance.

chris p said...

Hi Bjorn-

We'll ship to Sweden as long as you don't mind the slowest shipping process.

Matthew said...

Hi Chris,

I paypal'd payment of 25usd to kate@titmouse.net for the downtown dvd back in December, it's been four months but unfortunately i haven't yet received it.

Any chance you could look into this for me?

my email was m_t112@hotmail.com and the transaction went through on the same day (dec.6, 2007). Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Love your show, hopefully I'll get the dvd soon!

Cheers,
Matt

chris p said...

Hey Matt-

I see the payment. It came through as Edwin Tsang. Does that sound right? Maybe it got lost in the mail. We'll send another one right away.

AARON said...

I remember watching Downtown on YTV so many years ago. It was on past midnight and I think it was played with Daria and The Maxx. It seemed like one day Downtown just disapeared from the air, I don't know if they even played all the episodes. I have always remembered this show. Words can not explain how amazing it is that you've done this! To have this promotional dvd means so much. I wish that Sam Keith would reappear (his website hasn't been updated since 2004 and even then it didn't seem like it was run by him or anyone in close contact with him) and do the same with The Maxx.

Sorry if anyone has asked this but I looked through the comments and didn't see anything so:

I'm in Canada, what do I need to adjust to the payment amount to get my copy?

Again, Chris, THANK YOU soooo much for this!

PDX Livin said...

Hi...I'm a great fan of the series and am very eager to get the promotional copy. I already paid for the shipping and handling, BUT the default shipping address is wrong (I have moved). I can't find your email address. Could you email me? My email address is jefferyp@gmail.com. The wrong address is a Portland address that has "Mill" in the street name. Thanks!

Antonio said...

Any chance of their being a DVD for British DVD players?

French Pirate said...

Hey Chris! I am French living in Ireland and I appreciate MTV Downtown so much I want my friends to enjoy it as much. Unfortunately, it's hard to follow when your English isn't that good and even for me it's tough as there are a lot of references to American subcultures I don't get.

I am willing to produce French subtitles for all 13 episodes. So far, I have only translated Insomnia (http://www.opensubtitles.com/en/subtitles/3159043/downtown-fr) but I mustering my courage for the rest of the series. If by any chance you could send me the scripts, it would help me a great deal! I'd be happy to hand the subtitles to you once the job's done.

Anyway, thank you so much for this show!

French Pirate

chris p said...

antonio-

I didn't do any region coding on these dvds, so I believe they should play in any ntsc dvd player. I don't think I'll be able to pull off PAL dvds any time soon.

french pirate-

That's great! I checked out your subtitles. Nice! It's so cool to see that people still care enough about the show to do something like this.

Unfortunately I no longer have any scripts. When I left MTV, I didn't think to take them. But I don't think they would have helped very much anyway. We did so much improv with the actors to achieve the conversational dialogue that the actual audio track rarely resembled the script.

Julien said...

Thanks for you reply Chris!
The main episode I am having hard times with is Sin Bin, especially the first minute. If yourself or any New York native could transcribe it for me, that would be awesome!

Julien said...

Sorry Chris, it's a bit confusing. I actually am French Pirate.
Julien

chris p said...

Hey Julien/French Pirate-

Thanks for rocking these subtitles. Unfortunately, I don't think that I'll be able to do any transcripts any time soon.

I'll keep my ears open for anyone who might be interested, though

Liz said...

Hooray, I was so glad to find this and have ordered my copy!

I blame this show for making my impressionable 13-year-old self think it was awesome to live in a dumpy apartment in the city when it aired. And now I'm living the dream!

AARON said...

Ordered my copy earlier this evening. Looking forward to it arriving, hopefully sometime later this month.

Again, thank you so much for this.

mrpoonz said...

Hey Chris, my paypal account is out of action, is there any other way of paying?
I amimated on this show, would love to get them on DVD as we weren't given tapes of the last few eps. I also worked with Frankie G in London for a couple of years on Cramp Twins which was a strange coincidence!

Balugante said...

Hi, this is Jannali Robyn-Jones, I payed for my dvd package and can't wait for the show to arrive as I loved downtown when it was on the air. Just wanted to make sure there were no problems sending it to me here in Australia. PLEASE send it by airmail however, I am willing to pay a bit extra if necessary as I don't want to wait months for sometimes unreliable sea shipping as I have had bad experiences with it in the past. Please email me back about what kind of air mail you can use and if you need any extra for the cost of it at the address tied to my paypal account.

PolyVector said...

Hey Chris,
I paypal'd kate(AT)titmouse.net $25 USD on April 29th and haven't received a copy yet. I emailed kate a few days ago but haven't heard back. Junk mail filter? :)

I'm really anxious to get my hands on a copy! If you need any info my email is: oren(AT)punklabs.com

Thanks in advance! We're big fans of Downtown and Metalocalypse over here at Punk Labs.

Balugante said...

Heya, thin is Jannali again. Thankyou so much, got the DVDs (and they arrived quite quickly for international shipping), they're great, I finally get to see everything, and in such great quality. Thanks for doing this for your fans chris, we really appreciate it :)

Edmund said...

I have just payed the $25 earlier today but would like to inquire if I can pay a little extra for more secure postage to Malaysia? My email is glow360@hotmail.com

Finn said...

Just found out about this... Definitely buying it when I get paid (currently kinda skint).
Do I have to pay extra to get it sent to the UK?

PolyVector said...

Just got my copy today, it looks great. Thanks!

wookyfion said...

Hi all, just fall on this site a month ago, lokks like amazing to have finally Downtown in such quality.

I just bought it today from France, can't wait to have those DVD !

chris p said...

No extra to ship to other countries, but we only ship regular mail.

thanks!

fallout11 said...

I've been waiting for this for years, can't thank you enough Chris.

Matt said...

Might I say thank you...fuck i've missed this show.

The Tone King said...

Is it actual factory made DVDs or burned DVDs made on a computer? Because I've seen official releases like this on the Internet before turn out to be legit, but still burned DVDs.

If I am throwing money down for a DVD set, I like to know it was professionally made in a real factory, not just burned off on some computer. Even if it's legit, and the creator has every right to release it that way, burned DVDs still feel like a bootleg to me and I've had quality issues with burned DVDs in the past I'd like to avoid.

chris p said...

Actual 100% factory made dvds! I mean, I assume they were made in a factory. I wasn't actually there. They may have been made in an office building or something with professional dvd making machines. But they are definitely not burned. They are even screen printed full color, not slapped with crappy sticker style labels.

Edmund said...

Received the dvds today! THANKS!!

Demian said...

hey Chris, me and my girlfriend we are huge fans of you're work.
and only today was it that we found out we can get the "Downtown" DVD.
but one problem we live in Israel...
and we kinda of wandered, can it be shipped abroad? hope you can answer us.

chris p said...

Yes.It can be shipped to Israel. Glad you dig the show!

Ms. Mahogany said...

OMG!!! Finally I've found it. Save me a copy. I'm too poor to buy now. :) Thx.

I had actually given up looking for this series to show up on any kind of official DVD and about a year ago backed my old worn out VHS copies up on DVR discs. I saw your post on IMDB while looking up some info on one of the voice talents and about crapped myself.

THANK YOU SO MUCH CHRIS!!! I just placed an order and may get more for gifts. It is so cool that you are doing this for your fans and it is also cool how many other people in the world have a place in their heart for this awesome series. Just picked up the first season of Metalocalypse and love it.

HAPPY HAPPY JOY JOY!!!

Corey Grajkowski said...

I just payed my 25$. I'm really looking forward to seeing it in the mail.

Thanks a bunch.

Handsome Rob said...

It"s been a long time since I've seen Downtown! I lost all my old vhs copies from MTV and it cool as freak that you remember the fans of this show! I ordered mine about a week and half ago and can't wait till they get here! I've told buddies that miss the show to so expect more following. Thanks

Rashid said...

Arg, I'd love to get this, but DVDs sent to Namibia: Hah, they'd never make it. A postal employee in Windhoek would give them to his kids. Maybe I can have them sent to my address in the States, then they'd be waiting for me when I came back.

verdatum said...

I've wanted this for years, and my copy just arrived today. I gotta say, it is gorgeous. This would've been a bargain at twice the price! I'm only two episodes in, and speaking as a major commentary geek, I already put this as one of my all-time favorites. Since the commentaries appear to have been done during the wind-down of Megas XLR, and before Metalocalypse, the comments about "Cartoon Network is gonna fire us any day now" are especially amusing. I can't wait to force my animation-major friends to watch this (especially the ones at SVA)!

A dream come true *wipes away a tear*... I can't believe it took almost two years to find out about this. Payment made immeidately.

DJ said...

WHOA MAN!!! No way, this is awesome!!! I've been watching lame torrent versions of this show trying to get my fix, but half of those don't even work. Thanks SO much for doing this!!

Jaren Face said...

Hey Chris,

I was just wondering. What's the difference between the promotional DVD you're offering here, and the one George K is offering over at http://georgekrstic.blogspot.com?

Other than the extra $5 and his being supposedly signed, is there any difference?

Regardless, this is a pretty sweet deal. Thanks for letting me grab something that I grew up with.

chris p said...

Jaren-

It's exactly the same dvd.

Raul said...

cheers Chris! thanks a mil for this amazing opportunity!

just one thing though ... is there any way possible that you could ship this to Romania?

chris p said...

Hey Raul-

We can try. We ship via regular old, international mail. I'm not sure what the customs situation is like in Romania. But if you buy it, we will ship it.

Northern Star said...

Thanks a million!!!!!

DVDs are beautiful, thanks!

Shmooman said...

Hey, saw this on (UK) MTV2 ages ago, and for some reason remebered it again recently, and have been really wanting to watch it again. Before i purchase the promo dvds, i just wanted to ask if you'll be okay sending the DVDs to the UK? I also was wondering if they had any region encoding on them that would mean i couldn't play them on my Region 2 DVD player (seeing as they come from america, which is region 1). I'm sorry if these questions have already been asked, but i just wanted to ensure i'll be able to enjoy these dvds in their full glory!

Aside from that, i just wanted to say that Downtown is one of my all time favourite shows (from what i remeber of it), so well done on the great work and everything, and all the best luck for future work, i hope it will get all the recognition it deserves. Sorry if that sounds a bit sycophanitc, my fanboyism got the better of me :).

chris p said...

Hi Schmooman-

Thanks. Glad you dig the show. Yeah, we'll ship to UK. We just use regular mail. No extra cost. The dvds are region free.

Adun said...

Hey chris,

1. There is any DVD left on stock?
2. Can you ship this to israel?

Will said...

I ordered mine back on the 16th and haven't gotten it yet. I'm also wondering if you still have any in stock?

chris p said...

Will-

Sometimes it takes a while to get the dvds out. Where are you located? If you haven't received it in 4-6 weeks, definitely let me know.

Will said...

I'm in Texas. I'll keep checking the mail box this week, thanks chris.

Adun said...

Chris? You forgot about me?

chris p said...

Adun, sorry, I thought I posted this but here goes...

yes - in stock.

yes - Israel.

:)

Adun said...

O.K!

But! I never ordered something from abroad and from pay pal...

How does it works?
How can I be sure that i receive the DVD?

chatri3 said...

Attel said...

Hey Chris I paid of the DVD couple weeks back on March 3. I was wondering how that's coming... FYI I am in Canada and my email is: tommy_pang_1987@hotmail.com

Attel said...

Just finish a marathon watching of the DVDs..GREAT!!!!!!!!

emily said...

Can I order this thru money order? I dont like to use card transactions online. Thanks

Robin said...

Hi, I sent money about a week ago, and still no confirmation/reply. Even emailed titmouse directly... any way I can find out about my order?

MetalRyde said...

i order a copy of the show on dvd here on the 24th of april. just wanted to know whats the average time before a person gets their copy?

chris p said...

Hey Robin-

Do you know the date of your paypal transaction? I'll check and make sure we received it.

chris p said...

Hey MetalRyde-

It varies, usually about 2 weeks, depending on what part of the world you're in. We did run out and had to order more. Since your dvd has not arrived, it must have happened around the back order. I'll look into it and get back to you...

Robin said...

hey chris, thanks for responding. the date and time on my receipt is 29 Apr. 2009 23:30:17 BST

Yannick said...

I've been checking this page often. Are the quality of these Episodes on the DVD as good as seen on TV?

I've downloaded some episode in the past and got some with horrid sounds levels and some has some glitches in them.

Please email me at evilinhell2[a]hotmail[point]com

(Note, [a] means "at" and so on.)

Auroreally said...

Hey Chris- its Aurora- I did the voice od "Mecca" on Downtown- you remember...? Would love to catch up but mostly wondering- is there any way I can snag one of those DVD sets sans charge? Would be happy to meet up in the City to save shipping fees :)

chris p said...

Hey Aurora!

Yeah, absolutely! Look me up on Facebook and we can exchange info...

-Chris P

Skillcrane said...

Wow, how awesome to find that after all these years a dvd quality version of this series is available. I've recently been watching the horrible Polish rips I downloaded years ago, & so did a bit of Googling to see if I could find out more about the series. What a great surprise. Absolutely connected with this show & the characters at the time it was originally released. I wish I could say the same thing for most animated series.

Just wanted to verify that these are still available & ready for shipping. Definitely want to pick one up. Thanks in advance.

4 horsemen said...

Is this DVD still available?

chris p said...

Yes! The dvd is still available.

Skillcrane said...

Thanks Chris! I just hit "Pay Now". Looking forward to receiving the DVD.

ryan said...

just finished the order and cant wait to watch it with my friends again thanks for havin this on dvd...

Kasie said...

Do these FREE episodes play well, like if I were to play any other dvd purchased from a wal-mart, FYE, target, etc.?

AND - has anyone purchased, received and watched these to attest to actually getting them and them working as opposed to getting ripped off?

ryan said...

hey chris hows it going?
i ordered the dvd over a month ago and i still have not got anything in the mail as of yet would u like me to resend u my info??

thanks;ryan

chris p said...

Hey Ryan-

chris p said...

Hey Ryan-

It must have been lost in the mail. We'll send out another one right away. Don't worry about shipping charges! I just want people to have these episodes if they want them!

Chris P

Lydie said...

hello Chris !

i've just discovered this blog, and it's really a pleasure to hear from this show again !! are there copys of the dvd still left ? i'm in france right now, but moving to new york by the end of january, shall i wait to be in NYC to order my dvd ?

Thanks a lot !

chris p said...

Hi Lydie-

We do have some left. I think you would probably receive it faster if you waited until you were in New York. Sometimes it takes a while, especially for overseas shipment.

thanks,
Chris P

downtown said...

you can find some of the downtown soundtrack on archive.org's snapshot of mtv's site back from 2001:

http://web.archive.org/web/*sr_1nr_100/http://www.mtv.com/mtv/tubescan/animation/downtown/sounds/*

Allison said...

Hey are you still selling the promotional dvds? I loved this show in highschool, hope you still have some left

chris p said...

Yeah, we still have some.

And, yes, I'll host those songs on this blog!

Josef said...

Just ordered the DVD. I have been watching downloaded episodes though, and i haven't been digging anything like this since i watched the first season of ren & stimpy. Big thanks for this great series!!

downtown said...

i sent an email to chris and jamie@titmouse with instructions for the downtown soundtrack.

Allison said...

Yay my dvd came today! Thank you so much!

soulstar216 said...

chris p said...

Soulstar-

We still have some! If you order, it usually takes about 2-3 weeks to receive.

Monkeyman said...

Wow...I've heard of this but never
got the chance to see it at all! D:
Any chance at all of there being
any of these dvds left or maybe you

PLEASE GOD! lol
-Doug

downtown said...

chris, did you get my mail about the downtown soundtrack? were you able to download all of the tracks?

Joshna said...

hi
Can you perhaps ship to south Africa?

chris p said...

Hi Joshna-

We can, but we just ship regular mail - so I'm not sure how long it will take...

Tomer said...

Hi Chris

I'm so happy to see that you're still here !
I love Downtown and have been looking for it for a long time. I was pretty surprised it's not on Netflix !

Anyway, I live in West Hollywood and would love to but a copy of the DVD's. can I just come to your place instead of you mailing it to me ?

please let me know.
Thanks, Tommy

mim said...

will you ship to Portugal? I know, I know, regular mail :)

Erin said...

I loved this show. Are the discs still available?

denomes said...

I too am wondering if there are sets still available?

MC said...

I just ordered and received them about a week and a half ago, so it seems like it.

chris p said...

Erin and Denomes-

Yes, MC is correct. I definitely have a bunch left. It usually takes a couple weeks for shipping.

Thanks!

Ilclub said...

I recieved the DVDs last week, this is my favourite cartoon series ever. Many thanks from Italy.

Erin said...

I just got my set. It's so great to see this series again. Now I can stop searching for that unlabeled VHS tape I lost god knows how long ago. Thanks so much!

chris p said...

thanks Ilclub and Erin. Glad you guys dig it!

bato said...

I'm so ordering one tonight.
