Release of The Green Hornet TV show (1966) on DVD
We, the undersigned, are petitioning Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment for the release of the 1966-1967 television show, The Green Hornet, in DVD and/or Blu-Ray format, citing the following reasons: 1. Popularity: Since the original run of the show in the 1966-67 season on ABC TV, The Green Hornet has remained popular in syndication, in comic book form, and in the movie currently being filmed. In formats other than the syndication of the original series, storyline and visual references consistently derive specifically from the original television series, recognizing the importance of the series in the overall history of The Green Hornet. 2. Marketing: Twentieth Century Fox recognizes the benefits of consistently offering The Green Hornet for syndication despite its very limited single season run. The series captures the interest not only of Green Hornet fans, but also of the considerably large and ever-growing fan base of the late Bruce Lee, who starred as Kato. The Green Hornet television program is mentioned in every biography, in print and on film, of the martial arts legend. The Green Hornet television show is still well known, and would be relatively easy to market in DVD/Blu-Ray form. 3. Available Extras: Outtakes and theme music from the series can be easily found on YouTube, demonstrating an interest in the sort of behind-the-scenes extras found on other DVD releases of other shows. With the two original cars known as The Black Beauty, built for the series by customizer Dean Jeffries, now restored and available to the public, new, never-before-seen extras, can also be added. 4. Fight Piracy: As mentioned above, YouTube is full of Green Hornet footage, with even full episodes broken up and posted for downloading. Bootleg copies are available on eBay, in Bittorrent downloads, and even seen advertised on this page. These copies are substandard in quality and illegal. We would prefer, and pay for, the high quality of properly issued legal copies.
