I want my OLD Alvin on DVD !!!!!!
26 October 2003 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

I have great memories of watching the "old" Alvin show on Saturday morning in the 1960's. I would really like to see the the episodes, unedited, released on DVD. I have seen segmets of the show on a Nickelodeon show ten years ago and I believe Walt Disney owns the rights now as there are "sing-a-long" tapes on the market. Can't they just put the whole episode on DVD, including Prof. Crashcup?
