DVD availability
15 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For a short time,Image Entertainment bundled this cartoon onto a single DVD with two other pieces directed by Faith Hubley:"The Hubley Collection:"Everybody Rides The Carousel'". Unfortunately,this is a collectible item-at the time of this post,one seller at Amazon listed a copy for a low,low 250 dollars. My savvy son picked up a used copy a couple of years ago for under five bucks.Till then,the only copy I had found was a Beta version of the Doonesbury Special and I was unable to get anyone to dub a copy to VHS. Like a starving man with a can of beans and no can opener...

Thirty years since its original broadcast and,like Mike in the film, many of us are still wondering what happened to all of us and that spirit to change the world for the better. Trudeau still fights the good fight,one daily comic strip at a time.
