ProStars, C.O.P.S., StarCom + other toons on DVD?

I was looking through the $5.88 bin at Walmart and found a DVD with episodes of ProStars, a 1991 Saturday morning cartoon about Michael Jordan, Wayne Gretsky and Bo Jackson saving the world on a weekly basis. This doesn't seem to be available online anywhere, for some reason, even on Walmart.com.

What I really found interesting was that on the back it said to look for two other cartoon series on DVD: StarCom: The U.S. Space Force , a 1987 toy commerical disguised as children's programming and C.O.P.S., a 1988 cartoon about "fighting crime in a future time" (the year 2020).

I hadn't heard anything about these until reading that disc, and since I didn't check the company distributing the ProStars DVD, I'm not sure which company might be releasing these (or have released them already). Rhino would be the obvious guess, but who knows when you're talking about some of this bargain bin fare.

In any case, I'm wondering if anyone else has heard anything about these titles. Thanks!

Wow, ProStars rocked...though it always ticked me off how Jordan would have no time to hang with Wayne and Bo. Then again, he was on his way to winning a championship that year. I'd totally buy that for $5.88 if I saw it. No Walmarts near me though.

That's because it's not out yet... but will be "coming soon".
