How many sets are there from Universal's "Franchise" collection?

These sets seem to be a great idea, with 4-8 classic movies for a very cheap price.

What titles are included so far?

Here are the ones I know of:
  • Adventures of Francis the Talking Mule
  • Adventures of Ma & Pa Kettle vols. 1-2
  • Airport:Terminal Pack
  • American Graffiti Drive-In Double Feature
  • Best of Abbott & Costello vols. 1-3
  • Conan: The Complete Quest (does this count?)
  • Don Knotts 4-Movie Reluctant Hero
  • Dragonheart: 2 Legendary Tales
  • Firestarter: Two-Movie Collection
  • Flinstones Yabba-Dabba 2 Pack
  • Imitation of Life: Two Movie Collection
  • K-9: The Patrol Pack
  • Michael Flatley Collection
  • On the Road with Bob Hope and Bing Crosby
  • Problem Child: Tantrum Pack (Full screen only?)
  • Rock Hudson and Doris Day (does this count?)
  • Smokey and the Bandit Pursuit Pack

Airport:Terminal Pack...all 4 Airport movies in the franchise (nice set, by the way, especially when you can pick up something like this for less than $20 like I did)

I love these releases - this should be the standard for releasing older series of films. My only complaint is that they could have done all the Ma & Pa Kettle films in one release (same thing with the upcoming Francis the Talking Mule volumes).

I am not sure of the total, but I have the following:

01: The Best Of Bud Abbott And Lou Costello Volume 1
02: The Best Of Bud Abbott And Lou Costello Volume 2
03: The Adventures Of Ma & Pa Kettle Volume 1
04: The Adventures Of Ma & Pa Kettle Volume 2
05: Airport TErminal Pack
06: The Flintstones Yabba Dabba 2-Pack
07: Dragonheart: 2 Legendary Tales
08: American Graffiti Drive-In Double Feature
09: Conan The Complete Quest
10: Smokey And The Bandit Pursuit Pack
11: On The Road With Bob Hope And Bing Crosby

There are others, but I am not sure what they are. Universal is releasing a large number of catalog titles in this series.

I think the Deanna Durbin Sweetheart Collection, due 4 August 2004, is another "franchise" release.

It is.

Looking forward to this one. It's nice to see them releasing more "franchises" of yester-year.

I finally cracked open my Francis DVD last night. Took me back to when my grandfather & I used to watch these on TV during summer vacations. My grandad used to howl at these things! The Chill Wills voiceovers are pretty damn funny. The one I remember most fondly is probably the worst of the series - the Haunted House film. O'Connor and Wills had both bailed at that point, but it's still my favorite!
