No, it's been out for months.

I really dug the list, though; let's petition for 'When Things Were Rotten'. I've never seen it, I'm just curious.

Isn't Paramount doing a "Get Smart" movie this year? I'm sure the TV series will begin to be released once the movie hits.

I love Mel's movies as well and was able to get The Twelve Chairs and the Producers SE on DVD when they came out.

Robin Hood Men in Tights is the one I'm really looking forward to.

I knew it was out, I'll change it to clarify that.

My favorite of all the Mel Brooks films. One of my first DVD purchases. Definitely needs an upgrade.

Same here, except, I've still haven't bought the current version . . . I'm still holding out.

A good release of this would be the fulfillment of one of my greatest long-time "wants".

"High Anxiety -- whenever you're near,
High Anxiety -- it's you that I fear.
My heart's afraid to fly, it's crashed before.
But then you take my hand, and my heart starts to soar
Once more. . . Key change!

High Anxiety -- it's always the same.
High Anxiety -- it's you that I blame.
It's very clear to me, I've got to give in!
High Anxiety --
-- and remember, kids, be good to your folks - they've
been good to you --
-- you win!"

What about his 1963 Oscar-winning animated short The Critic? (Mel wrote and did the voicework) Is it available in any format?

My top 30 "that aren't available" currently include:
Get Smart TV Series
Robin Hood: Men In Tights


and a tie in:

The Nude Bomb

Where the heck are these?

I could be wrong, but the "older version" is the same DVD as the current "SE" anniversary release just with slightly different packaging.

I would like to have an updated History of the World, but I NEED a Robin Hood Men In Tights release. That is the only older release that I'm waiting for. Please Fox release this DVD!

It isn't available, I had passed over it since it was only 4 minutes long, and I don't see a DVD release just for that (although it would be funny if Mel released it... a 4 minute main piece, and 2 hours of supplements!)

I will add it to the list, maybe it could be included as an extra on another title.

From the Digital Bits Rumor Mill:
A lot of you have also been asking about the Mel Brooks promotion that Fox had planned for March (High Anxiety was among the titles expected). As we mentioned the other day, this has been delayed indefinitely. The reason apparently is that Fox wants to really give these films the attention they deserve on DVD. Special editions are planned, they're just going to take some time to realize.
Does anyone know the other titles rumored? Based on random posts here at DVD Talk, I believe one could be Sillent Movie, but I am not certain.

IGN.com had a story back at the begining of the month that a Mel Brooks box set annoucement could come around August. And the best part is that Men In Tights (My favorite Brooks film) should FINALLY be released on that set. And I'm hoping that it would be released as a stand alone disc as well, but I would buy the box set just for MIT.
