Just curious ... where is "THE MAN CALLED FLINTSTONE"?

I'm racking my brain trying to get my hands on this title! Originally delayed from last December, "THE MAN CALLED FLINTSTONE" was rescheduled to coincide with the release of "THE FLINTSTONES: SEASON THREE" on March 22, 2005. I've heard no word from Warner Home Video about a delay and I've ordered it on three different websites. No disc or delay info yet.

Can anyone hook a brother up? Pleeeeeaaasse!!!

Basically, the DVD was pulled but a number still made it out to stores. There seem to be a couple copies listed on Amazon's Used/New section.

Is that what you're looking for?

I work at a Video Store, and we've had that for quite a while now.

The December release was delayed to March 22, and it indeed shipped on time.

I've heard that Wal-Mart is your best bet, but not in the kids' area like you'd expect. Try New Releases. I'm going to look at my local superstore tomorrow if I get the time.

It seems like this DVD is available in Canada but not in the U.S.

Saw this on Amazon.com under the User reviews:

=====================================================

NO RELEASE FOR THE NEAR FUTURE! Here is why..., July 8, 2005
Reviewer: Paul J. Mular (San Carlos, CA USA)

Warner Brothers has run into many legal snags in getting this movie to DVD home video.

1) There are many songs in the movie that Warner does not own the rights to. When the movie was released to theaters it was a Columbia Picture and ColGems was their music rights division.

2) Apparently Hanna Barbera did not own all rights to this movie and their first movie "HEY THERE IT'S YOGI BEAR", they were partnered with Columbia Pictures. When Turner Entertainment bought Hanna Barbera they did not get clear rights to these Hanna Barbera Movies. Therefore when Turner sold his library to Warner Brothers, Warner didn't get clear rights to these Hanna Barbera Movies.

3) Yes, the DVDs were produced (without the Wilma Flintstone Columbia Logo) and withdrawn.

4) Warner will not give out any more information to be posted on the web, but the legal issues do not stop here.

5) The legal problems are so bad that YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO SEE "THE MAN CALLED FLINTSTONE" ON TELEVISION EITHER!

Keep those old VHS tapes & Laserdiscs in good shape, that is all you will have for some time until some agreements are reached.
