Los Angeles, CA (August 16) - Take a comedic trip down memory lane with Ted Mosby as he re-lives the story of his single life in New York with his best friends and the tale of how he met his soul mate when HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER Season 6: The New Is Always Better Edition arrives on DVD September 27 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.

Golden Globe® and Emmy Award® nominee Neil Patrick Harris (“Doogie Howser, M.D.”) leads a stellar ensemble cast including Alyson Hannigan (“Buffy The Vampire Slayer”), Jason Segel (Forgetting Sarah Marshall), Josh Radnor (“Freaks & Geeks”) and Cobie Smulders (“The L Word”) in the hit comedy that dissects the trials and tribulations of dating life in New York City. The show is narrated by an older version of Ted (Bob Saget; “Full House”) as he fondly recalls adventures from his single days with his friends to his children.

HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER Season 6: The New Is Always Better Edition comes with all 24 episodes and is filled with hilarious never-before-seen footage including deleted scenes, featurettes, a gag reel, commentaries, an extended performance of “Stand By Me” and much more. The ARP for the DVD is $29.99.

The highly acclaimed series and Emmy Award® winner, "How I Met Your Mother," is a comedy about Ted's (Josh Radnor) hilarious journey to meeting his future wife. It all started when Ted's best friend, Marshall (Jason Segel), dropped the bombshell that he was going to propose to his long-time girlfriend, and now wife, Lily (Alyson Hannigan), a kindergarten teacher. At that moment, Ted realized that he had better get a move on if he too hopes to find true love. Helping him in his quest is Barney (Neil Patrick Harris), a friend with endless, sometimes outrageous opinions, a penchant for suits and a foolproof way to meet women. When Ted met Robin (Cobie Smulders), it was love at first sight, but when things didn't work out, Ted realized destiny must have something else in store. The series is narrated though flashbacks from the future.

Try Not To Scream As Two Thrilling All-New Goosebumps® Adventures

Attack of the Mutant & Ghost Beach

Arrive On DVD September 13

Los Angeles, CA (August 2, 2011) – Get goose bumps and keep the light on to ward off the ghosts, goblins, mutants and madness as Goosebumps®: Attack of the Mutant and Goosebumps®: Ghost Beach scare their way onto DVD September 13, 2011 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.

With over 300 million books sold, R.L. Stine’s wildly successful children’s stories (www.scholastic.com/goosebumps ) come to life with two all-new terrifying tales. First, Attack of the Mutant includes “Attack of the Mutant Parts 1 & 2” and follows Skipper Matthews and his awesome comic book collection. Skipper’s favorite is The Masked Mutant, the story of an evil, power-mad super villain who is out to gain control of the universe. One day, while lost in a strange part of town, Skipper discovers a building that mysteriously resembles the Mutant’s secret headquarters... a building that magically disappears. Has Skipper read one too many comic books? Or does The Masked Mutant really exist? The DVD also features “Phantom of the Auditorium™,” a frightening story about a young actress who is thrilled after winning the lead in the school play... until the nightmares begin as there is talk of a real phantom who has haunted the auditorium for years.

Next, Ghost Beach includes “The Barking Ghost” and follows Cooper Holmes, a young man who is scared of just about everything. His father says he’s the only kid to scare himself on Halloween! But as he moves into a new house, this time Cooper is not just scared of his own shadow. In “Be Careful What You Wish For,” class klutz Samantha Byrd is the laughingstock of the girls’ basketball team. But now, Samantha has found someone who will grant her three wishes. Too bad she wasn’t more careful as now Sam’s wishes are turning her life into a living nightmare! Lastly, “Ghost Beach” focuses on Jerry, who is thrilled by the prospect of exploring the dark, eerie old cave he discovered down by the beach. When he hears the story of a 300-year-old ghost living inside, Jerry must decide if he will believe the legend or dismiss it as a silly made-up tale.

FOX AND THE HOUND 30TH ANNIVERSARY 2-MOVIE COLLECTION - In the tradition of heart-warming films, such as Bambi and Dumbo, comes Disney’s classic tales that taught us the power of friendship in The Fox and the Hound and The Fox and the Hound 2, in a special 30th Anniversary 2-Movie Collection. For the first time ever in high-definition, consumers can now experience the brilliant, humor-filled adventures of best friends Copper and Tod in an all-new digitally restored version of the original 1981 film, arriving to stores on August 9, 2011.

Featuring an all-star cast of voice talents, toe-tapping music and fantastic bonus features, consumers can take home two of Disney’s beloved "tails." The Fox and the Hound and The Fox and the Hound 2, 2-Movie Collection features both movies in a single 3-Disc Blu-ray Combo Pack. This release provides families with the value, versatility and opportunity to enjoy their favorite movies how they want, when they want and on the entertainment platform of choice – whether it’s in the home, on a portable device and/or in the car.

The Fox and The Hound, Disney’s 24th animated feature released in 1981, marked a "changing of the guard" from the legendary "nine old men," including Wolfgang Reitherman, Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston, who had joined the studio its very early days and worked closely with Walt Disney to develop Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, the very first animated feature, then went on to create timeless classics such as Cinderella, Bambi and Lady and the Tramp. These iconic figures passed the torch to a new generation of animators including Ron Clements (Animated Screenplay/Story Artist on The Princess and the Frog, Aladdin, The Little Mermaid) Glen Keane (Animation Supervisor/Directing Animator on Tangled, Beauty and the Beast, Little Mermaid) and John Musker (Animation Supervisor/Directing Animator on Princess and the Frog, Aladdin, The Little Mermaid), who would lead Disney animation’s renaissance in the 1980’s with new landmark animated films such as The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast.

The voice talent on The Fox and the Hound was also a mix of old and new Hollywood with veterans such as Mickey Rooney (National Velvet, The Black Stallion), Pearl Bailey (Porgy and Bess) and Pat Buttram (TV’s "Green Acres") joining up-and-coming stars Kurt Russell (Escape From New York, Miracle) and Corey Feldman (Stand By Me, The Lost Boys).

In 2006, Copper, Tod and their friends were brought back for The Fox and the Hound 2, featuring the vocal talents of Patrick Swayze (Ghost, Dirty Dancing), Reba McEntire (TV’s "Reba"), Lucas Grabeel (Disney Channel’s "High School Musical" franchise) and Trisha Yearwood (country music singer).

The Fox and the Hound 30th Anniversary Synopsis
When Tod, an orphaned fox cub meets Copper, a coonhound puppy, they make a pledge to be lifelong friends, not realizing that Copper is being groomed to hunt wild animals, including foxes. Copper spends the winter with his owner, Slade, and an older dog, Chief, tracking animals at a remote cabin. When they return, a lonely Tod eagerly greets his old playmate but is stunned when a reluctant Copper joins Slade and Chief to chase Tod through the forest. During the pursuit, Tod escapes but Chief is seriously injured. Seeking revenge, Copper hunts down Tod only to find himself confronting an even bigger enemy, which he and Tod must face together.

The Fox and the Hound 2 Synopsis
In The Fox and the Hound 2, music takes centerstage as Tod contemplates joining up with "The Singin’ Strays," a group of harmonizing dogs appearing at the local county fair but dreaming of hitting the big time at the Grand Ole Opry. While Tod does his best to fit in with his new friends, Copper finds himself relegated to "roadie," a position he begins to resent. With the encouragement of Dixie, the "diva" of "The Singin' Strays," Copper manages to sabotage an important audition. The next day, their differences forgotten, Copper and Tod team up and, using Copper’s superior tracking skills, they locate the Grand Ole Opry talent scout who signs "The Singin’ Strays" (minus Tod, who chooses his friendship with Copper over fame) on the spot.
