Swiss Family Robinson DVD coverHere are the new TV DVDs, in stores tomorrow.

I've been trying to figure out which Swiss Family Robinson is being released this week. It's not the 1960 movie with James MacArthur, and it's not the 1975 series that starred Martin Milner, Helen Hunt, Willie Aames, and Cameron Mitchell. It's at 1976 series from Canada. Not sure if I've ever seen that.

Another blast from the TV past: Parker Lewis Can't Lose!

  • Eastbound & Down - Season 1
  • Entourage - Season 5
  • Eureka - Season 3

Family Guy gets shipwrecked in Toronto

Brian Fround of Swiss Family Guy RobinsonIf you happen to be in the Greater Toronto Area between now and July 15th you may want to stop by for a little taste of the Toronto Theatre Fringe Festival where, if you are fan of Family Guy, you'll definitely be in for a treat. That's because Peter, Lois and the rest of the family are appearing in a little play named Swiss Family Guy Robinson.

Well, they're not really appearing. I mean, that would be weird if they actually came out of your television screen to perform at the Royal St. George Theatre in Toronto. What I really meant is that they'll seem like they're right on the stage in this one man show performed by actor Brian Froud. In the play, which has been receiving rave reviews by the Toronto press, Froud spins the Griffins and their neighbors into the classic Swiss Family Robinson tale. Oh, I forgot to mention that he does spot-on voices of the entire Family Guy cast. All except Meg that is because, according to Froud, she's hard to do.

More information on Brian, as well as a sound clip of Swiss Family Guy Robinson, can be found at his website.
