Disc News: Mary Tyler Moore Pops Up on Groundhog Day

Forget February 2 being Groundhog Day in 2010. It’ll be the day “Chuckles the Clown Bites the Dust” reaches DVD. This episode on Mary Tyler Moore Show: The Complete Sixth Season is considered the peak of ’70s comedy. How did the poor TV station clown meet his death? It’s a glorious end to his greasepaint existence. Here’s the press release from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment:


LOS ANGELES, CA – (November 23, 2009) – The groundbreaking and award-winning comedy series that distinguished itself as a creative pioneer during its run and became one of the most beloved and critically acclaimed shows in television history, The Mary Tyler Moore Show Season Six debuts on DVD February 2 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.

Join all of your favorites in the WJM-TV newsroom for the hilarious, heartfelt Season Six of the comedy classic that turned the world on with a smile! This time, love is all around, and while the ever-independent Mary falls head over heels and rekindles an old flame, the levelheaded Murray pines away for a secret love of his own. And that’s just the beginning—from Lou’s outrageously unlikely date with Sue Ann to Ted and Georgette’s uproarious wedding, it’s time to share the love, the lunacy, and the laughter with all of the gang in this timeless, Emmy Award-winning classic.

Created by James L. Brooks (As Good As It Gets) and starring Mary Tyler Moore (The Dick Van Dyke Show), Gavin MacLeod (The Love Boat), Edward Asner (Up), Ted Knight (Too Close for Comfort), Betty White (Golden Girls), along many hilarious guest stars, The Mary Tyler Moore Show: Season Six DVD set will be available for the suggested retail price of $29.98 U.S. / $37.98 Canada. Prebook is January 6.
