The Lost DVD Set?

||Around August 2001, Pioneer
announced that the Orange Island episodes were finally coming to DVD.
Not just any DVD, but a cool, four-disc set that contained all 36 episodes,
from Pallet Party Panic to The Rivalry Revival. This was welcome news for
many fans, as the Orange League series, though short, was loved by Poke-enthusiasts,
as it was the only series not based on the video games, new, popular characters
were introduced, episodes were more original, and Team Rocket got a bigger
share of the spotlight. The Orange Island series was skipped over during
the normal run of videos, as Pioneer skipped straight from the Indigo series
to the Johto series, most likely to take advantage of the newly released
Gold and Silver games.
The set was available for
pre-order on many online sites, such as Amazon.com, with a set release
date in late November 2001. November came... and went with no DVD set in
sight. Now with a release date of "To Be Announced", the DVD set is in
danger of never being released.
But there is something you
can do! Go to Pioneer's website
and send them an e-mail,
or better yet, send them a handwritten
letter (which are always more effective than e-mails). Or, if you're
really lazy, you can sign this on-line
petition. Ask them (politely) to release the Orange Island DVD set,
and remind them that thousands and thousands of Pokemon fans are waiting
to buy it!
If we can speak up, there's
a good chance that soon, we will have our mitts on the Orange Island Adventures
