Dougal And The Blue Cat Coming To Special Edition DVD – UPDATED

Posted by October 2, 2010 Comment

Here’s a genuine lost gem of animated filmmaking, finally being given a home video release of the calibre it deserves. I haven’t seen the film such my last VHS machine died, but before that, Dougal and the Blue Cat was a real favourite – particularly on the night before a general election. I’ll tell you more about it when the disc is with us, but for now, here’s what you can expect in the release:

Serge Danot’s original French language version

Eric Thompson’s incredible English language version

Interview with Eric’s family, Emma Thompson, Sophie Thompson and Phyllida Law

Interview with co-star Fenella Fielding

Interview with be-quiffed, famous fan Mark Kermode

Lobby card and stills gallery

Kermode has described his contribution as a commentary, not an interview, but I think he was wrong and the listing above is right.

UPDATE: Here’s the up-to-date special features listing, as sent to me by Second Sight today. You’ll notice, amongst other things, that Sophie Thompson is no longer listed as taking part; she was, sadly, not available.

This remastered special edition will be released by Second Sight on November 1st. It’s already available for pre-order and even if you’re not here in the UK, there’s nothing stopping you from importing.
