Three's Company 40th Anniversary (Since It Ended) DVD Collection; Shout! TV Holiday Episodes

Three's Company - The Official 40th Anniversary Collection

Three's Company - The Official 40th Anniversary Collection is coming December 22 on DVD from Visual Entertainment Inc.! The series is actually approaching 47 years old now, but it will have ended 40 years ago this spring. All 8 seasons of 172 episodes, plus for the first time on DVD the two-short lived spin-off series The Ropers and Three's a Crowd and over 9 hours of other special bonus features! Three's Company was a groundbreaking comedy series that tripped through a world of slapstick pratfalls and some of the most scandalously titillating comedy America had ever seen. Racy and daring for its time, this breakthrough farce ran for eight seasons on ABC. Forty years after it came to an end, it remains one of the best-loved television series of all time. This complete series set is a celebration of the exploits of Jack, Janet, Chrissy, Larry, Terri, The Ropers, and Mr. Furley and offers fans a chance to relive every episode and continue to laugh for years to come. Starring John Ritter, Joyce DeWitt, Suzanne Somers, Richard Kline, Norman Fell, Audra Lindley, Don Knotts, Jenilee Harrison, and Priscilla Barnes. The bonus features for each season is below:
