    "No one you see, is smarter than he! They call him Flipper..." The classic TV series Flipper, starring Brian Kelly (Around the World Under the Sea) as Porter Ricks, Chief Warden and Park Ranger at Coral Key Park and Marine Preserve, comes to DVD and Blu-ray in a beautiful new presentation that captures the pristine aquatic Florida backdrop in all its glory. Ricks, along with his two young sons Sandy (Luke Halpin, Island of the Lost) and Bud (Tommy Norden, Five Miles to Midnight) share weekly adventures aided by Flipper, their friend and pet, a highly intellectual and daring dolphin adept at protecting the preserve and sleuthing out unsavory characters.

    Throughout its three-season run (1964 through 1967), Flipper featured a galaxy of guest stars including Burt Reynolds (Shark), John Kerr (South Pacific), Jessica Walter (Play Misty for Me), Martin Sheen (Apocalypse Now), Barbara Feldon (TV's Get Smart), David Soul (TV's Starsky and Hutch), Bo Svenson (Heartbreak Ridge), Huntz Hall (The Bowery Boys), Daniel J. Travanti (TV's Hill Street Blues), Marshall Thompson (It! The Terror from Beyond Space), Julie Sommars (TV's Matlock), Pat Henning (On the Waterfront), Denise Nickerson (Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory), John Castle (Blow-Up), Michael Conrad (TV's Hill Street Blues), Aline Towne (The Invisible Monster), John Abbott (Gigi), Jon Cypher (TV's Major Dad), Karen Steele (Marty), Andy Devine (The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance), Wende Wagner (Rosemary's Baby), Jean-Pierre Aumont (Day for Night), and Gloria DeHaven (Summer Stock).
Almost a month ago we had the heads-up that Olive Films would be releasing Blu-ray Discs and re-releasing DVDs for Flipper - Season 1 and Flipper - Season 2 (the latter was only available as a manufacture on demand product, and never widely distributed). We told you to expect these on August 29th, and we didn't have additional info at the time, like pricing...nor package art.

Now Olive Films has distributed the package art shown below, for both Blu-ray and DVD versions of both seasons they are releasing. They've also informed that the Blu-ray versions will clock in at $39.95 SRP each, and the DVD sets will be priced at $34.95 SRP each. Neither title, in either format, is listed at so far. But they are up for pre-order at other sellers, such as Our thanks to longtime reader (and friend) Gordon Hartman for his help with this story! Here's that package art:
