What Watership Down Merchandise do you have?
« on: April 11, 2011, 11:08:29 PM »
I've always been curious what Watership Down merchandise members have. All I have is Watership Down, Tales from Watership Down and the movie. Not sure if this counts, but I have Winter on Watership Down and the final two epsiodes on my computer.

Not sure if this is a topic that should be pinned, but I'll keep it pinned for now. I doubt this is a topic anyone would want to get lost. :wacko

This is what I own:



"My heart has joined the thousand, for my friend stopped running today." - Hazel

Pessimist sees a dark tunnel. Optimist sees a light in the tunnel. Realist sees the light of coming train. And the train driver sees three idiots standing on the track.

Lucky...I wish I could find the series on video. I've only had luck with Winter on WSD, and that's Amazon, don't have an account; so I had to download it (along with Beginning of the End and The Magic) off of youtube.

For some reason they won't upload to my website (non-WSD) or my photobucket account when I select them. Nothing happens when I click them.

I found this box on amazon.uk  Maybe they still have some to sell.

I've been eyeing the TV series boxset for some time now.  There are places on the web from Australia advertising the TV series boxset as a "region free" coding.  I"m not sure whether to believe that or not, but it would be great if it was true.  What gives me a pause is the price: $49.99 before shipping, which adds about another $25.00 to the price tag.

If I liked all three seasons equally, I would buy it and not think twice.  Season 2 has a lot of clunkers in my opinion, and it bothers me to pay a large price for something where there's a good portion of the series I really don't enjoy.

My boxset wasn't "region free", but it wasn't the problem that couldn't be solved by right programs. ;)

I decided to make a photo of front cover of every disc in my TV-series boxset. I did it with a cellphone, so the quality may not be the best, but well... here it is:

Vol. 14 is a travesty...Christmas on Watership Down :x :x   The theme of the episodes (better titled "Winter on Watership Down") is decent when analyzed, but that title just is a turn off.  I think the rabbits have scarves on in the US release. :blink



Sick.  :crazy   :crazy  :crazy  :crazy

The Watership rabbits would've freaked out at such a thought.  :bolt

No no, not in the show do they wear the scarves.  The cover implies they did.

Well... I wouldn't suspect producers of the series of making a special version of this episode with rabbits wearing scarves. That would be additional and unnecessary work. On the other hand, making different cover is much easier. ;)

Yeah but why bother putting scarves on the rabbits at all?  Hazel even looks like he has a santa cap on.
