Over the last couple of weeks Iâ€™ve made a list of my Dutch language Aladdin series collection I recorded over the years. Iâ€™ve 13 tapes with 1 to 5 episodes the oldest episodes are dating back to 1996. I know this because the channel most episodes where taped from changed their name that year. Minus the doubles Iâ€™ve exactly 50 episodes in my native tongue that I much more than the 30 or so I expected to have. Iâ€™ve to note that some episodes are missing parts at the beginning and end but not much ranging from a few seconds to about a minute. I needed that list in order to figure out how many DVDâ€™s I needed to fit them on in the uncompressed MPEG format a standard DVD is composed off.
Well I came out at 9 DVDâ€™s with 3 to 6 episodes each and am currently designing covers for them. They aren’t state of the art but I’m not a very good designer something I regret once in a while.
I’m doing this project because for one simple reason, no official series DVD is to be expected from Disney. When the Aladdin series finally gets a DVD release I know the Disney Company only will do a for region 1 release and only with the English soundtrack. Hopefully Aladdin returns on TV next year and I can add the missing episodes to my collection.
