First posted May 28, 2004 / Last Updated November 27, 2004

Last December, we broke the news on season sets of "Boy Meets World", "Popular", and "Felicity" coming to DVD in 2004. Now, we've just gotten news from our same most reliable studio source that Disney plans to release more television series on DVD this November.

"Home Improvement" was a hit with viewers from its first season, when it became the most-watched of all new series. This half-hour sitcom's debut season is scheduled to come to DVD on November 23. Originally aired between September 1991 and May 1992, these 24 episodes introduced audiences to the Taylor family, a middle-class, middle-American family.

Tim Taylor, the family's patriarch, has nominal fame as the host of "Tool Time," a local cable program where he can be seen working on home repair projects that frequently result in disaster. When he goes home, Tim is father to three boys: Brad (Zachery Ty Bryan), Randy (Jonathan Taylor Thomas), and Mark (Taran Noah Smith). At the center of the show is Tim's marriage to Jill (Patricia Richardson). Tim's efforts to understand and please Jill often lead to confusion. Helping him unravel life's riddles are his wise but mysterious neighbor Wilson (Earl Hindman) and Al Borland, his flannel-wearing "Tool Time" assistant.

Tim Allen is the star of the show, which is adapted from his stand-up comedy. "Home Improvement" became an unprecedented success for Touchstone Television and launched film careers for Tim Allen and Jonathan Taylor Thomas. Viewers took to "Home Improvement" as the family sitcom for the 1990s, making it a ratings phenomenon and the top draw of the ABC network during its 8-season run.

Season One of "Home Improvement" contained a number of memorable episodes, as Tim takes on a troublesome chain letter, the neighborhood Christmas lighting contest, a snake, and a trivia challenge with Bob Vila. The Taylors' adventures continue with a night at the bowling alley, a state-of-the-art stereo system, and an unforgettable Valentine's Day camping trip.

The 3-disc set (SRP $49.99) will include audio commentaries from the show's creator and "Loose Screws", a collection of the show's most hilarious moments.

Also making its DVD debut on November 23 is "The Golden Girls", a popular comedy about four older women living together in Miami. This half-hour sitcom connected with many viewers in its seven-season run. The First Season (1985-86) contained 24 episodes.

Dorothy (Bea Arthur) looks for love, and finds her mother Sophia (Estelle Getty) moving in with her. Sharing the house are the promiscuous Blanche (Rue McClanahan) and the principled Rose (Betty White). In the first season, the ladies get a wide array of visitors, including Blanche's sister, niece, and grandson, plus Dorothy's loathed ex-husband. The set will include some of the show's most memorable episodes such Sophia's heart attack, Rose's lifeless bedfellow, and the girls' full-on security response to a break-in.

The 3-disc "Golden Girls" Season One set will include a Fashion Commentary featurette, in which Joan and Melissa Rivers critique the "crazy, kitchsy" wardrobes featured on the show.
