Comparison of DVD Releases

In 2003 Network Video began releasing Goodies DVDs in the UK; each collection was subsequently licensed for release in Australia. However, variations between the two versions crept in starting with the second release. Assorted box sets, Australian-only single DVD releases, and reissues/repacked versions add to the potential confusion.

The Videotapes & DVDs page of this site provides detailed information about each release and attempts to explain the differences between related titles.  To supplement that information, I've created the following "quick reference" charts. Please note that these charts compare content only. Ignored are differences in DVD titles, release numbers, and artwork/packaging. Most of these details, as well as Region Codes, are available on the Videotapes & DVDs page.

The following charts are provided:
