(February 12, 2001 – Burbank, CA) – On March 27, rock back in time as Josie and the Pussycats shake things up in their video debuts “The Melody Memory Mix-Up” and “Chile Today, Hot Tamale!,” both priced at $14.95 SRP. These exclusive-to-video releases from Warner Home Video (WHV) are jam-packed with four rockin’ episodes, providing over two hours of crime-busting action and groovin’ tunes. The original Josie and the Pussycats cartoon series premiered after its debut as a popular comic book from the widely known “Archie” comic book series (over 60 “Josie and the Pussycats” issues have been released). Cartoon Network re-aired the original series from 1998-1999 and episodes are now currently airing in over two million homes on Cartoon Network’s new cable network Boomerangtv. The fun can also continue at home with the Kid Rhino release of an all-new “Josie and the Pussycats” CD featuring classic songs from the original series in Summer 2001. With operations in 78 international territories -- more than the video division of any other studio -- Warner Home Video commands the largest distribution infrastructure in the global video marketplace. WHV's film library is the largest of any studio, offering top quality new and vintage titles from the repertoires of Warner Bros., Turner Home Entertainment, Castle Rock Entertainment, HBO Home Video and New Line Home Video.
