Breaking the tradition of including the main eight character brands of the DVD series, it will instead feature three of Hit's shows each in two episodes.
Bob the Builder, Thomas & Friends and Fireman Sam are the first for a collection of outings which leads into more similar releases as the home video title has revised it's name to Awesome Adventures Vol. One: Rescue Friends.
More volumes are expected for 2012 whilst the animation versions of the above three brands are the centre of attention in the episodes accompanied.
Thomas & Friends in
Spencer the Grand and Toby's New Whistle
Fireman Sam in
Off Duty Sam and Fireman James
Bob the Builder in
Scratch Goes Solo and Whizzy Dizzy
The DVD's description reads; Calling all heroes! Spencer shows his mettle when he steams through thick fog to rescue Percy while Toby’s new whistle rings friends and animals to safety!
Bob the Builder’s Machine Team helps Scratch out of a sticky situation, as Dizzy surprises her friends – and herself – when she turns a big mistake into a great success.
Fireman Sam proves that a hero’s work is never done and James learns that some rescues are best left to the professionals. Everyone is racing to the rescue in this exciting collection from your favorite preschool friends!
Lionsgate Publicity have also promoted the release by adding a high-res version of the front cover alongside Hit's press release on their website.
Awesome Adventures Vol. One: Rescue Friends from Hit Favorites hits US DVD shelves on March 13th 2011 and will also appear on Digital Download and On Demand.
