LAS VEGAS – 4Kids Entertainment, Inc. (NYSE: KDE) has set VSDA 2005 to unveil “DVDouble Shot,” an exciting new line of impulse-driven, value-priced DVDs, it was announced by Joe Lyons, Director of Home Entertainment.

Culled from such hit 4Kids Entertainment television series as Yu-Gi-Oh!, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Winx Club, Sonic X, Cabbage Patch Kids and Kirby: Right Back at Ya!, each DVD will feature two of the most memorable episodes, hand-picked by the series’ original producers and writers, with input from the show’s most devoted fans.

“As DVD players get smaller and more portable, ‘DVDouble Shots’ gives today’s on-the-go kids a great alternative for a quick fix of their favorite shows and offers parents a high quality, low-priced buying option for great grades, stocking stuffers, party favors, or just because,” said Lyons. “In addition, the slim packaging design and the multiple POP display options we are developing allows retailers to bring DVDs into the toy, card, electronics and cereal aisles for those last minute impulse purchases.”

Designed as an inexpensive new purchasing option with a high entertainment value, “DVDouble Shots” will be offered in slimray packaging with an enticing packaging design. Sixteen SKUs will be available this fall at mass and specialty retailers including grocery stores, drug stores, party stores and others. The suggested retail price is $3.99 to $4.99.

“DVDouble Shots” will be distributed in the U.S. by FUNimation Entertainment in most channels of distribution, with The Garr Group handling distribution at grocery and drug stores.
