Viewers can fill up with premium laughs at their convenience, with all 19 episodes of the series’ most-watched season yet available in a three-disc DVD package in stores across Canada. Each package is sealed in a limited edition, red collector’s case featuring a specially-commissioned mock comic book cover from Canadian Marvel and DC comic book artist Ron Boyd. In addition, the DVD contains a $15 coupon for a discount on a Corner Gas hockey jersey at the Corner Gas web store at www.cornergas.com.
The three-disc DVD package features all 19 original, half-hour episodes from Season Three, including the hit Christmas episode, “Merry Gasmas”, along with the W-FIVE documentary special “Beyond Corner Gas: Tales From Dog River”.
The DVD release comes four weeks before the publication of Penguin Canada’s new book Tales From Dog River: The Complete Corner Gas Guide. Penned by esteemed entertainment writer Michele Sponagle, the 200-page companion book hits bookstores on November 1.

Both DVD’s became instant hits, selling out in stores across Canada. In its third season, the multiple award-winning CTV series finished with its 50th consecutive million plus audience, highlighted by its first ever Christmas episode which drew 2.2 million viewers (2+, BBM).
