Shout! Factory is an entertainment company founded in 2003 that was started by Richard Foos (co-founder of Rhino Records), Bob Emmer (former Warner Music Group and Rhino executive) and Garson Foos (former Rhino executive) initially as a specialty music label. It focuses on enriched music catalog reissues, home video/DVD projects, and television properties.
Prior to 2011, most of the Nickelodeon shows released by Shout! Factory (with the exception of Hey Dude) had previously been made available through manufacture-on-demand DVD sets, which were sold exclusively on Amazon.com (and were promptly discontinued when Shout! Factory got the license). Shout! Factory's DVD sets of Hey Arnold!, CatDog, The Wild Thornberrys, and Danny Phantom are noticeably identical to the Amazon.com DVDs, even using the same cover artwork. However, in the case of the Rocko's Modern Life and Angry Beavers DVDs, each set contains all the episodes from each season, as opposed to the "Best of" DVDs that were sold on Amazon.com. Rocko creator Joe Murray also drew new cover art for the show's later season sets.
After 2012, several of Shout! Factory's subsequent Nickelodeon DVD sets were released as Shout! Select titles, which can only be purchased on Shout! Factory's website (though these releases could also be bought as part of their respective show's "Complete Series" set).
As of 2018, Shout! no longer has the video rights for Rocko's Modern Life and Hey Arnold!, which have reverted to Paramount Home Media Distribution (who released new "Complete Series" sets for both shows on November 20, 2018).
The following is a list of Nickelodeon DVD sets released by Shout! Factory, organized by date.
