The film was first released on VHS on December 21, 1999, by Warner Home Video under the Warner Bros. Family Entertainment label. It contained 10 original songs and features a majority of the voice cast reprising their respective roles from the TV show.
It was originally intended as the first of a series of movies based on the TV show. Sales were not as good as Warner Bros. hoped and the other planned installments were scrapped. With the time, the movie became a cult among fans of the TV series.
