Gotham Girls Animated Shorts Coming To DVD

Buried in Warner Home Video's press release announcing the first (and only) season of Birds Of Prey will finally be released on DVD was this:

In addition to the entire series, complete with 13 full episodes, Birds of Prey: The Complete Series includes never-before-seen special features such as:
  • Gotham Girls S1-3 – An animated series of shorts starring the Birds of Prey characters.

Well, obviously seasons 1-3 of Gotham Girls have been seen, but only on the internet (season three begins here). It's a part of the DC Animated Universe that fans have wanted for a long time, and even though it's not getting a DVD release proper, it will still be a welcome addition to every DCAU collection.

That just leaves The Zeta Project and Static Shock missing from DVD shelves everywhere. What gives? In an e-mail marketing campaign on April 5, 2007, Warner Bros. conducted a survey of animation fans to gauge interest in several of their properties. Included on that list was The Zeta Project, so they are perfectly aware that fans are out there and willing to part with their money. And Static Shock? The show's ratings and popularity say all that needs to be said.

So how 'bout it, Warner Bros.? When can we get full sets of Zeta and Static to complete the DCAU?
