SANTA MONICA, Calif. What do talking sheep, trains and dinosaurs have in common? They’re all stars of the hottest new DVD collections from Lionsgate and HIT Entertainment this fall. “Shaun the Sheep: Season One Gift Set” and “Thomas & Friends: Best Tales on the Tracks” will be available for purchase on Oct. 19, and “Barney & Friends Learning Pack” will be arriving in stores on Oct. 26.

All 40 season-one episodes of British stop-animation show “Shaun the Sheep” are included on the “Season One Gift Set.” Join Shaun and his quirky friends Bitzer, Shirley, Timmy and more in their escapades on the farm. Also included are seven bonus features, such as “Sing-Along With Shaun,” the “Whack-A-Pig” and “Sheep Shearing” games and a featurette on “The Mini-Making of Shaun.”

“Thomas & Friends: Best Tales on the Tracks” brings together on six discs the best tales of the talking blue tank engine Thomas and his gang of engine friends — James, Gordon, Percy and others — on the Island of Sodor.

Everyone’s favorite purple dinosaur will be featured on a set of six fun and educational DVDs in the “Barney & Friends Learning Pack.” Barney, Baby Bop and B.J. turn the playground into an exciting musical experience in this collection of episodes that explore colors, counting, nursery rhymes and the alphabet.
