H’w’d to offer free kidvids

'Willy,' 'Dalmatians,' 'Anastasia' among titles offered

Parents may soon be able to rent “Free Willy” for free at Hollywood Video stores.

The nation’s second largest retailer has begun to make select children’s titles, including high-profile Disney movies like “101 Dalmatians” and “Mary Poppins,” available as free rentals to customers.

“It’s summer, and it’s something we think we can make available for parents,” a Hollywood spokesman said. “We’re trying to build a really diversified library.”

Customers will be allowed one free, five-day rental per visit. Among the movies offered are Disney’s “Pinocchio,” “Air Bud” and “James and the Giant Peach”; Universal’s “The Land Before Time”; and Fox’s “Anastasia.” The stores will also offer shortform Nickelodeon, Discovery Channel and National Geographic videos such as segments of “Goosebumps,” “Magic School Bus,” “Rugrats,” “Blue’s Clues” and “Teletubbies.”

Additional titles will be stickered to indicate their inclusion in the ongoing free rental program.
