Home Video
information:
Japan: The early part of this series is available on VHS or a combination of LD and DVD.
Germany: DVD (partial)
United States: DVD (FUNimation, partial)
Note(s): Only 49 episodes of the series was shown on the Cartoon Network's broadcast of Case Closed. Additional episodes have been released on home video.

The episode numbers of Case Closed do not correspond to those of the original Japanese broadcast because episodes that were broadcast as long specials in Japan have been divided into half-hour episodes for the United States version.

To see what other animated programs were out at the same time as Meitantei Conan go to the Chronology of Animation.

Note on finding copies of programs:
Unfortunately I lack the time or resources to help people find copies of anime television programs. I have put together a web List of Online Video and Book Stores that will be useful to find copies in the United States, some other countries, and one Japanese store. There are other similar stores on the Internet around the world that might be able to supply the DVDs, LDs, VCDs, or video tapes that are desired. Check my Japanese Animation Information page for links to Internet resources that may have further information. I am not involved in trading materials from my own collection. I am still waiting to see most of the programs in this List of Anime Television Series and would be happy to find sources for many of them.

Because of these circumstances I will not respond to requests for help to find these types of materials.
