A further boxset was announced during August 2011, featuring all 13 episodes of Series One for release on 24 October. Series Two was confirmed for release in October 2012.

This was followed later that same year by "Spooky Goings On 2", shortened simply to "Spooky Goings On" for the DVD cover. Like the previous release, you received a limited edition gift - a pumpkin frisbee.The most recent tour committed to DVD was "Indiana Chuckles and the Kingdom of the Mythical Sulk" in 2008. This didn't include any free gifts. Shortly afterwards, Liberation Entertainment went out of business and, as of yet, there have been no further releases of the stage shows to DVD.. "The Chuckle Brothers in Trouble" was released on a very rare limited run VHS in the 90's, and later on DVD in 2008.

ChuckleVision 'Unreleased' Annual (1990's) EditA very rare ChuckleVision annual was apparently released sometimes in the 1990's but it hasn't been seen in any charity shop or on eBay. After talking with Bernard Bale of Beeline Media Pubslishing, it was discovered that the annual was never released. But the company were considering releasing a new annual in 2012, because of the brothers ongoing popularity. However, the idea of the annual was discarded in favour of releasing the Chuckle Brothers' autobiography instead.
Chuckle Brothers Autobiography 'Fifty Years of To Me To You' (2014) Edit
Over the years, the Chuckle Brothers have mentioned an ongoing biography of theirs to be released. It has supposed to have been written by Stuart Clarkson, but never published and each year less hope has been given to its publication. But Beeline Media have been in talks with the Chuckle Brothers and have given a release date for the biography for November 2013 and is to be released by book publisher's Worlds Fair.
The book was released on 18th April 2014 under the title: 'The Chuckle Brothers: Fifty Years of To Me To You' and is a biography written partly by Paul himself and features lots of information on the brother's lives from their perspective.
