Bird Island is a 52-episode sci-fi animated series. The first volume was released on DVD in North America through Playhut Entertainment's "Chinamation" line in June 2004, in an attempt to cash in on the current anime craze.

Despite four episodes (possibly more) being dubbed, the lack of success of the Chinamation line has led to the original DVD becoming far out-of-print, and only the first episode of the English dub surviving on through YouTube.
