    8 months after the film's theatrical run, the film was released on videocassette in 1987 by Continental Video in the U.S. and in Canada by Cineplex Odeon. The film was first released on DVD through Mill Creek's Chilling Classics 50 Movie Pack. That box was later discontinued when it was revealed that Deadtime Stories was not in the public domain. In 2007, the film was released on a bargain DVD by Image Entertainment under license from Cinevision International. The DVD runs 12 minutes shorter than the home video release since it stops and returns to the DVD menu in the middle of the end credits. Scream Factory released the film on Blu-ray for the first time on February 28, 2017.
