Rapper Eminem's Internet cartoon, "Slim Shady World," will no longer be bound to a computer monitor. On Nov. 6, Ground World Entertainment and Shady World Productions will release a DVD/VHS compendium of the series, a sort of "South Park" meets "The Marshall Mathers LP." The shows feature the voice work of Eminem and some of his peers and cohorts. Xzibit shows up in the latest episodes, which parody the HBO series "OZ."

The DVD will feature a "making of" documentary, a new interview with Eminem, a "lost" episode, and seven minutes of new footage. Both edited and uncensored versions will be available, with the uncensored copies including three more minutes of footage. All told, the videos collect more than 70 minutes of the animated series.

"Slim Shady World" is created with flash animation by Mark Brooks and Peter Gilstrap, the duo behind the Web cartoon "Lil' Pimp," which will be released as a film next year by Columbia/Revolution. The Dust Brothers have signed on to provide the score.

As previously reported, Eminem will make his only scheduled domestic performance this September at the Reading Festival USA. In addition, Xzibit, Linkin Park, Guided by Voices, and Adema, among others, have signed on to perform. The Detroit rapper has not been performing live with his outfit D12, which was ousted from the Warped Tour earlier this month.
