This is a list of DVDs of the Marx Brothers. The first DVDs were the five Paramount movies published in 1998 by Image Entertainment under license from Universal. It seems that in the eyes of Universal they did sell the DVDs too cheaply and the distribution rights were not renewed when they ran out.
For some time no title was in print until the release of Room Service in Spain and A Night In Casablanca in Spain and Australia. Then several movies were published in Brazil.
At the end of 2003 some of the Paramount movies were released in Europe and Australia and all five Paramount movies were available from Taiwan.
I am not sure whether any of the Brazilian and Taiwanese releases were licensed.
In May 2004 Warner Home Video released the MGM movies for Region 1, including A Night at the Opera, A Day at the Races, Room Service, At the Circus, Go West, The Big Store and A Night in Casablanca; see below for more details. This box also became also available in other countries sometimes without 'Room Service'.
Universal Studios released the first five movies in November 2004 in The Marx Brothers Silver Screen Collection (see below), which also includes a disc of bonus material.

Since mid 2005 all movies have been available in many countries, the last to be released being "Room Service" and "A Night in Casablanca".

Shout Factory /  / 2006 / The Dick Cavett Show - Comic Legends (2006)
"Groucho Marx's visits are alone worth the price of "Comic Legends." The four-disc set (12 full shows) kicks off in grand style with an hour of the drollest of the movie Marx Brothers, a cheeky raconteur, jabbering stream-of-consciousness about everything: his childhood on East 93rd Street, Hollywood legend Greta Garbo ("She had big feet, but she was a nice woman"), co-starring with a gorilla, going to see the hippie musical "Hair." Cavett's Manhattan theater was so cozy, they could put cameras behind the orchestra seats for a more intimate connection between guests and audience. That comes through the screen as Cavett lets Marx reminisce, sing, do whatever he wants. The host also puts his past-era guest succinctly in perspective for the current day by simply noting "he sort of invented irreverence on screen." Groucho returns on the third disc in a later show, bizarrely booked alongside Truman Capote and animal expert Jim Fowler." (from newsday.com)
