The animated blockbuster The Croods, from DreamWorks, was the top-selling disc of the week ending Oct. 6.

The comic tale of a Stone Age family, distributed by 20th Century Fox, debuted at No. 1 on Nielsen VideoScan’s First Alert sales chart, which tracks overall disc sales, DVD and Blu-ray Disc combined.

The Croods, the second-highest-grossing original DreamWorks Animation film ever, opened theatrically in March and went on to earn $187.2 million in U.S. theaters — and a whopping $585 million worldwide. It was hailed by critics as the most original and funniest animated film of the year and is said to be a front-runner for the Best Animated Oscar. A sequel and TV series are already in development.
