TV Shows STILL Not on DVD


Back in 2007, I made a list of TV shows I would like to see on DVD. Now it's 2010, let's see the progress. Below is the original list with an asterisk (*) by those shows that have made it to DVD:

In no particular order:

Don Adams' Screen Test
Animals Animals Animals
Make a Wish
Norm
The Alvin Show*(one episode only)
Fernwood 2Night/America 2Night
The Great American Dream Machine
When Things Were Rotten
The Bob Newhart Show (1961 version)
Vision On
The Brady Brides
The Bradys
The Marty Feldman Comedy Machine
The Goodies* (import only)
CPO Sharkey
Silver Spoons* (1st season only)
A Few Minutes With Stan Hooper
Curiosity Shop
Delta House
The Paul Hogan Show
The Beagles
Fridays
Herman's Head
International Festival of Animation
It's About Time
Michael Nesmith in Television Parts
Mighty Mouse: The New Adventures*
The New Show
Operation Petticoat

The Great American Dream Machine
The Mouse Factory
Make a Wish
Marshal Efron's Illustrated, Simplified and Painless Sunday School
Marlo and the Magic Movie Machine

And...
Mother's Little Network
Sgt. Swell

As you can see, not much progress on these obscure shows. I would like to add the Adam West Batman series among other things, but that's a given. The above shows are listed due to their relative obscurity.

Wow. They finally reissued Quark. Gonna have to get that. (Not willing to crack my DVD player for another year (after warranty runs out), but am looking forward to that goody. Though the one episode on YouTube I saw didn't bode well for the show being as good as I remember it to have been when I was 11.

Yeah, "Quark" wasn't the greatest, but I have a fondness for it...

A few years ago, I got...ahem...a wretched quality "grey market" collection of WHEN THINGS WERE ROTTEN and it just makes me long for a real version...with commentaries from Mel Brooks and Dick Gautier!

New Adventures of Mighty Mouse is available now!: http://www.amazon.com/Mighty-Mouse-New-Adventures-Complete/dp/B002RS7ND0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1275500325&sr=8-1

I want a DVD of "Wizards and Warriors" the hilarious show that probably influenced Xena and Hercules.
