    What would be your top 5 fantasy picks?

    Just a fun little game. Rules are simple. No rules. Pure fantasy. Take your most ridiculously unavailable wants and create a fantasy DVD shopping spree.

    1) Captain Kangaroo - The Complete series

    2) A full days programming from the day I was born, complete with commercials and network and local news.

    3) One day of complete programming on MTV from 1983.

    4) Original, uncut Kennedy assassination news footage from 11/22/63.

    5) Hollywood Squares - The Complete Series (Daytime and Nightime)

    Your turn.....

    Only two, and I don't see them happening: Slattery's People and the American history series The Great Adventure.

    But like the song says, I can dream, can't I?

    Every single episode of General Hospital from its 4/1/63 debut onwards! Since I started watching in mid- 1979, there's 16 years to catch up with. Roughly the first seven years exist on kinescope at the UCLA TV Archive. The problem is 1971-78: ABC stopped kinescopes then and most of the tapes were wiped. ABC only began to archive its tapes in 1978. Fortunately on YouTube I have seen several hours worth of excerpts from home-taped shows from 1976-78 as well as several 1975 B/W kinescopes, so some of gap has been filled. But I always hold out hope for a discovery of lost color ABC tapes in some vault or warehouse.

    A lot of what was once 'holy grail' / 'dont expect to ever see this come out' is coming out - BATMAN, MAVERICK, YOUNG MAVERICK, BRET MAVERICK - or has come out - DARK SHADOWS -, I don't really know what else I would like.

    Maybe SANFORD (revival of SANFORD AND SON).

    But right now, the studios are making me very, very happy.

    Uncut JFK coverage from 11/22 circulates widely among collectors. Just about all the CBS and ABC/WFAA coverage plus the first hours of NBC as well.My dream picks1-At least 50 to 100 New York Yankees baseball telecasts from the dynasty period of 1976-81, *especially* the WPIX telecasts of the ALCS for 76-77-78-80-81 as called by Yankee announcers Phil Rizzuto, Frank Messer and Bill White. To complete the baseball picture, I'd want the lost telecast of the Bobby Thomson game from 1951 and color tape versions of all World Series games from 1958-1964 plus the 1962 NL playoffs.2-A hundred or so random Tonight Show broadcasts from the lost era of the early years, 1962-1970.3-More lost game shows or where full run doesn't exist, specifically "Split Second" (1972-75), the New York era of $10,000 and $20,000 Pyramid (have 100 plus shows of this but mostly from 78-80, little from first four to five years), the original 1960s "Match Game" and the ABC years of "Password".4-The complete run of "Sheena, Queen Of The Jungle" starring Irish McCalla, including the never seen color version of the pilot.5-All episodes of the Jack Benny Show, 1950-65 and all of them with integrated commercials.

    Although Captain Kangaroo the Complete Series is a complete fantasy, I would really love to have a substantial collection of episodes from someone like Mill Creek. Remarkably, there are only two or three cuts on Youtube the last time I checked. I got the Captain Kangaroo cd (a collection of his Golden Records recordings), and it was a big hit with my kids.

    Hee Haw, every single episode from 1969-93 including the "Hee Haw Silver" episodes which were re-runs with an introduction by Roy Clark and a new ending with Cathy Baker plugging the next week's show. Also the half-season Hee Haw Show where they attempted to move away from a country format. Might as well throw in Hee Haw Honeys as well!

    The entire run of all the incarnations of Memphis Wrestling from the 1950's on up. It started on WMC and moved to WHBQ at some point. In 1977, Jerry Lawler broke with Gulas Promotions and started his own promotion with Jerry Jarrett which then moved back to WMC. For a short while the Lawler/Jarrett promotion competed with the Gulas promotion before Gulas totally shut down. During its time on WMC it was always Championship Wrestling but there were various promotions they aligned with. In the late 90's it became Power Pro Wrestling and Lawler split to form Memphis Championship Wrestling but wound up going back to Power Pro and essentially merged the two promotions.

    I have to say with all the recent announcements for tv on dvd releases, it is harder for me to think of titles that I want as most of my "Holy Grails" have either been released or being prepped for release.
    But, I can always come up with 10 more :) :

    10. Ripley's Believe It Or Not with Jack Palance-Complete series on dvd

    9 You Can't Do That On Television complete series

    8 Iron Chef(original Japanese series) complete

    7 It's a Living complete series

    6. St. Elsewhere complete

    5 the remaining Mr. Belvedere seasons

    4 That's Incredible complete series

    3 Siskel and Ebert At The Movies -complete season by season. Would be a highlight in my collection

    2 Horror Host local tv programming shows complete seasons like Son Of Svengoolie, Count Scary Dr. Paul Bearer, Macabra.....any actually just so they are complete.

    Most of my holy grails are things I'll probably never see released in my life, although they were quite wonderful and popular in their time. I still hope and pray for (sorry there are more than five):
    ADVENTURES IN PARADISE
    BACHELOR FATHER
    77 SUNSET STRIP
    PEOPLE'S CHOICE
    SURFSIDE 6
    HAWAIIAN EYE
    THE THIRD MAN (Complete)
    RUN FOR YOUR LIFE
    IT'S ABOUT TIME (Okay, guilty pleasure here)
    MR. ADAM AND EVE (If film masters do ever turn up)
    Still, I never dreamed I'd have all of DOBIE GILLIS or SEA HUNT, so I won't give up the ghost for any on my list yet.
