    Hell yeah I remember this show! I taped every ep from MTV when it was on. (They never broadcast the final ep in the US, but I eventually got a copy from MTV canada).

    Great show, chaacters and design. Really wish this was on dvd (along with Daria). C'mon MTV, release more of your toons to dvd.

    What do you mean eventually got a copy from MTV canada? did they sent it to you? If they did, is there a chance you can upload it somewhere?

    I downloaded it from someone who taped it from MTV Canada. Only thing bad about it is the rather large french subtitles on it. It's on an old hardrive somewhere.

    I was very impressed by this show, and it seems I wasn't alone, as Downtown was nominated for a Best Animated Series Emmy. I would absolutely love to get these shows on DVD. I have a VHS tape of the first twelve and I keep meaning to dump it to my hard drive and clean it up.

    I was hoping when MTV started rerunning old animated series on MTV2 that this would eventually show up, but no luck yet...

    The show was awesome - but like a lot of MTV's animated series, never sees the light of day on DVD.

    Undergrads, Beavis & Butthead, and the two Daria movies are the only ones I can think of that were blessed with the DVD treatment.

    Hopefully someone will be kind enough to upload it to Youtube.com or something.
