    A Limited Edition Release is corporate poison. Here's how I think this is true. First off.... no one can bracket the life of an entity. Let's say that they had released the first season of M*A*S*H with only 100,000 expected to sell. And let's say.. that the entire Limited amount sells completely within one week... what then?

    Then lets say the public finds out about it... and throws a fit because not enough customers were able to buy the desired product?

    See what I mean? I know there are different angles and different avenues to this topic. I'm sure there is.

    I hardly think that Salute Your Shorts or Hey Dude would sell nearly as well as M*A*S*H. They'd be lucky to sell 10,000 copies.

    Count me in for wanting Mysterious Cities of Gold on DVD in the worst way. I was badly addicted to this show when I was younger. Are You Afraid of the Dark? is also on my want list.

    Clarissa Explains It All.... Eureka's Castle (call me young at heart)... The Elephant Show.

    I can't believe I just said I'd buy those two... but come on.... it's a piece of our childhood....

    Adventures of Pete & Pete
    This would sell extremely well- especially if cameos were touted-- Stipe, Iggy Pop, Luscious Jackson, Hunter S. Thompson, Kate Pierson, Debbie Harry, Janeane Garofalo, LL Cool J, Steve Buscemi, etc.
    This show has a big online following- and bootleg dvds sell like hotcakes.
    I think it would be a good one to start with, as it has a rabid following.

    Sorry, I wasn't following this thread at all. I don't have any contacts at Nick right now, but the TV-DVD conference is coming up in just over a week, so who knows who I'll meet there. Maybe I'll just jump on a chair and start screaming "Nickelodeon person....come see meeeeeee!"

    Rugrats would make the most sense for a premiere release since that is the big Nick toon right now. You can actually do both it and All Growed Up right around the same time.

    For me, yeah, Cities of Gold, David the Gnome, Hey Dude, virtually anything that was on the network heading into the mid 90s would draw me like a magnet.

    No love for the Angry Beavers?

    I'd also like Doug,Rugrats,and Rocko's Modern Life in season set.

    I actually made ZIM and Doug DVDs for myself from Nick's digital cartoon station. I'd buy A LOT of Nick's old shows on DVD if I had the chance (providing they were released in season sets), and I'm pretty darn picky about my purchases.

    I would certainly pick up Hey Dude on DVD if it was released. I watched the show somewhat regularly in the early 90's and I'd love to see it again.

    The conference is next Tuesday, Oct 19th.

    Nick doesn't own all the stuff that aired on the network, but they probably own a lot of it.

    Yes, I love the Angry Beavers. Rugrats makes the most sense to me since it's also my favorite Nicktoon.

    Nickelodeon has already released Spongebob Squarepants on DVD in Season Sets. But then that's not necessarily "classic nick" is it? No.

    Let's see... my favorite nickelodeon shows are Ren & Stimpy.... wait a minute, all of us are talking about Nickelodeon releasing "classic nick" and suggesting that we all start with Rugrats... Ren & Stimpy is a nickelodeon show.... right? So, Nick has already started their "classic nick" collection with Ren & Stimpy.

    The thought of having unedited episodes of Rugrats? Get real.

    I'd definitly buy up ROCKO'S MODERN LIFE dvds. Delightfully wacky, surreal show, a good replacement for Ren and Stimpy (though they did overlap by about a year or so, I think).

    Would consider Pete and Pete.
