    As all of you who grew up in the 1960s and 70s probably know by now, most of the cartoons they show on TV these days just don't "Cut It" the way the old ones used to. Some Strides have been made, but Many More are "Out There" languishing in "Limbo". Lets have some input on what you'd like to see released. You can mention "Live-Action" shows as well as Animated. Here's a few I'd like to see.

    FROM HANNA BARBERA

    The Adventures of Gulliver

    The Adventures of Huck Finn

    FROM FILMATION

    Fantastic Four (The Original )

    Fantastic Voyage

    LIVE-ACTION

    Run Joe Run!

    Westwind

    What are your Choices!

    I want to see complete releases of the rest of the Krofft shows, including the ones featured on the Krofft Supershow:
    Dr. Shrinker
    Lost Saucer
    Far Out Space Nuts
    Wonder Bug
    Bigfoot and Wildboy
    Magic Mongo

    I also want to see Scooby's All Star Laff-a-Lympics and Spider-Man And His Amazing Friends (given the new movie coming in May somebody missed the boat on this).

    Fantastic Four ('60s version)
    Josie and the Pussycats
    Josie and the Pussycats in Outer Space
    The New Adventures of Gilligan
    Gilligan's Planet
    Fantastic Voyage
    Journey to the Center of the Earth
    Valley of the Dinosaurs
    The Brady Kids
    Jeannie (based on I Dream of...)
    The Real Ghostbusters (in season sets/complete volumes)

    Live Action:
    The Kids from C.A.P.E.R. (I still have their album!)
    Dr. Shrinker
    The Lost Saucer
    Big John/Little John

    besides the Krofft stuff, it'd be great to have Uncle Croc, The Beatle, Hot Dog with Woody Allen, anything with the '70s Harlem Globetrotters.

    Ah, the good old days of Saturday morning cartoons. Still remember the big previews they would give on Friday nights for those cartoons and how I would spend all Saturday morning long between 7 and 12 watching them. Long before cable. Sadly, those days are gone with Cartoon Network. Saturday mornings were special; now they're just another stretch of Newsweek programs, etc.

    Anyone remember "Shazzan!"? It was about a genie and 2 teen-agers.

    Herculoids

    Space Ghost (the original). I think that's unconfirmed for 07/17 at TSoD

    I think that's about all on my want list. I'm not too much of an animation fan. I already have one of my all-time favs, the original Jonny Quest, and the Flintstones, Jetsons, and all of the Looney Tunes Collections.

    Wow, there are two of us.... Who knew? [​IMG]

    I don't recall the show as being very *good*, but I liked the bubblegum music, and the campy sense of humor. 'Course, the way things have been going with music licensing lately, it'd probably be released with all the musical "romps" missing.... *sigh*

    From what I understand the rights for the show are in some sort of limbo. About 15 years or so ago, the show's main director and writer, tried to do something with the series and there were some rights problems with it and it never got off the ground. There are a couple of clips on Youtube, but I would love to see the show get a full release.

    Thanks to BCI, Rhino, and Warner, a lot of my favorites have been released or are at least scheduled to be released. Besides some of the shows already mentioned (Hot Dog, Big John, Little John, etc...), I would love to see:

    Monster Squad
    Red Hand Gang
    Muggsy
    Hot Hero Sandwich
    Thunder
    Search & Rescue
    Bailey's Comets
    Tarzan
    the various Super 7 segments
    Krofft Superstar Hour (with the Bay City Rollers)

    Herculoids was the first one to pop into my mind. I cannot remember if that series was tagged with another HB property (such as Space Ghost/Dino Boy), and I wouldn't mind seeing Frankenstein Jr/Impossibles on dvd. And please, WB, get that Quickdraw McGraw set out there ASAP.

    I'd like to see both Super Powers series from the 1980s, as well. Oh, and Thundarr! Where are you Thundarr?!?

    And there was an ABC series from the late 1970s or early 1980s called "Puppy's Great Adventures," I think, that I remember really enjoying back in the day. I think it may have been a Ruby-Spears spin-off from the ABC Weekend Special, but I may even be imaginging it. I can never find it on You Tube.

    And maybe some CB Bears.

    And, yes, the 1970s Filmation 'Tarzan, Lord of the Jungle.' I remember being a really HUGE fan of that series, but I don't know how well it holds up today.

    We put out The Freedom Force as part of the Space Sentinels set, and Jason of Star Command comes out May 8th.

    We don't have the rights to any of the others.
