    There are probably more, but the first five that came to mind...

    5. Wait Till Your Father Gets Home - Cartoon Network used to air this every once in a while (probably more than a decade ago) and I loved it. Wish I had taped a few episodes. I'm not sure if this was a HB show; if it is then there's at least a chance of seeing it released.

    4. The Amazing Race 2-6, 8+ - I've got no idea what's going on with this show. There hasn't been a release or any news in almost a year, but the producer has said (in July or August IIRC) that they intend to release them all. I'd even buy the Family Edition.

    3. The Beatles - I don't know about most Beatles fans, but I'd rather see the 1965 cartoon series (complete, with even the "un-PC" parts included) than a Cirque de Soleil show.

    2. The Wonder Years - It's safe to say that we'll never get it with all the original music, but as long as it isn't completely bastardized, I'd love to own this.

    1. Survivor: Africa, Marquesas, Thailand, and Amazon - It's bad enough that they aren't releasing them in order. It's awful when you realize that Vanuatu is being released before all of these.

    "Needs to be" is not quite the way I would put it but the 10 shows that really should be on DVD (and limiting it to 10 is difficult)

    The Untouchables
    Hawaii Five-O
    The Invaders
    Dobie Gillis
    Burns and Allen
    The Defenders
    Ben Casey

    Anthony, click over to the Hanna Barbera thread. Looks like WAIT TILL YOUR FATHER GETS HOME may be released next year!

    Also remember watching it on Cartoon network. Liked it too.

    I forgot all about Undressed, that was a pretty fun show, and I imagine it would sell decently if they priced it right!
