Will Nickelodeon ever get on the TV DVD bandwagon?

    I was curious if Nickelodeon will ever come out will season sets for some of their TV shows

    I'm actually refering to You Can't Do That On Televison, starring a 15yr old Alanis Morrissette[​IMG]
    I love, love this show. Almost as much as Saved by the Bell.

    I know there is some other choice stuff from the early 90's but I really can't remember their TV shows back then(except for Hey Dude!)

    Nick shows are released/distributed through Paramount. Some of the shows already represented on DVD (or about to be) in SOME fashion are:
    • Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius, The
    • Blue's Clues
    • Dora the Explorer
    • Little Bill
    • Rocket Power
    • Rugrats
    • SpongeBob SquarePants

    As you see, the releases skew toward the currently popular animated shows. I think there is some trepidation there about the idea of releasing the live-action shows, especially one from 1979. They probably think noone remembers it.

    Well, over at TVShowsOnDVD, we have voters who want enough of it to place it in the top 7% of most-requested shows among site users, and 91% of those voters want it in season sets! And, lest someone think that this isn't representative of the current Nick audience, I'll remind them that the sliming is still going on at the upcoming Nick Awards that Rosie O'Donnell is going to host...a mega-star is supposed to get slimed again.

    Now why would the show that inspired all of that be left in the vaults? This house would make a good home to all of that. [​IMG]

    Some of those may have rerun on Nick, but I don't think were Nick originals. I don't have time today to research it, though.

    It would be nice for a lot of those live-action shows to be represented on DVD. But, as I said, Nick seems to be feeding Paramount the animated stuff from the last decade.

    Wouldn't hesitate to pick these two up if released. They both have an ageless quality.

    Just imagine a "Pete and Pete" collection with every episode and every short. I would buy it in a second.

    What about Rocko's Modern Life?! Or Ren and Stimpy? I'd love to see full season sets of both but I'd be suprised if it happened.

    Pete and Pete.

    All the shorts.

    All the full length specials.

    All the episodes from all three seasons.

    It could fit in a 6 disc boxset.

    And Salute Your Shorts.

    That should be 2 - 3 discs at the most.

    And cant forget Welcome Freshmen.

    The chick from Welcome Freshmen played a ho in Phone Booth.

    And cant forget You Can't Do That on Television?

    And Roundhouse.

    Damn straight.

    I would do a kangaroo leap over everyone in line, knocking down my own mother and grandmother if need be.

    Heck, to this day, I will stop dead in my tracks when the Volkswagon commercial with the kid who played "endless mike" comes on (you can't imagine how I would run from the other room back when Big Pete was doing Ameritrade commericals!)

    Pete and Pete is the best thing Nickelodeon ever did.

    Heh, went to highschool with the younger Pete. Never did caer for that show, so didn't matter much for me.

    But I really wish that Nick would start a 'classic Nick' network, like TV Land, only for older Nick shows like Out of Control. Just re-run them constantly like they do on that Nick Toon Channel...
