Just the ones that I doubt will come out?

-The Wonder Years - If it does come out, it may not be in recognizable form due to possible music replacements.
-Blake's 7 - From what I hear, the UK releases are excellent. But there are some bizarre rights issues I think (or someone is just being stingy) with the series that may be holding up any chance of a Region 1 release.
-Jim Henson's Muppet Babies - Can this ever be managed? They used a ton of film clips over the years, including stuff from Indiana Jones and Star Wars. None of this stuff can be cut out, a la Beavis & Butthead episodes. At least Disney owns this property now and has a lot of money to work en route to possibly obtaining the rights someday.
-Square Pegs - Come on, Sony. One painless release and it's over with. Do it!
-Batman (1966) - They already know everyone wants it, but a clash between studios is preventing a green light?

Stuff I want and am sure will be released eventually:

-Tiny Toon Adventures
-Welcome Back, Kotter

Ghostwriter is something that I will never think of and I would like to see it on tv box set but it's never going to happen but I can wish that it was...

Here's my list of shows that probably won't get DVD releases anytime soon:

Out of this World
Ferris Bueller (1990 TV series)
A compilation release for America's Most Wanted (kind of like what was done for Unsolved Mysteries and COPS)
The Tracey Ullman Show
Mr. Belvedere
Uncut episodes of ALF
Freddy's Nightmares
Friday the 13th: The Series
Just the Ten of Us (though if Growing Pains gets released on DVD, then it might have hope)
Any of the Married...With Children spinoffs (Top of the Heap and Vinnie and Bobby)
Sanford Arms

Another one I might have to go fan-to-fan for: "Out Of This World". I loved this show when I was a kid, and I've been waiting for DVDs for a while now. Sincerely, John Kilduff... Also, I want this because I want to see a live-action role by Joe Alaskey (the former voice of Plucky Duck on "Tiny Toon Adventires" and the current voice of Daffy Duck).

I have zero confidence in ever seeing the following shows released, although I'd love to own them: WONDER YEARS - I just can't see it happening with all the music intact, which is a must for this show (no music subs allowed - period!!). DANIEL BOONE - Fox owns this, and I have very little confidence in their commitment to older series. FATHER KNOWS BEST - Same problem as above, only substitute Columbia Tri-Star for Fox. TARZAN (Ron Ely series) - I just don't see this happening even though it was a solid show, IMHO. ROUTE 66 - This should come out, but I don't think it will. DOBIE GILLIS HONEY WEST THE UNTOUCHABLES 77 SUNSET STRIP HAWAIIAN EYE PATTY DUKE SHOW Gary "there are other shows that haven't been announced, but I still think they have a great shot at coming out so I didn't list them here per the subject line" O.

Curiously, MGM/UA released a two-disc laserdisc set of representative episodes from THE PATTY DUKE SHOW a number of years ago. Stunning, crisp quality... and most episodes contained the original commercials too, many of which featured Duke hawking the products (aspirin, hairspray) herself!

Exactly, that is why I put this in the topic tv shows you want on dvd but highly doubt they'll come out.

But remember the muppet babies have 4 episodes on 4 dvds that came out in 2003 with the plushies. So maybe it is possible.Posted Image

Melrose Place (With Desperate Housewives a hit, you'd think they'd release this...not only because of the overlapping cast members, but they both fall into the "night time soap" category) Square Pegs Kolchak: The Night Stalker Parker Lewis Can't Lose Beverly Hills 90210 (I'd settle for just the High School years) Overall though, I'm pretty happy with what's released, and what's being released.

Alias Smith & Jones
BJ & The Bear

The Big Valley
Charlie Hoover (despite having Sam Kinison, it only lasted 7 episodes!)
Cliffhangers (Curse of Dracula, Secret Empire, Stop Susan Williams)
Cover Up

Fall Guy
Friday The 13th The Series
The George Carlin Show

Misfits of Science
Monty (Henry Winkler's comeback only lasted 5 episodes!)

Voyagers (there's always bootlegs on ebay Posted Image)
Walking Tall (the movies were popular, but the show only lasted 7 episodes)
The Wild, Wild West
