Also:

Picket Fences - US (only Season 1 from Fox) / Australia (all 4 seasons from Madman)
Chicago Hope - US (nothing) / UK (all 6 seasons from Revelation Films)
Cosby (90s sitcom with Madeline Kahn) - US (nothing) / Germany (all 4 seasons from Tiberius Film)


Elephant Films also released the complete 1-season set of Holmes & Yoyo, which is still unavailable in Region 1. However, this set does not include an English language option. Elephant Films also released Whiz Kids. This one included an English track but was missing several episodes.

I recall that there was also a German release of Kentucky Jones. But unlike the Cosby release, Kentucky Jones does not include an English track and was said to not include all episodes.

Alfred Hitchcock Presents and The Alfred Hitchcock Hour have been available in their entirety from both Australia (Madman) and the UK (Fabulous Films), while only the 1st 6 seasons of AHP are available in Region 1 (Universal).

Well, if we're including shows that didn't get any kind of US release at all...

The Fantastic Journey (1977), full series on DVD in Australia
Darkroom (1982), full series on DVD in Australia
Captain Nice (1967), full series on DVD in German, but with no English language track and heavily-edited episodes

Isn't Madigan another Elephant Films France release? I can only find the film on Amazon UK, unless I missed it.

I thought German release of The Detectives had no English track.

The 1968 Filmation cartoon series, Fantastic Voyage, (very) loosely based on the 1966 feature film, got a 'complete series' release from Revelation Films LTD in the U.K., licensed from Fox.

Fury was released complete in Germany. Only a spattering of episodes released in the U.S.

Adventures of Hiram Holiday was partially released in Germany.

The Forest Rangers was released in Canada.

Not positive, but I’m thinking portions of Rin Tin Tin were released overseas as well (but don’t quote me on that).


Gary “several good vintage series have been released outside the U.S.A.” O.

I am having trouble finding Season 6 of Hitchcock. I don't know if it went out of print or not. I don't see it listed now on Amazon and if it shows up on Ebay, it is selling for a very high price.
