What about stuff like Disney's 'The Little House' from 1952 that doesn't fit neatly in a series like their Silly Symphonies line or features a common character that is seen across multiple shorts?

Great lists!!!

Under Rankin-Bass, you can add the following:

Festival of Family Classics: 16 of the 20 episodes have been released on various DVDs

King Kong Show: 2 volumes of toons featuring King Kong segments and Tom Thumb 007 segments

Several other episodes of R-B shows were released on VHS but never found their way to DVD.

FYI,

Many of the Hanna-Barbera releases have gone out of print, I have updated the list to indicate which ones. I am a bit surprised by this, why wouldn't Warner Bros. just re-issue these sets, at least some of the more popular ones like The Flintstones or Jonny Quest?!

Or put them in the cloud and charge a reasonable subscription fee. The copyright holders need to get with the times and embrace technology. Discs are always nice for an archive and offline viewing, but the future is in video on demand (both environmentally and economically). Likely, it'll happen once the majority of the 4 billion people without internet access get online.

anyone know if the Ant and the Aardvark bluray set is the theatrical versions or does it have the laugh tracks ? I'm hoping for no laugh tracks .

According to the "Think Pink" group on Facebook, comic historian Mark Arnold reports that there are NO laugh tracks on any of the shorts for The Ant and the Aardvark, or The Inspector being prepared for release by Kino Lorber. The exception will be the releases for Crazy Legs Crane and Misterjaw.

No Sid and Marty Krofft shows? No Land of the Lost? No HR Puffinstuff? Epic fail!

Also, you've missed a bunch of anime. At quick glance, you've got the Speed Racer but no Star Blazers, Robotech, Battle of the Planets, Astro Boy and Gigantor.

I realize that it's been four years. But you can get Jonny Quest now, either on Blu-Ray or on repackaged DVD. There's also a repackaged DVD of "The Flintstones: The Complete Series." No Blu-Ray for that one, as far as I know.

I am told that the remaining seasons of Gummi Bears are on DVD in Australia (Region 4), albeit in single-disc issues.

Any chance this list could get updated, including shows from the 2000's? I'd have a lot to contribute.
Hey,

Sorry for the late reply, I usually only check the TV on DVD threads once a month when I do updates for new releases.

I originally intended for these TV on DVD lists to be primarily for classic TV (1950s-1990s) as that is what I am familiar with and where my interests lie. Having said that though, I have added 2000s series to the sitcom & drama lists so I would be willing to expand this list as well. Send me the listings you would like to see added but keep in mind that this list is organized by production company not decade.

Thanks.
