    David,

    I for one am all for this show on DVD. I love it and believe I have seen every episode on comedy Central at least three times each. Rhino put out VHS editions of the show seveal years ago if you are looking for something to tide you over.

    I will sign this too. Anyone interested in this would also be interested in an SCTV DVD release of the entire set of episodes, right?

    Chris,

    My friend works with the lady who manages the rights to SCTV. He told her about my website (see sig file) and I'll (hopefully) be talking to her soon. She told my friend that they're looking at releasing the show on DVD.

    hi...
    i sent this e-mail to Jack Sullivan, CEO of Broadway Video:
    -----
    Mr. Sullivan (or to Whom It May Concern):
    I'm David Shetterly, a fan of the Kids In The Hall show. I have recently started a petition, because fans of the show (myself included) would like to see the show on DVD.
    Moreover, the petition is basically about releasing entire season box-sets of the show, uncut, as they were originally shown. As you probably know, Comedy Central, CBS, and others over the years have edited many sketches, either for time or content. Some episodes have sketches that no one has seen since their original HBO broadcast. It's my belief that fans want to see these shows, and would gladly pay to buy them in a "collector" format like DVD.
    Sucessful season box-sets of TV on DVD include "X-Files", "The Simpsons", "Absolutely Fabulous", "Monty Python's Flying Circus", Michael Moore's "The Awful Truth", HBO's "Sex & The City", "The Sopranos", and more. Future box-sets include "M*A*S*H", "Buffy The Vampire Slayer", "The Larry Sanders Show", "Mr. Show", etc.
    Anyway, if Broadway Video makes the end result of this petition a reality, the fans will definitely reward Broadway Video with their consumer dollars (myself included).
    Here is the URL of the petition:
    http://www.petitiononline.com/kithdvd/
    Thank you for your time.
    David Shetterly

    You might want to try contacting people outside of the forum to try to drum up some support for this release (which I PRAY will happen).
    Go to some of the people with KITH sites, and see if they will not only sign the petition, but put a link to it on their site. Whether they are in to DVDs or not, I think they would like the idea of getting complete sets of Kids!
    Here are a few links (in no paticular order)...
    Barb's Kids In The Hall Millennium
    KITHfan.org: A Whole Lotta Kids In The Hall
    The Kids In The Hall 2000
    These are just a few I found. A lot of them have links to other ones.
    Ian
    (HA! I just saw that that last one already HAS a link to the petition!)

    DavidS,
    You could try posting this info at DVDTalk. There are a lot of KITH fans there.
    I think you already have done this, but if you haven't... definitely post to the newsgroups alt.tv.kids-in-hall , alt.fan.dave-foley and maybe even alt.tv.newsradio and ask the nice folks there if they could post the link on their weblogs (as most of them have websites that they update on a daily basis)
    Alert the most popular KITH mailing list, KITH-Lovers
    http://groups.yahoo.com/group/KithLovers/
    You could also e-mail some of the webmasters of varios KITH-related sites. All that I know are very nice and would be glad to help spread the word. Here are some really popular ones:
    http://wwwvms.utexas.edu/~barbcarr/
    http://www.tavie.com/dave.html
    http://www.kithfan.org
    http://www.kithaa.com
    http://www.mark-mckinney.com
    etc.

    I'm gonna start out right by making my first post to this forum a testament to my love of the KitH. Sig # 126 baby!
    btw, thanks for that non-offensive quote. It's that nasty "t" that just gets everyone up in a hoot.
    Also, I'd like to point out that I r.espectfully registered with my real name instead of using my normal alias, Eradicator [​IMG]

    Count me in. Little in my life compared to the joy I experienced when I had the good fortune to see the Kids live last year.
