I know The New Howdy Doody Show has a bad reputation among fans of the original Howdy Doody show -- heck, I watched it in 1976 and was a big fan, yet I'll be the first one to tell you the original show was better -- but I retain a fondness for it and it continues to be a "guilty pleasure." I enjoyed the reruns on Cozi-TV recently (not sure if they're still running it, but this summer on the Fourth Of July holiday they ran a few original Howdy Doody episodes including the final show in color from 1960 -- one of the ones they ran had Howdy running for President, and they had a short feature about this including a brief clip of the original Howdy puppet from the first months of the show; I'd never seen anything but a still photo or two, so this was very cool to see -- but I digress). Anyway, I happened to stumble on what is apparently a new release of the 1976 series on DVD. Like in the past, this is just a sampler of shows and not anything comprehensive. However, the majority of them have not been released before: http://www.thenewhowdydoodyshow.com/ Is this legit? It has the name Memory Lane on it, which I believe is the company that currently distributes the series. They have a couple You Tube links, one of which shows the original (unaltered) 1976 opening from one of the shows, complete with the intro "from the sunshine state, Florida" (which was cut off the earliest VHS releases of the show in the late 1990s; those VHS tapes also had the closing credits missing from every episode). Later releases had a completely re-edited show opening and closing, which is what has appeared on all DVD releases of various episodes to date. The COZI showings had the original opening and closings. What leads me to question the legitimacy is the You Tube link has a superimposed "E/I" in the corner for shows that meet educational programming requirements. I thought that was done at broadcast level? Anyway, what I would really like to see is a complete series set, but there were 130 episodes, so maybe it would be overkill.
