    Did you enter these on a tvshowsondvd.com account too?

    I doubt studios will look at numerous HTF threads for research. They are more likely to look at the rankings at tvshowsondvd.com or just do a public survey like columbia-tristar did.

    Grouped by studio for shows above

    FOX

    Batman: trying, don't hold your breath
    WKRP in Cincinnatti- Music issues[/quote]

    Goosebumps>
    Bobby's World- All now owned by Disney I believe,
    don't hold your breath
    Life With Louie>

    WARNER

    The Dukes of Hazzard- On the way
    Night Court- Heard it's under consideration
    The Adventures of Superman- Don't hold your breath
    Lois & Clark- Will probably happen eventually along w/Flash

    Paramount:

    Mission: Impossible(All)- Probably with MI3 movie
    Star Trek: TOS (in full season sets)- 2005 from rumors

    Star Trek: The ANimated Series- Licensing problems, probably the issue that Hallmark owns the animation, but Paramount owns ST

    MacGyver- Heard some rumblings, but they were supposed to be tied to "young MacGyver", which never got greenlighted.

    Happy Days- Music rights are hell on it, 50/50


    Universal:
    The Incredible Hulk (The TV Pilot was a good start!)- There's some kind of set coming in November, think it's a best-of though

    The A-Team- Believe Columbia House has this right now

    Murder, She Wrote- I'm going to say unlikely, because the audience for this show isn't quite in the right demo for good sales. It was a good show though. [/quote]

    Columbia/Tristar:
    Married...With Children (full seasons!)- October,
    Soap- I believe that was a successful canidate from their survey.
    Ghostbusters(all)- Columbia has not really released their animated stuff at all, and frankly have you WATCHED extreme Ghostbusters? Not only was the animation and stories poor, but it should have been called "PC Ghostbusters", Every ethnic group and even the handicapped? All the charm that "Real" had was gone.

    Jeff, I've seen several episodes of Extreme Ghostbusters. I agree that it paled in comparison to the original series, but on it's own it was pretty decent, I enjoyed it and would buy the DVDs if released.

    And on Goosebumps, I never knew Disney owned the rights, does Fox still have them or no more? I know they distributed the videos (which are still sold at stores I believe). Do you have an e-mail for Disney where I could contact them about shows they own, DVD releases, etc.?

    Fox sold their entire "family" lineup including Fox Kids to Disney with the Family channel. Disney has no clue that they even own half these properties, or that people want to see them (like Tick animated). Call the 800# listed on Disney DVDs (I think it's 1-800-4-Disney) and tell them what you want.

    Don't hold your breath

    Jeff, thanks for the information, is the number you can call Disney asking them about DVDs free? Not to sound stupid, I currently don't own any Disney DVDs. Do they also have an e-mail I can use to ask them?

    It's an 800 number, they're all free (along with 888, 866 and I think there's one more)

    1 phone call is with at least 5 emails. 1 snail mail letter is worth 10 phone calls.

    Thanks again Jeff, I'll call them in a few days from now and ask them if they plan to release any of the shows I mentioned onto DVD (or at least re-air them on the Family Channel which they now own).

    The CSR won't know the answers to your questions, they'll just take down your request

    I'll try asking them anyway, it's worth a try, and it's possible if their asked maybe they'll become aware of the properties they own.

    OK, well the CSRs don't control anything. They're basically secretaries. They don't know anything about anything not out or on the release schedual. They have no control over what gets released other than taking the shows you want to see and entering them in a database.

    That's good enough, at least they'll know they own the property and there's always the possibility it just might get a release.

    How'bout some of Gregory Peck's great ones?
    i.e.
    THE GUNFIGHTER (1950) or the earlier DUEL IN THE SUN.
