    By "a few years ago" don't you mean "right when Cartoon Network first began"? [​IMG] Man, it's been a long time!

    I would not hold out hope for this one. Not enough people know about it. I'd be floored to ever see it on the shelf. Seems like something the creator/producer would have to get behind in order for it to become a reality.

    Edit: There is hope that Boomerang will eventually put episodes back on the air. CN has relegated a lot of the old Hanna-Barbera toons to airings on this channel.

    I agree with Dane on this one, although I remember the show and would definitely buy it. Another 1 that aired early on cartoon network that I'd like to own, but don't expect is the Completely Mental Misadventures of Ed Grimly, it only had a couple seasons run on TV, but I'd buy it in a second. I'm not holding my breath though.

    Man your right, that was like when Cartoon Network began, jess I'm getting old. Completely Mental Misadventures of Ed Grimly, that would also kick ass.

    I don't know about that series, but I'm waiting for the release of "Wait TILL Your Father Gets Home". [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I recall watching this series each week. Tom Bosley's voice was unmistakable. (It aired at 7:30 PM on Tues. or Wed. as I recall, just like "Jonny Quest", which aired during the 7:30 PM time slot in 1964-1965 (so the kiddies would still be awake to view it/them).

    Those were the days when "7:30" was considered "Prime Time" (or maybe "pre-Prime" or something).

    Do the networks still air first-run shows @ 7:30 anymore? (I'm out of the TV "loop" it would appear. Except for 1 show per week. [​IMG])

    The subject of "Wait Till Your Father Gets Home" reminds me of another series of that era, "MY WORLD AND WELCOME TO IT" (1969-1970; ran for just 26 episodes).

    "MWAWTI" starred William Windom and Lisa Gerritsen. (Lisa, just after the short-lived series ended, joined the cast of "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" in 1970; plus did a bit part in the 1970 film "Airport" as well.)

    Somebody correct me if I'm wrong ... But didn't "My World And Welcome To It" feature a rather unique set-up? Meaning: I believe it was "Part Cartoon / Part Real Live Action". Correct? Windom served as kind of a "narrator" of the story lines I believe.

    I would adore it if this series came out on DVD. Maybe when Happy Days hits, since Tom Bosley is the dad in both.

    If my iffy memory serves, the series itself was all live action; the animation you recall was the opening sequence of each episode.

    Wasn't the audio portion of "Father" reused for another, updated, cartoon many years later? I don't remember the details though.

    I haven't seen this show since the mid '70's. If I ever do see it again, I wonder if it'll hold up? For some reason shows from that era just stand the test of time for me as well as shows from the prior or subsequent decade.

    Is there any word on this? I wouldn't expect anything big, but I loved this show when I used to watch it on CN.

    You know, it's funny you bump this thread, because I was JUST thinking about this show yesterday!

    Still no word, though, sorry. I assume Warner owns it, so maybe we'll see it on one of the HB collections down the road. After all, if we can get Penelope Pitstop... [​IMG]
