    I wonder if that was frequently shortened since from about 25 seconds in until the 53 second mark, I don't really remember that portion of the introduction?

    "The Green Hornet" - definitely a holy grail

    My Holy Grail would be the complete series of Benson with the 3 filmed alternate endings of the series.

    I watched that YouTube video of "Go Home, Clayton" a few days ago! Thanks for letting me know the title. All I ever saw was the syndicated version which was chopped up. It was even funnier seeing the full version. The syndication version chopped off the part of Benson letting air out of Pete's tires. I always wondered why Pete needed an air pump as it was never explained in the syndicated version. Thanks again!

    Post-1994 Macross. But that'll never happen.

    No problem Ron1973!! Glad I could help!! And glad you enjoyed!! I always felt that Benson was one of those shows that couldn't afford to be syndicated or chopped up in order to enjoy properly. A lot of important, funny parts are left out, or it ends abruptly as the syndicated versions cut off the end. That's another reason why I'm hoping for a complete unedited version of the complete series.

    A minor one by comparison, but the 2001 Transformers: Robots in Disguise. Yes it was a silly anime dub, but has not been seen for so long in the States. Some episodes not at all due to being just after 9/11.

    Not sure if it quite qualifies as a holy grail, but a HD remastering of Combat! along the lines of what some other iconic programs have received (Including fellow Image Entertainment releases The Dick Van Dyke Show and the Twilight Zone) would be welcomed.

    You'd think that with the current popularity of one of its stars, it would be time to revive Malcolm in the Middle for dvd...!

    Lawrence Welk was on from 1951-1982.

    First locally in Los Angeles from 1951-1955 then on ABC from 1955-1971 and first run syndication from 1971-1982. All together 31 years or so. Probably more like 30 1/2 years since it was on ABC for 27 1/2 years.

    hi brian,

    with that length, i can see why not all 31 years are gonna be waited on, before a complete series would be put out.

    Lawrence Welk would be a clearance nightmare!

    I'm guessing the Holy Grails for 2015 have slowed down immensly. I'm hoping for Young Maverick this year. Wish there was more news.

    My classic TV holy grails at this point are a) The Ghost and Mrs. Muir, and b) The Odd Couple with music clearances.


    Neither are particularly likely.

    I'm still hoping for Benson. But I've almost given up hope. No music issues that I'm aware of either, so who knows?

    My holy grail for me is the final two seasons of Mr. Belvedere.
