Shows you want from Warner Archive

Don’t include shows that have already been released that you just haven’t purchased.

This is to list WB shows that you want released for the first time or a continuation of a certain series.

At this point, Warner Archive is basically the only hope for these shows.

Here’s my list:
The Drew Carey Show: remaining seasons
Murphy Brown: remaining seasons
It’s a Living: all seasons
Smurfs: remaining seasons

These will most likely be released soon:
Alice: remaining seasons
Perfect Strangers: remaining seasons
Step by Step: remaining seasons

  2. Hanna-Barbera's Jeannie cartoon series. They have to work out a deal with Sony who owns the Jeannie character. I think Warner owns the Babu character, who went on to Laff-A-Lympics while Jeannie did not.

  3. Note: The 1st show on my list below is the only one that I think has an actual chance of happening. Still, I'd be happy to see any or all of the others released. And I'm probably missing something, but here's what I came up with (some of which I've never seen but am curious enough to purchase anyway):

    Alice – the rest
    The Eleventh Hour – the rest
    Murphy Brown – the rest
    77 Sunset Strip
    A Man Called Hawk
    Adam's Rib
    Bourbon Street Beat
    Bronk
    Cain's Hundred
    Chico and the Man
    Code R
    The George Carlin Show
    Goodnight Beantown
    Harry's Law
    The John Larroquette Show
    Love, Sidney
    Many Happy Returns
    The Mississippi
    The New Dick Van Dyke Show
    Off the Rack
    Please Don't Eat the Daisies
    Private Benjamin
    Rafferty
    Room for Two
    Temple Houston
    Wendy and Me

    …and several animated series, with The Abbott and Costello Cartoon Show and the rest of 60s Popeye being at the top of my Warner TV cartoon wish list.

  4. I always thought that Father Of The Bride (1961 ) was controlled by WB . Anyone know ? It's one that I would like to see released , along with No Time For Sergeants , Wendy And Me , A Room For One More , Colt 45 , Alaskans , Many Happy Returns , and the "untouchable" detective shows

  7. The Thin Man – sure Peter Lawford pales in comparison to William Powell, but I've enjoyed the few episodes that I've seen.
    The Roaring Twenties – have never seen this show, but given how much I like The Untouchables, I'd be willing to take a look at what may very well be a knock-off series.

  8. How about Goodnight Beantown (w/Bill Bixby and Mariette Hartley)– this short-lived 1982-83 and 1983-84 CBS comedy (which was on for 5 outings on Sundays at 8 at the bottom of the 1982-83 season [same exact dates, believe it or not, as those of the miniseries of O-R Dallas, which is the first season on the first-and-second-season DVD release of that series], and then for 13 more outings on Sundays at 9:30 [before Trapper John, M.D.] from Oct. 1983 to Jan. 1984) had, at least IMO, a pretty catchy title track, especially in its second and final season. Here is the first part of a second-season episode of that CBS comedy, "A Felon Needs a Girl," OAD Oct. 15, 1983 on CBS (the video incorrectly states Oct. 16):

  9. Arthur Powell

    The Thin Man – sure Peter Lawford pales in comparison to William Powell, but I've enjoyed the few episodes that I've seen.
    The Roaring Twenties – have never seen this show, but given how much I like The Untouchables, I'd be willing to take a look at what may very well be a knock-off series.

    Oh, yes, how I wish both those shows could bust out of the vault. Unfortunately, there appears to be real rights complications with both, literary estate, music etc. Roaring '20s was a decent show, definitely Warner's attempt to cash in on the huge success of The Untouchables, but differing from The Untouchables with it's emphasis on comedy and music in the template of other popular WB shows like 77 Sunst Strip, Hawaiian Eye, etc. But I've only seen two episodes in the collecting era. I Dimly remember watching it first run, strongest memories are of it's catchy theme music and opening credits montage of wild and hilarious 1920s imagery.

    I thought that Peter Lawford and Phyllis Kirk were a very creditable Nick and Nora. They certainly exemplified the boozy and classy cool of the original characters, transposed to the late 1950s, although they weren't the great Myrna Loy and William Powell. A fun show, good mysteries, some big name guest stars (especially in season two) and the well schooled and cute antics of Asta. Here are some seldom seen publicity photos for The Thin Man

  10. The Little People, Mr. Roberts, No Time For Sergeants, Cain's Hundred, Many Happy Returns, Doc Elliot, Mr. Novak, Adam's Rib, Hot Pursuit so I can finally see the last 3 shows they burned off in the summer.

  11. I would agree with that Ben, definitely the same concept and charming feel to those two shows. I don't know if the publicity machine behind Hart to Hart referenced The Thin Man, movies and tv, but I bet they did. Mr. and Mrs. North also mined the same theme, and I bet in the long history of television there are others too.

    Mr. and Mrs. North also mined the same theme, and I bet in the long history of television there are others too.

    Indeed– even the back side of that four-disc Mr. and Mrs. North release had a mention of Hart to Hart (I don't have that release anymore, else I'd scan the back of that release and show it).

  13. I really REALLY appreciate WA releasing more and more titles but I wish they'd complete a show before they started on another one. It makes me worry when they stop releasing a show and start on 2 or 3 others.

    That being said (and I agree), how far has Alice gotten?

  15. Guys, do you think its sales that can make a WB title move to the front of the line? If a newly released series does really well, WB Archives will speed up the release dates of following seasons? Conversely if a tv show does poorly, it goes to the back of the line till enough copies are sold to justify a second release?

    ^^^Possibly but not sure.

    I know once they started with season 5 of "Family Matters", that series was wrapped up quickly.

    "Living Single" is also getting finished quick.

    And OT, but similar– when Shout! carried forward with the third go of Hart to Hart, all of the rest of that ABC detective/romance series (1981-84) was out quite quickly.

  17. I really wish they would release the remaing seasons of MADtv or at least season 5 and 6. I’ve been waiting for Shout to continue but it’s been 5 years since they last release any seasons. So WA maybe my only hope.

    Yes! Season 5 was one of the best. I'd like to own at least 5, 6, & 7 so all of the Ms. Swan sketches can be completed.

    She also appeared once in season 9 (which is included as a special feature on the season 1 DVD), once in 10 (included on the best of seasons 8, 9, & 10 DVD), and once in 14…which is unavailable.

  19. RICK BOND

    The Adventures of Superman on Bluray !!! 52 B&W Episodes and 52 Color Episodes. That would be GREAT ! But I know it will NEVER happen. I can dream can't I.

    We were lucky at all to get this series.
    Warner did this DVD set on the cheap and despite the less than stellar print quality, had respectable sales.
    Several years ago I spoke with both Jack Larson and Noel Neill about this set and they told me Warner Bros.wouldn't pay them for their narration, but because of their love for the show, they did it for free.
