Ok I gotta know does this bug anybody else?
« on: Tuesday 22 June 2010, 04:35 am »
Why hasn't WB released the final volume of Animaniacs yet? What's with this? Also why is volume 4 of the Muppet Show not announced either. This I can't understand these are very popular shows right? I mean why do we need rehashes of the same stuff but we don't finish some of the others?

So I gotta know does this bother anyone else and do you have a series that seems to be stalling that you are waiting for?

I was very frustrated when it took nearly 3 years for Punky Brewster season 4 to be released! And then when the date came they pushed it back again one more week! It was frustrating.

I know they have had problems with series do to different reasons. Like Married with Children had a hard time getting the rights to use the Frank Sinatra song in the opening of the show. The Sinatra family (or who ever else owns it) wanted way to much money. So every season (other then the 1st) has a different song in the intro which totally sucks cuz that song was awesome!

They had the same issue I believe with some others like Ally McBeal. It sucks I know. :(

if you think about it this is all dependent on who owns the copyrights for the characters, theme song, etc... it is really really annoying.  in some cases the owner of X show said yes while the one who owns the theme song says no way, or wants huge royalties.   i still wish we could have all of the digimon series on DVD already.

On a similar topic did anyone else like Malcom in the middle? I bought the 1st series and then... nothing does anyone know what happened?

And why have they never released Muppet babies?

I don't know what happened to Malcolm in the Middle and Muppet Babies. But I have them both, not official copies of course. If you want them, you can get practically any series on www.ioffer.com

I have lots of rare tv series and movies and have never been released and probably will never be released on DVD.

who knows what happend with malcom. As far as the muppet babies I'm guessing it's the same reason we are still waiting for the muppet show. Someone somewhere has the rights to something and doesn't want to relinquish them or wants major royalties. I'm pretty sure Animaniacs is held up cause they changed networks the last  season.

I agree with the muppet show. It's supposed to be released this year but here it is over half way though the year and still no season 4, not even a whisper, or a hint. Bah.

I miss one called Rockos's Modern Life. The only time I have found it is a handfull of episodes on vhs tapes. Another one would be the pirates of dark water they ended the series with only 13 episodes they never finished it I wish that they had.

Rocko's Modern Life is on Netflix instantplay. :) It must be one that's only a digital download.

I know I have the Clarissa Explains it All Season One DVD set. Then a different company got the rights or something. Anyways, a bunch of old Nick is for download on iTunes. Also, Amazon.com has an affiliate that will burn the seasons you want on demand of certain shows. I'm cool with that.

It's just that I want to finish the series I started with physical copies with a physical copy. :-D

I know it took forever for the last volume of Fraggle Rock to come out.  Like a few years later.  Totally frustrating.
