Popeye is public domain now and can be dowloaded for free from here. I doubt they have them ALL, but I nabbed all of the Fleischer Superman cartoons from here.

Even a broken clock is right twice a day.
From what I've read, the WB restored Popeyes will be spectacular! Also, the Fleischer Superman's are on DVD completely restored from the negatives, but you have to buy the Superman set to get them. Hopefully he animated shorts will come out on their own eventually.
The Popeye's and Supermans are also out on $1.00 DVD's available at many Walmarts (near the checkouts) and dollar stores. The prints are pretty much identical to theones nitemare pointed to at archive.org. Thats because they were provided by an outfit that packages public domain films - Film Chest.
A good tool for determining if some titles are available.

I watched all the episodes of the series on Lonestar, which airs western tv shows and movies in Canada.
I agree with the poster that wrote "Starlost", I remember that show from when I was a kid. I couldn't remember the name until just recently though. That guy on the computer screen was rather irritating.
I would add "Littlest Hobo", the version that ran from 1979 to the mid 80's.
Matt And Jenny, short lived series with Megan Follows.
Swiss Family Robinson, the Canadian Series.
I know they have released a DVD from the English Show "Waiting For God", but there are very few episodes on the DVD they released. It seems to me they should of put more episodes out then that. It is a really terrific show, and unfortunately PBS Detroit, doesn't show it very often.
Fernwood 2Nite, which became America 2Nite in it's second and final season. It was a 1977 spin-off from Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman, and starred Martin Mull and Fred Willard in a brilliant send-up of tv talk shows. It's been shown on TV Land, but it absolutely deserves its own DVD release.

I did look at that link you posted, and it looks quite interesting. The idea of animating the missing episodes is quite clever. I guess we are quite lucky that the audio portion of the missing episodes still exists. I'd love to see them do more of this with the other missing episodes. It may be the only way that we will ever be able to see them. Thank you for the information on this.
Seriously. I know I'm just a major kids show geek all over, but Mysterious Cities of Gold.
It may even be out (in english, PAL, legit form - not ebay knockoffs or the terrible, VHS sourced, french-only canadian version), but like someone going on a sponsored fast, I've waited and hunted long enough that i've got chase-fatigue. I'm not hungry for it anymore. It will almost certainly come out sometime, and when I randomly run across it again (as I did Morph, and Trapdoor, and Ulysses, and Dogtanian without even trying), I will buy it then.
and probably go drive off a cliff as one of my life's major quests will have been ended not with a bang but an inaudible whimper-= She sez there's ants in the carpet, dirty little monsters! =-
Back after a long time away, mainly because I now need to start making up vidcapped DVDRs for work and I haven't a clue where to start any more!
The Alvin Show from 1961. When one episode came out on DVD, it was restored beautifully.
waiting for the Banana Splits to come out on dvd.....
Most of what I sought in 2007 - earlier post - is now available. Pity about WKRP: released, but without the original music. Barney Miller, Night Court, and Max Headroom are all available. A&E never did release any more early episodes of The Saint so I bought a PAL set.
Still waiting for a Blu-Ray of the second season of Stargate Universe. Mysteriously, the Showcase series Continuum is not available on disc in Canada, despite being filmed here.
still waiting for Ed (NBC, 2000)I want NBC's Ed on DVD/Blu-ray!
Beverly Hillbillies, Season 4 and beyond, which include the English Castle episodes, as well as Granny's capturing Ulysses S. Grant at the Culpepper Plantation Battle.. YouTube has these with the fake music.
Casey Jones, Alan Hale Jr's second TV series (after 1952's Biff Baker). With Dub Taylor occasionally giving the steam-whistle some action. One of the first of the Memorable Theme Song series for TV - which obviously wouldn't be Alan Jr's last foray into memorable theme songs.
The Chris Isaak Show, one of the first Showtime series, with the imaginary mermaid giving Chris the rest of life's lessons, with a strong cast serving as Chris' band and a most beautiful Kristin Datillo as his erstwhile manager/agent/sister confessor.
Better Off Ted, Season 2; ah yes, a journey into the real Truth In Advertising business world.
Human Target, Season 2, although Guerrero was too softened in Season 2, some tip o' the hat to Political Correctness.
New Amsterdam, all 7 episodes would be purchased if available. A rather interesting study of the live long & prosper - a VERY long long life, that is. But each episode is slowed with the boring flashbacks that make repeat viewings too banal.
The Invisible Man, Season 2 with Vincent Ventresca still fretting about his brain-implant gland. Yawn - get over it. The complete series was released in Europe for about 8 minutes, but seemed to have gone thru one pressing and disappeared shortly thereafter.
It's Like You Know, which is LA's answer to Seinfeld. While the first two episodes are rather flat (Chris Eigeman as Everyman won't ever be mistaken for Charles Bronson), the rest finally pick up steam and having The Real Jennifer Grey act out crazier parts of her myth are part of the excellence.
Amos & Andy. The 77-episode collection is available in public domain, and deliver a series so well-honed because of 40 years of radio-shows. We have been recently treated to the full Honeymooners' series release and surely it has no more or less political correctness than this hilarious series.
