This battle just can't be an easy one can it?! After 18 years of lobbying, we get only 12 out of 21 episodes? Maybe by 2018, we'll get the other half. Well, by then, personal TV will allow us to choose any episode of any TV show on record, so it won't matter if we bug a particular network.
Well, until then (shameless plug coming), come to the Video Archive and download the missing episodes: http://fly.to/boragora
: It looks like TV Land is only going to run 12 episodes! The Ultra-weenies!!!!! Starting July 8, they're going to start running the same 12 episodes again, starting with Legends are Forever and Last Chance Louie, which they aired in January. The following week they'll air Black Pearl and Ape Boy, despite the fact that they aired just six weeks before. We can try writing letters to the TV Land Bigwigs, asking them to air all the episodes (Just don't call them Ultra-weenies). I've tried e-mail, but I just get the same basic form letter answer (see below):
: Thanks for your letter. The show you are asking about was shown as part of our periodic "library dipping". Basically, this means it was never really a part of our regular line up, but part of a special airing of a show for a short period of time with only a limited number of episodes available to us.I have noted your interest in the show for our Programming department.
: Thanks for your interest and feedback.
: Postmaster Steve
: Nick at Nite & TV Land Online
: I'll be updating the main page soon to rally the troops to get *all* the episodes back on TV.
