      I have every episode of Fairy Tale Theatre. I think they're rare, no one ever knows what I'm talking about when I say I have them.

        I taped a ton of things on VHS, most of it I havent watched in years...

        -87 or 88, the first night game at wrigley field.

        -A ton of wrestling, mostly WCW. Goldberg had a huge match, I dont even remember who it was against. It was in front of 30,000 fans in Atlanta? It was the first time he won the title.

        -My most prized vhs tapes are probably old David Copperfield Magic Specials. They were only on tv once, they arent on dvd, and they arent online (not the complete hour). I have orient express, flying, orson wells?, amazon ritual, barkley house.

        -Some cool nba games. Shaq broke a backboard against the phoenix suns in 93, the game was delayed by 30 minutes. That's pretty rare I'm sure. I might only have a quarter or two of the game. The NBA all star game from 91, 92.

        -I think I taped McGwire breaking Maris' homerun record.

        -Mike Tyson losing to Buster Douglas, the original HBO telecast. I couldn't believe that.

        I wish I had taped more rare tv shows, that arent on dvd...muppet babies, maybe wonder years, mr wizard.

                I recently found a copy of Jim Henson's The Christmas Toy at this awesome used bookstore for like, three dollars. Have you seen how much that goes for on Amazon or eBay? Let's just say I got a pretty damn good deal.

                    I own VHS copies of...

                    Jetsons: The Movie
                    The Jetsons Meet the Flintstones
                    Rockin' With Judy Jetson


                    Yep, I used to be a huge Jetsons fan. I love H-B cartoons, but the Jetsons (along with the Flintstones and Yogi Bear) were my favorite. I even had a Jetsons t-shirt.

                    I am considering selling these, as I have not watched them for over around 15 years now, and have been sitting in my closet all these years.

                        I have this VHS released in 1994 called "Virtual 60's: the CONSCIOUNESS Tape". It is hosted by an elderly Timothy Leary and includes 9 performances from kinda well known 60's bands.

                        From the back:
                        "Virtual 60's is the ultimate video trip. Led by psychedelic tour guide Dr. Timothy Leary, the viewer is immersed in the sights, sounds and music of the Woodstock era."

                        I also have a couple alternative music video samplers from the mid 90's and a concert tape called "a weekend in hell" which features performances by grunge acts. I have the original VHS copy of Hype! as well as a copy of the Free Tibet concert (which unfortunately the first time I tried to watch it, the tape broke ). I also have VHS music video collections from NIN, Days of the New, Silverchair, and Smashing Pumpkins' Vieuphoria (whioch is now available on DVD).

                        The GI Joe movie, the Wallace & Gromit series 3-pack.

                        I have episode VHS tapes from Biker Mice from Mars, Muppet Babies, Tiny Toons, Eureka's Castle, and Daria. I HAD a Captain Planet tape as well as a Digimon tape but those were left at a friend's house and never returned.

                        I think that's about it as far as rare/uncommon goes.
                        GHITI is pronounced "fish".

                        THE BEST TRIP IS A NOSTALGIA TRIP!

                        I know some people who would say they were a child of the 60's even though they were born well a

                            I just got a copy of an animated version of The Velveteen Rabbit. I don't mean the one that FHE put out (though I have that too); this one has an "ABC Kidavision" logo on the box, so I'm assuming it was an ABC Weekend Special.

                                  In this age of DVDs, mp3s, and Blue Ray, ANY VHS/Beta tape would be "rare"...

                                    I have the Barbie and the Rockers video, as well as the second one, Barbie and the Sensations. The funny thing is, both aired together on TV as a one-hour special. The group was Barbie and the Rockers throughout the show, even when they went back in time to the 1950's. Why, then, when the special came to video it was:

                                    1. Put on two tapes?
                                    2. Was the name of the group changed into Barbie and the Sensations?

                                    Just something I've always wondered...

                                        I have a tape of Blazing Saddles from 1986. The Warner Home Video logo on it has the Warner Communications byline, and the top of the case has the WHV print logo rather than the name of the movie.

                                        I also found a copy of the TMNT cartoon in Russian at a thrift store, but I never bought it.
