    Shhh, don't mention Jabberjaw. It's on the "forget-about-it" list.

    How about the "pretend it never existed" list..

    I would take Challenge of the Go-Bots and kick the rest of them to the curb.

    I remember Rubik the Amazing Cube. Why wouldn't you want it released on dvd? Did the show only last one season?

    Rubik the Amazing Cube was awful and so was Jabberjaw. It was a really stupid idea making a TV show about a possesed Rubic's cube and it was awful. Jabberjaw has got to be the worst Scooby-Doo ripoff ever. I can't imagine anyone watching that show without being high on drugs.

    Obviously. ^^ The art kind of gives it away, as well as the characters on the show and let's not forget that Penelope Pitstop's character was in the Wacky Races, and had that Dasterdly villain in it or either the other guy that was sorta like him, and Muttly.

    Perils of Penelope Pitstop has already been released on DVD, unfortunately. I have to admit that I always liked wacky Races, but I never liked Perils, even as a kid. I'm glad to see how some of you feel the same about... He Who Must Not Be Named .

    Here's a few to add to the list:

    Fred And Barney Meet The Thing (1979, NBC)
    Fred And Barney Meet The Schmoo (1980, NBC)
    Foofur (1987, NBC)

    Just so happens that certain episodes of the latter show were released on VHS (I have two of them, perhaps the only two that were ever released).

    Oh, and I should also mention a really lame prime-time variety show that H-B produced for NBC sometime around the mid-'80's which had 2 awful looking old-lady marionettes (I remember one of them looked like a knock-off of Waylon Flowers' Madam puppet) who served as the hosts of the show. Pretty much most of the show was used up showing performers (and sometimes ice skaters) dressed in H-B stock character costumes (like the ones you'd see at the King's Island and King's Dominion theme parks at the time). Fortunately, it only lasted a few weeks before the network gave it the ax. I'd be surprised if anyone other than me has even a faint memory of this show!

    There is one H-B show that I would definitely like WHV to release. This was also a prime-time show produced for NBC called "Jokebook". This one featured animated comedy sketches in the style of SNL. It also showcased some brilliant animated shorts by independent filmmakers in the animation genre. This one lasted at least a good 6 months before the network took it off for good. Again, I'd be surprised if anyone remembers this one.
