    I'd collect the 1st season YCDTOTV eps and go back to 1979 for it.

    Get MCOG and SatSBtS eps from nick as well as

    a tape of GUTS all stars
    Salute your shorts
    Gummi Bears
    Silver surfer and avengers eps.

    for those of you who don't know SatSBtS is Spartikus and the sun Beneath the Sea

    I'd tape as many TV shows, commercials, PSA's, bumpers, promos, and production logos from the 50's-90's as I can and upload 'em onto RJ (if they haven't been done already)!

    I'd tape/record all the Saturday Supercade shows I could...
    ...I'd also tape/record some of the short-lived TV shows that lasted 1-season before getting cancelled. There were a lot in the late 80's or early 90's that I really enjoyed, but were cancelled for one reason or another.

    Two that I can think of:
    - Free Spirit, featuring a hot Corinne Bohrer as a good witch sent to look after a single dad's kids as a house-keeper
    - The Charmings, about Prince Charming & his wife Snow, who somehow get transported into modern-day with their kids & Snow's mother with a wise-cracking mirror. Funny show at times... but you can't find either of these shows anywhere unless someone uploads them to YouTube or gets 'em on DVD.

    I would tape until I ran out of room. Even the commercials would be worth it. I have some tapes of Fox Kids from a few years ago and I even enjoy that. I also have a couple short things from CBS Saturday Morning like Garfield and Where's Waldo? But yeah, definitely CBS storybreak and I also want to see Cro and Conan again. Been thinking about them lately. Oh yeah, and PBS shows!

    Life Goes On
    Today's Special
    Muppet Babies
