    I have readed the FAQ and use the searcher but had no luck finding anything about this series, it just comes with a bucketload of results and all the ones that I checked (Lots of them) weren't what I was searching. Even Google barely helps, most useful pages that I was able to find were from Wikipedia [url]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Legends_of_Treasure_Island[/url] and ToonHound [url]http://www.toonhound.com/legends.htm[/url].
    This series entry does not figures in RetroJunk database and I didn't manage to get its intro in any of the Link supplied in the Sticky Threads, so I request someone that actually got some data of this series to post it, because in hours of searching it barely finded anything. Another good serie that is as hard to come by as The Dreamstone...

    It's not that simple sadily.

    Legends of Treasure Island was produced by Filmfair and it had some of the animators for The Dreamstone involved.

    It had 2 series. Series 1 in 1993 and the long awaited series 2 in 1995. It only had 1 video release in the UK and one DVD release in the US (featuring some of the series 1 episodes put together as a 80 minute film).

    The whole 26 episodes was released by Reel Entertainment in Australia during the 90's, however these tapes are hard to come by!

    Unless someone has US DVD ripping software, seeing the intro is unlikely.

    Well I'm sure one of our UK or American members has it Somewhere, hopefully someone reading this is listening.

    Well I certanly can't do it, I don't have video capture software or DVD ripping software.

    Maybe someday a new article can be opened, but I doubt it for a long while!

    I can't believe than two of my most favourites series, the Legends of Teasure Island and the Dreamstone, are so hard to find. By the way, no entry of this serie appears in Retrojunk database, does someone with more knowledge about it (And probabily with a photo or two) than me care to upload an entry so it on the least appears for anyone that searchs the Retrojunk TV Shows?

    I doubt much pictures exsist of the show, unless you find a pic of a German DVD cover.

    Here's the link to the Dreamstone page here o this site, how it appeared I'll never know, since this website tends to have more American shows then anything else.

    Ok I've added 3 new TV shows and I tried to add as many of the cast members as I could, but seeing as these are rare British shows the resources are limited but here are the links (more cast members will be added by the Retrojunk moderators soon, I hope. I just added more cast members to each show).

    Thanks for your effort The Wikipedia and ToonHound Links that I provided in my first Post got the cast members, I could try to add them here. About The Dreamstone entry, it was introduced by a member of Mike Jupp own Forum, where you can find many The Dreamstone fans.
    These shows are VERY rare, I spended many hours searching for them everywhere getting little or no info. I was also lucky to find them, because as I saw the latinoamerican version in spanish, I had a bad time attemping to translate it because the name of many series isn't from the direct traduction in english. And no latinoamerican seems to remember them neither... Considering the minimal general knowledge about this series, if we keep waiting, in 5 more years no one would even remember than it ever existed if we don't refresh the memory of the ones that were hopelessly searching for it with no luck. I'm going to cry if I keep getting nostalgic like this

    You know I added some of the info on the Dreamstone page and most of the cast members have been added, though some members of the cast is still unkown especially (for Treasure Island) where it comes to Series 2.

    Legend of Treasure Island was one of my favorite cartoons as a child (I actually watched it prior to reading Stevenson's original novel ops. I can still remember the final episode (or at least I think it was the final one, I'm not sure).

    CONTAINS SPOILERS!

    The final episode was 'One For All' when Jim and the others found the treasure, Long John Silver returned to the underworld and Pew kills Captain Smollet. However Pew is defeated in the end by Jane destroying a piece of the treasure which gave Pew immortality!

    That's a very generic name that clash directly against the name of the book. That should be why I never found it in the first place

    After countless hours searching, managed to get an entire episode from the series so I was able to rip from it the opening. Expect to see it in Retrojunk soon...
    I can't believe that I made this Thread months ago asking for the opening and end ripping it myself ops:

    Almost one week and the opening still wasn't added. How much time Retrojunk staff usually takes to approve a video?

    Kate00 the show was made in the United Kingdom and NEVER aired in the USA, however the first 13 episodes from Series 1 were edited together to make a 80 minuite film on DVD that was released in the USA.
