* ''Cappelli and Company'', a 1993 local show from WTAE in Pittsburgh which got carriage on Nick Jr. for two years, is hard to find, stopped airing reruns after 2003 in Pittsburgh, and it ''[[Main/NoExportForYou hasn't aired outside of the U.S.]]''. Unless you know someone who had a Hearst-owned station where they lived in the 1990s and taped the show off there or Nick Jr. (or have access to the WTAE tape archive), you might be out of luck.

It might as well be ''WesternAnimation/TheBrothersFlub'' of Nick Jr shows.

* The interstitials in CBC's children's programming blocks. Most of them aren't available ''anywhere''. One particularly glaring example is ''Series/GetSetForLife'' (2000-2003). It featured none other than Creator/AlysonCourt as the main host, yet there's barely so much as a mention of it ''online'', and Website/YouTube didn't get any part of it until spring 2015. As of then there's still very little footage circulating anywhere, so if you have a VHS converter, a [=YouTube=] account and any part of the block recorded from its run, get at it!
** A considerably less hard to find official soundtrack album entitled ''Get Set To Sing with Alyson and Michael'' was made in 2002, which will pop up here and there around the thrift store/yard sale circuit and occasionally on sites like eBay.

* Creator/Channel4's cult smash ''As If'' (2001-04) has completely disappeared off the face of the earth, seemingly due to the perennial licensing rights for the soundtrack problem. They'd mostly fixed this issue by the time ''Series/{{Skins}}'' (basically ''As If'' [[ThisIsYourPremiseOnDrugs with younger people and more MDMA, and in Bristol not London]] they still paid just as much attention to the soundtrack, though) happened, although there's still a few tracks where they wonked out (the replacement of Lily Allen's "The Fear" with Katy Perry's "I Kissed A Girl" in Series 3 being the most {{egregious}}).
** Likewise the short-lived CulturalTranslation which aired on {{UPN}}. However in this case the remake was universally reviled and it's ForYourOwnGood that you avoid it in any form.

* Like most talk shows, you only ever see recent episodes of ''Series/TheDailyShow'' and ''Series/TheColbertReport''. The only DVD releases are a compilation of episodes dealing with the 2004 election and a "Best Of" collection, respectively. But every segment (all of them!) is available on their website. [[http://www.thedailyshow.com/watch/tue-february-2-1999/headlines---groundhog-day-1999 Even going back to 1999]]!
** Segments from the Craig Kilborn era are non-existent, either on the website or on DVD. It's likely that the network's OldShame toward this run of the series has kept it from ever resurfacing (aside from brief flashbacks shown on Stewart-era episodes). Comedy Central's website [[UnPerson doesn't even acknowledge Kilborn's stint at all]]. On a episode of ''The Late Show with Stephen Colbert'' where Colbert reunited his fellow correspondents, Stewart noted Colbert was on the show before him with Kilborn. Colbert noted the tapes of that era are impossible to find, and went on to say that there is no proof the ''Daily Show'' existed before Jon Stewart became the host.

* ''Emergency Vets'' was a popular reality/medical series on Creator/AnimalPlanet that ran from 1998 to 2002 with a follow-up episode in 2005 and a special in 2006. There has never been official video/DVD release of any of it. Very few full episodes exist online.
** Later, a spin-off show, ''E-Vet Interns'', started airing in 2007. It lasted more than a whole season, with only three episodes made in the second season before production stopped. It hasn't been released either.

A series of Sony Wonder tapes with themes (i.e. "Clarissa Explains Dating") were released in the 90s, and most have been uploaded to YouTube.

* After the demise of Nick [=GaS=], most of Nickelodeon's GameShow library from the late 1980s and early 1990s has vanished from the airwaves and can only be seen on Website/YouTube. Affected shows include ''[[Series/DoubleDare1986 Double Dare]]'' (original and ''Super Sloppy'' editions), ''Series/FindersKeepers''[[note]] many episodes of the first series of which were not even broadcast on Nick [=GaS=][[/note]], ''Series/ThinkFast'', ''Series/MakeTheGrade'', ''Series/GetThePicture'', and ''Series/NickArcade''[[note]] of which almost a quarter of the run were never rerun on Nick [=GaS=][[/note]]. A few shows from the mid to late 1990s, such as ''Family Double Dare'', ''Series/NickelodeonGuts'', ''Series/LegendsOfTheHiddenTemple'', and ''Series/FigureItOut'', have briefly re-surfaced on Creator/TeenNick's ''The '90s Are All That'' block. A few select episodes are also available for purchase on iTunes, including 11 episodes of the ultra-rare Fox ''Family Double Dare''.
** iTunes also has a few episodes of the 1987 version of ''Super Sloppy Double Dare'' and Nick Arcade. In 2015, Nickelodeon also released a DVD containing one or two episodes each of both ''Super Sloppy'' and ''Family Double Dare'', ''Legends'', ''Figure It Out'', ''Guts'' and ''Nick Arcade''. Reruns of the original edition of ''Double Dare'' returned to TV on ''The '90s Are All That'''s successor block, ''The Splat'', along with all game shows that had aired on the previous block. Clips from ''Wild and Crazy Kids'' and ''Nick Arcade'' were featured in a game show-themed promo launched before ''The Splat'' premiered, but have yet to air on the block.
* ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Just_for_Kicks_(TV_series) Just for Kicks]]'', probably the most short-lived and rarest Nickelodeon TV show to ever hit the airwaves.

* ''Series/BillNyeTheScienceGuy'' continues to be a much-beloved science show that is still played in classrooms across the world, yet it has never received a proper commercial DVD release. Nye's own website doesn't sell it, there are only a few (overpriced) single episodes being sold through the official Disney store, and the first two seasons have been released in outrageously expensive sets that are only sold to schools and educators (and, on average, cost over ''$1,500'' - yes, you read that right). However, this is somewhat mollified by the massive VHS release that proceeded it (which had all the episodes), which can be found in classrooms getting rid of their old tapes. In addition, there are certain websites that only teachers can access to watch episodes, if it helps.
** As of May 2015, it is now available on {{Netflix}}.

* ''Series/LambChopsPlayAlong'' is in a music rights nightmare, which explains the lack of ''any'' DVD releases. During its PBS run, however, select segments of the series were released on home video by [=A&M=] Video, but never any complete episodes, and said VHS tapes are now rare to come across. Episodes still air on Kids and Teens TV, but one has to hope [=NBCU=] has the money to secure all the song rights for a proper DVD release.
** Its short-lived spin-off, ''The Music/CharlieHorseMusicPizza'', suffers a similar fate. Not only has the series not been seen since the closure of the PBJ network in 2016, but only five VHS releases exist, containing 5 segments each. These sets are hard to come across even on eBay.

* Many classic ''Series/SesameStreet'' segments can be found online and on compilation DVD's. However, only 21 complete (or at least [[EditedForSyndication near-complete]]) episodes from 1989 on back have been officially released on DVD or digitally, including a test pilot.

** Also, the episode with the [[Film/TheWizardOfOz Wicked Witch of the West]], originally aired in February 1976, is very hard to find due to airing only once. [[note]](The episode sees The Wicked Witch (Margaret Hamilton, reprising her role from the 1939 MGM movie) crash-landing her brook on Sesame Street, David finding the brook and deciding to keep it, and the Witch threatening David if he doesn't give it back. Other scenes featured the Witch interacting with Oscar the Grouch and Big Bird.)[[/note]] After overwhelmingly negative reaction to the episode -- many parents complained that their children were frightened by the witch's behavior and threats and were now afraid to watch the show -- the show was not reaired during the show's summer 1976 rerun cycle, and not even so much as brief clips have been seen anywhere since. Additionally, as the home video recording industry was in its infancy in 1976, original off-air copies of the episode are likely very difficult to nearly impossible to find.

* ''Series/SquareOneTV''. The series has not been re-run since the early 2000s (and even then, only 65 of the 230 episodes were re-run), and there are currently no DVD releases planned. Domestic recordings are known to exist of many episodes, and they sometimes show up on YouTube, but they are nowhere near exhaustive, and quality varies widely.
** One segment of ''Square One'' that has generated its own separate demand for release is the police spoof ''Mathnet'', which featured big-name guest stars and storylines that appealed to adults so much, that PBS at one point edited together one Mathnet storyline into a made-for-TV movie that aired in prime time.

* When the archive of ''[[Series/SiskelAndEbert Siskel & Ebert & the Movies]]'' was made available online in the mid-2000s, Creator/RogerEbert said that as far as he knew, the master tapes of his and Creator/GeneSiskel's first two series, ''Opening Soon at a Theater Near You''/''Sneak Previews'' (1975-82) on PBS and the syndicated ''At the Movies'' (1982-86), had mostly been wiped. Fortunately, not only did some master tapes escape destruction, but off-air recordings have since been found of hundreds of other episodes. That said, the collection is nowhere near exhaustive (particularly for the original 1975-77 incarnation of ''Opening Soon at a Theater Near You''), and the quality varies considerably. Most of the episodes that do circulate can be watched online for free at [[http://siskelandebert.org/ Siskel & Ebert.org]].

* Only Season 1 (Series 1 & 2) and Season 2 (Series 3 & 4) of ''Series/LawAndOrderUK'' have been released on DVD in the US. To watch the remaining episodes, which have been released in the UK, anyone in Region 1 will need to either (a) purchase a universal DVD player, or (b) scour the internet. Luckily, Series 5-8 are readily available, which is very good as season 8 has never even be aired on BBC America.

* Disney is notorious for not releasing complete-season sets of recent shows. For example, ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible''. And in some cases - again using ''Kim Possible'' as an example - the episodes released have been edited together. ''Kim Possible'' eventually achieved full-season releases... three years after the series ended, when no one cared about it anymore. ''Series/HannahMontana'' is another example: to date, Disney has only released the first and fourth seasons as sets in North America, along with compilations of scattered episodes.
** As of 2014, the six missing episodes of ''KP'' have been added to iTunes, with seasons 2-4 being in HD. This leads to a ''Film/MenInBlack''-style "[[UpdatedRerelease Guess I'll have to buy the "White Album" again]]" dilemma for fans who already bought the SD versions.

** Similarly, 1987's ''AMuppetFamilyChristmas'' lost several songs for its video releases due to music rights issues. Later editions also edited out two scenes: one of Fozzie and Elmo turning on the Christmas tree, and the other when Fozzie talks to his mother about hanging stockings. To this day, the uncut version of the special remains a hot ticket on Website/YouTube and in tape-trading circles (''especially'' with the original commercials) when the holidays roll around.
