* ''TwentyOneJumpStreet'': This ''was'' actually released in its entirety on DVD, but people (mostly, those who had watched its original run in the late '80s) felt cheated that it didn't feature the original soundtrack, and complained a lot about that online. (The series was pretty iconic for featuring lots of music by artists then-and-still-now famous, or of artists that later became famous; apparently because getting Copyright to put this on DVD was deemed too expensive to the producers, this was all replaced by muzak and music by little-known artists). Which led to people exchanging DVD's with the much-sought-after original score (with probably much worse video quality, since these were originally 20-year-old VHS's converted to DVD format; this only shows how much the music in this series is / was coveted). [[note]]The ''German'' edition, and only that one, of the DVD's - available most easily through Amazon.de - feature the original music though.[[/note]]

* ''[[Series/FullColorFootball Full Color Football: The History of The American Football League'', a five part {{Showtime}}/NFL Films produced documentary, has yet to be released on DVD (though the NFL Network runs the occasional rerun). WarnerBrothers owns the rights, but seems to be sitting on the title despite strong fan demand.

* Australian company Shock Entertainment are bucking the trend by actually beginning to put ''{{Neighbours}}'' to DVD - this started with the "Defining Moments" collection in 2002 - fifteen episodes of births, deaths and weddings, from 1986 to 2002 - followed by two "Iconic Episodes" collections of at least 22 episodes each and minimal overlap with the earlier collection. However, on April 4, 2012 Shock released "''Neighbours'': From the Beginning Vol 1" which comprises the first 56 episodes (of over 7,500 to date). Three more ''From the Beginning'' volumes of similar length followed, as well as "The Charlene Years, Volume 1" (which helpfully followed on from the then-unreleased "From the Beginning Volume 4". There have been no further box sets released since 2013, but that still amounts to 295 episodes from 1985-1986.

* ''MisterRogersNeighborhood'': Episodes from the show's first run (1968-76) have not aired on PBS since 1995. They were taken out of the rotation because, by then, there were a year's worth of episodes from the second run (1979-2001) in the can. It was also said that these episodes could confuse children since they looked different and had some different characters (although the 1974-76 episodes were more similar to the later ones).

{{Game Show}}s pretty much across the board. With {{GSN}} constantly moving away (and back, and away again, and...) from showing the "classics", it's become increasingly hard to find episodes of even iconic shows such as ''WheelOfFortune'', ''FamilyFeud'', ''{{Jeopardy}}'', and ''{{Pyramid}}''. And this isn't even getting into the countless series that have been wiped, or those that simply haven't been transferred to a digital format for preservation (such as some of the holdings at the Library of Congress). Fox's new Buzzr channel with Fremantle which started in June 2015 offers some slight hope that these shows might be seen again.

** ''Cappelli and Company'', a 1993 local show from WTAE in Pittsburgh which got carriage on Nick Jr. for two years, is also 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 station in the 1990s and taped the show off their or Nick Jr. (or have access to the WTAE tape archive), you might be out of luck.
