* ''NightCourt'' fits this from Season 4 onward if your DVD player can't play [=DVD-Rs=]. (If yours can, Seasons 4-8 are available through the Warner Archive service. Alternatively, try Encore Classic.) The series spent most of its life as part of their legendary Thursday lineup alongside ''TheCosbyShow'' and ''{{Cheers}}'' and earned John Larroquette four consecutive Emmys for Best Supporting Actor a record that still stands to this day. The problem here is that most of the show's popularity came during the ''middle'' of its run; it didn't come together until Season 3 because of a LOT of early cast changes brought on by actor deaths (Selma Diamond and Florence Halop) and prior contracts (Markie Post appeared as Christine Sullivan in one Season 2 episode, but was still doing ''Series/TheFallGuy'' and couldn't join the cast regularly until Season 3). It's a catch-22: Many of the show's fans don't care for Seasons 1-2 because half the cast they loved isn't present, but the studio won't consider releasing the rest of the series on standard [=DVDs=] until the sales for the first two DVD sets improve.

This came to DVD in 2014, but I don't think I can add it to the Rescued page until after I find out what CBS did to that song.
* ''Series/MorkAndMindy'': A Season 4 episode (more importantly, part of the three-part GrandFinale) has a joke about Mork not leaving the car until he finishes singing along with the last "Na-na-na-na"s of "Hey Jude". That would be no problem on its own, if not for the fact that Mork then enters the room singing said song. Since using songs from Music/TheBeatles catalog is near-impossible these days and the scene wouldn't make sense with the joke dubbed over or cut, it's unknown whether or not Season 4 will ever see the light of day on DVD. So hold on to your recordings...or seek out "''Mork and Mindy'' Season 4" on Website/YouTube. The show was last rerun on Creator/TheHub over 2012-13.

* ''Series/HorribleHistories'', the CBBC live-action series, at least for fans outside of Region 2 DVD coding. Fairly easy to find online, though: besides an official Website/YouTube channel with a good selection of the best sketches (although most of them fall victim to being only available in other countries), full episodes are available for all of Series One & Two, part of Series Three, and the six-part Best-Of version hosted by StephenFry.

* ''Series/ThePractice'' only a saw a release of Season 1 (and nothing else) back in 2007. This is a show that won awards every year it was on, was showcased in ABC's 50th Anniversary Celebration special, aired in the coveted post-Super Bowl spot in 1999 and spun off the highly-successful ''Series/BostonLegal'' (which had all of its seasons released). The status of further DVD releases is unknown.

* ''StElsewhere'': Only Season 1 on DVD, although this is another one that UK folks can enjoy via Channel 4 on Demand. * Seasons 3-6 of ''ThirdWatch'', largely due to music copyright issues.

* Creator/SpikeMilligan's ''Q'' sketch series - ''Q5'' (1969), ''Q6'' (1975), ''Q7'' (1977), ''Q8'' (1978), ''Q9'' (1980), and ''There's a Lot of It About'' (1982) - were cited as a huge influence on ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'' by the members of Creator/MontyPython themselves. Even though at most four of the 38 episodes are lost (all from ''Q5''), the surviving episodes have never been released on DVD, and the most readily available fan copies are variable quality home recordings from Australian broadcasts from between 1979 and 1986 (at a time when Milligan was living and working in Australia).

* ''[[Franchise/WinnieThePooh Welcome to Pooh Corner]]'', one of Disney Channel's first original programs, has had only a handful of VHS releases from the mid-1980s (all out of print and almost impossible to find, at least in good condition) and a Disney-licensed educational DVD with only two episodes available. Outside of that, it's been out of reruns for years and there are no plans for any sort of DVD or digital download, leaving people who want to find non-home-video-released episodes to check their old Disney Channel recordings.

* ''[[Series/FlashForward1996 Flash Forward]]'' (not the 2009 ABC show), which starred a pre-''Series/{{Firefly}}'' and ''SpaceCases'' Jewel Staite and Ben Foster, and featured a few guest appearances from Ryan Gosling. Not only did the Disney Channel stop rerunning episodes around 2001 when ''LizzieMcGuire'' took off, it's nigh impossible to find any clips of it anywhere online. Fortunately, the [[https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLCG__CvNKQT2rloMBY5Cxy5ez0csOnv5U entire show]] is available on YouTube.
