* The original Sony releases of seasons 3-11 of ''Series/MarriedWithChildren'' were released on DVD with the theme song, FrankSinatra's ''Love and Marriage'', replaced with more generic music due to rights issues (the first two seasons retained them). In addition, some episodes were edited, whether (in the case of the fourth season, at least) due to the presence of the song, or being a two-parter cut into two episodes, etc. When Mill Creek acquired the rights in 2013, they were able to get the rights to the song back, and were able to use unedited versions of most, though not all, of these episodes.

* The Creator/FrankSinatra film ''Meet Danny Wilson'' has yet to be released on DVD in the United States. However, the movie was released on VHS and isn't too difficult to find. It was given a DVD release, [[NoExportForYou but only in the UK]].

* ''BillNyeTheScienceGuy'' is now available on a number of [=DVD=]s, but as they are classroom-licensed releases they cost [[CrackIsCheaper $25 or $30]] for ''one'' thirty-minute episode. Those looking to save money ought to check their public library for these. Thirty or so episodes have also been added to Netflix.

* After its unfortunate initial performance in 1995, ''VideoGame/EarthBound'' saw no re-release in America for nearly two decades, not even on the UsefulNotes/VirtualConsole. Its Masterpiece demo in the Japanese version of ''[[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Super Smash Bros. Brawl]]'', and its appearance in a Nintendo Direct press release regarding the WiiU Virtual Console (losing its position to - of all games - ''VideoGame/PunchOut Featuring Mr. Dream''), were even explicitly removed from international versions! Rumors abound as to why this was this was the case, the most common ones involving legal issues over [[{{Sampling}} its music]], but nothing was ever confirmed by Nintendo and plenty of arguments against those theories surfaced too. [[note]]The real reason for it being kept from a Western re-release for so long was actually due to concerns involving its frequent use of flashing and flickering effects, which had to be blurred in the Virtual Console release[[/note]] At any rate, it became very rare to find someone who actually played the game on a console rather than just emulating it. Being a very famous game, during the years where it was difficult to find, it was selling for anywhere between $80 and ''[[CrackIsCheaper $200]]'', making it a true standout. Finally, after plenty of patience and plenty of waiting, Nintendo at last announced its release for the Wii U Virtual Console, later making good on their promise in July 2013. There is still no word on its sequel, but this is certainly a step in the right direction.

* ''Film/FourteenNinetyTwoConquestOfParadise'': Despite being helmed by Creator/RidleyScott, scored by [[Film/BladeRunner Vangelis]] and starring a very well-rounded cast (including Creator/GerardDepardieu, Sigourney Weaver and Frank Langella), it's still unclear why this 1992 film hasn't been released stateside. While official versions have been released in France (along with scores of unofficial bootlegs that come from Asia), the film hasn't been released since it appeared on laserdisc more than a decade-and-a-half ago. Rumors suggest that there was a planned "Special Edition" release back in 2004, but those plans were apparently scuttled at the last minute. There have been several reasons bandied about for the delay: that the film is OldShame for Scott, the film's failure at the U.S. box office, claims of misrepresentation about Columbus' chronicled actions when he landed at the New World and the claim that a special 3-hour director's cut is being worked on. This one is less painful than most, because you ''can'' find it on Netflix, but good luck trying to source a physical copy with a decent transfer. Things finally changed in August 2016 when it was announced that the film will make its long-awaited DVD and Blu-ray debut from Kino Lorber later in the year or early 2017.

* ''Series/TheHollywoodSquares'' is a rather unusual case. People thought the classic Peter Marshall era was gone, victims of Creator/{{NBC}}'s wiping practices of the era (many other game shows suffered too); the only remnants known to be left were some scattered daytime and syndicated episodes on the trading circuit; the latter in particular. But in 2001, a search through an old LA-area warehouse (in an attempt to find the missing episodes of ''Series/DarkShadows'') found the motherlode- a staggering amount of Marshall episodes, estimated to be between 650 and ''3,000''. However, Creator/{{GSN}} only reran some of those eps from 2002 to 2003- and even then, it was mainly of the 1971-77 syndicated run (along with some of the 1968 primetime run, and ''one'' daytime episode, specifically one of the oddball ''Storybook Squares''- weeks where children and families would play the game, and the celebrities would be in costume as various historical or fairytale figures).

* ''ParkerLewisCantLose'' took its sweet time to move onto DVD, mostly due to music licensing issues, but it's out now.
