* Fox's ''WesternAnimation/PeterPanAndThePirates''. Despite it being one of the (if not ''the'') most faithful adaptions of the original play/story, not to mention being a show TimCurry won an award for, there is no box set yet — because it probably was just not considered financially viable. But you can preorder it from Amazon UK. Which will be selling it in [[http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00122M2CE January 2020.]] ''Five years from now.'' There is also the slight matter of Disney having bought the show after buying out Fox Kids and selling the series to Creator/TMSEntertainment.

* The television special ''Daffy Duck and Porky Pig Meet the Groovie Goolies'' was a crossover between the WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes and the short-lived [[WesternAnimation/SabrinaAndTheGroovieGoolies latter series]] on Creator/{{CBS}}, and is noted for being the only time Creator/WarnerBros ever loaned out the Looney Tunes to another studio, in this case Creator/{{Filmation}} (whose archives are now owned by [=NBCUniversal=] through Creator/DreamWorksAnimation). The special aired only once on Creator/{{ABC}} in 1972, then was never seen again after that, for [[ScrewedByTheLawyers obvious reasons]]. The only official home video release [[NoExportForYou was in the United Kingdom]] in the 1980's, and it's nigh-impossible to find.

The only way anyone can find a trace of this special is through kinescope prints, either online or through physical means. It's unknown whether or not the original masters of the special even exist anymore.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kissyfur}}'', a Saturday morning cartoon that was one of NBC's headliners of the block's 1980's era, only has a handful of VHS tapes from the 80's, and chances are you won't find them easily. No [=DVD=]s, digital streaming, reruns, nothing. The fact that NBC has to jointly own the series with DHX Media (legal successors to co-producer [=DiC=] Entertainment) and Disney (current owners of co-producer Creator/SabanEntertainment property) doesn't help matters.

* Nicktoons TV (or Nicktoons Network as it is now known) once had a slew of original cartoon programming that all seemed produced at a portion of the budget of a regular Nicktoon, and they are ''all unavailable from DVD releases in their entirety''. ''WesternAnimation/KappaMikey'' and ''[[WesternAnimation/WatchMyChops Corneil and Bernie]]'' ("Watch My Chops" in regions outside North America) had a few episodes released, but both series have never had complete releases (as in, all episodes).

* ''The Adventures of WesternAnimation/SamAndMaxFreelancePolice'' hardly saw daylight after its initial 13-episode run. It wasn't until the popularity of TelltaleGames's [[VideoGame/SamAndMaxFreelancePolice Sam and Max games]] that it was able to get a release through Shout! and many new fans were able to experience the show for the first time.

** ''Roland and Rattfink'' was released on DVD, but only as part of a multi-disc set that includes the Panther, ''WesternAnimation/TheInspector'', and ''TheAntAndTheAardvark''.

** Fortunately, as of June 2016, ''Stickin' Around'' is now broadcast on Creator/{{Qubo}} in the United States… if you're lucky to get the ION subchannel or have Qubo on your cable lineup.

** ''WesternAnimation/ExoSquad'' ran for two seasons, of which only the first one (one-third the length of the second) was officially released on VHS and DVD. [=IMDb=] has cover arts of "second season VHS", but these are merely bootlegs. So it's either them...or [=BitTorrent=].
*** Both seasons were available legally for streaming on Hulu for a year or two, but a fresh dispute over the rights soon resulted in it being off Hulu and back to bootlegs.

** ''WesternAnimation/SittingDucks'' is an odd case. In the United States, you have the option of buying a complete set of the series' first season on DVD, or VHS volumes of the episodes of said season. In the United Kingdom, however, you can get the volumes on both VHS ''and'' DVD, but no DVD set of the entire first season, which is very unusual given how popular the series was in Europe. As for the second season, don't bother trying to look for that.
