** Luckily regarding at least one of them, the director of ''The Electric Piper'' contacted a fan and mentioned that while he couldn't release it on DVD for legal reasons, he did hope to release it online. The film finally surfaced on the Internet in its entirety on August 9th, 2016.

* ''WesternAnimation/TimothyGoesToSchool'' was first seen on PBS Kids' block "Bookworm Bunch" in 2000 then disappeared after the block ended. It later returned to television in 2006 on [[DiscoveryChannel Discovery Kids]] and {{Creator/TLC}}'s weekday morning block "Ready Set Learn", but only for about a year. The show's most recent appearance was on the Qubo network for a spell. There is no doubt that DVD's are hard to find - good thing there's Website/YouTube (although not all episodes are viewable worldwide; the whole series is only available on [[NoExportForYou Treehouse TV's official channel, and it is blocked outside North America]]).

* ''WesternAnimation/YakkityYak'' had no home media release and for a long time, was super hard to find aside from the occasional Nicktoons rerun VHS recording on YouTube. However, in the mid 2010's, every episode was uploaded to [=KissCartoon=] in master quality (albeit with a small watermark).

* "The Poochie Special" is a half-hour one-off cartoon based on Mattel's then popular mutt Poochie. It went direct-to-video in 1984, and was thought to have never seen the light of day again after all copies disappeared, but someone took the time to upload the whole cartoon in 2015 (though it was previously posted in 3 parts as well).

* ''WesternAnimation/RobotAndMonster'': Reruns air weekdays on Nicktoons while Nick plays the show weekends at 7AM (If they feel like it). It was also a pretty hard to find on the internet outside of Nick.com. Surprisingly, [[http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00I3P8XT4?tag=tvshowsondvdcom&link_code=as3&creativeASIN=B00I3P8XT4&creative the entire series will be released on DVD sometime in 2014.

Added DiffLines:

* The infamous "Yo Yogi!" series. Not a single full episode can be found online, and Warner Archive themselves have stated there are no official plans to release the show.


Added DiffLines:

* As of light, the British-American series "Midnight Patrol: Adventures In The Dream Zone" has yet to be released on DVD in the U.S., and what's worse is that the VHS release (distributed a year after the show ended its short run) is out of print.
*


Added DiffLines:

* "Toxic Crusaders" is still pretty easy to find considering every episode and movie exists online through its 2008 complete series set.
* While it may have only gotten VHS releases, the series "The Adventures Of T-Rex", a Japanese-American co-pro, has all 52 episodes available online thanks to torrents.

* ''WesternAnimation/StarStreetTheAdventuresOfTheStarKids'' saw a limited VHS release in the US in 1989 and 1991 with only 12 episodes released plus an additional tape with the music segments from the series. Some episodes that did not see the light of day in North American releases are available in the UK and Netherlands and show's official page on the Telescreen website has a complete list of episodes. Good luck finding them on the internet though.

** The american ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}'' cartoon, not as widely remembered as the ''Street Fighter'' cartoon but considered equally SoBadItsGood by those who do remember it, was released on DVD by ADV Films and subsequently went into limbo when the company went under. While it currently has yet to be license-rescued, Creator/DiscotekMedia rescuing the ''Street Fighter'' cartoon and ''Darkstalkers'' has aroused hope that they'll eventually give this show the same treatment.

Added DiffLines:

* As far as we know, only a few of the 55 episodes of "The Power Team" (also known as "Acclaim Masters") exist on YouTube as of this posting. The rest might as well be stuck in limbo until someone uploads the show/releases it legally.
* The series "Camp Candy", starring Canadian comedian John Candy, has no official DVD releases. A majority of episodes, however, can be found online.
* There's no known releases of "Kid 'N Play", starring the hip-hop duo of the same name.
* The DVD release of DiC's "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventures" is missing only 5 episodes, cutting the episode number down from 21 to 16. There are chances you can see those five online, though.

* ''A Bunch of Munsch'' was an old Canadian cartoon that based its episodes off children's picture books by beloved author Robert Munsch, and it was also [[DerangedAnimation derangedly animated]]. The show is extremely hard to find, and its extremely rare VHS releases from Golden Book Video fetch a pretty penny. You may have a very scarce chance of finding it in your local library- or perhaps on tapes from when Creator/{{Showtime}} ran it in the US.


Added DiffLines:

* ''A Bunch of Munsch'' was once upon a time very hard to find on home video, having only been released on extremely rare VHS tapes by Golden Book Video and Sony Wonder. All [[ShortRunner 13 episodes]] were eventually released on DVD by Mill Creek in August 2015.
