* TheArtifact: "[[http://www.platypuscomix.net/kidzone/comingtodvdnever.html Why you may never see some of your favorite childhood shows on DVD]]", a list of shows whose fans need to KeepCirculatingTheTapes, has some comments regarding Creator/FoxKids shows that stayed up for several years after some corporate exchanges, between Creator/{{Disney}}[[note]]who, according to the page, acquired a significant portion of Fox Kids' library while purchasing the [[Creator/ABCFamily Fox Family Channel]][[/note]] and such studios as Creator/ShoutFactory and Creator/MillCreekEntertainment, rendered them obsolete. For instance, the article ends with the lament, "It's a real tragedy moments like 'Fish Don't Stink' can't be legally bought," followed by a link to the ''WesternAnimation/BobbysWorld'' [[http://www.platypuscomix.net/downloads/fishdontstink.html clip]]. Amazon started selling official ''Bobby's World'' DVD boxsets in 2012, but this ending remained.

* TimeMarchesOn: "[[http://www.platypuscomix.net/kidzone/comingtodvdnever.html Why you may never see some of your favorite childhood shows on DVD]]" originally included ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'' among the shows whose fans needed to KeepCirculatingTheTapes. After Time Life went and released ''all'' the episodes on DVD, Nicktoons and ''WesternAnimation/ReBoot'' took its spot on the list. Later, Shout! Factory managed to release [=DVDs=] of ''those'', so they got removed from Peter's article, later replaced by ''WesternAnimation/KaBlam''. Ironically, the Creator/FoxKids section hasn't received an update since 2010.

-->I'm in a bit of disbelief that it bears the Filmation label, given that the one nice thing I can say about Sabrina's first TV appearance is that it's decently animated for [[TheSixties 1969]]. At no point is anybody [[LimitedAnimation standing still with dead eyes and their mouth moving]], there are no really long pans of static backgrounds, and [[StockFootage only one shot is reused]] (the image of Reggie in the Nixon pose). Everyone displays a variety of vivid facial expressions. Normally Filmation had a Moose-level ineptitude about these things.

* JustEatGilligan: Peter admits wishing in "[[http://www.platypuscomix.net/otherpeople/libbyspineapple.html Sabrinas Through Time III]]" that after Sabrina accidentally turned the AlphaBitch Libby into a pineapple, she and her aunts ate Libby, instead of turned her back to normal.[[note]][[RedundantParody Aunt Zelda made the same suggestion]] in a gag missing from Peter's recording.[[/note]]

* {{Irony}}: In "[[http://www.platypuscomix.net/otherpeople/youlllikepals.html Sabrinas Through Time II]]", Peter calls ComicBook/{{Sabrina| The Teenage Witch}}'s then-latest animated show, ''WesternAnimation/SabrinaSecretsOfATeenageWitch'', "badly-animated" by TheNewTens standards. A reader might expect her first cartoon appearance, the Creator/{{Filmation}} TV special ''Archie and His New Pals'', to have even worse visuals. Surprisingly, Peter ends the article by noting the special had a noticeable AnimationBump compared to the studio's other work. A clip he embedded of the musical number "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X0NQD0vl2_w You Need an Image]]" (which he acknowledges as an EarWorm) illustrates this.
