* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Unlikely to be released on DVD, sadly, despite its CultClassic status. However, it's certainly an entertaining way to discuss nightmares/dreams with your children.

''Captain Zed and the Zee Zone'' (1991) is a BritishSeries that is WesternAnimation. A co-production between [[DICEntertainment DIC Entertainment]] (they just animated the show), Collingwood O'Hare Productions (at the time the company was named "Tony Collingwood Productions") and {{HIT Entertainment}} (Back in time, when they distributed and produced not only kids programming, but also even distributed programs from TVNZ outside of New Zealand). It mainly delivers AnAesop to its audience but is known for using NightmareFuel to get the point across sometimes.
