That was until August 2011, when somebody asked about it on {{Website/Reddit}} and a user by the name of "firesaladpeach" claimed to have recorded it on VHS. The Redditors got it up and streaming on Website/YouTube, confirming that yes, ''Cry Baby Lane'' existed. The attention drawing from this lead to [=TeenNick=] re-airing the film once again as part of The90sAreAllThat block. It was soon taken off of Website/YouTube, but has been put back up by multiple people to ensure it doesn't once again become a [[MissingEpisode lost film]].
