* ''WesternAnimation/DonkeyKongCountry'' had a VHS release of the pilot and two other episodes courtesy of Paramount, but the rest of the series never made it to VHS or DVD in the U.S. Both seasons were released on DVD in Australia. The first season eventually made its way to DVD in 2015, but that still leaves the second season unavailable on DVD, and can be viewed in its entirety on iTunes and on Nelvana's Retro Rerun [=YouTube=] channel.
* ''WesternAnimation/StickinAround'' had some VHS releases in both the U.S. and Canada courtesy of Cinepix Film Properties, but it only saw a DVD release in Australia, with the VHS releases going out of print when [=CFP=] became Creator/{{Lionsgate}}.

* ''WesternAnimation/NedsNewt'' saw some VHS releases in the late 90s, and that's it. In America, the series was last seen on Qubo in 2018.

Added DiffLines:

* Most of ''WesternAnimation/NoddysToylandAdventures'' was released on VHS, but only "Noddy Lends A Hand", "Noddy Meets Some Silly Hens" and "Noddy and His Unhappy Car" were released to DVD, but the catch was that said DVD was actually one for ''Series/TheNoddyShop'', which split the episodes in half. Starting in 2017, the official Noddy [=YouTube=] began to upload episodes in a random order, beginning with "Noddy Meets Some Silly Hens".


* Many of the Creator/RankinBass animated shows and specials are not available on DVD, but only as grainy, fading VHS tapes made years ago. They will be lost forever when the tapes inevitably wear out and [=VCRs=] break -- most notably, ''WesternAnimation/WindInTheWillows'' (the one with the [[EarWorm theme song]] sung by Music/JudyCollins).

(The good news is that, along with feature-length films like ''WesternAnimation/MadMonsterParty'', ''WesternAnimation/TheDaydreamer'', and ''WesternAnimation/TheFlightOfDragons'', most of the company's famous Christmas specials '''are''' on DVD as stand-alone releases or in collections, as are their three Easter specials from TheSeventies.)

* ''WesternAnimation/HiHiPuffyAmiYumi''. [=YouTube=] is, once again, your only bet with this one. There were two home video releases in the mid-2000s, but that was it. Back then, the show had received hefty criticism, due to the big AnimationAgeGhetto blowups that plagued that time, but as years passed, the hate has softened significantly. The only official release is [[NoExportForYou a DVD release from Thailand]] that comes with a English audio track, and even then it only covers the first 2 seasons.
