* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: The ''Busted'' episode that has the actual profanity heard in the original broadcast is nowhere to be seen. It has never been released to DVD or online streaming except in its censored version (apart from on Creator/{{Netflix}}, which somehow had the uncensored version but has since removed the series). Presently, the only way it will show up is if someone recorded it on VCR back in 1984.
