Quote from: DeCarlo Rules on August 24, 2016, 09:48:33 pmWhy would you expect the documenting and indexing of these shows to be any better than the comics?

Quote from: DeCarlo Rules on August 24, 2016, 09:48:33 pmArchie's Funhouse is on DVD, so I don't know what needs explaining.Plenty, since, according to Wikipedia, there are missing episodes and missing/lost footage:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Archie_Show#Home_releaseQuote from: DeCarlo Rules on August 24, 2016, 09:48:33 pmWhy would you expect the documenting and indexing of these shows to be any better than the comics?Probably because there's far less of them.I'm compiling an episode list of all of the Filmation episodes, and I want to make sure that I have all of them.Wikipedia says "The U.S. of Archie" aired repeats until September of 1976, but "The New Archie and Sabrina Hour" didn't premiere until September 10, 1977. Did any Archie cartoons air in the 1976-1977 season?
Quote from: Ottawagrant on August 26, 2016, 07:34:37 pmJust want to add to this: TV shows from this era, once they enter syndication, get messy. For exampe: Total Television's 'Underdog', 'Tennessee Tuxedo & His tales' & 'King Leonardo & his short Subjects'. I have 2 x 16mm copies of Network Prints, with original commercials, of 'Tennessee Tuxedo'. I know they're not original run prints because each contain a 'Commander McBragg' episode & a 'King Leonardo' short'. Plus the General Mills commercials are with 'Rocky & Bullwinkle', a Jay Ward Production. When you watch the 1/2 hour prints on the DVD set of 'Archie's Funhouse' watch the 'Giant Jukebox' parts. Some episodes have 1, some 3. As mentioned above, in their original hour run they each contained 2 x Sabrina cartoons. There is a push on the get 'Underdog' restored to its original NBC run. The DVD sets, while nice to have, are nothing like the original run. Tennesse Tuxedo is worse! They used the original cartoon opening credits, with a different theme song! The Horror! Quick trivia note: The voice of Commander McBragg is veteran Radio voice 'Kenny Delmar'. Kenny Delmar was famous on the 'Fred Allen Show' as a character known as Senator Beauregard Claghorn. Warner Brothers copied the voice as 'Foghorn Leghorn' & then tried to sue Delmar for copywrite infringement. They lost. Well (As Fred Allen used to say) let's head down Allen's Alley & see who we meet. . .
