Those of us who watched Nickelodeon in the early days around 1980 may remember this show. Apparently, it was released on DVD in the UK a couple of months ago. The good news is that it is encoded region 0, so it can play anywhere, the downside is you cannot order it on amazon.com. It is only available on amazon.co.uk (or whatever it is).

Does anybody remember this show and know of a US retailer?

I remember the show. It wasn't too bad for a Nick show. It came out when You Can't Do That On Television was still on the air.

I used to use www.hmv.com (http://www.hmv.com) to get import stuff. It was a CD retailer in Canada and I was able to get stuff like Erasure EBX CD's when they weren't available in the states. However, they've been eaten up by amazon.com and now don't seem to have the import stuff anymore.

Guest Starring DAVE PROWSE!! The show has made to Netflix, and I have been watching the old shows. It is really trippy to watch something you have been totally sequestered from for 20 years. There are parts I remember vividly, parts I only have a foggy image of, parts I recollect now that I have seen them again, and things I have absolutely no recollection of at all!

If you didn't love it as a kid, you probably won't like it now, but the second disk stars a very young Dave Prowse as a totally ripped android. That dude is huge. Anyway, there's your trivia for today.
