    Time to create a thread bump.

    Something I discovered recently, was there was a Super Mario Bros. movie without an Englishman and Latino playing Italians. It was an anime film made in 1986, entitled Super Mario Bros.: The Great Mission to Rescue Princess Peach! that not only was released only in Japan, but it was VHS-only, and even then copies are extremely rare. From what I've seen online, it's very...surreal. That's all I can really say, to be frank.

    Speaking of that, there was a TMNT anime OVA as well. Unlike Mario, I've actually seen this. It's... bizarre.

    Oggy and the Cockroaches is out of the graveyard. It's on Netflix now.

    I think Ned's Newt was at one point, but if it was, it's gone now.

    Though I don't use Netflix at all, it's nice to hear they've got them right now, I hope it's the entire series as well since we Americans missed out beyond the first season when it aired 15 years back on Fox Family.

    From what I've seen, it was popular in Taiwan as well, DVD's of the show were released over there.

    Remember when I talked about Space Hip Hop Duck?
    I found an archived version of the official website.

    I have to give credit to POP though for being an archive channel for old cartoons.

    Home Movies is still on Netflix, and is being rotated on and off [adult swim].

    Cubix is on Hulu. I think Pingu is on Netflix too.

    The only ones I've seen on an actual television:
    Angela Anaconda
    The Raccoons
    Budgie the Little Helicopter
    Henry's Cat
    Cubix
    Babar
    Pingu
    Spider
    I'm unsure about Budgie, if my memory doesn't cheat, it aired on TVI and it had the host from Batatoon voicing one of the characters.

    The PJ's DVDs appear to still be in print, I just checked Amazon. (They only appear to have been released a few years ago.)

    Ozzy and Drix was on KidsWB.com at one point. I don't see it there currently, but I'm sure they'll rotate it back.

    Dilbert also has in-print DVDs as well as being available on Amazon, iTunes, Hulu, Crackle, and Netflix.

    Rupert is also on Amazon Video for purchase. I know it was airing on the 24/7 qubo network, but I don't know if it's there currently. EDIT: It's not, but it's also on iTunes.

    [MENTION=7341]DonkeyKongSong[/MENTION]: I don't live in America, there are some shows on my list that probably never aired in the United States. I did watch Dilbert on Crackle, it originally aired on Sky One and then on Ftn in 2003.

    Yeah, I haven't heard of a lot of those. I just looked at the ones that I knew had been available recently or probably wouldn't stay buried forever (I had remembered seeing Rupert on qubo and O&D on KidsWB.com, and it was just an instinct for The PJ's and Dilbert). That said, if we're going global, I think The Proud Family might be on the Family Channel in Canada, they do air a lot of old Disney Channel shows. I'll check.

    EDIT: Darn, can't access that site at all from the US anymore.

    Anyone else heard of this veeeery obscure Malaysian cartoon called Kampung Boy? I do remember seeing a few scenes of it.

    Many old DC cartoons aren't available in Flanders... We don't have Netflix, there are only a few Dutch dvd releases and most of them won't return to television. (Because nowadays every tv broadcaster (except 2BE) wants to air cartoons with Dutch dubbings and only 4 DC shows (the new ones) got a Dutch dub, the other ones aired in English with subtitles)

    And Teen Titans and Justice League Unlimited never aired over here. :/ (They did air in the Netherlands)

    We can still watch the old Marvel shows on 2BE (and they aren't dubbed!), but those shows are mostly pretty bad.
    I wish they started aired airing DC cartoons...

    Would Road Rovers, Histeria, and/or Detention join the list?

    Never heard about the first one, but I've already heard about the other ones.
    Histeria's European Portuguese dub was unearthed by RTP last year and it aired on RTP √Āfrica.
