Amazon offering old Nick TV Shows via burn-on-demand

Click on the link for the TVshowsondvd.com news article.

I think this is a really good idea, but I don't see many selling at such a high price, although I am thinking about picking up "doug" and "Rocko's Modern Life"...

Well, I'd like to know why Rocko is only in "best-of" format and there's only 2 seasons of Doug and one of Hey Arnold!. What the hell?

Too pricey for burn on demand.

If they were offering all 52 epsiodes of Rocko, I would bite. I have them all DVDr'd from when it aired on Nick Toons TV, I'll stick to that.

Holy crow, I just saw this on tvshowsondvd. The prices aren't that exciting, but if the reviews are good, I might just replace my custom dvds of Doug (edited and cleaned up obsessively from caps off of Nicktoons TV several years ago). Rocko, too...maybe.

Way too pricey. Over $35 for what the blurb mentions "featuring more than 10 episodes of Doug"...way too much.

Yeah, I could justify the price if these were complete seasons.. there with three of the Nickelodeon-era of Doug, I believe.. and three for Rocko. Man that is some shit.

Speaking of Doug, it's been on MTV Tr3s at like 7am during the week. Can't say I was expecting that.

Is there anyway to find a list of other burn-on-demand titles on Amazon? I would have never have found these on my own.

I'm pretty tempted to get Rocko's Modern Life for a few reasons. The first being, this is the one Nickelodeon show that I want on DVD above all else, and I wouldn't hesitate to say that this is my most waned TV Show on DVD period. So there's that. Also, I feel like perhaps if Nickelodeon and Paramount see a decent amount of sales of these shows, it might give them some incentive to release full seasons/series (although I wouldn't hold my breath for that). I'm not happy with this release, but considering this is the best we might can for a long time, I may bite. I still want Doug and Hey Arnold on DVD, but I can't justifying paying $40 for those ones.

Not a bad thing going, but like others said, the price is high. I doubt this will be going away anytime soon, so maybe the prices will drop eventually

I'd be more willing to pay ~$20 each, but i still think the most logical price point would be between $15-20. Considering most of them are either 70 minutes or just under 120 minutes, that's very pricey.
Cut the prices in half then we'll talk

No kidding, I loved that show. I love how non-PC it was, you had the kids talking about dirty magazines and all kinds of stuff that kids actually do talk about. Well, at least, we did....

Same here, I'll probably get some of these to support Nick Toons on DVD, I think once they see how many sales they get they will be more comfortable releasing more of the complete series

I need to say with Rocko's Modern Life...

Hands down, my favorite Nick Toon. One of, if not my ultimate favorite cartoons of the 90s. I've seen all 52 episodes 100 times a piece, and have all of them recorded from Nicktoons Network.

I guarantee these Burn-On-Demand titles, even since it is best-of, will be edited.. even if it's not as hacked as the Ren & Stimpy releases. There's no WAY I can justify these prices unless they would release uncut versions of "The Good, The Bad, and The Wallaby", "Road Rash" (seen below), and include the seldom seen "Leap Frogs".

Joe Murray is trying to get the rights back to release his own set.. so I know if that happens, honestly I'd pay anything.

Here's one of the classic cut scenes..

I'd like to see the Third season of Pete and Pete available, but I like the idea of burn on demand TV available, especially for more obscure cult shows that might not be viable for a large scale commercial release. I think overall it's a step in the right direction, even if the titles aren't ones that interst me at this point and time.

I'd rather wait until a company buys the rights and releases the full set properly. You'd think it'll happen one of these years...

Hopefully they aren't using these to gauge interest for a future real releases.

There is a bunch of stuff in the nickelodeon catalog that I would buy in an instant, but not at those prices for burn on demand stuff. I already have bootlegs of most of it, and those will work for me until there is an official release.
