The cartoon Kidd Video will never be on DVD or Blu Ray, who will save it?

If you don’t know what I talkin’ about here’s a short description:

The title sequence explained the plot; Kidd Video and his band of the same name were kidnapped by a villain named Master Blaster, and transported to Master Blaster’s home dimension, a cartoon world called The Flipside. The show was dominated by an MTV-esque, music video theme and each episode featured at least one action sequence set to a popular song.

The problem is the music rights.
They will never release the 27 episodes so who will save this great '80s time capsule?

PS: There’s a great website: http://www.kvflipside.org/ but the last update on facebook is 2014…

I’ve never heard of this, but it looks amazingly 80’s.

EDIT: Just checked, and it’s already been done on you-know-where, if you have access. The episodes also appear to be all up on the site you posted, as well.

That’s true, however the original uploader of that torrent did promise a upgrade in quote “many months from now” back in 2011, so that makes me wonder whatever happened?

I know-where but it doesn’t work anymore…
Yes it’s amazingly ‘80s as everythin’ I love.
Let’s not forget this great cartoon!

I have a Spanish dub of the show saved, in very high quality with all the music videos and music cues intact.

I appear to have found these; they have a couple of issues. For one, they are sped up to PAL, so they have a noticeable pitch shift in the original files, as well as some minor combing in other scenes. Still, great to use as reference, and once those problems are addressed they could be a definite improvement.

Things are in the works on this. Expect more news soon…
