Binyah Binyah (partially found Nick Jr. puppet TV series; 1997-1998)
|The show's title card.|
Somewhere between eight and thirteen episodes were recorded between July and August of 1997, and only five episodes aired on Nick Jr. during its only TV run, February 2-6, 1998. The series was named after the main character of the original show, Binyah Binyah the Polliwog. Nickelodeon decided to pass on the series, and it never aired again.
There was no home media release for Binyah Binyah due to how briefly it ran, and thus, bootleg copies are hard to come by.
Supposedly puppeteer Rick Lyon was asked about the series. He claimed that only the 5 aired episodes ever existed in full form while the rest were never finished. He allegedly had a copy of the 5 episodes on VHS, but the tape deteriorated over time.
Of the five aired episodes, two episodes resurfaced in May 2017, being made publicly available by Lost Media Wiki contributor CDCB2 and DJ Bob. Episode 4 – found in its entirety – is available here, while Episode 5 – with a couple of seconds missing after the intro – is available here. The first three episodes remain unresurfaced as of May 2017.
