Weird-Oh's (Partially Lost Animated Series; 1999)


Weird-Oh's! (Partially Lost Animated Series)
Status Partially Lost

Weird-Oh's was a short-lived animated series about wacky characters having adventures in a town called "Weirdsville". The main characters are Digger, Wade and Eddie. Based off the 1960s Weird-Oh's toys, the series only had 13 episodes (26 segments). Its home release consisted of 3 VHS tapes, 1 DVD release and 1 unaired pilot. (The only footage from the pilot being the tank sequence seen on the right.)

It debuted on Fox Kids in 1999 but was cancelled due to poor ratings and brought back in 2000 on YTV in Canada in reruns. In 2000, ADV released the whole series (excluding the unaired pilot) in 3 cassettes titled "Lights, Camera, Traction", "Wheel Trouble", and "Traffic Jam". YTV released the whole series onto DVD in 2005. To this day all releases of this show are extremely rare, as due to limited production only 500 copies of each release were sent out into the Canadian market.

As of April 2016, the series is now partially found. YouTuber BlameItOnJorge, in his video 10 Updated Pieces of Lost Media profiled a YouTube channel (Jack Mann) that has 16 episodes (almost the entire series) available for viewing. Only the second segment (Black-Eyed Babysitters) and the twenty-sixth segment (Beach Blanket Traffic Jam) remain unaccounted for (on YouTube at least).

The episode "beach blanket traffic jam" has not been released yet, making weird-ohs technically "partially found". However, the owner of the YouTube YouTube account SOAWAT25 (www.youtube.com/user/SOAWAT25) has the video, and for one reason or another, has not uploaded the episode, and stopped uploading 7 or so months ago. If there is no luck getting the episode off of him, try talking to Jack Mann (https://www....ersist_app=1)

Remember, the episode is called BEACH BLANKET TRAFFIC JAM

I used to watch this too. Since I didn't really like this show, I never recorded it.
