Disney's Teacher's Pet was an American animated series that aired on ABC's One Saturday Morning block from September 9, 2000 to February 9, 2002 (The first 1/3 of the Second Season aired on ABC) and the remaining season Two episodes had aired on Toon Disney from January 11, 2002 to May 10, 2002.
After a bit of delay with dates ranging from September 2003 to February 2004, a theatrical movie finale was finally released on January 16th, 2004 to box-office failure due to barely being promoted outside of the main Disney stations. Despite this, the movie has been critically acclaimed.
While the show was popular in it's hey-day, the show went into obscurity since Toon Disney stopped running reruns in June 2006. Besides the first episode being released on the movie DVD, no other episodes were ever released in any other format.
Between Late 2008 and June 2013, VHS recordings were uploaded to YouTube until Disney took them all down due to copyright. Since September 2013, many of them (despite being in low quality at the time) had been uploaded to a special Facebook page. A Dailymotion page has also been hosting episodes since March 2014.
As of January 2015, Twenty Nine full episodes have been found. Eleven episodes have been found in Russian, including a few that have been missing in English (Like "Attack Of The 50 Inch Girl" and "The Blight Before Christmas"), and one in Greek ("Never Take Candy From A Kindergartner").
UPDATE 1 - February 3rd, 2015: As of early February 2015, missing episodes that were uploaded to YouTube before being taken down by Disney (such as "Party Animal", "What Does Sweat Have To Do With It" and "No Substitutions, Please") have been found and were uploaded within the month, bringing the number of episodes up to thirty-five . Other low quality episodes ("Strickler's Pet" and "Scott's Honor") have been replaced with their original format (Low: 320x240; Original: 640x480 or 720x480).
UPDATE 2 - March 23rd, 2015: Recently it's been discovered that the show is now airing in reruns in the Philippines channel TV5. It went off in early May and came back on in July until mid September.
UPDATE 3 - July 2nd, 2015: The episode "To Bee or Not To Bee" has finally been recorded and rendered online. Thirty-six of thirty-nine episodes have been found as of July 2015 .
UPDATE 4 - September 15th, 2015: Although episodes have stopped airing on TV5 as of September 21st, 2015, the missing episode "The Flipper" has been recorded and has been uploaded to Dailymotion, with the missing 20 seconds reinserted in (originally uploaded in August before being reuploaded on September 15th, 2015). Every episode (In different languages) is now online for your viewing pleasure :) .
Available Episodes (As of March 2016):
(Up to thirty-six English episodes have been uploaded to both Facebook and Dailymotion, but dubbed episodes have been specifically uploaded to Dailymotion. As of March 28, 2016, there is one episode in Greek, twelve episodes in Russian (including the entire movie in as well), and twenty-one episodes in Filipino.
UPDATE 5 - April 3rd, 2016: If you check in the comments, MrLeap happens to have "Attack of the 50 Inch Girl" in English on VHS and recently uploaded it to Google Drive. This includes the full episode with commercials that aired with the rerun .
The video was posted on Dailymotion and Facebook later the same day; Thirty-seven of thirty-nine episodes have been found.
On a side note, he's gonna check some other tapes, but he may also have "The Blight Before Christmas" and "The Flipper" as well!
Another Update January-April 2017: The show has recently been airing on the Malaysian channel TV3, with the episodes airing being from Season 2 and presented in Widescreen and English
The Final Update, June 2017: The show's remaining lost episodes have finally been found completely in English by Goryparodies, who runs the unofficial Teacher's Pet Facebook page. Though higher-quality copies of episodes are currently in search of.
- One issue with some episodes is that there are brief scenes (usually after the episode comes back from commercial break) that are missing due to how the episode was recorded ("Scott's Honor", "Costume Pity Party" and "Party Animal"). This can even result in the title card or even credits being omitted from the video ("Pet Project", "A Few Good Boys" and "Never Take Candy From A Kindergartner"). One episode ("A Breed Apart") happens to have issues with keeping the tape in place, which results in the video being all jittery.
