Status: Partially Lost

The Jersey was Disney Channel sports themed comedy show that aired 64 episodes over 3 seasons between January 1999 and March 2004. The show featured a group of teenagers who came into possession of the titular jersey, a magical piece of clothing that would place the kids into the bodies of real life sports stars. The transformations would often be shown "Quantum Leap Style" with some shots featuring the teenage actors as the sports star and other shots featuring the athlete as a guest star.

Of the 64 episodes aired, 29 are available in full in poor quality on Youtube leaving 35 episodes lost.

The show never received a home video release and is not available on Disney's streaming platform Disney Plus despite other Disney Channel shows of the time such as So Weird being regularly available. It is not known why the series has not been made more widely available. It can be speculated that the show's extensive use of real life sports teams may have created difficult licensing agreements with the athletic organizations involved complicating any future releases.
