What's up guys, dycaite here with another long overdue notice board post; apologies for the delay (you're probably sick of hearing that by now, but life has a habit of getting in the way of these things, y'know? ^_^'). Anyway there's a bunch to get through today so that's more than enough waffling from me, let's get straight into it:
+
''A note from dycaite: Sorry about the custom forums link being inaccessible for the past few days, ProBoards changed how their DNS settings worked - back up and running now.''

Buenos días, muchacha latas, it’s about that time again! As there is no dilly-dallying allowed in this household, let’s jump straight to the big news – we’ve got some '''new video collaborators''' on board! You probably already know them, but give a warm welcome to [[Collaborators/blameitonjorge|blameitonjorge]], [[Collaborators/LSuperSonicQ|LSuperSonicQ]], and [[Collaborators/Bedhead Bernie|Bedhead Bernie]]! From now on their lost media videos will be featured on the new [[Collaborators]] pages, as well as in future announcements and notice board posts. All of them are very talented at what they do, so be sure to check them out if you haven’t already!
 +
 
 +
Now, on to the recent finds:
 +
 
 +
*First off, a pretty major one (in my opinion) – a copy of the long-lost Osamu Sato VCD [[The Esoteric Retina (found Osamu Sato Video CD; 1994)|''The Esoteric Retina'']] finally popped up in the form of an [https://www.ebay.com/itm/302614740373 eBay auction], and user [https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCbxnEwFYIFlKUUCCLlhGCfQ Swazaaa] managed to grab it and put its contents online for all to see. The final bid came in at $717 USD, so let’s give a huge, HUGE thanks to them and the rest of the Osamu Sato community for pulling this together! The videos can be seen above on his YouTube account, or a full disc image with scans can be downloaded [https://archive.org/details/the-esoteric-retina here].
 +
 
 +
*After years of being completely lost, the entire English dub of the 1993 anime series [[The Bush Baby (found English dub of anime series; 1993)|''The Bush Baby'']] has been uploaded by YouTuber [https://www.youtube.com/user/Talim2004 Azunyan]! Reportedly, it was one of their favorite shows as a kid in the 90s, so their mom had worked tirelessly to get all 40 episodes recorded on VHS so they could still watch it years later – impressive foresight, to say the least. Major thanks to them for taking the effort to share their childhood with the rest of us!
 +
 
 +
*Four episodes of the lost sitcom [[13 Queens Boulevard (partially found sitcom TV series; 1979)|''13 Queens Boulevard'']] have been uploaded by LMW user [http://forums.lostmediawiki.com/user/1390 gilblitz112]/[https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC404ZwG2jfXsMxM23z6UEdQ Mitchell's Archive]! These are the first full episodes from the series to surface, so big thanks to him and his acquaintance for supplying him with them!
 +
 
 +
*Out of nowhere, programmer Les Bird discovered the source code for [[Codename Kids Next Door: Operation B.E.S.T. (found online game; 2004-2005)|''Codename Kids Next Door: Operation B.E.S.T.'']] in his archives and found a way to get it running in an offline state. He uploaded 2 videos of gameplay before uploading the game [http://www.lesbird.com/kndoperationbest.html to his website], so big thanks for doing that dude! We appreciate it.
  
* [[Pixar's Made in Point Richmond DVD Rarities (found various Pixar footage; 1986-2000)|Pixar's ''Made in Point Richmond'' DVD]] has been found! The infamously hard to find DVD ([[Pixar's early ads (partially lost CGI animated commercials; 1989-1998)|a collection]] of rare [[Jessie Patsy Montana Entertainer Award Acceptance Speech (found Toy Story character animation; 2000)|Pixar animations]] that was never officially released, but rather given to Pixar employees as a gift in 2001) showed up online last month courtesy of LMW user jaret35 (aka ayeayematey), in the form of [https://drive.google.com/file/d/1cBpzufxPSn6qlLu_yUnpaMkeqQ35-PFm/view an encrypted iso] (a decrypted version has since been made by contributor TOMYSSHADOW and can be found [https://mega.nz/#F!soI2DSZT!YdRORntcJqWGJ4iyY_M-Pw here on MEGA], or [https://drive.google.com/open?id=10mxFzpzpnfNc-1fF1A2D39cXgKf33r_Y here on Google Drive])! If isos aren't your thing, you can start streaming via the above embed (the first video in [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DvjEKGe7iA0&list=PL0tK8FP89zCITOr5vJZ3oO-KgdWH3BIBb a playlist of the DVD's contents], via YouTuber The Collective Animation Archive). Big thanks to jaret35 for the provision of the iso and to both TOMYSSHADOW and The Collective Animation Archive for making its contents more widely available!
+
*Volume 4 of the obscure VHS series [[M3D (partially found direct-to-video series; 1990s)|''M3D'']] has been ripped and uploaded by LMW user TonyFunStuff. It can be viewed [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MYc2GC42NLQ here]. Thank you!
  
* The 1997 [[Pokémon Gold & Silver 1997 Space World Demo (found early demo build of game; 1997)|''Pokemon Gold & Silver'' Space World demo]] has been dumped online! Anonymously leaked on 4chan late last month, the ROM went on to make quite a splash in the world of Pokemon fandom (and the gaming world in general) due to it containing a large variety of unused/beta Pokemon; a video showcasing some of these Pokemon can be seen above courtesy of YouTuber TheJWittz (P.S. cheers for listing us as one of your references)! The ROM itself [https://tcrf.net/Proto:Pok%C3%A9mon_Gold_and_Silver can be downloaded here] via The Cutting Room Floor; big thanks to everyone involved in getting this piece of gaming history out to the public and making sure it's preserved for generations to come!
+
*The 2002 mobile game [[Munkiki's Castles (found mobile game; 2002)|''Munkiki's Castles'']] has been technically found for over a year now, but it’s been completely inaccessible as there were no emulators capable of running it. Well, not anymore! After a May update, the emulator [https://sourceforge.net/projects/freej2me/ FreeJ2ME] is now fully able to emulate the game, officially closing this case.
  
* Our good friend [https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCntBLn2xskJWKqMV40BqKJA Bedhead Bernie] has been hard at work on a mini-documentary about the troubled production of the unreleased 2009 3D animated film (once TV series) [[Freaky Flickers: Quest for the Golden Flicker (partially found independent animated CGI film; 2009)|''Freaky Flickers: Quest for the Golden Flicker'']] and as of today the documentary is available for viewing via his YouTube channel! You can catch it via the above embed; be sure to give a like and a sub to Bedhead Bernie for more content like this, it would have taken copious amounts of time and original research to put this together and the whole story is surprisingly engaging, despite the nature of the film in question (and you might even hear a familiar voice or two). Great work, Bernie and co.! P.S. You can catch the [https://drive.google.com/file/d/1kOXfWb9r9ykaLYPgHfcnzQtZ7PbYgttM/view script for the original TV pilot episode here].
+
*Another episode of the elusive puppet series [[Welcome to Pooh Corner (partially found live-action puppet Disney show; 1983-1986)|''Welcome to Pooh Corner'']] has surfaced! It can be viewed [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cNdXqPKOWQ8 here], thank you to Donut Smasher for uploading it.
  
* The 90s rarity that is Japanese puzzle/horror game [[Zeddas: Horror Tour 3 / Labyrinthe (found Japanese PC game; mid-late 1990s)|''Zeddas Horror Tour 3 / Labyrinthe'']] has been found and released online, and under some pretty extraordinary circumstances! YouTuber [https://www.youtube.com/channel/UChYXq-Z-mQycjOnuWY2r-MA Saint] is said to have discovered a folder on an unnamed private torrent tracker marked "DO NOT UPLOAD", which contained no less than 70 Japanese gaming rarities ([https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/article/a3anja/labyrinthe-japanese-game-discovered-on-private-forum yes, 70, you are not misreading that]), most notably including the highly sought after ''Zeddas 2'' sequel. While Saint hasn't made the entirety of the folder's contents public (at least as of this writing), he ''has'' provided a link to arguably the most revered of the bunch, ''Zeddas Horror Tour 3 / Labyrinthe'', which [https://mega.nz/#!kE9xiZiI!pIgWtyBAYLTRd2mF5YD-o45PM0muzm7_d7oxEwJZKNE can be found here (for both Windows and Mac)]! Big thanks to the original ripper/uploader and to Saint for making it available to the public; here's hoping he didn't cop too much flak for having done so (exclusive sharing is always such a touchy subject)~
+
*LMW volunteer [[User:Binzhou5|Bisou5]] has ripped and uploaded the pilot of the 1975 series [[Kate McShane (partially found live-action legal drama series; 1975)|''Kate McShane'']], sourced from an unofficial DVD release. The pilot is now available [https://archive.org/details/title00_201807 on archive.org] for all to view, so thank you for that Bisou!
  
* If you've been keeping up with [[Socks the Cat Rocks the Hill (partially lost Super Nintendo/Sega Genesis platform game; 1993-1994)|''Socks the Cat Rocks the Hill'']] news, you'll no doubt know that the once-lost 90s game featuring none other than Bill Clinton's late cat Socks recently received a limited revival in the form of crowdfunded reproduction carts. Well now, the ROM has finally hit the internet, for those who do not have any other means of playing it! The ROM [https://www.maxconsole.com/attachments/os-socks-lzh.14521/ can be downloaded here], courtesy of OLDSKOOL; thanks!
+
*For years, we thought [[Short Subject aka "Mickey Mouse in Vietnam" (found unofficial animated short; 1968)|''Mickey Mouse in Vietnam'']] had been found. Well, turns out it wasn't completely found and it also wasn't only titled ''Mickey Mouse in Vietnam''. VHS archivist [https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCegSM4eTvXqXylcPQ2SDezw CDCB2] found a copy of the full short with its original soundtrack and opening/closing titles on a tape his friend sent him, and has graciously uploaded it! From this, we can see that the original title appears to be ''Short Subject''. Thank you so much for finding what we didn't even think existed! A raw copy of the clip can be found [https://drive.google.com/file/d/1S7GFpt8XjTUHyjwS4C7n4K9fOUvbTQl9/view here].
  
* Two more episodes of the animated [[Ace Ventura: Pet Detective (partially lost animated series; 1995-2000)|Ace Ventura: Pet Detective]] series have been found! The episodes "Circus Ace" and "The Cat Who Paints" were last month emailed to The Lost Cartoons Archive by a man named Dan Vzare, allegedly sourced from a now-defunct torrent site, years ago. You can catch "Circus Ace" and "The Cat Who Paints" above via The Lost Cartoons Archive's YouTube channel; big thanks to Dan Vzare and The Lost Cartoons Archive for the provision of these rare installments!
+
*Last but not least, after many months of dedicated searching for it, LMW user DaKoolDood finally found the lost [[South Park (found GBC game; 1998)|''South Park'' game for Game Boy Color]]! As the game was never released, this ROM comes from one of the developers, David Theodore, who still had a copy and shared it with him. Big thanks to DaKoolDood for his efforts in finding it, and to David Theodore for sharing it with him!
  
* In one more quick piece of gaming news, the once-free [[NanoQuest (found PC educational game; 2006)|2006 educational game ''NanoQuest'']] has been recovered! The last known working executable of the game (originally a free to download title) was recently acquired by the folks at Twitch channel [https://www.twitch.tv/gatorbox Gatorbox] and has been shared online by them as of earlier this month! You can [http://www.gator.co/secretstash/NanoQuest.rar download it here]; thanks Gatorbox!

One last thing I want to mention, as less of a find and more of an update: two Osamu Tezuka films we have articles relating to, [[A Thousand and One Nights (lost English dub of anime film; 1969)|''A Thousand and One Nights'']] and [[Cleopatra: Queen of Sex (partially found English sub and dub of Osamu Tezuka erotic anime film; early 1970s)|''Cleopatra'']] (both articles <span style="color:hotpink">'''NSFW'''</span>), have been [http://thirdwindowfilms.com/films/animerama-1001-nights-cleopatra/ reissued on DVD and Blu-Ray] by distributor Third Window Films as part of their Animerama series. Unfortunately, this only includes the original Japanese-language versions with subtitles, leaving the former’s English dub lost and the latter’s English dub existence-unconfirmed. Still, definitely check out the release if you’re interested in these films.
  
That's a wrap for this notice board, was there anything big I missed? If so, hit me up on either the LMW forums or Discord and I'll make some amendments. Take it easy!
+
That’s all for this time, I have to get back to my billion dollar mansion with my 17 Ferraris and eat caviar or something 😎😎😎😎. See you next time!

A note from dycaite: Sorry about the custom forums link being inaccessible for the past few days, ProBoards changed how their DNS settings worked - back up and running now.

Buenos días, muchacha latas, it’s about that time again! As there is no dilly-dallying allowed in this household, let’s jump straight to the big news – we’ve got some new video collaborators on board! You probably already know them, but give a warm welcome to blameitonjorge, LSuperSonicQ, and Bedhead Bernie!
