    Goodness! I wish I had had the sense to tape up all those episodes way back then! The thing about these episodes is just reading about them is bringing back such wonderful childhood memories as the 1987-1990 period is when I remember watching SS so much (I can't remember anything earlier than 1987 and I stopped watching in 1990 in favor of The Disney Afternoon). I'd be willing to take these episodes any way I could get them!

  9. Hays

    Hays New Member

    Too true! Of course, for the first few seasons we couldn't have taped them - most people didn't get a home VCR until the mid 70s (and we actually got a Betamax machine, so if I had, the tapes would be unreadable)
  10. ssetta

    ssetta Active Member

    I have to have some of these! I e-mailed you and didn't get a response! I have a whole bunch of stuff to trade! Please e-mail me back!!
  11. Splurge

    Splurge Member

    Theoretically, you could output material from a Betamax onto a VHS or onto another format as long as you had the proper wiring. That is possible, isn't it?

    I'm reminded by a scene from the Simpsons where Springfield is being looted, and one of the criminal characters runs away with a video machine, but then looks at horror at what he stole: "(Brit accent) Oh, no! Beta!"

    Oliver New Member

    I only have 4 or 5 tapes from the 1984-86 seasons (I believe), but I'd really like to trade with you if possible. I'd even be willing to pay you for these episodes.

    I'd just like to know what the video quality is like for the most part on these recordings? Are there any scracthes or visible video static throughout these tapes and are they all complete with opening and closing sequences?

    Do you have access to a dvd burner and would you be willing to compile some dvd's or vcd's of these episodes for $ compensation?

    Please let me know, thanks a lot!!!
