Question Who has the rights to the show?

Does Disney still own it? I haven't seen it on lately.

I sure wish Disney would play it if is has the rights. If no one else does, I hope it gets picked up. I loved this show!

I don't know who owns the rights to this show but unfortunately I think your unlikely to see it on your TV anytime soon. The problem is that it was only on for one season and therefore only about 22 episodes were ever filmed. Usually for a shows reruns to go into syndication and be aired there needs to be a library of at least 100 episodes. The reason for this is to avoid having the audience get sick of seeing the same few episodes over and over. When this happens people stop watching and advertisers stop buying commercials. This is very bad news in the TV game.

I believe the show is under the Walt Disney Television label. I don't think it's under Buena Vista Television.

Thumbs up I used to

I used to watch this show. It was a very interesting show. I liked it. Too bad it's not on TV here anymore.
