Question Do You Think a "Hello Larry" complete series DVD set would sell...??

Now, don't get me wrong. When I say "sell," I'd be referring to very modest numbers...maybe 10,000 copies max. I think that given its infamous status and cult following, a few thousand copies could be moved easy.

I know this probably won't happen, but I don't think it's unrealistic to think it would have some sales appeal, either.

What do you guys (and girls) think??

I don't know if enough people remember the show. I loved it and would love to see it on DVD.

I think it enjoys a sort of infamous cult status that would sell at least a few copies. I vaguely remember it - I did watch it when it was on, but after 25 years, memories do tend to fade. I think they're going to get out the hit series on DVD first, so I wouldn't count on seeing this one soon...if ever.

I know what you mean. I watched it when it was originally on but my memories have faded too. At the time I thought it was a cute show and I liked it better than the first season of the FOL. The only time I've seen them since has been on reruns of Diff'rent Strokes. There are a lot of short lived tv shows from that era I'd like to see again but I'm afraid most of them are gone forever.

No it wouldn't sell due to the fact it was short-lived and never seen in syndication. That DVD would remain on the shelf in Best Buy-LOL

I think that nostalgia is huge right now so:

1. Mclean Stevenson was on MASH and we loved him on that.

2. Kim Richards is a '70s icon.

3. The show was decent.

I think it would sell. Maybe not as much as Diff'rent Strokes, but I think they could sell enough copies of Hello Larry to make a little profit.

I disagree, I think this show would do miserable in sales. It hasn't been seen in 25 years and never in syndication so I can't see this show selling on DVD.

I didn't know that. Still, I think this show could sell at least 4,000- 5,000 copies. People who used to watch this show in it's original run would buy the dvds and I think people who liked the crossover episodes on the Diff'rent Strokes dvd, such as myself, would buy the HL dvds too.

here we are 25 years later, still discussing a show that didn't last long enough to see syndication but has nonetheless become a touchstone of "bad 70s memories".

i know i'd buy the dvd and unless the great unwashed American public has changed overnight, i'm fairly sure i wouldn't be the only one.

in fact, if this DVD does come out (which is pretty unlikely at this point,) your copy is on me, Solomon.

Yeah it would sell. Hello Larry is probably the most infamous short lived series next to My Mother The Car. It wouldn't get blockbluster numbers.... but for having not seen it, a lot of people know about HL.

A show that has not been seen since 1980 will not sell 10 copies on DVD

That's exaggerating. And yes.... it would sell. It wouldn't have huge Seinfeld numbers, or even DS numbers.... but it would do alright. People would buy the DVD just to see what the hoopla over the show is all about.

10 bucks says it would sell 100 times better than That's My Mama.
