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


Have to disagree again because TMM was in syndication during the 80's. HL has been unseen for 25 years and I just can't see no one paying for a HL DVD

There is little if any difference between a show not being seen since the 80s and a show not being seen since the 70s.

If you had 10 people in a room, I doubt 2 would even know what TMM was. Whereas 6 or 7 would recognize the name "Hello Larry"

I would like to see Hello, Larry again, but I don't know if I would actually buy the set. I would rent it or check it out from the library. I haven't seen it since it's original run.

It would sell. We will be seeing more and more shows like "Hello Larry" released to dvd. Limited sales potential, yes. But it's there. Take "Tabitha" for instance. The producers knew damn well they were only going to selll a few thousand copies of the set, so they charged accordingly. I'm not seeing the title restocked, but I saw the copies move untill they were gone. And I bought one, even though I didn't like the show when it was on. I still think it was mishandled, but I enjoy it for what it is now. I'd love to buy "Hello, Larry". Speaking of rare, does anyone remember a syndicated series with Richard Schaal called "Please Stand By"?

If Hello Larry was released on DVD they better put the Diffrent Strokes characters on the back of the box since there crossed over THREE TIMES. That may help the DVD sell

Not to burst anyone's bubble or anything, but there are plenty of shows that were actual hits and considered classics that have yet to be released on DVD, so I wouldn't hold your breath waiting for a short-lived show that was considered by many to be one of the worst series of all-time.

My bubble's not burst, but thanks. Again, I say to ya and atcha..."Tabitha"! Many shows are held up by red tape, and nothing more. Maybe the "DS" set didn't sell like some of the "greedy bastards" were hoping it would, but I bet they made money.

Wich season of "DS" did "Hello, Larry" first appear on? Season Two...or are they on the Season One set?

The Hello Larry Cast appeared in season 1 of Diffrent Strokes and twice during Season 2 of Diffrent Strokes

True, but Tabitha had the tie-in of both the Bewitched series being released on DVD and the release of the theatrical film with Nicole Kidman, so there was an association with a beloved, classic TV series.

Hello Larry has only a superficial kind of association with Different Strokes as the characters were shoehorned into a few episodes to promote the show, which ultimately didn't work.

BTW, I decided to look back and see who started this cockamamie thread. Guess what?? It was ME!! So what the hell do I friggin' know????

LOL! That's funny!

You make some good points. Still, I really do think we will be seeing some releases that will surprise us. Maybe not "Hello, Larry", or at least, not any time very soon. But you never know, do ya?

BTW, I know it's off topic, but [I]does[I] anyone remember "Please Stand By" with Schaal? It also had Elenore Donahue. I've never forgotten it.

Well I'm glad I atleast had a chance to see 3 eps of Hello Larry from being a TV collector. Before I came to SitcomsOnline, I thought Hello Larry was a spinoff of Diffrent Strokes-lol
