YES but tvland does not do that sort of thing anymore

when they first started out there were a low income channel, but now they are in the big leagues and dont take chances

that is why u see 99% of the shows they air are SAFE shows like I LOVE LUCY and GUNSMOKE--- shows they can COUNT ON for ratings

why take a chance on a 30 year old show that noone has heard of when u can show another sanford rerun instead?

its all about the $$$$

I also remember this show and have spent the last 30 years trying to forget it but to no avail. It haunts me still. Maybe I need psychiatric help.
As shows go it belongs in the "so bad it's good" category, everything about it was plain rotten but like a bad car wreck you couldn't look away.
Around the same time there was a show called Holmes & Yo-Yo which was almost as bad. Almost. But nothing could beat Tina. And nothing ever will.

So, sue me for not having the same taste as everyone else! What can I say?

Don't get me wrong, I'm actully agreeing with you. I would love to see this again. As a youngster I watched the show, fascinated by it's weird hysterical awfulness and I said to myself: "Someday I will reminisce about this with strangers on an Internet message board, even though such a thing has not been invented yet." And now that day has finally arrived.

Holmes and Yo-Yo on DVD? Maybe there's hope for Mr. T & Tina after all.

What a really want to see is a show dedicated to these obscure shows but TV Land has tried that and won't try again it seems. I would even settle for a one-time 2 hour special, it would be perfect for Halloween come to think of it. Call it "The Graveyard of Dead Sitcoms". Some guy in vampire makeup could crawl out of a coffin waving an old TV Guide and introduce the next one. There's a big market for "so bad their good" movies like Plan 9 From Outer Space so why not for TV programs too? A failed show in the 70s likely got as many millions of viewers as a Top 10 show gets today. There must be legions of people walking around with the memory of this stuff in their heads. We NEED to see them again.

Maybe some TV exec will read this and see the light in time for next Halloween. How else are we ever going to see Hello Larry, CPO Sharkey, or Me And The Chimp again? Meanwhile I am waiting patiently by my TV for their re-appearance and will wait 30 more years if I have to....

I'm assuming that the episode you have on DVD is the same one that I got from you on VHS. There is a preview for Mr. T and Tina during the commercial break on there. This kid looks at Tina and says "Tina is cool." Then it shows Mr. T saying "I don't care about body tempature!" or something like that.
