Default bad news regarding season 2, Laverne and Mork from HTF

I read this on Home Theater Forum from a poster who has Paramount connections

Quote:
So I talked to my friend. It appears future releases for these series have been cancelled because of music rights issues. Apparently "Happy Days" season 2 would cost several million in music rights alone. Whether or not they decide to release them with replaced music is unknown, but as of right now... they're dead in the water.

Don't panic! They might be able to change the music. I bought an Andy Griffith DVD before they had the rights to the whistling theme song (don't know why they would need them since the song was written for the show) - but they replaced it with other music.

I then bought Season I and it had the proper music to it.

Hang in there - same might happen for you!

ok, with Happy Days, i can understand that they have a LOT of music that they'd need to acquire the rights for, but Laverne and Shirley and Mork & Mindy don't really have any music in them that would require licensing (well L&S might have a couple of songs, but NO WAY does M&M)

:bsod: Man, those news suck. I just hope Paramount will release every season eventually. Anyway, I'll have to start taping Happy Days again, just in case.

Angry paramount is the pits

i've said it before they are a bunch of cry babies they do know promotion ,no advertising for any of their dvds these shows are not costing them anything to make the cast isn't making much money on these old shows. so even if the package cost we the consumer a little more money wouldn't it be worth it to have these classic shows in their original state with the original music.and what about some of the latter seasons with less music.will we ever see them now?

and your stuck watching sliced and diced eps in reruns

that really sucks

I TOTALLY agree. My bubble's been bursted. I know some shows that end up having only one season available on DVD. It's too bad that Happy Days had to be one of them.

I heard about this from the L&S board, upsets me a lot. I just don't think that it's fair to start up something and then not finish it, that company has a helluva lot of money so IDK what they're problem is. All I know is that I went to the official site for Paramount, found an address; probably gonna write to them. If anyone else wants it, I got it.

Thumbs down you can write them,we can all write them

but truthfully they don't care they are a huge company that cares about money and high profits i believe if season one sold better this music issue would be a minor thing and this maybe a situation with happy days but i believe that laverne and mork are just excuses because the season one sets of these didn't sell as well as paramount wanted.

This is the same problem they're having trying to release The Wonder Years. I hope they don't take the shortcut someone suggested and use alternative songs. I want all the episodes to be in their original forms. Supposedly, they're working through all that with Wonder Years, so hopefull they can do the same for HD.

Well so much for having any of the seasons out on dvd besides season 1. I have most of them on tape anyway, but it is nice to have them on dvd because there are no ads, they sometimes have special features and the color is better. Well I hope that they do get the music thing straightened out so we can see more seasons out.

Well it would at least show that we care what they're doing. And who knows, maybe if enough people would write, maybe they'd change their minds.
I thought that the first season sold pretty well actually, well of L&S.
