Availability[edit | edit source]
Before August 2018, due to the show's short run and lack of home releases, over half of the episodes were missing. However, four episodes (one of which is in Spanish and in three parts) were found online along with multiple promo commercials for the show. The show has reportedly had reruns on other channels multiple times, however.
All the episodes were finally released by Warner Bros in August 2018 on the iTunes store. A DVD Release of the series by Warner Archive followed on May 21st, 2019.
