Hello

Im a huge purcell fan but never happened to tape the sam & max show myself .Used to watch it alot though hehe. Anyway after buying the 3 vhs set there are quite a few episodes missing and I would really love to complete my collection if its possible.
Please please let me know if anyone knows where to obtain those lost episodes

9 "A Glitch in Time" November 1, 1997 . . .
12 "Christmas Bloody Christmas" December 20, 1997
13 "It's Dangly Deever Time" February 6, 1998 . . .

  • I forgot to add that there are 30-60 second clips that showed at the end of the cartoons. I have one recorded with a how to make the max hand puppet with a paper bag... this is shown in sam & max's office on the bulletin board.
    Anyway Im looking to get as many of those 1 minute clips too. Ive only seen the one I have recorded.

  • Well, those episodes are on Gametap. But you have to subscribe to it to see them. Those short clips you mention aren't on there, however. I've never heard of them until now.

  • I haven't looked lately, but I wouldn't be surprised if some/all of those episodes are still on Youtube. Probably poor quality, but not too much worse than VHS ;)

    There's an extension for firefox called Getvideo which lets you save .flv files from YouTube, and then you can use some complicated video conversion program to make them into something you can burn to DVD.

    I wonder if they'll make an official DVD available at some point? I can see some logic to keeping it "exclusive" to GameTap, but I'd assume they'd make more money if they could charge people $30 to buy the series.

  • I know there's a torrent going around with all the VHS episodes on it, not to mention that I've seen several of those eps posted on YouTube

  • I have Christmas, bloody Christmas, The glazed Mcguffin Affair and a glitch in time, but they're all bad quality

    Oh and i have One of the 3 shorts

  • The missing episodes are on gametap? I was told they were not.. only the official ones were. If they are let me know since I dont have access to gametap and dont condone it :P
    Also I dont do youtube for videos since the quality is so poor its unwatchable. Some serious fan was selling a DVD at a comic con.. really well made.. it had every episode in TV aired VHS quality. IE all the same as the official VHS. Of course I didnt get one and missed the auction when one came up on ebay. Would be nice to see these episodes and interludes again. And not on youtube smashed up :( If anyone knows please let me know!

  • If they can't be found illegally or on Gametap, they probably can't be found anywhere, I'm afraid.


    You know, as much as I'd prefer a DVD release, I would gladly purchase downloads of these episodes.

  • The missing episodes are on gametap?

    I just went to check GameTap itself...

    Looks like they're all there on GameTap except "Fools Die on Friday." They're not a great resolution, but they're quite a bit cleaner and crisper than youtube.

  • Fools die on Friday is too on GameTap... ;)

    Check again.

  • @Maratanos said: Fools die on Friday is too on GameTap... ;)

    Check again.

    I still have the Archive open from before, and I'm not seeing it.
