Lost Films & Media I Really Want to See

[FYI, I intend to update this as I discover more things I can’t find on the internet]

  1. The Duggar Family singing Jim Bob’s 2004 political theme song, “Won’t You Please Vote For My Daddy?” Which is referenced in this article, back when the family only had 14 children. I’ve heard that the Duggar’s released it as part of their press package for the election, but from what I can tell, no videos of the song have been posted online. I’m very sickly fascinated by this family, and have always been curious about it.
  2. The Amateur’s Guide to Love 
  3. Ethel Is an Elephant  – A NYC photographer has to cope with his new roommate, Ethel, who is an elephant. I’m not sure why this pilot was never picked up, since it sounds amazing.
  4. Gary Busey hosting a marathon on Nickelodeon in 2002- This one may or may not exist.
  5. LAX 2194 – An unsold pilot with Ryan Stiles as an alien.
  6. A Dog’s Life – This looks to be a really unfunny precursor to Wilfred. I wanna see it.
  7. A We-Are-18 commercial that aired on cable from the mid-90s to the early 2000s. In it, a woman takes off a fur coat and says, “It’s cold outside, but it’s sizzling in here.” This ad apparently ran for a few years, and my boyfriend references it every winter when, but I’ve never been able to find it.
  8. This animation I saw several times as a kid called “Fidget-y Midgety.” After trying to find it, I did find it on a list of Cartoon Network webtoons someone compiled (which was helpful, because I totally remembered it being Nickelodeon–but all evidence so far points to my brain being wrong). Despite finding evidence that I’m not crazy, and it does exist, I can’t find record of the actual cartoon anywhere. It was about a girl named Midge who couldn’t stop fidgeting, and I really related to it in my little ADHD heart. I’ve had what I remember of the song stuck in my head intermittently for the past 15 years.
  9. September 25, 2003 Broadcast of ABC’s Primetime Live, which included an interview with Treva Throneberry, and from what I can tell, is the only recorded interview of her that seems to exist. According to worldcat.org, it aired with a segment about hotel sanitation, and may have been released on VHS, however no known libraries hold a copy.
