I remember this show!

I remember this show! I grew up near Chicago and WGN, Ch 9, reran this show after school. It was known as "WOG". Most memorable was the opening in which the letters W...O...G would appear large on the screen zooming up at you. then the announcer would shout, "W.O.G, World Of Giants!". Even as kids we all laughed at the ridiculous premise Surely there must be some episodes on tape somewhere. I remember one episode where the bad guys steal the briefcase that Mel lives in. They find little toy furniture inside and think he's a doll salesman. I wish I could find a copy of this show somewhere. Does anyone know of any copies anywhere?
