Wish the would bring it out on DVD!!!! I loved this Show growing up and had it taped but lost them! Now I can't find it on anywhere! So I really Wish the would release it on to DVD for those of us that want to remember our Childhood!!! They have so many other shows on DVD why not this one!!! I would do anything to go back to the time when this show was on Disney!!! Nick has a 90's are all that thing going on now that shows all of there 90's classic shows. I think Disney should do it too! Shows like the Torkelsons, Avonlea, and Eerie Indiana were my favorite on Disney!!! Our Childhoods are very Special and we need to hold on to them as mush as we can and these shows help us hold on to that magic!!!
