Joe Flaherty in the upcoming series,
"Uncle Joe's Cartoon Playhouse".
Veteran SCTV star Joe Flaherty was featured in a podcast on bitetv.ca on Dec. 22, 2006. Joe talks about his new series "Uncle Joe's Cartoon Playhouse" which will be on Bite TV and of course his years with SCTV. Check it out at bitetv.ca! "Uncle" Joe Flaherty (SCTV, Happy Gilmore) plays the gormless host of this edgy new comedy show, featuring short cartoons aimed at an older (but still immature as hell) audience. Featuring an onslaught of recurring shorts guaranteed to tickle the offensive-bone, Uncle Joe's Cartoon Playhouse will take animated comedy to the next level... whatever the hell that means. You've got the howlingly absurd antics of our porcine protagonists in Big Ass America; the vicious political satire Becoming Georgie; the grotesquely funny super-powered she-males who make up TransForce; the rollicking misadventures of Chilly Beach's brain-dead Canuckleheads; and much more! Between shorts, Uncle Joe must entertain a live audience of squealing schoolkids, regaling them with sordid tales of his own depravity. He might be most inappropriate child entertainer since "Abuso the Cursing Clown" - think Captain Kangaroo, if the good Captain was a thrice-divorced, eternally hung-over misanthropist with a talent for siphoning gas.

The pupose of the SCTV on DVD Campaign is to create a voice for fans of SCTV regarding the SCTV DVDs. Some of the content owners of music used in the series have denied the use of their music on the DVDs. It is their right to do so, but fans who buy the DVDs deserve to have their say. That is what this site is all about!
SCTV on DVD Campaign MSN Group
I have put together an SCTV on DVD Campaign group on msn.com. I hope that this will be a spring board for another group to rally behind the SCTV on DVD Campaign.

Justin Pate has also put together an all new petition. Two petitions are better than one!
No more best of SCTV DVD sets - only complete seasons.
"I am against the attack. I think that we all share an enormous amount, far more than we don't share. We can't afford to have people not contributing to the intellectual and moral and spirtual wealth of the country because they feel that they have been excluded." - Paul Simon
Although SCTV has already seen two DVD releases, it is the goal of this campaign to see to it that the remaining seasons actually get released, as well as all of the music restored to every season. Hopefully, sometime down the road, Seasons 4 and 5 will get re-released with all of the music intact! However, none of this will happen without the feedback of fans!
