The Max Headroom broadcast hijacking. I saw a post somewhere some time ago about the mystery being solved. I used to watch the show as a kid. Max Headroom was a popular mascot for awhile. Cafe 80's from Back to the Future 2 featured AI waiters that were directly inspired by Max Headroom. He was also the spokesman for New Coke. I have to be the only person in the world who liked New Coke. But I hated Coke as a kid. I was so happy they made it drinkable. Then they changed it back. At least there was still Pepsi.
I knew of lost media wiki from the lost media chronicles and blameitonjorge youtube channels however i never used or really knew the forums untill r.tipofmytounge suggested i go to you guys to find my two mystery shows, wich all though mostly lost, thanks to you wonderful people the shows wich i thought were impossible to find have been confirmed to be "rin tin dumb" and "noddy's shop"
One day, I randomly came across a blameitonjorge video (specifically "Banned or Missing Episodes of Kids' Cartoons") and quickly became interested in this guy's channel. 2 years into looking at this stuff, I found the old Wikia version of the site. In the summer of 2017 (and the same day Spider-Man: Homecoming came out), I signed up for an account on the forums and made my first thread. In October, I made an account on the wiki (the newer one) and later, on the wiki's 5th anniversary, I made an account on the shoutbox.

I was looking up things about Robert Zemickis' cancelled 3D motion capture remake of "Yellow Submarine" (the 1968 fantasy animated classic about The Beatles in pepperland trying to stop a group of characters called the Blue Meanies who hate music, while having adventures in their magical Yellow Submarine). The animation in that film was miraculous for 1968, and even better than some animation today. The mo-cap project was announced in 2009 by Disney, ImageMovers Digital (Disney and Zemeckis' joint-venture animation facility), and Apple Corps. (who owns the Beatles trademarks). It was supposed to star Peter Serafonowicz, Dean Lennox Kelly, Cary Elwes, Adam Campbell, and David Tennant (as Paul, John, George, Ringo, and The Chief Blue Meanie, respectively). It was decided in 2010 to close IMD, due to "A Christmas Carol" not making as much as they had hoped. Once their second film "Mars Needs Moms" was released in 2011, it was Disney's biggest bomb and the 2nd biggest bomb of all time (in terms of film, of course). Disney sunk the "Yellow Submarine" remake, but Zemeckis could take it to other studios. Nobody wanted it, so he cancelled it by 2012. I hate to say it, but I actually wish that it had been made. I just love the technology, I guess, and the director. Anyways, sorry for the long ramble, but that's how I discovered the Lost Media Wiki.
I discovered the Lost Media Wiki through TV Tropes in early 2017! I was so impressed with the quality of this wiki that I became a dedicated reader of the site for about 7 months before deciding to make an account here on the wiki.
Despite the frustrations of normal day life we go through, the best thing to do about it is still being happy for our friends and family.
I lied in my previous post; I actually believe it was because I was looking for footage of the Owen Hart incident and came across the article.
At some point I became interested in Cracks, but something (I believe it was Cracks) brought me to the site again, and at the top of the page I saw the picture of the ADWSS cover too many times not to be curious (I originally thought it was a soft-core porno or something, lol), and that's what completely drew me into the site: making an account, etc.
Anyway, after my first foray with the site I immediately found the concept of lost media fascinating, but found it difficult to make an account because (incase you guys didn't notice) we have some articles for some really fucking disturbing stuff.
"Yeah, I'm a member of the Lost Media Wiki."
"What does that entail?"
"Well, we try to find a video of some guy severing off another guy's dick, hoping to deep-fry and eat it. He eventually overcooks it so much he has to feed it to the dog"... and that's not even the worst article.
I still haven't unpixelated those photos *shudders*

For me, it was the 4Kids dub GoGoRiki. I found the LMW article on it and stumbled upon some other articles: Clock Man, ADWSS (which had already been found to not exist), Chubbuck, The Warm Scarf-Capade, Episode 29, you get the idea. I was hooked instantly.
I also noticed that two of the articles were cartoons reviewed by Mr. Enter, so I thought that was interesting.

I found this place after I watched the Nickelodeon 10 Years compilation video. After I saw that there were around 10 pilots that there where no information about, I looked all over the internet for information. I ended up finding the LMW, and after finding that there still wasn't information, ended up looking around the site. I then found the article for A Day With Spongebob Squarepants, which ended up getting me into lost media hunting.
