I don't really know if this counts as lost media so if it doesn't please do not get angry at me...I've never posted here before.
Anyways onto the topic, on May 1st, 1999 straight after the KCA 99 nick premiered one of their most popular shows Spongebob Squarepants. Sadly, it seems no one has the premiere or it is just lost. If anyone here has a KCA 99 tape or recorded you should check it, 00.001% chance it could have the premiere. I just really hope it gets find before the 20th anniversary, it'd be a pretty neat surprise.
Anyways thank for reading . Have any more info? Tell us in the replies.
Someone must have this on VHS somewhere, as premieres sometimes tend to show up when they're least expected. For example, after remembering that I found the first airing of Mumfie's White Christmas on the Internet Archive, I decided to see if any Garfield and Friends premieres were there...and the original series premiere, which would've been harder to find than the first SpongeBob because not many people had VCRs back then, was posted along with some other airings from the first season. And my friend CDCB2 unexpectedly found Binyah Binyah on a tape of Nick Jr. and Playhouse Disney shows...

as interested as I am in this search it really does bring up an interesting question: Do we consider tv premieres lost media assuming the episode aired and all commercials aired are already found and if we do how do we treat them within the spectrum of lost media?

We aren't looking for recreations. I personally believe this search is all about being able to see the exact moment in time where people first experienced what is now one of the most iconic tv shows of all time in the most authentic way possible.
