I am contact with UCLA which seems to have at least a full episode. According to the emails we have to wait for the archive to clear all the copyright which should take a week or two. On the Lost Media Wiki Discord the user: togemet2 is in contact with a former staff member. In terms of the UCLA copy It should be out by the end of January if all goes well. I am thankful for participating in the hunt for this weird cartoon.
Oh, nice. King Koopa's Kool Kartoons! I was wondering if this was missing or not. I wasn't going to look for it but now since there's a forum thread about it that encouraged me to go look for the episodes.

hope the search goes well i cant be of much assistance since i dont live in cal but i hope i can help in some way some time this definitely could be the next clockman PS: there are some clips of the show in youtube
Hey, i thought i would weigh in on this thread. I was the last person to find clips of the show in my VHS tapes and have been talking with togemet2 on how to find more clips and episodes of the show. I live in Southern California and remember the show vaguely (it wasn't good). The update is, i know people who are able to help out at getting more footage but i have to tread lightly. Getting lost footage can be an extremely touchy subject. Archivists can be either very friendly or very cranky, and they keep grudges so if you piss somebody off they will remember you and they will remember what you were looking for and will red flag stuff. I work with quite a few of them. The UCLA film archive is one such place, they are extremely protective and operate on an "in group" preference. I wouldn't bug them. Hopefully in the next few months i will either have found more footage or another update on this. Sorry it can be quicker but i don't want to get the items Red Flagged.
On a side note i have several boxes of VHS tapes to still go through, and i have found quite a few things that would be considered "lost media". I also have a U-matic player which i'm working on repairing because i have found quite a large amount of lost media on those tapes, problem is getting them off of that format. take care and tread lightly
I got in contact with UCLA and they gave me some details on how to possibly access their video. They want me to contact DIC Enterprises since they hold the rights, but they're now a part of DHX Media, so I'm not sure who to contact.
Update on my progress: I had two contacts at UCLA who would have been able to access the tape. I did some extensive film work for 1 of my contacts (as a favor if he helped me), but in the end he was not willing to help me get the tape as it required some footwork on his end. The other contact was more or less the same. So as of now i've exhausted my current resources.
