I'm working to recover and upload as much of the cartoon Little Clowns of Happytown for everyone's viewing. I know someone already created a Pastebin with links to my Korean episode uploads, but I just acquired a few more episodes so I thought I'd make my own. You can check it out here.
Like it says there, feel free message me on Lost Media Wiki or here on the LMW Forums if you have any questions or any info you'd like to share.
I have the Korean DVD! They released this series on DVD in South America too! Portugal I think, will have to look again but I know they released in South America.
You have the Korean DVD? Does it happen to be this one? This is the kind I have. I was under the impression that it was a bootleg DVD since the manufacturer, LGkid, seemed to not be an official DVD distributor. Are you saying there were official releases in Korea and South America? Or are you referring to bootleg releases?
Edit: Wait a minute... aren't you the same person who uploaded four episodes of the English version of the show to YouTube which later got taken down? If you are, do you still have those episodes?

YES That is me! You can follow me on Facebook - Meringue in Sugartown,USA! and on ok.ru under the same name! I still collect and post rare cartoons I already have lots of gems to share. On ok.ru the videos are easy to download and you can do it from their own website. Thank you for remembering my YouTube account! I still have the English episode maybe more than 4 now, not sure. And the Korean DVD set I have is actually commercially released in South Korea. I bought it from a a Korean video site that sells children education DVDs and the set was sold for learning how to speak English. So its for educational purposes over there. And so I seen it and bought it thought what the heck and got it within a few weeks. Th songs are in English and some of the words are broken English but very easy to follow the plot. If they are bootlegs, how did the Koreans get such good prints without TV logos? They had to get some kind of rigths for them. Isn't strange how they release American show on DVD in other countries? Happens all the time.
here is a link of a small pic with the South American release. Are you needing copies?
Don't worry about it! Thank you for drawing my attention to this. I wasn't aware that there was an official DVD released in Korea. It makes sense though, since like you said, they are very good quality. However I still believe mine might be a bootleg, since it was a 5 disc set with two episodes on each (which I find strange given they could of easily fit more, especially with the minimalist menus) and the designs of the DVD menus look very unofficial since it just reused the same images over and over again, especially compared to other regions' releases. However, that isn't to say it couldn't still be official. I'm not sure if you know anything about this, but on the back of my Korean DVD it has "http://www.LGkid.com" printed on the back. I went to the website before it went down last year (although it is still able to be viewed here using the Wayback Machine) and I can confirm my same Little Clowns of Happytown DVD I had was listed on there. I'm not sure if the listing was archived by the Wayback Machine or not since I don't have the URL for it anymore, but I can confirm it did exist. After further looking through the site it seemed pretty clear to me that the website just reeked of being a bootleg distributor. Of course, I could be wrong, but just given the amount of cheap looking DVDs they had on there and the lack of any info I could find on them, it just seemed apparent to me that this was likely a bootleg distributor. Is this what the cover of your copy looks like? (Sorry for the low quality, I plan to make scans of my own copies once I get the chance)
Also, could you please make an account for this forum? I'd like to be able to private message you from now on. (If that's alright with you, of course)
