Let Fox know you want to see "Bailey Kipper" on DVD!
Colinwhitefan, if you're reading this - although a little over a year has passed since your posting - and you enjoyed "Bailey Kipper's P.O.V." very much, then I'd like to make this suggestion: Either e-mail or fax 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment (as posted in the rules, I can't give you their e-mail address, but go to Fox's main website and it'll direct you there) and tell them you want to see all 13 episodes of "Bailey Kipper" on DVD. Fox bought out MTM Enterprises, which produced "Bailey Kipper," about the time the show went off the air (September 1997); hence, Fox now owns the show (as a result of the buyout, MTM no longer exists), and Fox would be the most likely company to distribute "Bailey Kipper" on DVD.
I do agree - "Bailey Kipper" was very funny and inventive, and it was a good alternative when "Saved By the Bell" went into repeats. I thought the episode where he was forced to audition for a play was particularly funny.
And to the other reader who said there were only 7 or 8 episodes, as I stated above the total number of original episodes was 13. This is because the network was able to show the entire series four times in order to fulfill a one-year commitment, as well as to help young viewers recognize certain plot elements whenever they saw a particular episode again (four 13-week increments make up one full calendar year, 52 weeks).
And for the record, I was in my late 30's when "Bailey Kipper" was first shown; I'd often watch it with my young niece and nephew (and it sure beat listening to all those news shows every time). So it had some appeal for us adults, too!
(February 28, 2007. Postscript:
20th Century Fox Home Entertainment DOES indeed own the rights to distribute "Bailey Kipper's P.O.V." on DVD; however, since I initially posted this comment Fox has removed their e-mail address from their website. However, I do remember the address. Please feel free to send me a private letter.
