For this time of year, it would be great to see a classic holiday channel (same for each holiday as they roll around), giving a chance for many of the vintage specials, both animated and live action, that haven't been seen outside of YouTube for years to reach the airwaves again.

Easy: Game Show Central Classic. Time for a dedicated channel for all of the Sony owned game show properties.


ITA.  Iím actually surprised that Sony-owned game shows arenít available.  In available, I mean on Pluto.  The last I checked Barry/Enright creations are still available.  For Merv Griffin creations, Wheel I think is out there.  It would be nice to have Jeopardy available, especially next year for those who would rather not tune into the show without Alex.  Of course, thatís easier said than done, but that aside, I would love for there to be a classic Game Show Central sooner rather than later

Ditto. Sony has a huge catalog of Merv Griffith/Sony, Barry-Enright, Bob Stewart and Chuck Barris games not to mention other smaller companies I might have left out. The channel could be easily paired next to Buzzr. Totally shocked it hasn't happened yet.

Edit: Does Sony on the rights to Kilne and Friends? It would be nice to see the daytime and nighttime versions of Win, Lose or Draw again.

-Sesame Street

-Classic ABC TGIF shows

-The Simpsons (Especially the '90s)
-Looney Tunes

For Sesame Street, Most TGIF shows and Looney Tunes, you would have to go over to either HBO Max or to Netflix.  For the Simpsons you would have to go see Disney+ for exclusivity.

What I would love to see on Pluto TV even though it's not available here in Canada would be the Star Wars Holiday special, Droids and Ewoks.

It would be nice to get a channel dedicated to all the MTV programming that has disappeared into the voids due to music clearance issues. Headbangers Ball, MTV Oddities, Remote Control, Loveline, Beavis and Butthead, etc. Their archive is massive and mostly lost amongst collectors.

The New $25,000 Pyramid, including the 1984 and April-October 1987 episodes that GSN didn't show.

I'd even include shows like Club MTV, Postmodern, 120 Minutes, Dial MTV, weekend concerts, classic Top 20 Video Countdown episodes, the short-lived game show Turn It Up, Singled Out, Liquid Television, and even MTV News broadcasts to see the talent in action. Yes, we have MTV Classic, but its just videos for the most part (no offense to MTV purists, but there was a lot of great specialty programming back in the '80s/'90s).

And speaking of which, their legal clients (OpSec Online) target my Internet Archive account for their 1986 VMAs. It seems like with IA's recent revamp, I fear that more and more digital clients will target more properties/users. It doesn't have a strike system and works similar to Dailymotion in terms of suspending accounts based on an undisclosed number of removals, but MTV/Viacom was a big reason why my old Dailymotion account got suspended about two years ago. But for now, tape trading/file sharing seems to be the only viable option at this time.

But of course I'd love to see a classic Dick Clark Productions channel, including AB, Where The Action Is/Happening, specials, and perhaps even Pyramid as well.
Now open for tape trading! Please PM me for an offer with a list included.

I'll third Late Night with David Letterman. Those haven't been rerun anywhere for about 15 years apparently. I know Dave didn't like the reruns competing with attention for his main show, but that's no longer an issue. Pluto should definitely focus on series with really long runs that can't realistically be made available on disc.

I would also love Richard Dawson Family Feud. Buzzr's certainly aired a generous helping of that era but I'd guess it's still a small fraction of the combined day time and night time runs. It'd be good for a Pluto channel to focus on night time since I think Buzzr's barely touched those.

I noticed the Johnny Carson channel on Pluto has edits in the episodes, seemingly for time. Where in the middle of an interview, it'll just fade out and in to remove some of the chatter. I'm not sure why, since Antenna TV airs the episodes seemingly without edits.

What about a classic Feud channel altogether? Ie: Dawson and Combs day and night? I could see that working.

And as to Carson, I wonder if they're using old copies, like Turner Classic edited stuff like they once used in small clips, or DVD/YouTube based material. I got nothing otherwise though.
