In Search of Saturday

Welcome to “In Search of Saturdays" an advertising space I’ve designed to help our members find those long-lost movies, cartoons, TV shows, toys, games and anything else that we’ve all been looking for, for a very long time.

The instructions are simple. Post your personal “looking for” list in the comments and we’ll all see if we can help you find what you’re looking for. - This will be a group effort please.

If you can’t remember the name of a show or toy that’s alright, post what you can remember and maybe someone here will be able to tell you what it is. Also, please remember that if you are listing television shows or movies please let us know if you are looking to purchase these shows or if you just want to watch them online. Then we, the members of the group, will help try to help each other and go “in search of” those items for our fellow members.

A good place to start our searches is iOffer which, in my opinion, is better than eBay because you can find lots of shows there that you can’t find anywhere else.

*** MY WANT LIST ***
This is a list of the Classic Nickelodeon programs that I’m looking for to purchase. Please note that I am a private collector who does not copy and resell my collection. The videos and DVDs that I collect are for my own private viewing here in my home or my Mother’s house where I originally watched them. If you have any of these and would like to sell me copies – for my private viewing – please contact me at Also, IF YOU CONTACT ME VIA EMAIL PLEASE PUT THE NAME OF THE SHOW IN THE SUBJECT LINE. Thank you.

Classic Nick Thur. – Matt & Jenny

 Matt and Jenny on the Wilderness Trail 1850 was better known to American audiences as simply, Matt and Jenny when it aired on Nickelodeon in the early 1980’s.

In the first episode we meet newly orphaned Matt and Jenny Tanner who have just learned that their mother has died from typhoid fever while immigrating from Bristol, England. Deciding to jump ship at the next port the Tanners are aided by a young man on the ship, but trouble ensues when they are mistaken for thieves and make a run for it.

While on the run they, quite literally, run into Mr. Adam Cardston, the gentlemen from the ship who had tried to save their mother. Mr. Cardston feels responsible for the children and decides to help them find their Uncle Bill Tanner who had arrived in Canada about five years before Matt and Jenny had. Along the way they meet a kind stranger named Kit who is a bit of a wanderer.

After trouble breaks out at the abandoned Tanner Farm Kit and Mr. Cardston decide to help Matt and Jenny look for family vowing that one, or both of them, would be with them at all times. The children agree, and together they set out to find their family.

Filmed mainly at the Toronto International Studios lot at Kleinburg, Ontario viewers are taken back to 1850’s Canada with it’s beautiful scenery. Matt and Jenny helps us all to remember to value our families whether they are near or far and is a lesson that that we should all keep very close to our hearts especially in today’s troubling world.
