The Electric Piper is an animated TV adaptation of The Pied Piper that aired on Nickelodeon in February of 2003. Set in the 1960s, it was about a guitarist named Sly (modeled after Jimi Hendrix) who uses his music to get rid of rats who are invading a suburban town called Hamlin. When the mayor doesn't give Sly his reward, a Harley Davidson motorcycle, he takes his revenge by convincing the children of the town to run away and join him in a mountain. It was directed by Raymie Muzquiz and written by Bill Burnett, the creator of ChalkZone. It had a voice cast including Rodney Dangerfield, Rob Schneider, and George Segal.
The movie hasn't been seen since its few initial airings on Nickelodeon, as it was never released onto VHS or DVD. Only three clips of it have resurfaced onto the internet, one of which has since been taken down. It is unknown if anyone has a full copy of the movie.
Until a user on reddit posted a message claiming he had spoken to the film's director. Apparently the poster was told that he had a copy he can't release for legal reasons. Though he hopes to release it online.
