Weird-Oh's is a short-lived Canadian animated series about these wacky characters having these wacky adventures living in this town called "Weirdsville". The main characters are Digger, Eddie, and Portia. This show is based off the 1960s Weird-Oh's toys. The series only had 13 episodes (26 segments) and three VHS tapes, one DVD release and one unaired pilot. It premiered on Fox Family in the U.S. in 1999, but got cancelled and brought back in 2000 on YTV in Canada in reruns. US distributor ADV Films in 2000 to release the entire series (excluding unaired pilot) in three videocassettes titled "Lights Camera Traction","Wheel Trouble", and "Traffic Jam". In 2005, YTV released the entire series onto DVD. Till this day all releases of this show are extremely rare to come by and due to limited production only 500 copies of each got sent into market but only in Canada.
Apparently not, Nickelodeon aired those three new episodes in 2005 and 2006 isn't available on Italian DVDs: "Munchy's Sinking Feeling", "A Shine Adventure", "Bye Bye, Weirdness..."
The only existence of the unaired pilot is this clip right here.

The cancellation of this show was due to ratings so bad the production company will never make a series like Weird-Oh's again. This should've been a great, anarchic animated TV show, but sadly it was eviscerated by network interference, In 2005, three Italian episodes are found.
