Several hit TV series of the past, including WKRP in Cincinnati, The Wonder Years and Beverly Hills, 90210, have not been released on DVD because they contain popular music on their soundtracks and the producers did not purchase rights to use the songs for home-video, the Wall Street Journal reported today (Friday). Owners of the shows have since learned that relicensing the rights now is either too expensive or too difficult to negotiate. Sony has produced DVD versions of four seasons of Married ... With Children, but without the theme, Frank Sinatra's Love and Marriage, because it was unable to reach a licensing deal for it, the newspaper said.
