CBS/Fox Club "Yippee Ki Yay, MF!"

IMG 0449

I thought I would start a new club for these.  I really love these uniform spines and they made VHSs for a lot of studios for most of the 80s.  I try to stay away from the different colored spines myself but as you can see I couldn't pass up Fawlty Towers and Die Hard.  Last Rites has a different font but doesn't look totally out of place.

I found these at Goodwill and Traderbakers today.  I've heard good things about Broadcast News.

I found these at Goodwill and Traderbakers. I had never seen the drawer style box on For Eyes Only.  Pretty Cool

I already watched Iron Eagle and Twelve O Clock High.  Iron Eagle is one terrible movie.  Not what I was expecting.

Drawer style are quite old (pre 1984 I believe).  I have a few from different movies, it seems when stuff was re-released (or maybe in the same print run) that the cover art was the same for the drawer boxes and the traditional sized slipcovers.

Does the I Love Lucy have the grey/blue spine?  I was wondering if any CBS/Fox TV shows had the normal cases.
