CharlieBravo & I have a mountain of pics between us including all pics from Paul's site, I'm sure one of the 2 of us can provide replacements. 

Hey, that would be great...the only folder I seem to have lost is the BJ folder, if had I lost everything I have saved over the years it wouldn't have been fun at all. :unsure:
I managed to copy everything else to another of my hard drives for safety.

If one want's to keep up with what the new owner of the Movin' On truck is doing to it he goes by the name "Sundance" on the American Truck Historical Society forum, "Sundance" was the CB call sign for the Movin' On truck in the TV show.

I find it strange that this didn't get the AMT re-issue. everything else seemed to. It is the same with a dvd release. Universal says there is no market for it to warrant a release, yet Movin' On got a dvd release. There has never been any TV or cable reruns including most of the world for many years...

Something strange seems to be going on with BJ and the Bear. Maybe it's just me but it seems to still be quite popular and has a definite niche/cult status. It had the Hot Wheels release but hardly accurate and comes up in a lot of different forums in many different genres, trucker forums, Kenworth forums, modelling forums, dvd forums, 80's TV show forums for e.g but nothing from the studios at all..

thoughts?

I'm willing to bet it comes down to licensing for all of the music that was used in the show.

It took them FOREVER to get enough of the song rights to be able to release WKRP in Cincinnati on DVD, so I'll bet they're thinking they'll never be able to recoup their investment on doing that for this show. Especially nowadays when most people just stream TV shows and don't even own DVDs anymore. 

I've also noticed that younger generations don't even watch old TV shows like this. Hardly anything over 10-15 years is even available to purchase. 

Sad but true for us old fogies.
