TV Classics Including “Itchy and Scratchy,” “Inspector Spacetime,” and Straight-to-DVD Film Classic “The Rural Juror” Arrive Exclusively on Hulu and Hulu Plus.

March 31st, 2013 by Mark Forbes Senior Content Partner Manager

One of the perks of working at Hulu is that I get to watch a lot of TV. Like the rest of the Hulu team, I love TV shows that draw us in every week, delight us with unexpected story twists, engage us with unique characters, and surprise us with humor and drama.

Since Hulu is always scouring the planet for the best TV shows we can offer, you can only imagine how excited we are to announce our brand new slate of classic shows now available exclusively on Hulu and Hulu Plus.

Today, you’ll be able to binge on every episode from any season of “Inspector Spacetime,” “The Itchy & Scratchy Show,” “MILF Island,” “Mock Trial With J. Reinhold,”  “Ya Heard? With Perd,” “Sick, Sad World,” “Queen of Jordan,” “Space Teens,” and “Numberwang” all in one place.

No, that one place isn’t your dreams. That one place is Hulu.

We’re bolstering our movie lineup, too. We’re proud to bring you “The Rural Juror,” winner of multiple awards worldwide including “Most Unpronounceable Film” at the Cannes Film Festival and “The Daytona High School Movie Night Participation Award.”  The seven-hour, one-part film follows Jenna Maroney as a twirler girl whose demure world, spurred by Irma Luhrman-Merman’s murder, is cured by a fervid whirl of her turgid error. It also stars Kari Whurer. We are also adding its sequel, “Urban Fervor,” to our service.

It is an honor, as well, to present to our users the entire catalogue of the beloved, ultra-violent children’s series “The Itchy & Scratchy Show.” Thanks to a laborious, day-and-night effort by our video publishing team, all 63,764 episodes of “Itchy & Scratchy” are available on Hulu and Hulu Plus starting today — with the exception of seven episodes banned by “Springfieldians for Nonviolence, Understanding, and Helping,” and one from 1934 that is too deplorable to discuss.

And get your X7 Dimensionisers ready, “Inspector Spacetime” fans! Today, you can follow all 11 Inspectors through the 51 years of the classic British TV series and its probably too intimidating catalogue. Brought back to prominence with a viral campaign by students Troy Barnes and Abed Nadir on the campus of Greendale Community College, “Inspector Spacetime” boasts a small but rabid fanbase. As always, Hulu is thrilled to align ourselves with TV shows and fans that are streets ahead.Oh, and we have acquired the rights to British math quiz show “Numberwang.” We hope to one day understand it.

I truly hope you enjoy the new additions to our service as much as we all do. Special thanks to our friends at Sabor de Soledad CheesePuffs, McDaniels, The Tracy Jordan Meat Machine, and Duff Beer for their support as official launch sponsors.

Happy watching!  4.1.13. And that’s Numberwang.

    I’m kind of disappointed. I thought huluplus will have the anime shows I wan BUT IN ENGLISH. I still have to watch ads and commercials throughout my shows. why would I want to see clips of shows? I don’t get why they included clips forhulu subscribers. I thought if I paid 7.99 a month I wouldn’t deal with these sort of issues. I might aswell surf the internet for free so get the stuff I want. pretty dissatisfied

    Is it true that after 10 episodes of All My Children and One Life To Live you will have to pay to get these shows?

  • Great new content! It’s kinda nice that Hulu keeps updating itself, it makes it more interesting and it makes me want to stay here more.

    Any chance that I’ll be able to subscribe to Hulu Plus and watch these via my GoogleTV device, in the foreseeable future?

    Just wondering if you are planning to add more I Love Lucy episodes? I see there are 6 seasons but not all episodes are listed…..For example their trip to California several of their travel episodes are missing like the First Stop, Tennessee Ernie Ford, Ethel’s Hometown. Also are there plans to add more sitcom classics like Roseanne?

    I am a member, and for the last few weeks the ads have been skipping and taking twice as long to get through. I LOVE Hulu, please if there is anyway to fix this, it would be great. Every other site runs great, so I know it’s not a PC issue. Thank you for making it easy to keep up on all of my shows!

  • Hi there,

    Thanks for taking the time to give us your feedback! I’ll let our team know you miss using RSS feeds. While I can’t speak to any future additions to our service, we definitely listen to what our users want, and I hope you’ll enjoy future updates to our site.

    Once again—thanks for the feedback!

    It’s great to see Hulu adding new content, though I would prefer to use the RSS feed instead of the blog, to see what’s new. Any chance the feeds will be fixed?
