The status of the KTLA series is unknown; brief footage is known to survive through 1972 CBS promos.
In 2000, a search of New York's WCBS-TV found both the first two seasons (restoring the 686-episode run) and the entire series of Spin-Off (which replaced Joker in 1975). A clip from a January 1974 "celebrity week" was used during the network's anniversary special CBS At 75. The show is currently held by Sony Pictures Television & CBS Television Distribution.
The 1977–1986 syndicated episodes exist, and were rerun (along with some of the first CBS season) on GSN.
The 1990s version is held by StudioCanal via its acquisition of the library of Orbis Communications, which distributed this version. US TV rights are currently licensed to CBS Television Distribution.
USA Network reran episodes of the Cullen era from April 1, 1985 to April 24, 1987. It also aired the 1990 revival from December 30, 1991 to September 11, 1992 and March 29, 1993 to June 24, 1994.

Famous quotes containing the words status and/or episode:
“The censorship method ... is that of handing the job over to some frail and erring mortal man, and making him omnipotent on the assumption that his official status will make him infallible and omniscient.”
—George Bernard Shaw (18561950)
“The press is no substitute for institutions. It is like the beam of a searchlight that moves restlessly about, bringing one episode and then another out of darkness into vision. Men cannot do the work of the world by this light alone. They cannot govern society by episodes, incidents, and eruptions. It is only when they work by a steady light of their own, that the press, when it is turned upon them, reveals a situation intelligible enough for a popular decision.”
—Walter Lippmann (18891974)
