Hello! A while ago a user on this forum created a project for collecting transcripts of pre-G4 shows/movies, to help ESL and HOH viewers (like me!). That thread has long been dead and sometime last year the URL on the project expired. I have PMed the user and gotten no reply, so until future notice I am considering that project defunct. However, I am here to revive it!

Unfortunately I didn't think to archive the URL because I didn't expect it to expire (it was hosted on a service called homeip, which I'm not familiar with, whereas I tend to use tumblr for this sort of thing) so I have lost all of the transcripts except some MLPnF ones, which I saved for my own use since it's my favourite of the old gen shows. Thank you to Lancer for writing these, thank you to Gusty365 and MyLittleWiki for maintaining an episode guide, and shoutout to Carrehz if you're active on here; I'd love to see the rest of your collection!

Also some general shoutouts:
Does anyone have any other transcripts, or access to DVDs with subtitles?
If anyone is skilled at turning transcripts into subtitle files, I'd appreciate your help too! I have limited experience from my youtube channel and from an obscure show fandom (EMDT), but I can't use youtube's maker because uploading full episodes would get me in trouble, and I'm not the fastest at other methods.

Rescue from Midnight Castle/Firefly's Adventure
Escape From Catrina
My Little Pony: The Movie
Season 1:
The End of Flutter Valley
The Ghost of Paradise Estate

Season 2:

Any and all help appreciated!

I have The Movie, the complete classic series, and Tales all on dvd with captions. I don't always have lots of time right now to re-watch, because my life is a bit hectic currently. But maybe I could help?

Thanks @RomanticPrincess! How do you feel about DRM removal? I could walk you through it if you don't have the tech savvy, but if you're morally opposed, I'm not sure you can help, lol! I don't believe it hurts the DVD at all, but it might void the warranty on your player.
(ftr I do have DVDs, but the european ones don't have subs, and don't have every episode)

I'm not sure how to work computers like that... But! I don't mind sitting down and typing out on my computer a transcript of both verbalization and brief explanations of actions taking place on-screen (like one of those descriptive video things). I've been thinking of doing this for awhile actually, but if other people would be interested too, it may give me extra motivation to get on it.

I'm also totally willing to do manual transcription. :) I've watched all of the episodes so many times for my youtube channel that even with my SPD I understand every word. But first I'm looking into other avenues that are less labour-intensive, like extracting SRTs and compiling transcripts from other users.
Is that a hard no on the DVD extraction method, then? Or would you be willing to give it a try with instructions?
