NOT on DVD: Ringo Starr 1978 TV special

Officially titled "Ringo," this show is sometimes called the "Ognir Rrats" special, since it featured the former Fab playing a character by that odd name (his own moniker spelled backwards), as well as himself.

Basically an excuse for some songs and comedy bits featuring Ringo and friends, the special had a very loose "Prince and the Pauper"-type plotline, with an unhappy-with-fame Ringo swapping places with a down-and-out doppleganger.

Guests included Ringo's old pal George Harrison along with John Ritter, Angie Dickinson, Mike Douglas, Art Carney, Carrie Fisher and Vincent Price.

You can probably score a cruddy bootleg DVD or videotape of the show on eBay. I also found it, in two chunks, on the Web:
