GoodTimes Entertainment was a bargain bin home video company founded in 1984. It distributed TV shows, movies (both classic and contemporary) and lifestyle programs. The Kids Klassics division was formed to distribute children's programming. It also distributed budget priced releases from the Universal Studios and Columbia TriStar catalogs. The company went bankrupt and closed down in 2005 and the assets were sold to Gaiam, Inc. In 2007, GoodTimes Entertainment was folded into GT Media. These are the warning screens used by the company.
