Stay away from talking boats, Kids

This one goes out to Monster of the Id:

Holy hemiola, we put up with some poor production values when we were kids.  But they just don’t make theme songs like they used to.

And then there were the Bugaloos where Saturday morning kid shows met Jefferson Airplane.  Yeah, while you early boomers were frolicking in the mud at Woodstock and burning your draft cards, this is what we were watching over our bowls of Captain Crunch.  Nothing bad will happen, all the kids are doing it.

  1. zOMG. Sid and Marty Krofft. They warped my little mind. (In a good way.)

  2. Lidsville FTW.
    Charles Nelson Reilly!

  3. Perhaps ironically, I never watched HRP. My favorites were the classic cartoons, especially the Looney Tunes. :)

  4. HRP is a gateway drug, play it safe and stick with filmation.

  5. The witch was trying to steal the boy’s magic flute?

    Paging Dr. Freud… :twisted:

    Although sometimes a magic flute is just a magic flute. :mrgreen:

    I never watched the Bugaloos, either, but the song is a nice little piece of bubblegum psychedelia. :)

  6. Who remembers Gumby?

    • (Though I’m not sure how I feel about Gumby. I remember not-quite-enjoying it but, rather . . . . watching it for the weird-out effect).

      • I used to watch Gumby before going to elementary school. Clokey was great. If you want some obscure pro-christianity pablum to cut with your Gumby, how about Davey and Goliath or Jot.
        Wiki ‘em

  7. The Partridge Family. The Brady Bunch. hahahahahahaha — omg. Yeah, the bottom vid. Look at the hair, for one thing.

  8. I never saw Bugaloos before or even heard of them. Strange stuff, stranger than Max Headroom. LSDTV indeed.

    Wasn’t Witchiepoo played by whomever it is that played the Wicked Witch of the West in The Wizard of Oz? If so, sheer genius.

  10. This one’s almost a year old, so y’all’ve probably already seen it:

    • hmm.. so much more advanced than the Sesame Street I grew up with. All I remember are skits like the chef wiping out on the stairs (after learning numbers). I wonder if the kids even know what esteem means, idk.
