    Nickelodeon (ended 2004)
    Rocket Power premiered on Nickelodeon on August 16, 1999, and can now be seen weekdays at 4:30 A.M EST onNicktoons Network, and on Sunday mornings at 6:00 A.M. EST on Nickelodeon. The show is about four friends who are addicted to action and extreme sports. Otto Rocket, his sister Reggie, and their pals Twister and Sam excel at just about every aggressive sport you can imagine. Their hometown of Ocean Shores, CA is the ultimate place for a game of hockey, skating the half-pipe or rollerblading on the boardwalk. There are extreme sports for all seasons, however, so don't be surprised if you catch the kids heading up to the mountains for snowboarding, ice hockey, and all manner of arctic action. All that competition can get, well, pretty competitive sometimes. So it's a good thing folks like Otto and Reggie's dad Ray and his business partner Tito Makani are around to remind everyone that way cool friendships are more important than winning events. Main Characters Otto Rocket: Otto is the leader of the group. As they say in the episode "All About Sam", he's a total action guy. He can be selfish and overly-competitive at times, and even more unreliable, but he tries to be a good friend, and more often than not, he does a pretty good job at it. He's also "rad" on wheels, waves and powder, and he plays a mean game of hockey! Reggie Rocket: Reggie is Otto's older sister, by two years. She's awesome at sports, and at times, she can be as competitive as her younger brother. She can be a little bossy sometimes, but she really doesn't mean to be. She is mostly the one who keeps Otto down to earth when he gets a bit too self-centered, and there are times when she acts as his conscience. So there's a lot more to this action-loving girl athlete that what she can do with a skateboard, a surfboard, a hockey stick, and a laptop. Maurice "Twister" Rodriguez: Twister is Otto's best bro. He's totally rad with his video camera, which he uses to tape all the extreme stunts he, Otto, and Reggie do. He's a little bit slow on the uptake, but in a totally sweet (well, the girls on this site think that) and comical way. Samuel L. "Squid" Dullard: Sam is probably the least extreme of the group, but that doesn't make him any less awesome. He's Reggie's best bro. He helps her publish her Zine on his laptop. Sam is pretty much the brains of The Rocket Gang, but it's his fear of risks that helps to keep the gang from going too far. Ray "Raymundo" Rocket: Ray has done a lot of things in his long life. But if the kids get into some trouble, they get a big punishment! Other then that he's a really nice guy. Tito Makani: Tito is a native of the beautiful state of Hawaii. He is really nice guy. He gives the "little cuzzes" Ancient Hawaiian advice and help with surfing. Sometimes he can go a little overboard with what he's doing, but it all comes out ok. From March 26 to April 8, 2002 a contest and show called Maximum Rocket Power Live: The Battle For Madtown Park where teams would compete in extreme sports like the Rocket Gang did. It got cancelled due to low ticket sales. It was supposed to tour cities all over the Midwest. The Show ended after the TV Movie episode "The Big Day" on July 30, 2004.moreless

    Dream On

    Dream On

    Follow
    HBO (ended 1996)
    Dream On is an adult situation comedy about Martin Tupper, whose life is full of colorful characters. While Martin goes on numerous dates, he still has time for his family and best friend (Eddie Charles). Martin, played by Brian Benben, is divorced from Judith, but they remain friends (though, her unseen "perfect" husband annoys Martin). Martin and Judith jointly raise their growing teenage son (Jeremy).
    Judith (Wendie Malick, who later starred on Just Shoot Me, and Jake in Progress) a psychologist, married the "perfect" man, Dr. Richard Stone. Despite their break-up, Judith is quite supportive of Martin, and leans on him herself, when the need arises.
    Jeremy (Chris Demetral) seems to accept the place he finds himself (divorced parents, new husband for mother).
    Eddie Charles (played by Jeff Joseph in the first season, and by Dorien Wilson afterwards, Wilson later starred in The Parkers) is Martin's best friend, a ladies man, and a host of his own talk show. The talk show was intended to be serious but has morphed into a "this week lawyers in lingerie" type show.
    Martin (Brian Benben) works as a book editor for a small New York book publisher, Whitestone. Working for him is Toby Pedalbee (Denny Dillon; executive assistant). Toby has a strong personality and knows what she wants. Martin has several bosses in the early years, but when the Australians buy Whitestone, Martin is saddled with Gibby Fiske (Michael McKean). Gibby likes selling books, not literature.
    Martin reacts to the world around him through flashing back to hundreds of clips from all manner of old films and television shows (from MCA), which are used as metaphors for Martin's reactions (hence the title). MCA approached HBO about creating a show that used old MCA clips, and Dream On was the result. Dream On is renowned for its use of sexual references, plus, in its early seasons, occasional swearing and numerous scenes of female nudity.
    Creators other Creations David Crane & Marta Kauffman also created The Powers That Be (1992, David Hyde Pierce), Family Album (1993, Giovanni Ribisi), Friends (1994), and Veronica's Closet (1997, Kristie Alley).

    Hang Time is basically just another teen coming-of-age sitcom. The twist here is, however, that it focuses on a boys basketball team with one female team member. The show is generically the same as the rest - same jokes, same gags, same characters, touches on the same issues - but it is one of the best of the genre. In fact, the series was continuosly the highest rated Saturday morning series on NBC's teen line-up.moreless

Kodocha is directed by Akitaroh Daichi, who also directed Fruits Basket. In the US, the English dub was covered by Funimation, and stars Laura Bailey as Sana, and Jerry Jewell as Akito, and many of the familiar voices from Fruits Basket and other Funimation shows. With the American voice acting and sound, the show takes on a fresh appeal despite being a series from the 1990s. Sana Kurata, 11 years old, is living a superb childhood. She is the star of a popular TV-series (Kodomo no Omocha / Child's Toy). Her mom is an award-winning novelist, and she calls her manager Rei her driver, boyfriend, and pimp, even though she has no idea what that last word means. Sana is enjoying life to the fullest, except for the hassle in her cIass. A gang of boys have turned the cIassroom into chaos, preventing the teacher from doing anything but cry. Sana is very irritated about this problem, and confronts the rash but smooth talking boss monkey, Akito Hayama, doing everything she can to stop the ruckus that upsets her life and studies. But as she becomes more involved in Akito's life, she realizes that everything isn't as black and white. Akito's family isn't perfect, and it turns out her family has some secrets as well. Sana and Akito encounter new incidents and people that mix up their lives even further, growing their friendship, and possibly a relationship?

    (ended 1981)
    After the success of Sesame Street in 1969, Muppet creator Jim Henson wanted to have a chance at his own series. In 1974, Henson shot a Muppet special called The Muppets' Valentine Show, which would later become a precursor for The Muppet Show. The special starred famous muppet, Kermit the Frog, with a cast of new muppets including: George the Janitor, Droop the Anteater, Crazy Donald (later named Crazy Harry), Brewsters the oldtimer, Mildred the goose, and Rufus (later named Muppy). Many of these characters were used during the first season of The Muppet Show, and quickly faded away to background characters. The special featured actress Mia Farrow, who taught the muppets about love, and that everyone loves something. Afterwards in 1975, Henson shot the failed pilot for the Muppet Show: Sex and Violence. Amazingly, Kermit the Frog was not in the pilot at all! Instead, the host was wimpy, Nigel, who Jim Henson wrote out of the show soon afterwards. After about a year, the muppet team went to the United Kingdom and were given the green light for the Muppet Show. The show became one of the top syndicated comedies of all time! The show featured a new group of Muppet characters including: Fozzie Bear, Miss Piggy, Gonzo, Scooter, Beauregard, Rowlf the Dog, and The Electric Mayhem. Each show featured a celebrity guest star, who were either personal friends of Henson, or his manager. The Muppet Show lasted for 5 years, and 120 episodes, two spin offs, and several movies. Theme Song: It's time to play the music It's time to light the lights It's time to meet the Muppets On the Muppet Show tonight It's time to put on makeup It's time to dress up right It's time to raise the curtain On the Muppet Show tonight Why do we always come here I guess we'll never know It's like a kind of torture To have to watch the show And now lets get things started Why don't you get things started It's time to get things started On the most sensational Inspirational Celebrational Muppetational This is what we call the Muppet Show!

    Sports Night

    Follow
    ABC (ended 2000)
    Sports Night ran nearly two full seasons on the ABC network in the United States during the '98-99 and '99-00 seasons. Created by Emmy Award winning writer/director, Aaron Sorkin (A Few Good Men, The American President), this was his first venture into television. Smart, fast-paced, witty and featuring a fine ensemble cast, Sports Night struggled in the ratings from the start, particularly during its second season, when it was routinely pre-empted and moved from night to night. Art imitated life imitating art, as the show-within-a-show took on a consultant (William H. Macy, in his first TV role since his stint on ER), hired to "tweak" the ratings. The show-within-a-show continued to falter, amidst rumors of the imminent sale of its network and the subsequent gutting of its staff. Upon its cancellation, several networks, most notably HBO, came to Sorkin for a possible move to the respected network, but nothing was ever solidified. Sports Night gained additional exposure through a subsequent syndication on Comedy Central.

    TBS (ended 1995)
    Two Stupid Dogs follows the lives of two dogs, the overly excited Little Dog(the dachshund) and easy-paced Big Dog(Brad Garrett from "Til Death" and "Everybody Loves Raymond")-the sheepdog. These crazy canines don't know how to fit in the world, and they definitely don't have any know-how. They often find themselves in commonplace situations (going to the drive-in, walking through the mall, working on the farm), some not so common situations (stuck on a space shuttle, a contestant on a game show, getting mistaken for the prime minister), and even in some familiar situations (Little Red Riding Hood, Noah's Ark, and Hansel and Gretel). But no matter the situation, their stupidity usually leads them to calamitous results. The show also featured various returning characters. Hollywood was a big burly man who is always saying "Well isn't that cute, but it's wrong!". Red as the little girl from the Red Riding Hood story on her way to granny's house. Cubby is the nerdy guy who is very passionate about what ever occupation he works at. And finally Kenny, the neurotic school child who's afraid of everything and is always nervous. Each episode included two 10 minute episodes of 2 Stupid Dogs and one episode of Secret Squirrel shown between the two. 2 Stupid Dogs first aired in September of 1993 and last aired in January of 1995. 2 STUPID DOGS and all related characters and elements are trademarks of Hanna-Barbera. 2 STUPID DOGS is now airing Monday-Friday at 7:30am and a repeat airing at 5:50pm on BOOMERANG (Channel 297 - DirecTV). There are also airings on Saturday and Sunday at 5:30pm that are different from the episodes aired during the week. Start times on Saturdays sometimes vary by 5 to 10 minutes.moreless

    Clueless

    Clueless

    Follow
    ABC (ended 1999)
    Based on the 1995 hit film of the same name, Clueless is a popular half-hour American sitcom. The show aired for three seasons between 1996 and 1999. Clueless began life as part of ABC's popular 'TGIF' strand, but after it had finished it's first run, the network decided to cancel the series. It was a decision they would later regret, when it's re-runs proved a huge ratings winner, even competing with the incredibly successful Sabrina The Teenage Witch. Rival network UPN promptly capitalized on ABC's mistake, and the series found a new home where it aired for two further seasons. In a change to the movie, Rachel Blanchard plays the well natured and complicated, yet, as the shows title suggests, clueless teen soul Cher Horowitz. But many of the movie's cast return to reprise their characters, including Stacey Dash as Cher's sexy, confident and sassy friend Dionne Davenport. Set in the wealthiest parts of Beverley Hills, the show profiled the many loves and lives of Cher and her friends, all equally as rich, pretty and charming as her - all, that is, but the rude and self obsessed Amber Mariens (Elisa Donovan). Without her mother around, young Cher must travel through the trickiest times - those oh-so awkward teenage years - with the guidance of only her friends and father (Michael Lerner, Doug Sheehan). Joining her on her journey, are Murray Duvall (Donald Adeosun Faison) and Sean Holliday (Sean Holland) who more often than not, find themselves getting into trouble, not doing enough to help or generally just getting it very wrong. As the show developed, and the character's developed, the writing changed. From the relaxed, confident and slow pace of the first season, to the quick, sassy, off-the-cusp and celebrity-reference filled style of the second and third seasons, enter to a new and faster style of editing for the final two seasons with some hillariously well-timed sound effects and musical scores that complimented the jokes with style. Despite all it's good points, Clueless fell victim to the UPN axe and was cancelled in 1999. But the show has now gone into syndication across the world to a brilliant response, most notably from the United Kingdom and the USA. Clueless - one of the late great teen-orientated sitcoms of the '90s. When Can I See Clueless? If you're in the US, you can watch complete re-runs of all three seasons on The-N, Monday Through Thursday at 8pm & 11pm. Fans in the UK can see the show on Digital Satellite Network Trouble, Moday to Friday at 18.00 and 22:20.
