    Gummi Bears

    NBC (ended 1990)
    Long ago, there was a thriving civilization of small humanoid bears called Gummi Bears. Possessing powerful magic and advanced technology, this race coexisted with humans until the growing rivalry forced the Gummis to flee across the sea, leaving only a small caretaker colony to prepare for a possible return. However, generations passed and the colony forgot their purpose even as human knowledge of the race faded into mere legend. All that changes when the colony meets a boy with a Gummi Bear medallion which unlocks the Great Book of Gummi which reveals lost knowledge of their past. Now the colony has dedicated themselves to the new goal to rediscover their heritage with the help of a few trusted humans while preventing new enemies like Duke Igthorn from exploiting that heritage to their own ends. Gummi Bears was part of what many consider Disney's "Golden Age" what that actually means is that is was when Disney had quality writers, characters, theme songs ect ect. Some other shows that were part of this time were The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Talespin, Ducktales, and Darkwing Duck The Gummi Bears had many secrets. All were built by the Ancient Gummis and a few by the present Gummis. Some of their many inventions and creations were Gummiberry Juice, Great Book of Gummi, Gummi Medallion, Quick Tunnels, Quick Cars, Mole Machine, Magical Gummi Statue, Ursalia Aqueduct, Long Range Quick Cars, Gumarine, Air Ship, Ursalia Horn, Gummi Scope, Wind Turbines, Great Quilt, Black Knight, Flying Machine, Gummi Dummy, The Oracle, Gummi Necklace, Changing Hat, and much much more! Disney is now releasing the animated programs to DVD with the first being Gargoyles (Last December) and then on November, 8, 2005 Disney will release a 3 DVD boxset of Duckales and Chip 'N Dale Rescue Rangers. Rumor is Gummi Bears will be paired up with a DVD box set of The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. Both sets will have a suggested retail price will be $34.99, so knock 30% off that at the register.moreless

    The season after the original Saved by the Bell series ended, Peter Engel Productions and NBC rolled out Saved by the Bell: The New Class, also set at Bayside High School but featuring a new group of young actors, with original cast members Dennis Haskins (Principal Richard Belding) and Dustin Diamond ("Screech" Powers, who came along in season 2) providing some continuity. Although it never was as popular as the original series, The New Class had enough staying power to last for seven seasons, providing an anchor for the Saturday morning "TNBC" (teen NBC) lineup, even with its necessarily revolving-door cast, which featured a lot of bright and attractive young actors. Reruns have been shown on the USA Network for a number of years, but as of August 2001, they are not scheduled anymore.moreless

    UPN (ended 2000)
    Malcolm McGee (Malcolm-Jamal Warner) is a responsible and sensible 20-something who ends up sharing a Kansas City apartment and a business venture with relentlessly enthusiastic tow truck owner Eddie Sherman (Eddie Griffin). A fast talker with outlandish frenetic energy, Eddie's charming schemes always seems to get the two into hot water. But no matter what the situation, these opposites always end up bailing each other out -- even if they drive each other crazy. When the guys unexpectedly became recipients of a considerable sum of money, Malcolm and Eddie decided to buy not only the old Irish pub below their apartment, but the entire building, including Eddie's garage, as an investment. As new bar owners, the guys gave the place a facelift by turning it into a sports bar and renaming it McGee's. There, they hang out with local regulars, including Tim (Jaime Cardriche), a gentle giant working as a male nurse, and Nicolette (Karen Malina White), the motor-mouth police academy cadet with a love-crazed obsession for Eddie. As Malcolm manages McGee's and Eddie tries to bolster his fledging one-man/one-truck towing operation into a fleet, success for these two could be as simple as staying out of trouble.moreless

    Victor Meldrew, a man who, put simply, is annoyed by every one of life's 'challenges' and when forced to take early retirement, he suddenly has plenty of time on his hands to rage against the petty annoyances of life and the people in it. Victor (Richard Wilson) has more than his fair share of complete and total idiots causing mayhem in his life and they always seem to culminate together to form one huge, disastrous conclusion that inevitably leaves Victor uttering his most famous catchphrase; "I don't believe it!" His long-suffering wife, Margaret (Annette Crosby), tries her best to cope with Victor’s rantings but, at the end of the day, she knows that deep down he has a heart of gold and wouldn’t want to have him any other way. Other regular characters are neighbours, Patrick Trench (Angus Deayton) and his wife Pippa (Janine Duvitski), who always seem to be on the wrong end of a misunderstanding with Victor, 'Family' friend Mrs Warboys (Doreen Mantle), who usually adds to Victor's despair, and Nick Swainey (Owen Brenman), a kind hearted eccentric fellow next door whose bizarre antics are the only thing that makes Victor speechless. • One Foot in the Grave was written and created by David Renwick and was produced and broadcast by the BBC. • The shows theme song was written, composed and sung by ex-python Eric Idle. • The show came 10th in the 'Britain's Best Sitcom' pole in 2004.moreless

    Mathman, your mission is to explore the Square One TV guide at TV.com. You will explore the guide, taking in the details about the show and contributing any information you may have about the show if you so desire. But beware the evil Mr. Glitch. He will eat you if you navigate away too quickly. Square One TV was a PBS series dedicated to making math fun. Airing daily on most PBS stations, this show was full of pop-culture parodies, great music, excellent skits and so much more. Much like The Electric Company, a celebrated phonetics series of the 1970s, Square One TV went from one concept to the next. The series had occasional celebrity guests, such as talented musicians and even magician Harry Blackstone. Legendary announcer Gary Owens became a regular in the second season, voicing Lt. Dirk Niblick, who helped his friends understand certain sales traps. The most recognized element of Square One TV, appearing at the end of each episode, was "Mathnet," a parody of the show Dragnet. Each Mathnet case lasted for one week (or five episodes) of the show and featured detectives George Frankly and his partner Kate Monday (Pat Tuesday in Seasons Four and Five) solving a fictional crime through the use of math. A big part of Square One TV seemed to be its devotion to The University of Michigan. Pac-Man parody Mathman wore a Wolverines helmet; programs in the third season made estimates based on the Michigan Stadium; Lt. Dirk Niblick's mother was a Michigan fan, and so on. It was all within reason: Square One TV's executive producer, the late David D. Connell, graduated from The University of Michigan in 1953 and the show's senior producer, Jim Thurman, is from the UM class of 1957. Square One TV was a production of the Children's Television Workshop, known today as Sesame Workshop. Some major changes came to the show in Season Four: the opening theme music and credits as well as the closing credits were changed, many new segments were added and the Mathnet series moved permanently from California to New York. The series was continued till the end of its fifth season and then canceled, much to the disappointment of its many fans. The show continued in repeats on most PBS stations until 1994 and then left the airwaves pretty much entirely... until it was picked up by the satellite/cable station Noggin. But Noggin took the show off along with a bunch of other Sesame Workshop shows in May 2003, so now Square One TV isn't on any station any more. Special thanks to Brian Hilley for information on segments that Noggin cut out when they showed the program. Noggin also aired some episodes of "Mathnet" on a program called Phred on Your Head. Still looking to watch some Square One TV? Look for online videos, check your local library (including any inter-system loan setup they may have) and GPN --- a great resource for this and other classic shows, including Ghostwriter and 3-2-1 Contact. Note: Square One TV only showed credits at the end of each five-episode run. Guest stars will be credited, to the best of the editor's abilities, for only those episodes in which they appeared, but special crediting notes (such as actors credited by a different name) will only be shown for every fifth episode. Special thanks to RantinAnton and Curtis Olmsted for their help in adding information to this guide. May the math be with you!moreless

    NBC (ended 1993)
    Welcome to the The Torkelsons [aka Almost Home] guide at TV.com.

    This show was a comedy about a sensitive 14-year-old girl who's mortified by her crazy-quilt unorthodox family. Dorothy Jane just wanted to be thought of as normal, like any teenager, but had a hard time doing so. Her father had walked out on the family and they were always short on money. Her perky, optimistic mom, Millicent, saw sunshine everywhere. The rest of the family consisted of brothers - athletic Steven Floyd and studious Chuckie Lee, and sisters - spunky Ruth Ann and cute Mary Sue. They lived in a big rambling house in Pyramid Corners, Oklahoma. The name for the show came from a real Steven Floyd Torkelson who shared his bug collection and a first kiss with a little girl named Lynn Montgomery. She grew up to create the show some 30 years later.

    The series, which appeared on NBC, apparently turned out to be too down home for most people as it never found much of an audience in its original Saturday night timeslot and even less of one when it was moved to Sundays. After a second hiatus the series was revamped to return in February 1993 as Almost Home. For the new series the family moved to Seattle, WA [expect for Steven Floyd and Ruth Ann - who were wrote off and never mentioned again], where Millicent took a job as a nanny for two spoiled teenage children of widower Brian Morgan.

    The new season, which mostly pitted conservative family values against liberal family values, did not do any better in the ratings and was cancelled after 13 episodes.

    Season One Theme:

    People say God looks out for the working man Sure hope he's looking out for me These empty pockets need a helping hand Kitchen table's full of family

    But then the sun comes up [sun comes up] And the moon is shining big and bright And the new day promises [promises] That everything will be alright

    And the new day promises that everything will be alright.

    Season Two Theme:

    Just when you think you've settled down And you feel like you're almost home Just when the wheel starts spinnin round Love sneaks in with a plan of it's own

    Love comes in unexpected places Life turns in unexpected ways I swear we'll laugh, at these days [at these days] Love comes in unexpected places Life turns in unexpected ways

The Mayor - The Mayor is the evil villain in Action League Now!!!. He may be the mayor of a town but he wants to take over the world! The Mayor always tries to get the Action League in danger like getting their heads chopped off in a fan.
