    Charles Schulz's classic comic strip Peanuts started in 1950. Fifteen years later, A Charlie Brown Christmas debuted. When The Little Christmas Special that Could proved to be an unexpected success, the stage was set for successive television specials. To date, over forty have been made. The Charlie Brown specials focus on one round-headed kid, his goofy but intelligent beagle, and their vast array of friends. Each has distinctive qualities: Lucy, the crabby, self-proclaimed psychiatrist; Linus, the blanket-toting theologian; Schroeder, the Beethoven worshiper whose black piano keys are only painted on; Peppermint Patty, the tomboy whose affections toward "Chuck" are only outweighed by her sports abilities; and so on. The wit, the charm, the pleasantness of these specials make them appropriate not just for children, but for the whole family.moreless

    Characters: BABAR: King Babar is a charming and charismatic elephant. He brought his love of the city back to the great forest and built the beautiful, happy kingdom of Celesteville. Though he is a dedicated ruler and world traveller, Babar is happiest when picnicking at the lake with his family or joining in the antics of his lively children.

    CELESTE: Queen Celeste has also travelled the world and has had many great adventures. She has a regal presence, an engaging manner and a gentle sense of humour. The children adore their mother. After an active day with the family and governing the kingdom, Babar and Celeste enjoy watching the stars together from the palace veranda.

    OLD LADY/ MADAME: From their first meeting in the city, the Old Lady and Babar shared a special friendship. She gave him a home and taught him about life in the city.

Babar built her a home in Celesteville, where she made the decision to stay and live with her friends, the elephants.

    FLORA: Flora is fun-loving and strong-willed. She can more than hold her own with her two brothers. Whether building tree houses, sliding down the banister at the palace, or preparing a surprise breakfast for their parents, Flora is always immersed in the action.

    CORNELIUS: Cornelius, the oldest and wisest elephant in Celesteville, takes his job as Babar's chief advisor very seriously, whether accompanying Babar on state visits or organizing numerous Celesteville parades. When not working, Cornelius can often be found relaxing in a field with a butterfly net.

    POM: Pom is the leader of the children. He is the biggest of the bunch and protective of his brother and sisters though he will gladly join in with Alexander in playfully teasing his sisters, Flora and Isabelle.

    ALEXANDER: Alexander, the smallest of the triplets, is a non-stop ball of entertainment who is into everything and disarmingly naive about the commotion he causes.

    ABC (ended 1990)
    Mr. Belvedere began in March of 1985 and aired on ABC. It was a spring replacement series and yet another family sitcoms from the 80's joining the ranks of The Cosby Show, Family Ties and Who's the Boss?. Mr. Belvedere centered around the Owens family who lived in suburban Pittsburgh. George Owens was a sports writer and his wife, Marsha was a homemaker/law-student. They had three children, 16 year old Kevin, 14 year old Heather and 8 year old Wesley. The series began when it got to the point where Marsha couldn't handle the household anymore with her studying so she placed an ad for a housekeeper. This is where Mr. Lynn Belvedere steps in. Mr. Belvedere was an English housekeeper whose previous employers include Winston Churchill. Although hesitant, George and Marsha hired him and he instantly becomes one of the family, even giving the kids advice on how to solve their problems when they need it. At the end of each episode, Belvedere would write an entry in his journal concerning the situations that occurred in each episode. The series lasted five years and was even canceled in 1987 only to be renewed by ABC. The series followed Marsha through law school and into her first job as a lawyer, Kevin through high-school and into college and Heather and Wesley through puberty. In 1990, the series was canceled and in the finale, Mr. Belvedere leaves the Owens household after getting married. The series was based on the novel Belvedere written by Gwen Davenport which was later turned into three movies of the late 40's and early 50's, in which Clifton Webb portrayed Mr. Belvedere.

    3-2-1 Contact

    3-2-1 Contact

    Follow
    PBS (ended 1988)
    The product of three years' development, 3-2-1 Contact™ (B. 1980 D. 1988) stands as the third-longest-running series ever produced by the Children's Television Workshop (as it was then called). Its premise was to bring the world of science, and all its excitement, to middle-school students, particularly girls and minorities. Through seven seasons, various hosts traveled around the world to find science in everything. Over the years, features such as clever animation, biographies, and the detective series The Bloodhound Gang were included. Complementing the series for middle-school students and teachers alike was 3-2-1 Contact magazine, edited by Jonathan Rosenbloom. In the first season of 3-2-1 Contact, three hosts – Lisa, Marc, and Trini – met at a regular set, called the "workshop," to discuss their scientific adventures. It looked every bit the science equivalent of The Electric Company, with loads of animation and regular celebrity segments. But the stars of the show were Lisa, Marc, and Trini, going off on scientific adventures (some of which were repeated numerous times throughout the season). The Bloodhound Gang, produced by Daniel Wilson Productions, featured wonderful mysteries (most written by Sid Fleischman) related to whatever theme 3-2-1 Contact was devoted to that week. The Bloodhound Gang, not to be confused with that musical act of questionable behavior, was a smart team of apprentices for the Bloodhound Detective Agency in (by all looks of things) Kenilworth, New Jersey. The gang consisted of Vikki, the super-observant leader; Ricardo, the photographer/amateur magician; and a younger member. The first season was divided between Zach and Cuff, both of whom ran the detective agency CB. After three years of rerunning 65 programs, CTW gave 3-2-1 Contact a new format for Seasons 2 and 3. Very little material was recycled within these programs, except for adventures of The Bloodhound Gang. A new team of characters – Robin, Kathy, Miguel, and his ten-year-old brother Paco – brought a new element of reality to the series. Their set was an average basement. Another co-star, Jackie (played by Liz Gorcey) appeared only on location. Biographies of scientists, a sporadic studio element of Season 1, became a weekly feature in the second and third seasons. These new biographies always were filmed on locations where the scientists worked. The Bloodhound Gang returned with a new member, Skip. In contrast to Zach and Cuff, who one observer said just hung around, Skip was the computer whiz who complemented Vikki and Ricardo immeasurably. Season 4 relied more heavily on location work. All the hosts returned, as did two new ones, Mary and Diego. Studio shots were limited to "color" sequences featuring Paco and his new partner, Mary. All installments of The Bloodhound Gang (not seen during Tropics Week, Episodes 126-130) were held over from Season 3 since, sadly, Marcelino Sanchez (Ricardo) had been diagnosed with the cancer that would take his life in November 1986. Season 5 marked a transition of the cast members. Robin, Miguel, Mary, and Diego appeared only during Motion Week (Episodes 156-160). Paco was the only mainstay from the previous three seasons (he was absent from Episodes 151-155). But the most significant aspect of Season 5 was its co-production between CTW and FR3, a French public television network. With English and French versions in full swing, 3-2-1 Contact became one of the first shows to air on TVOntario's new La Chaîne Française (now TFO) when that network signed on in January 1987. The Bloodhound Gang mysteries were again recycled segments from Season 3. Season 6 introduced a new opening sequence. It also revisited old sequences (mostly from Seasons 1 and 2). In fact, Architecture Week (episodes 176-180) featured a great deal of sequences rescued from Building Week in Season 2, which had aired for the last time just months before. The Bloodhound Gang was totally absent for the only season in the show's history. Season 7 leaned more heavily on Stephanie Yu, a factor that would prove to drown out the team concept. Also deterring the team was Season 7's reliance on more elaborate location theme weeks featuring one performer. Reruns of The Bloodhound Gang re-emerged briefly if for no other reason than to ensure that all participants from the old mysteries would get their space in the show's crawl. Production funds for 3-2-1 Contact were provided by: • The National Science Foundation (all seasons) • U.S. Department of Education (all seasons) • Corporation for Public Broadcasting (all seasons) • United Technologies Corporation (Season 1) • The Arthur Vining Davis Foundations (additional funding in Season 2) By the time production of the regular series ended in 1988, CTW began producing a succession of 3-2-1 Contact Extras, which have a separate page at TV Tome. Some of these Extras are still being sold by a company called GPN, which also holds audiovisual rights to the sequel series 3-2-1 Classroom Contact. CTW (renamed Sesame Workshop in 2000) withdrew a total of twenty 3-2-1 Contact programs between 1986 and 1990 inclusive, before the entire series was dropped by PBS October 2, 1992. To this day, 3-2-1 Contact™ and the logo are trademarks and service marks of Sesame Workshop, © 1980-1988. Reruns briefly surfaced on Noggin, then co-owned by Nickelodeon and CTW, when that network signed on January 31, 1999. (Programs seen on Noggin have been identified with the letter N in the production codes column.) On occasion, Nickelodeon rebroadcast selected 3-2-1 Contact programs as part of their Cable in the Classroom project. But after a short run in great time periods, this and other CTW series were given less convenient time periods in the ensuing months. Ultimately, 3-2-1 Contact was taken permanently from all airwaves in the spring of 2003. This does not, however, prevent some people from trying to raise awareness in the original 3-2-1 Contact series. To this end, The 3-2-1 Contact Awareness Society at Yahoo! was created November 6, 2004.moreless

    Somewhere in the world, there is a workshop owned by a an inventor named Doc and his Dog, Sprocket. While Doc spends his days coming up with new ideas, Sprocket is peering into a large hole in the baseboard. He knows that something lives behind the wall. Through the hole and down the tunnel, hidden from everyday reality, are brightly lit caves filled with wonderful creatures. This land, bound together by Magic, is called Fraggle Rock. The most notable of the creatures who inhabit this beautiful place are the Fraggles. Fraggles are furry, have tails, and come in all sorts of colors. The Fraggles spend their days laughing, splashing, running, singing, playing games, and telling jokes. They live by a simple care-free code. Aside from the Fraggles, two other main species of characters are prominent. The Doozers are small, green ant-like creatures who live to work and spend their days building crystalline structures around Fraggle Rock - to which the Fraggles enjoy eating. Outside of Fraggle Rock live a small family of giant Gorgs. Pa and Ma proclaim themselves as King and Queen of the Universe, and their son Junior loves to spend his free time chasing and catching Fraggles, especially since they love to pick the radishes out of his garden. Beyond the Gorgs' garden lives Marjory the Trash Heap and her two rat buddies, Philo and Gunge. She is considered to be the Fraggles' all-knowing oracle and they seek her out from time to time to gain valuable advice.moreless

    CBS (ended 1990)
    Muppet Babies was a very successful cartoon series in its own right. This show basically featured Jim Henson's famous Muppets as babies. Each episode, each of the Muppet Babies had adventures that their imaginations take them on. Often however, their imaginations would sometimes get the better of them, all for comic effect. Since Muppet Babies first hit the airwaves in 1984 it was instantly a favorite of its demographic. However, the show had appealed to viewers of all ages, child, teen, and adult. Let's face it, the 80's was a time of change, technology, and adventure. Muppet Babies was no expectation. In a decade when most television shows promoted a toy line or clothing this show had nothing at all to sell, no gimmick, just pure education. Now here is a little tidbit about the iconic Muppet Babies which was a very successful cartoon series in its own right. This show basically featured Jim Henson's famous Muppets as babies. Each episode, each of the Muppet Babies had adventures that their imaginations take them on. Often however, their imaginations would sometimes get the better of them, all for comic effect. The featured Muppets were Baby Kermit, Piggy, Fozzie, Gonzo, Rowlf, Animal, Scooter, and a new character, Skeeter, Scooter's look-alike sister. Occasionally they had visits from Baby Bunsen and Beaker, and even Statler and Waldorf came to visit, and later we see a recurring appearance by a "baby" version of Bean Bunny from Tale of the Bunny Picnic. The moral glue that held these Muppets together was Nanny (voiced by Barbara Billingsley of Leave it to Beaver fame), a character whose body was only shown from the waist down and we all remember the green striped socks. The one thing that made the Muppet Babies memorable were not the Muppets themselves, but the live action that was inter-cut with the cartoon action (consisting mostly of film and TV clips, etc). Also, the Muppet Babies were inspired by a small scene in the 1984 film, "The Muppets Take Manhattan". In 1986, the show was extended to an hour to accommodate another cartoon series Little Muppet Monsters, and then in 1987, new episodes were shown with repeats of previous Muppet Babies episodes. Little Muppet Monsters After the huge success of Muppet Babies CBS decided to expand the series by adding an extra half hour which was to be filled by a new show called "Little Muppet Monsters". The whole hour would be dubbed "Jim Henson's Muppet's, Babies and Monsters". The mixture of live action puppetry and animation featuring Muppet characters proved too much and the show was pulled by Jim Henson, after only two shows had aired. After the end credits and logos were shown, there was an ending segment in which eventually Animal shouts "Gooooooooo bye-bye!". Reruns were shown on Nickelodeon through the early to mid 1990's on Nick. Jr at 10:30 - 11:00 A.M. In 1997 Nick Jr stoped airing re-runs to acominadate the new series Franklin Some of the first Nick Jr shows that aired with Muppet Babies were [show]The Busy World of Richard Scarry (9:30-10:00 a.m. and 1:00-1:30 p.m.), Allegra's Window, Little Bear, Gullah Gullah Island Also on the NICK JR. schedule are Rupert (10:00-10:30 a.m.), Jim Henson's Muppet Babies (10:30-11:00 a.m.) and Papa Beaver's Storytime (1:30-2:00 p.m.).

Muppet Babies taught lessons to children in many ways. The most powerful was through song. An example if from an episode in which Kermit does not know what he want to be when he grown up. Be be be what you want to be Do do do what you want to do Be be be what you want to be It's up to you wo-wo-wo-woah SCOOTER: Be a pilot and go for a flight Take us all to dinner in your jet some night PIGGY: Or be the first farmer in history To figure out a way to grow an ice cream tree ANIMAL: "Yummy" GONZO: What about an international spy?

Such shows include Baby Looney Tunes, Tiny Toon Adventures, The Flintstone Kids, The New Archies, A Pup Named Scooby Doo, Yo, Yogi, and Tom and Jerry Kids. Six of these shows were made in between 1984 (Muppet Babies) to 1990. Characters: Kermit: He is none-other then a small green frog with a big imagination. He is the leader of the group and his best friend is Fozzie. Frequently he has his famous gulp when things are not going as planned. It usually goes something like this, "Oh boy..GULP!" Fozzie: Wacko, Wacko, Wacko! Is what Fozzie frequent expresses after one of his jokes. Most jokes he says are actually not funny, but he has high spirits of becoming a comedian. Miss Piggy: This little piglet has a huge crush on Kermit the frog. She expresses her passion and love for him in many ways; verbally or emotionally. Her dream is to be Mrs.Kermit (while Kermit actually does not have the same "feelings" for her that she does for him. Gonzo: A mystery is right here on what this little guy is. Some thing he is a cross-over between a monkey and alien, but who really knows!? He has a huge crush on Miss Piggy and hopes that he and her will have kids someday. Gonzo sometimes gets a little annoying to the group, but he finds some way to make it up to them! Rowlf: A musician in the making. You hardly even seen Rowlf without playing his white piano. He is more of they shy type, but finds it easy to express himself through songs. He is more of a loner, but he is a great friend to all the nursery children. Animal: Many ask what kind of animal he is, but no one knows. He is a loud non speaking Muppet who is very energetic. Many times you will see him hanging on the nursery chandler while playing hide and seek. At the end of many episode he will have the last word weather is is an action or a big hearty laugh. Nanny: What oh what would the nursery be without her supervision? She teaches lessons to the Muppet Babies through tough-love, but they always get the point. We never learned what she looked like beyond her neck. She is famous for her green and white striped socks that only the babies were able to see. Nanny is always there for the young children whether they need a lesson on life or a "boo-boo" to be kissed. Airing Information CBS: September 15, 1984 to September7, 1985 as Muppet Babies.

Disney has already started releasing their animation library of television shows i.e Ducktales, Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers, Gummi Bears, Talespin, Darkwing Duck, and Gargoyles. The problem is that Muppet Babies featured many clips from various movies which have an expensive price due to copy rights. If you like this show you will also like Baby Looney Tunes. "Go bye-bye!

    Jim Henson's The Storyteller

    NBC (ended 1988)
    "When people told themselves their past with stories, explained their present with stories, foretold the future with stories, the best place by the fire was kept for the storyteller." The Storyteller, shown in 1988, starred John Hurt as the Storyteller and with the help of Jim Henson's Workshop of muppets, actors, voices and costumes as well as visual effects, brought a new dimension to television. Nine stories were shown in this series, which was followed a few years later by Jim Henson's The Storyteller: Greek Myths. This series was to feature some of Britain's finest actors of the time and some who would propel themselves into the international limelight within the next few years. Sean Bean, Jane Horrocks, Brenda Blethyn, Dawn French, Jennifer Saunders, Joely Richardson, Bob Peck, Alison Doody, Gabrielle Anwar, Jonathan Pryce and Miranda Richardson all appeared during the show's short run. The real stars of each episode, however, are The Storyteller and his dog, voiced by Brian Henson. Please note that the synopses in the episode list and the episode guide detail most or all of the story for that episode and will spoil the shows if you are planning on watching.moreless

    M.A.S.K., the cartoon, was brought to us by the people at DIC Enterprises, Inc. It aired between 1985 and 1988 as far as I know.

The cartoon focused mainly on the vehicles and characters from the original 1985 toy line. Later on, there were also some appearances from some 1986 vehicles. (Interestingly enough, I don't think they ever made a toy of Shark, a vehicle that was seen on the cartoon quite a bit...) The last season of the show apparently featured a racing theme to correspond with the racing series M.A.S.K. toys. I have seen most of these episodes however.

    Nickelodeon (ended 1988)
    The World of David the Gnome was based on the world famous children's books The Gnomes and The Secret of the Gnomes by Dutch authors Rien Poortvliet and Wil Huygen. David the Gnome, and his wife Lisa, were peace loving Gnomes who lived in a tree. They probably reminded more than a few children of their grandparents. David would travel around on the back of his trusty fox, Swift, who he would summon by whistling. Overall it was a very interesting show which taught children to enjoy and respect nature and the world around them. This 26 episode series came to the U.S. airwaves in 1988, running weekdays on Nickelodeon, and was later rebroadcast from 1996 to 1998 on The Learning Channel. It was narrated by Christopher Plummer, of The Sound of Music and The Insider fame.moreless

    (ended 1982)
    This animated sci-fi retelling of the Greek poet Homer's epic poem, "The Odyssey", was a French-Japanese co-production originally produced in 1981, with animation from premier Japanese animation studio TMS (Tokyo Movie Shinsha). The series was originally envisaged as being 52 episodes long, but production difficulties cut back the number of episodes to 26. The show was written by the French writing team of Nina Wolmark and Jean Chalopin, before being animated by TMS in Japan. Many of the show's key Japanese staff came from the very popular (in France as well as Japan) anime, Rose Of Versailles (Lady Oscar), although the original director, Tadao Nagahama died after production of the first episode, leaving the remaining directors to carry on in a similar style. Some of the show's mechanical designs were also created by Shoji Kawamori and Studio Nue, the famed creators of Macross. Although the show's worldwide debut was on September 12 1981, on Luxembourg's RTL channel, France's FR 3 (the first 'official' home of the series) was not far behind in showing the series. In the mid-1980's the show was given a very respectable and mature English dub by DIC, courtesy of Jean Chalopin and the cast and crew at Multidub International in Montreal, Canada. In the USA, the show was shown in syndication from September 13 1986 as part of Kideo TV a DIC-produced package of animated series such as The Get-Along Gang, Popples and Rainbow Brite (which Ulysses later replaced). The show was also shown on the UK's BBC and Channel 4 networks. Ironically, for a show co-produced by the Japanese, Ulysses 31 wasn't shown on Japanese television until February 6 1988, when a run of twelve episodes was shown there under the title of Space Legend Ulysses 31.moreless

    The Snorks

    Follow
    NBC (ended 1989)
    The Snorks were very much like their competitors The Smurfs, except that they live under the sea. The premise for the show was quite elaborate: In 1643, the captain of a ship under pirate attack discovered a tiny race of beings that lived underwater. After reaching the surface, the rescued captain shared his story of Snorks with a disbelieving world, while underneath the waves, an excited Snork by the name of Uncle Galeo was spreading the word about the surface dwellers. Cut to modern day, where the Snorks have evolved much like humans, living in similar houses and eating similar foods. The main characters of the series were teenager Allstar, his girlfriend Casey, and their pals Dimmy, Daffney and Tooter (so named because he only spoke in whistles). As one would expect, Allstar also had a wacky pet and a rival. The pet was an octopus, logically named Occy, while the rival was Junior Wetworth, the spoiled son of the governor of Snorkland. While The Snorks were an obvious attempt to cash in on the success of The Smurfs, the series was not without its own charm. Specifically, the relationship between the Snorks and the surface dwellers was very well designed, with the humans being drawn in a more traditional style to play up their "otherworldly" differences. Also, The Snorks succeeded in concentrating more on humor than on cuteness, taking the show beyond the level of mere Smurf-imitator. Snorks currently air everyday on Boomerang in the US.moreless

    (ended 1989)
    Small Wonder was a sci-fi sitcom about a family who has a robot daughter. Ted Lawson, an engineer at a huge robotics firm, brings home a project that he is working on: a robot in the shape of a 10-year-old girl. The robot was a Voice Input Child Indenticant (V.I.C.I.), but was nicknamed Vicki for short. Not only did she brighten up Ted's wife Joan, but also was a great sister to their only child Jamie Lawson. They tried to keep the fact that Vicki was a robot from the entire world, but found it difficult when their neighbors, The Brindles, started snooping around the house. What the bad part was, Brandon Brindle, the head of the Brindle family, was Ted's boss and he does his best to lie, cheat, and steal to get him further up the corporate ladder. His wife, Bonnie, was no better than he was, and his bratty daughter Harriet had a killer crush on Jamie. Jamie, however, would rather play with Reggie, his best friend and confidant than to have Harriet chase him everywhere. Jamie also tried to teach Vicki how to be a normal kid, but all she could do is mimic people and do things literally. Vicki also had an evil side to her named Vanessa, who was smart-mouthed, conniving and treacherous at times. But other than that, the Lawsons enjoyed four years of living with a robot and no one outside the family was ever the wiser, not even the ever-nosy Brindles. Small Wonder ran in syndication from 1985 to 1989 and was a ratings hit. There were talks of doing a spin-off series dedicated to Vanessa named Too Good to Be True but it died in the planning stages. Theme Song: She's a small wonder Pretty and bright with soft curls She's a small wonder A girl unlike other girls She's a miracle, and I grant you, she'll enchant you at first sight She's a small wonder And she'll make your heart take flight She's fantastic, made of plastic Microchips here and there She's a small wonder, Brings love and laughter everywhere!moreless
