    ABC (ended 1961)
    Outside the known is irreality, and one step beyond that is Surrealism. John Newland introduces reported cases of supernatural phenomena, whose poetry is revealed in magnificent and almost brutally compressed dramatizations. One Step Beyond was mainly filmed at M-G-M Studios, Hollywood, and partly at M-G-M British Studios, Borehamwood, Herts. It premiered nine months before The Twilight Zone, and was also known as Alcoa Presents: One Step Beyond. All episodes are directed by Newland himself, a dab hand whose trademark is subtle, balletic camera work. This series fed the nation's growing interest in paranormal suspense in a different way. Rather than creating fictional stories with supernatural twists and turns, this program sought out 'real' stories of the supernatural, including ghosts, disappearances, monsters, etc., and re-creating them for each episode. No solutions to these mysteries were ever found, and viewers could only scratch their heads and wonder, "what if it's real?"moreless

    The New Scooby-Doo Mysteries is the sixth of many short-lived and lesser-known Scooby-Doo shows. But this show is basically the same as Scooby And Scrappy, except that there is a new beginning song and before that Scrappy talks about what the episode is about. In this spinoff series, Daphne assumes Fred's position as leader (Fred and Velma only appear in a few episodes in this series), a tremendous departure from the days of "Dangerprone Daphne". Shaggy, Scooby, Scrappy, and Daphne solve mysteries under the pretense of being reporters for a teen magazine. The theme song is also new, sung in the same style as Michael Jackson's hit Thriller with a row of monsters doing the "Thriller" dance in the opening sequence.
