    ABC (ended 1970)
    The New People aired from September 22, 1969 to January 12, 1970. It was on Monday nights on ABC, from 8:15 to 9:00 pm ET. It followed the only other 45-minute show ever aired, Music Scene, which was hosted by David Steinberg. The New People was an Aaron Spelling production about a group of college students who, on their way home from a cultural exchange trip to SE Asia, crashed on a deserted South Pacific island. The island had previously been used by the Atomic Energy Commission as a test site, and so was complete with buildings, cars, provisions, and test-dummy mannequins. Upon crashing all the adults aboard but one, died. The remaining adult, played by Richard Kiley, died at the end of the pilot episode, leaving the "new people" alone to create their own world, sans authority figures. Up against the most popular shows of its day, The New People didn't even last a full season. It was never syndicated, which is unfortunate for many reasons, one of them being that several now-famous actors made guest appearances on the show. Tyne Daly, Richard Dreyfuss, Billy Dee Williams and A. Martinez all took part in this island drama. The theme song for The New People was sung by The First Edition, and two .wav files of it can be found at www.tvobscurities.com/shows/new_people.html. Though short lived, The New People spawned a paperback tie-in novel titled They Came From the Sea, by Alex Steele, and two comic books. The regular cast members made appearances in the teen magazines of the day, and all went on to other acting jobs once the series had ended.moreless

    ABC (ended 1967)
    "Journey To The Center Of The Earth" was a Saturday morning cartoon show which ran on ABC from 1967 to 1969. It was made by Filmation Studios. The show was based on a 1959 movie also called "Journey To The Center Of The Earth". The cartoon series was about the adventures of a group of explorers seeking the secrets that lay in the Earth's core. At this starting point, the adventure began when the group discovered the long lost trail of explorer Arnie Saccnusson, who had managed to find Professor Oliver Lindenbrook's hidden subterranean passage that led through a labyrinth of eerie caverns to the center of the Earth. Along with Professor Lindenbrook, the small group of explorers also included the Professor's niece Cindy, her classmate Alec McEwen, their tall and muscular guide Lars, and Lars pet duck, Gertrude. Complicating matters was the evil Count Saccnusson, Arnie's last living decendant. For selfish and self-serving reasons, the Count wanted to speed up his power-mad plan to use the Earth's core to promote his own agenda to conquer the world. Saccnusson ordered his monster-looking servant, Torg, to set off an explosion to stop Lindenbrook's expedition. But instead, the explosion sealed the only entrance to the trail, entrapping them all. So both groups struggled to survive and find a way to return to the Earth's surface. The cartoon series was a hit on Saturday mornings and the show was one of the first Saturday morning cartoon shows which had a continuing story in which the entire show would end when the characters would finally find what they were looking for or finally reaching the destination they were trying to get to.moreless
