    Journey to the Center of the Earth

    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

    ABC (ended 1966)
    A Flame in the Wind made it's debut on ABC daytime on December 28, 1964 and ended almost two years later (under the name A Time For Us) on December 16, 1966. The show was set in the fictional community of Haviland (Could be almost ANYWHERE, presumably in the Midwest, and NO, it's NOT Haviland, Kansas!) and was basically centered around the Skerba, Farrell, Austen and Reynolds families. At first, the action was focused on Kate Austen, Haviland's wealthiest widow, who was writing a MAIN STREET-esque novel (some would say a roman a clef) about Haviland's people and their troubles. Sounds like she had too much time on her hands! Quite understandably, some of Haviland's most prominent citizens did NOT like the idea that Kate was writing about them and were they MIFFED! They were working overtime to stop the publishing of their dirty laundry. Hence her publisher, Craig Reynolds stopped it. Since HE and his unhappy wife, Roxanne Farrell, were one of those who were made mention of in said novel! Eventually, and perhaps, inevitably, Kate and her son Chris, [Richard Thomas]) left Haviland for greener pastures. Nobody shed any tears for them! They were all too relieved! However, Kate's former mother in-law, Louise Austen remained in Haviland as a friend and confidante for Jason Farrell who was saddled with a fliartatious wife, Leslie. With no Kate Austen, Miriam Bentley became the town gossip. However, on June 28th 1965, the show had gained a couple of changes. A show title change (it was now called A Time for Us), and a surname change for one of the core families. It seemed that the Skerbas, which was considered to be a quite ethnic name, was changed to the more Americanized, Driscoll. This change, thereby, succeeded on two fronts. It was successful in eliminating the class conflict that had been a part of the show. And in essence, gave the Driscolls somewhat equal footing with some of the other prominent folks in Haviland. Construction foreman Al and homemaker Martha (Skerba)Driscoll's two daughters, Linda (an aspiring actress living in NYC, who dated her director, Paul Davis) and Jane (who remained behind in Haviland and fell for and married her sister's ex-boyfriend, Craig Reynolds), became the core of the show, and young love was more focused on. One highlight was that Linda Driscoll went up against Roxanne Farrell Reynolds for the love of Doug Colton, a piano player who was more interested in Roxanne's money. Again, Linda lost out, since Roxanne married the man! Martha (Skerba) Driscoll was left out of all the fun, sadly, since she was only support for Al, Linda and Jane. Sadly, the plots were not enough to boost ratings! The show had ended it's run on December 16, 1966. Many of the stars were later seen on other shows. Richard Thomas, who played Kate Austen's son, Chris, of course, was later seen as John-Boy Walton on the Waltons; Jane Elliot (the second Linda[Skerba]Driscoll) was later seen as the quite nasty Tracy Quartermaine on General Hospital and the City. (In between, she was crazy Carrie Todd Marler on Guiding Light) A Time for Us (as A Flame in the Wind is best known as) served as the first ever soap appearance for Leslie Charleson (who played Pam and many years later turned up as Tracy's sister-in-law, Dr. Monica Bard Webber Quartermaine on GH) and Margaret Ladd (who was the first person to play Linda's more sensible sister, Jane) eventually went on to have MORE fun in playing Jane Wyman's daughter, Emma Channing, on the prime-time soap, Falcon Crest.moreless

    ABC (ended 1966)
    Hoppity Hooper, the cartoon frog from Foggy Bog, Wisconsin, was the creation of Jay Ward (of Rocky and His Friends fame). A similar-looking amphibian character originally debuted in an episode of "Fractured Fairy Tales," and the frog was later modified to headline a series when the re-packaged Bullwinkle Show (the NBC name of ABC's Rocky and His Friends) was cancelled in 1964. Each story arc of Hoppity Hooper consisted of four segments airing over two weeks, usually centered around the schemes of the greedy huckster Waldo Wigglesworth (a fox), his dim companion Fillmore (a bear), and the innocent but lovable frog Hoppity Hooper. The Adventures of Hoppity Hooper (later called The Uncle Waldo Show) was packaged with the same feature cartoons as other Jay Ward series and was later syndicated through the mid 1970s. However, the title character never achieved the lasting fame of Bullwinkle, Rocky, Dudley Do-Right, or Mr. Peabody.moreless

    Two children, a boy and a girl, raced on a studio sized game board. Players moved along the game board according the number dictated by a flashing display. The display was stopped by another child whenever the host cried, "Ready. Presser Press!" One child was the sole presser in the first season; two children shared the duties in the second season. The object was to be the first to arrive at the Finish by exact count. Both children received prizes but the winner was award more prizes. Along the way, the children would participate in stunts and contests to win Shenaniganzas, the show's currency. In the first season, Shenaniganzas could be traded for prizes. In the second season, Shenaniganzas were exchanged for Top Value trading stamps. These exchanges were made off-camera. Shenanigans was sponsored by Milton Bradley. Several of the game publisher's games were featured during the broadcast. "Where's Willie?", "Operation", and "Time Bomb" were worked into the gameplay in the second season. Milton Bradley published a home version of Shenanigans which was prominently displayed during the show's closing credits. The home game continued to be in its catalog a decade after the series was cancelled. Broadway veteran Stubby Kaye was host.
