    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

    The New Casper Cartoon Show was a Saturday morning cartoon show that ran on ABC from 1963 to 1969. It starred the famous friendly ghost Casper. Casper first appeared in his own cartoon shorts made for theaters in the 40's and 50's by Famous Studios. Many of these theater shorts later appeared on TV from 1959 to 1961 as part of the Sunday cartoon series "Matty's Funday Funnies" on ABC. On "The New Casper Cartoon Show", Casper appeared in newly made-for-TV cartoon shorts. Appearing in the Casper shorts were his supporting cast members: Wendy the Good Little Witch; Spooky, Casper's ghostly practical joking cousin; Nightmare the Galloping Ghost Horse; and The Ghostly Trio, Casper's fiesty ghostly roommates who constantly critized Casper for being friendly and not scary.

    Other shorts on the show were films that were originally made for theaters by Paramount Cartoon Studios. These shorts were called "Modern Madcaps". Casper had 2 shorts per show and one "Modern Madcap" in-between along with bumpers between each short and a next week's promo segment. In the Fall of 1969, the show was retitled, "The New Adventures Of Casper", but then the show was cancelled in December of that year. On the TV show, Casper's voice was provided by veteran cartoon voice actor Norma McMillan. Animator Seymour Knietel, who directed most of Casper's theater shorts, also directed this TV series.moreless
