    WELCOME TO THE IMMORTAL AT TV.COM! Ben Richards works as a test car driver. He is a young, handsome man with no cares in the world. His life is turned upside down after he donates a pint of blood. The doctor tells him that there's something different about his blood. Nothing "wrong" -- to the contrary, Ben's O negative blood contains antibodies and immunities that make him totally immune to everything, including old age. The billionaire who gets his donated blood is brought back from the brink of death because of those antibodies. He learns of Ben's blood and, as the effects of the transfusion wear off, decides he must control Ben's life so that this rare gift will be available any time he needs it. Ben is offered everything in exchange for becoming the billionaire's private fountain of youth. He rejects the offer but finds himself imprisoned. He escapes and is forced to go on the run, leaving behind his job, his home, and his financee. Even after the billionaire dies, Ben is not safe: Fletcher, an employee of the deceased, recruits a new billionaire. Fletcher is given a blank check and the job of finding Ben Richards. While looking over his shoulder for Fletcher, Ben is also on the lookout for his brother, Jason. The two were orphaned and separated as teenagers. No one knows if Jason's blood also possesses these miraculous antibodies. Ben only knows he has to find Jason before Fletcher does.moreless

    Married attorneys on opposite sides in the courtroom find it difficult not to bring their work home with them in this romantic comedy series based on the classic Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy film Adam's Rib. Assistant District Attorney Adam Bonner (Ken Howard) frequently clashes head-on with his wife, Amanda (Blythe Danner), a junior partner in an established law firm. But no matter how heated their arguments, Adam and Amanda never lose sight of their deep and abiding love for each other—even as they continue the hilarious, never-ending battle of the sexes that has raged ever since God created Eve from Adam's Rib. This show was created by part of the team responsible for the hit broadway musical "1776" - Director Peter H. Hunt, and Writer Peter Stone; and featured two of its stars, Howard and Danner - who had played Tom and Martha Jefferson in the play. This series was the next project the four worked on after completing the 1776 film in 1972.moreless

    ABC (ended 1974)
    The ABC Saturday Superstar Movie was a unique 1 hour Saturday morning cartoon series which ran on ABC from 1972 to 1974. This series was part of a concept by ABC, for the 1972 -1973 season, to make Saturday mornings "primetime for kids" (just like that season's "The Brady Kids"). "The ABC Saturday Superstar Movie" consisted of hour-length animated stories with a different story and cast each week. The head of this series was Hanna-Barbera Productions, who also produced the opening and closing theme songs to the series. This show was the first Saturday morning series to have different stories supplied by different animated studios. Most of the "Movies" were comedy-mysteries and most of them were animated versions of primetime shows such as "Lassie", "That Girl", and "The Brady Kids" (which was also a half hour Saturday morning series that same season). For the 1973 - 1974 season, the name was changed to "The New Saturday Superstar Movie", but only 3 new "Movies" were made (mostly because the price for making one hour cartoon shows at the time was $300,000 per one hour).

    The Brady Bunch Hour

    The Brady Bunch Hour

    Follow
    ABC (ended 1977)
    "The Brady Bunch Hour" began as a 60 minute special titled "The Brady Bunch Variety Hour" produced by Sid and Marty Krofft which aired on ABC on November 28, 1976. The success of this special led to a semi-regular series of which eight additional 60 minute episodes were produced and aired from January to May 1977. None of the installments, known herein as "The Brady Bunch Hour" were ever repeated on network television. It was not until twenty years later in 1997 that all nine episodes were rerun (in their entirety and commercial-free) on the Australian cable network "TV1, Television's Greatest Hits". The American based cable networks Nick-at-Nite and TV Land also aired a handful of episodes during the 1990's, but with large portions edited out. Overall, "The Brady Bunch Hour" is by far the most rarely seen Brady series. The premise of "The Brady Bunch Hour" is hard to understand. The Brady family was chosen to star in a variety show on ABC. They left their familiar two story home somewhere in southern California for a place on the beach. (The first installment had a completely different livingroom set from both the rest of the installments and the original series.) The series includes not only "the variety show on ABC," but also the behind-the-scenes doings of the Bradys as they go about making their variety series. There were also some sketches which were more or less a continuation of the original "Brady Bunch" episodes and which had nothing to do with the "ABC variety series." Unfortunately, the seams between the two modes are not clear, and this results in continuity errors such as Rip Taylor playing a character named Jack Merrill on the variety show, but the Bradys also know him as Mr. Merrill when they're not on TV, and the Bradys announce him as "our own Rip Taylor" in the opening and closing. It is not always clear what the Bradys are doing or what audience they are playing to. The writing of this series was not in sync with the character development of the original series. The most glaring example of this is that Bobby seems to have been transformed into an ultra-capitalist, super-precocious, insensitive jerk. Fans of the original show will instantly recognize this error. The other Brady children, noteworthy in television history for being three-dimensional, have largely become one-dimensional parodies of themselves as well. Marcia's lines relate solely to being an overbearing, bossy twit. Greg's thoughts usually revolve around music, Peter's around girls. Cindy says little except to fight with Bobby. Ironically, the character who is most one-dimensional in the original series, Jan, takes on a completely new life here, perhaps inspired by the new actor who plays her in this series. Specifically, Jan is featured as a singer here more than any of the other Brady children except Greg. Her interest in music here is a notable change. In the original series, as well as most of the sequel shows produced by the Schwartzes, and especially the theatrical features, Jan is stereotyped as the "emotional middle daughter," whose main activity is being jealous of Marcia. The adult characters are also off-balance. Mike, who is usually very sober, even somber, but always professional, in the original Bunch, has become a complete wimp and loser here. Carol has become the true head of the family, as opposed to her "we'll have to wait to see what Mike thinks" demeanor in the original Bunch. (Strangely, both Robert Reed and Florence Henderson said that this series was their favorite Brady experience. The actors who played the Brady kids generally hated "The Brady Bunch Hour.") The main feature of the set of the variety show is a swimming pool, populated by the Kroffette Dancers and Water Follies (the same women fulfilled both roles), who did synchronized swimming routines while the Bradys sang and danced on stage. The evolution of the show's creation is an interesting story. On October 8, 1976, Florence Henderson, Maureen McCormick, Mike Lookinland, and Susan Olsen appeared on an episode of "The Donny and Marie Show" which included a skit parodying the soap-opera "Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman." Carol and the kids are seeking a replacement for Greg who moved to Milwaukee while trying to get a date with Laverne & Shirley (Donny is suggested for the role by Marie). The episode scored blockbuster Nielsen ratings and then-president of ABC Television Fred Silverman decided to showcase the Bradys in their very own variety show. Without the knowledge or consent of Paramount Pictures or Sherwood Schwartz, who owned the rights to the"The Brady Bunch", Silverman contacted "Donny and Marie" producers Sid and Marty Krofft who agreed to create a pilot for the new show. "The Brady Bunch Hour" was reluctantly authorized by Paramount at the last minute and in part as a means to maintain/create audience interest in syndicated reruns of the original show. (Ostensibly, Brady creator and principal copyright holder Sherwood Schwartz did not want to deprive the Brady cast of their new jobs and so went along with the Kroffts.) As a result, nothing that happened in these episodes is considered canonical. That is, none of the events that transpired here affect the continuity of the original cast of "The Brady Bunch" in their further revivals, namely "The Brady Girls Get Married," "The Brady Brides," "A Very Brady Christmas," and "The Bradys." (Or for that matter, any dramatizations of the original cast that are to come.) At no point in any of those productions did anyone say, "Remember the time we starred in that variety TV show and moved to the beach?" The books written about "The Brady Bunch" provide only minuscule information about this series. The most complete guide, contained in "The Brady Bunch Book" by Edelstein & Lovece, omits three of the nine installments entirely. This guide written for the Internet is the most complete reference ever produced about this series. The cast of "The Brady Bunch" returned intact for "The Brady Bunch Hour" with the exception of Eve Plumb, who was replaced as Jan by Geri Reischl. The only new character in the series was that of Mr. Jack Merrill, a jack-of-all-trades played by Rip Taylor. Ann B. Davis reprised her role as Alice in each installment as a "special guest star."moreless

    After Olympic fever swept the nations, especially the United States in 1976 (the nation's bicentennial), the worldwide sporting competitions would be sorely missed until 1980, as well as 1984, when the U.S. would be the host nation for the Summer Games. Fortunately Hanna-Barbera provided a worthy substitue in animated form as up to 45 of their cartoon characters (classic and otherwise) were featured on this show competing for the gold medal. While some events were similar to real-life Olympic events, most were pretty offbeat and quite unusual, and could only be done on cartoons like this. Among these weird events were racing on ostriches, camels, kangaroos, rickshaws and unicycles, as well as scavenging for creatures like the Abominable Snowman, vampires, and the Loch Ness Monster. With events like these, each Laff-A-Lympic was bound to be a major adventure! As indicated, up to 45 of Hanna-Barbera's characters were featured in this classic series. They were divided into 3 teams: THE SCOOBY DOOBIES are the coolest assembled team of crime fighters and mystery solvers. They were featured in various shows that debuted in the late 1960's to mid-1970's. Here are the team members: Team Captain Scooby-Doo, with longtime sidekick Shaggy (from several Scooby-Doo series), and cousin Scooby-Dum (featured in only 4 episodes of The Scooby-Doo Show). Dynomutt, Dog Wonder (from the same-titled show), and superhero companion Blue Falcon. The World's First Superhero and his mystery-solving sidekicks Dee Dee, Brenda, and Taffy of Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels. Speed Buggy (featured in the same-titled series) and his mechanic sidekick Tinker. Babu, the bumbling apprentice genie, featured in Jeannie. Hong Kong Phooey, featured in the same-titled show. THE YOGI YAHOOEYS consist of the wacky animal characters featured in hundreds of shorts from several series that originally aired from the late 1950's to the early 60's. Originally featured on The Huckleberry Hound Show, Yogi Bear's popularity exploded into the latter decade and was the lead character of his own show in 1960, as well as various spinoff shows well into the 1970's. Laff-A-Lympics, however, was a rare exception since Scooby-Doo's popularity began skyrocketing from this decade on well into today. In this show, Yogi was a secondary character though he indeed had significant screen time. Below are his team members: Team Captain Yogi Bear, with sidekick Boo Boo, and co-stars from his series Yakky Doodle, and Yogi's on/off girlfriend, southern belle Cindy Bear. Huckleberry Hound, along with other co-stars from his series, Hokey Wolf, Pixie, Dixie, and Mr. Jinks. Quick Draw McGraw, with his co-stars, detectives Snooper and Blabber, and son and father duo Augie Doggie and Doggie Daddy. Wally Gator, originally featured in The New Hanna-Barbera Cartoon Series (1962). The Great Grape Ape, the 40-foot purple gorilla, featured as part of H-B's Tom and Jerry Show in the mid-70's. THE REALLY ROTTENS are the ultimate team of cheats. Unlike the other teams, they obviously resorted to cheating in efforts to win, either by sabotaging their opponents' chances to win, or with whatever other dirty tricks they had up their sleeves. Of course, they rarely got away with with their efforts and were usually penalized in the form of point deductions. It's really no surprise that they always ended up with the bronze medal in most episodes. The majority of Rottens were featured only on this show. The lone exception was team captain Mumbly, who like Grape Ape, was featured in H-B's Tom and Jerry Show. Ironically, he was the good guy in his segments since he was a relentless detective. But since he has many similarities to Muttley from The Wacky Races, it was reasonable to make him just as conniving as the shaggy mutt sidekick to Dick Dastardly. Speaking of Dick, he seemed to be the basis for Dread Baron, a pilot and Mumbly's devious sidekick. This pairing was just as similar since they competed (and usually cheated) in most events together. The rest of the Rottens are listed below: The Dalton Brothers: Cheating cowboys Dinky (the big one), Dirty (short with dark hair and moustache), and Dastardly (short with blond hair). Mr. and Mrs. Creeply, and their son Creeply Jr. Sort of resembled the Gruesome family on The Flintstones. Their descendants, perhaps?!? Included in their bizarre family is their creepy pet Orful Octopus, who can provide 8 times as much trouble with his tentacles at any given time. The Great Fondoo (a bad magician whose poor-quality magic usually does his team more harm than good) and his Magic Rabbit. Daisy Mayhem (a bad, barefoot, yet spirited hillbilly girl with a lot of split ends in her hair) and her eyepatch and sneaker-wearing porcine pet, Sooey Pig. Other stars featured in this fine series were Snagglepuss (featured on The Yogi Bear Show) and Mildew Wolf (featured in the It's the Wolf segments of The Cattanoga Cats Show) as the show's commentators, as well as Flintstones stars Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble, and Jabberjaw (from his self-titled series), who made occasional appearances to either explain the rules and/or judge particular events. The main objective for each team in this series was to score the highest number of points in four events (sometimes more) in two locales to earn the gold medal. The majority of events had the simple scoring process of 25 points for the winner, 15 for second, and 10 for third place. There were occasional 50-point bonus events which could help a team get back into the competition or pull them well past the others depending on whoever was trailing or leading at the time. While the Scooby and Yogi teams played fairly most of the time, you could always count on the Rottens to pull off some major cheating to wreck the other teams' chances of winning. With rules and regulations, however, they very rarely got away with their dirty deeds and only really hurt their own chances of winning. Of course, without them, Laff-A-Lympics certainly wouldn't have been the entertaining series it was, just as The Wacky Races would have been just an ordinary show without Dick Dastardly and Muttley cheating most of the time. They were clearly the stars of that show. But unlike the terrible twosome, the Rottens actually did win a couple of times, which proved if they kept trying, their efforts would pay off. Overall though, everybody featured on the show were winners as were William Hanna and Joseph Barbera for this great addition to the 1970's Saturday morning schedule. Scooby's All-Star Laff-A-Lympics is among many Hanna-Barbera shows that air on Boomerang from Cartoon Network.moreless
