    Dave's World

    Follow
    CBS (ended 1997)
    Dave's World is based on Pulitzer Prize-winning humorist Dave Barry's syndicated columns. Dave is a child of the '60s trying to survive in the '90s, confronting the absurdities of life - as husband, father and semi-responsible citizen. He muddles through with the help of his wife, Beth, who's weary of being the responsible one; sons Tommy, 12, and Willie, 8; his college buddies, Kenny, whose claim to fame is that he records books-on-tape, and Shel, an overworked plastic surgeon who is still bitter over his not-so-recent divorce. Adding to their hectic lives is Mia, Dave's bubbly assistant who just moved in next door with her husband-to-be, Eric, the Barry's jack-of-all-trades handyman. The "framing device" for each episode is Dave at work on his newspaper column. The episode then illustrates his inspiration for the column. The theme song was a version of "You May Be Right" sung by Southside Johnny.moreless

    The Twisted Tales of Felix the Cat

    CBS (ended 1997)
    Welcome to The Twisted Adventures of Felix the Cat guide at TV.com.

    They say cats have nine lives, and Felix seems to have been no exception. Nearly thirty-five years after his first show, the wonderful, wonderful cat was meowing his way into the 1990's. CBS was so convinced that Felix should be welcomed aboard the Saturday morning lineup that they rushed out 55 five-second bumpers for the 1994 season. Unable to get a whole show out on time, the network was still able to introduce a new audience to the tricky feline by having him appear between established cartoons. But the proud Felix, for whom confidence was never a problem, marched up to the executive in charge of children's programming and demanded his own show. After all, he'd been a star since the 20's. He wasn't going to play second fiddle to a bunch of grungy, slacker 90's toons with no sense of panache. The network gave in—rumors at the time suggested Felix had a couple of connected guys in his bag of tricks— and in 1995, The Twisted Tales of Felix the Cat debuted. The new series echoed its original, jerky 1920's style, where the characters appeared to bounce as they moved (think early Popeye). Responding to its star's demands of high quality, CBS employed Don Oriolo, son of original co-creator Joe Oriolo, as co-executive producer. The cartoon's look may have been an homage to Felix's silent era roots, but this was a Felix of the 90's, and he now had a speaking voice. In these new seven-minute "talkies," Felix employed not only his magic bag of tricks, but also his magic tail, an amazing appendage that could transform itself from a flashlight to a grappling hook to a sword and more, always coming out none the worse for wear. Felix caught on with 90's kids, but not in the same way he had in decades past. After a successful two-season run, the cat retired again, content to kick back and enjoy the royalty checks from all those creepy, eye-shaking clocks.moreless

    Mama

    Follow
    CBS (ended 1957)
    Mama, based on the stage and screen classics I Remember Mama (which in turn were derived from Kathryn Forbe's bookMama's Bank Account), was a long-running program that dates from the earliest days of network television. Mixing simple humor with some mild dramatic situations, the show centered around the happenings of the Norwegian Hansen family in early 20th century San Francisco. The primary characters were Mama and Papa Hansen and their children, though the extended family was also highlighted. Members of the cast were noted for touring during the short Summer hiatus, giving theatrical performances of episodes around the country.

    For much of its history, episodes of the series were broadcast live (from New York City) and the fragile kinescope copies used for broadcast on the West coast were unsuitable for re-runs or syndication and are now mostly gone. In most cases, the remaining handful of kinescopes belong(ed) to cast members from the series. Any surviving examples of early episodes are very rare.

    The final season of the series (the only episodes to be filmed) was composed of Sunday network broadcasts and others that were later added to regional syndication packages.moreless

    Dan Goldwater's famous red-headed teen from the comics comes to animated life in this series, via the Filmation cartoon studio. Some graphic liberties are taken, but for the most part, it was quite faithful to the comics.

    Two Archie cartoons are featured (in which Jughead gains a pet, a big, white sheepdog named Hot Dog). In between was a dance instruction segment (featuring movements no human could do without sustaining a traumatizing injury) followed by a song by the Archies. The show would beget a hit single in 1968, "Bang Shang-A-Lang," released by musical supervisor Don Kirschner on his self-labeled record company. Two bumpers featuring blackouts starring Jughead were also featured.

    The Archie show was so popular the first year that it would spawn a number of new versions, including The Archie Comedy Hour, Archie's Funhouse, Archie's TV Funnies and U.S. Of Archie.moreless

    CBS (ended 1969)
    Spun-off from ABC's prime time series The Bugs Bunny Show and the CBS Saturday morning series The Road Runner Show.The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Hour was the most succesful and popular attempt to bring the classic Looney Tunes cartoons to Saturday morning television where they became a mainstay for more than three decades. The series presented popular animated shorts which were originally produced for the silver screen, where they would appear right before a major motion picture, but here they were introduced by new segments as well as new title cards not shown in the original theatrical versions. Also included were Road Runner cartoons originally shown on the The Road Runner Show. Many people who grew up watching this show will most likely remember it by the opening theme "This Is It" performed by Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck which was shown in black & white when it was created for The Bugs Bunny Show but then shown in color and remodified specifically for this Saturday morning series. In the late '70s The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Hour eventually became The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Show when CBS decided to add an additional 30 minutes to each episode.moreless

    CBS
    Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote is a collection of animated children's cartoon TV episodes developed by Chuck Jones for Warner Bros's Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies that follows the intelligent yet quite unlucky Wile E. Coyote, also known as the Coyote, as he plots and toils to catch the object of his obsession, the beep-beeping and uncatchable speedster, the Road Runner. These long-running classics often poke fun at nature documentaries with highlights of Coyote's natural predatory instincts, a.k.a. utilizing the ludicrous contraptions from the mail-order Acme Corporation. From painting tunnels on mountains to setting up some dynamite-worthy bird seed, the Road Runner remains one dash ahead of the fanatic Coyote, who often ends up on the wrong side of the trap. It doesn't faze him enough to stop trying as these two iconic characters have been set against the other for over sixty years.moreless

    Heckle and Jeckle are inseparable magpies (presumedly twin brothers), identical in appearance but distinguishably different in personality. Though both are remarkably witty, there are noticable differences between them, such as Heckle spoke with a Brooklyn (NY) accent, while Jeckle has a refined British accent. Together, they sought to con free meals and shelter especially out of the upper class, who in all honesty, presented little difficulty for the clever and mischievous birds.

    The synopses came from the Big Cartoon Database website. Deepest gratitude to whoever did these synopses!



    CAST:

    Heckle, magpie. Mischievous and witty, a tough bird with a Brooklyn accent.

    Jeckle, magpie. Heckle's twin who is also mischievous and witty, but is more refined and speaks with a British accent.

    Dimwit, hound. A hapless dog who is always the poor "victim" of Heckle and Jeckle.

    Spike, bulldog. Also a victim of the magpies, but tougher than Dimwit.



    YOUR HELP NEEDED! If you have a good screen-grab picture of Spike, I'd love to post it here! Please let me know if you do. Thanks in advance. (I have a screenshot of the dog, which in the comics was unofficially named Chesty. Copy and paste http://www.geocities.com/chris_30040/bulldog.jpg to see the shot, it's from the cartoon "Goony Golfers".

    Of additional note, a 1964 proposed cartoon, "Mechanical Trouble," was storyboarded but never animated.
