    Sheriff John Grail was mad - we hit a bank in his town. Harland Pike, me - Wolfson Lucas, William Pike, and Isaiah "Ice" McAdams, known collectively as the Pike Gang. Grail had once been partners in crime with the four of us, but now all bets were off. The showdown was interrupted however by the Allmighty, who sent us all sailing into the 20th century, and what a century it was! But we weren't what you would call ordinary men, so we dug in, tried to adapt, and started a detection agency to put beans on the table and in the process ran head on into Deputy Maggie Randall. Things may be different this century, but there's plenty of work to be done because one thing is bound to be true - the bad hombres will always outnumber the good. In 1886, the four members of the Pike gang and their ex-partner, Sheriff John Grail, meet in a dead-end gully over an Indian graveyard and a burst of lightning catapults them all 100 years into Houston in the future. Forced to band together, the five start up the Double-Eagle Detective Agency and, with the help of Lt. Belford, fight crime with a unique Old West sensibility.moreless

    Archie Bunker's Place premiered in 1979 as a continuation of the very popular CBS series All in the Family. When the new series began, the focus of the series shifted from Archie and Edith's home life to Archie's bar, Archie's Place, which was now being expanded into a short-order restaurant. Some new regulars were introduced into the series such as Archie's new business partner, Murray Klein, cook Veronica Rooney, and some of Archie's friends, who were formerly recurring guest stars were now regulars or even costars. Edith was seen less frequently in the first season. Then at the beginning of the second season, the unthinkable happened. Edith suddenly died of a stroke, leaving Archie to care for little Stephanie all by himself.

    GOT A PROBLEM? ODDS AGAINST YOU? CALL THE EQUALIZER! The Equalizer (Robert McCall) is a former agent of a shadowy, unnamed government agency, who is trying to make up for the unspoken sins of his past. His atonement comes in the form of an advertisement in the newspaper that features the above quote. McCall uses his finely honed skills, and occasionally, the agents and resources from his old agency, to combat the injustices perpetrated against those who can't seek protection from the law. He battles corrupt politicians, abusive husbands, greedy corporate executives, stalkers, kidnappers and gangsters to avenge those who are helpless. Sometimes, McCall's past comes back to haunt him when spies and international terrorists set foot in New York City and his former employer drags him back in to help track them down. In McCall's dark world, few people can be trusted. One man he always relies on is his former fellow agent, Mickey Kostmayer, who often assists McCall in his cases. Another is his former boss, a man known only as Control, who pulls government strings to give McCall a hand when he can. British actor Edward Woodward plays Robert McCall to perfection, bringing a dark undercurrent of anger and sorrow to the man while still allowing his compassion for the downtrodden to show through. The series ran for four years on CBS, premiering in 1985 and ending in 1989. ------------------------------------------------- Special Thanks to the late Donna Lemaster, who started this episode guide -------------------------------------------------moreless

    CBS (ended 1990)
    Muppet Babies was a very successful cartoon series in its own right. This show basically featured Jim Henson's famous Muppets as babies. Each episode, each of the Muppet Babies had adventures that their imaginations take them on. Often however, their imaginations would sometimes get the better of them, all for comic effect. Since Muppet Babies first hit the airwaves in 1984 it was instantly a favorite of its demographic. However, the show had appealed to viewers of all ages, child, teen, and adult. Let's face it, the 80's was a time of change, technology, and adventure. Muppet Babies was no expectation. In a decade when most television shows promoted a toy line or clothing this show had nothing at all to sell, no gimmick, just pure education. Now here is a little tidbit about the iconic Muppet Babies which was a very successful cartoon series in its own right. This show basically featured Jim Henson's famous Muppets as babies. Each episode, each of the Muppet Babies had adventures that their imaginations take them on. Often however, their imaginations would sometimes get the better of them, all for comic effect. The featured Muppets were Baby Kermit, Piggy, Fozzie, Gonzo, Rowlf, Animal, Scooter, and a new character, Skeeter, Scooter's look-alike sister. Occasionally they had visits from Baby Bunsen and Beaker, and even Statler and Waldorf came to visit, and later we see a recurring appearance by a "baby" version of Bean Bunny from Tale of the Bunny Picnic. The moral glue that held these Muppets together was Nanny (voiced by Barbara Billingsley of Leave it to Beaver fame), a character whose body was only shown from the waist down and we all remember the green striped socks. The one thing that made the Muppet Babies memorable were not the Muppets themselves, but the live action that was inter-cut with the cartoon action (consisting mostly of film and TV clips, etc). Also, the Muppet Babies were inspired by a small scene in the 1984 film, "The Muppets Take Manhattan". In 1986, the show was extended to an hour to accommodate another cartoon series Little Muppet Monsters, and then in 1987, new episodes were shown with repeats of previous Muppet Babies episodes. Little Muppet Monsters After the huge success of Muppet Babies CBS decided to expand the series by adding an extra half hour which was to be filled by a new show called "Little Muppet Monsters". The whole hour would be dubbed "Jim Henson's Muppet's, Babies and Monsters". The mixture of live action puppetry and animation featuring Muppet characters proved too much and the show was pulled by Jim Henson, after only two shows had aired. After the end credits and logos were shown, there was an ending segment in which eventually Animal shouts "Gooooooooo bye-bye!". Reruns were shown on Nickelodeon through the early to mid 1990's on Nick. Jr at 10:30 - 11:00 A.M. In 1997 Nick Jr stoped airing re-runs to acominadate the new series Franklin Some of the first Nick Jr shows that aired with Muppet Babies were [show]The Busy World of Richard Scarry (9:30-10:00 a.m. and 1:00-1:30 p.m.), Allegra's Window, Little Bear, Gullah Gullah Island Also on the NICK JR. schedule are Rupert (10:00-10:30 a.m.), Jim Henson's Muppet Babies (10:30-11:00 a.m.) and Papa Beaver's Storytime (1:30-2:00 p.m.).

Muppet Babies taught lessons to children in many ways. The most powerful was through song. An example if from an episode in which Kermit does not know what he want to be when he grown up. Be be be what you want to be Do do do what you want to do Be be be what you want to be It's up to you wo-wo-wo-woah SCOOTER: Be a pilot and go for a flight Take us all to dinner in your jet some night PIGGY: Or be the first farmer in history To figure out a way to grow an ice cream tree ANIMAL: "Yummy" GONZO: What about an international spy?

Such shows include Baby Looney Tunes, Tiny Toon Adventures, The Flintstone Kids, The New Archies, A Pup Named Scooby Doo, Yo, Yogi, and Tom and Jerry Kids. Six of these shows were made in between 1984 (Muppet Babies) to 1990. Characters: Kermit: He is none-other then a small green frog with a big imagination. He is the leader of the group and his best friend is Fozzie. Frequently he has his famous gulp when things are not going as planned. It usually goes something like this, "Oh boy..GULP!" Fozzie: Wacko, Wacko, Wacko! Is what Fozzie frequent expresses after one of his jokes. Most jokes he says are actually not funny, but he has high spirits of becoming a comedian. Miss Piggy: This little piglet has a huge crush on Kermit the frog. She expresses her passion and love for him in many ways; verbally or emotionally. Her dream is to be Mrs.Kermit (while Kermit actually does not have the same "feelings" for her that she does for him. Gonzo: A mystery is right here on what this little guy is. Some thing he is a cross-over between a monkey and alien, but who really knows!? He has a huge crush on Miss Piggy and hopes that he and her will have kids someday. Gonzo sometimes gets a little annoying to the group, but he finds some way to make it up to them! Rowlf: A musician in the making. You hardly even seen Rowlf without playing his white piano. He is more of they shy type, but finds it easy to express himself through songs. He is more of a loner, but he is a great friend to all the nursery children. Animal: Many ask what kind of animal he is, but no one knows. He is a loud non speaking Muppet who is very energetic. Many times you will see him hanging on the nursery chandler while playing hide and seek. At the end of many episode he will have the last word weather is is an action or a big hearty laugh. Nanny: What oh what would the nursery be without her supervision? She teaches lessons to the Muppet Babies through tough-love, but they always get the point. We never learned what she looked like beyond her neck. She is famous for her green and white striped socks that only the babies were able to see. Nanny is always there for the young children whether they need a lesson on life or a "boo-boo" to be kissed. Airing Information CBS: September 15, 1984 to September7, 1985 as Muppet Babies.

    Hulk Hogan's Rock 'N' Wrestling was an animated series that premiered on CBS on September 14, 1985. The series which lasted two seasons featured the animated comic adventures of professional wrestler Hulk Hogan and his group of "good guy" friends who included fellow professional wrestlers Junkyard Dog, Captain Lou Albano, Andre The Giant, Hillybilly Jim, Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka, Tito Santana, and Wendi Richter. The animated series also featured a group of selfish and greedy "bad guy" wrestlers led by "Rowdy" Roddy Piper that included Nikolia Volkoff, The Iron Sheik, Mr. Fuji, Big John Studd, and The Fabulous Moolah. Throughout the series run, these bad guy wrestlers often opposed Hogan and his friends in their adventures. Each episode of the series featured two fifteen minute cartoons and live action wrap-around segments which sometimes emphasized music or a lesson to be learned from the day's episode. The show was created following the breakthrough success of Hulk Hogan and the World Wrestling Federation (now World Wrestling Entertainment). At the time, the WWF featured Rock 'N' Wrestling which was a successful effort to cross-promote professional wrestling and rock 'n' roll that involved primarily pop-musician Cyndi Lauper. Although wrestlers were featured in the live action wrap around segments of the show, voice work for the show was done by professional voice actors and actresses. The last new episode of the show was broadcast on October 18, 1986. The show has since lived on in syndication and home video release.moreless

    CBS (ended 1986)
    One of the earliest TV soaps, Search for Tomorrow debuted on CBS in 1951 as a 15-minute live show, produced by Procter and Gamble. For most of the first half of its run, it would stay as that 15 minute live show, and quickly became a hit. The center of Search for Tomorrow was Mary Stuart's character Joanne, a Midwestern housewife. The ratings were high in the '50s, but the start of the next decade Search was in a ratings decline. To try to combat this, CBS brought in Frank and Doris Hursley as new writers for the show. The new writers weren't able to bring the ratings out of decline, and in 1963 the Hursleys left after a storyline involving Joanne's baby running in front of a car caused friction between the producers and star Stuart. In 1968, Search for Tomorrow finally abandoned its live format, moving to tape and extending the show to half an hour. In the 1970's, new storylines involving the younger characters on Search took center stage, while Joanne was cut back on her appearances. Many felt that this would be the death knell for Search, but it stayed consistent, pulling in a steady #4 rating among all soaps throughout the decade. In 1981, CBS decided that Search for Tomorrow would be better off in a new time slot (it had aired at 12:30 EST for its entire run up until that point), and moved the show to 2:30 PM, replacing it with The Young and the Restless (which still holds the spot to this day). This didn't work, as the ratings dipped once again. Proctor & Gamble wanted to move back to an earlier time slot, but CBS wouldn't bite and cancelled Search for Tomorrow in early 1982. The show was replaced by Capitol, which aired for four and a half seasons. NBC picked up the Search on March 29, 1982, and moved it back to its 12:30 timeslot (opposite the show that had replaced it, Y&R). The second soap to switch networks (The Edge of Night was the first). The ratings continued to slide, and by 1984 the writers were resorting to ridiculous plots and storylines to grab viewers. Nothing worked, as the show continued to struggle against the hit The Young and the Restless. Due to a missing video tape, one 1983 episode had to air live! NBC pulled the plug in 1986, and on December 26 the Search finally ended after 35-plus years. The show would be replaced by the game show Wordplay, which lasted eight months. When it ended, Search for Tomorrow had the longest run of any daytime soap opera (35 years). The record has since been surpassed by Guiding Light, which premiered on television one year after Search. Guiding Light is now in year 52. First Aired: September 3, 1951 Last Aired: December 26, 1986moreless

    This series featured great animation techniques, more cells and frames, and vivid colours. The result is a very smooth flow of animation. There were only thirteen episodes of the Wuzzles and one of them was released in the theaters. I'm guessing that there was plans for more episodes, but the series didn't make it to the second season. Just before the series, there was a huge toy line of the Wuzzles released by Disney and Hasbro Bradley. Stuff from plush Wuzzles, posable figures, miniatures, radios, bed sheets, books, clothing, and possibly other stuff. The plush toys were dated back to 1984 and a second set of the Wuzzles were released with six new ones through 1985 to 1986. This new set of Wuzzles had a new series of books. information taken with permisson fromThe New Unoffical Wuzzles' Fan Page The Wuzzles Bumblelion (part bumble bee and part lion) is the most courageous out of all the Wuzzles next to Rhinokey, though there's some situations were he'd rather not be. His house is a large bee hive and it has an Olympic style race track circling it. Out side his front door is a chin-up bar and a podium. He has high interests in Butterbear Rhinokey (part rhinoceros and part monkey) is a taxi cab driver and a full-time practical joker. He's got practical jokes from fake hands to whoopee cushions. He's bad at arithmetic and hates hostile audiences. At any moment, he always tries to get the last laugh, especially if it involves Hoppopotamus. He lives in a treehouse that has a banana peel-like roof and some other strange features. If you're dropping by to visit, I'd rather knock on the front door than using the doorbell. It might be booby-trapped with one of his jokes. I think it exploded the last time. Some of his friends call him Rhiny. Eleroo (part elephant and part kangaroo) is all nerves, a little clumsy, and has been known to eat the restaurants out of business (almost.) He stores things in his pouch but sometimes has trouble looking for what he wants. He collects all sorts of stuff from pianoharps to telephotographs. If you want it, he's got it. That's if you're into very unusual stuff. He wishes that he could fly because his little wings aren't strong or big enough. Butterbear (part butterfly and part bear) is the nature lover. She bakes all sorts of goodies and treats. She also puts canning jars out whenever there's a tropical fruit storm occurring. She'll go over the limit to help her friends or enemies. She's an excellent gardener too, she can even make cement grow! Moosel (part moose and part seal) has a very vivid imagination that gets him into trouble. He lives in a lighthouse (that sounds pretty normal) and owns a chugboat. His favourite food is liver-spinach sandwiches (yuck!) He usually has some good ideas to help out his friends. Hoppopotamus (part hippopotamus and part rabbit) is the heaviest of all the wuzzles and loves to act and sing. Believe me, her singing will move the audience out of the town. She also tries her best to get a good compliment from Bumblelion, but is usually harassed by Rhinokey's jokes. Her friends call her Hoppo. Tycoon (part tiger and part raccoon) I guess Tycoon's appearance was going to be seen more often in future episodes after "What's Up Stox?" He's a business tycoon and was planning to be the richest Wuzzle in the Land of Wuz with a money tree that he wheeled and dealed for. Unfortunately, Crock had to get his hands on it. Apparently, Tycoon is the richest Wuzzle in Wuz. If you ever need financial help, this Wuzzle's the one to do it for you. Other Wuzzles(not feature in series but had toys of them) Woolrus (part lamb and part walrus) enjoys playing music. Unfortunately when he plays, it influences the other Wuzzles. He discovered a piece of music written by Mr. Brahms which almost put all of Wuz to sleep. Skowl (part skunk and part owl) is a funny little Wuzzle. Although he doesn't mean to be, he always gets into trouble because he wasn't quite as smart as he thought he was. Pandeaver (part panda and part beaver) is a Wuzzle who is full of energy. He never likes to sit arround and do nothing, even on a hot and sticky day. Piggypine (part pig and part porcupine) is a Wuzzle who decides to do something and sticks right to it. She's also loves to eat but she gets a little worried of eating too much. Koalakeet (part koala and part parakeet) is a whiz at math but a bit slow at sports. Good thing the Wuzzles appointed him as the official scorekeeper for all the Wuzzle games. He always comes prepared with pens, paper, and a calculator.moreless

    Affable sheriff's deputy Enos Strate got his own spin-off program from The Dukes of Hazzard for one season. On November 5, 1980, a "Dukes" episode entitled Enos Strate To The Top served as the pilot episode for Enos, showing Deputy Strate capturing two dangerous criminals. One week later, the show made its series premiere. The country boy had been invited to join LAPD in a premise similar to Dennis Weaver's character serving with NYPD in McCloud several years earlier. Unfortunately, the series only lasted 18 episodes. After it was cancelled, Sonny Shroyer took a year off and then returned to the "Dukes" for the last three years of that series seven year run.moreless
