    Welcome to The Dukes at TV.com! Following the success of the original The Dukes of Hazzard series, Warner Bros. decided to make a cartoon on the show, called The Dukes - dropping "of Hazzard" from its title. Airing when Tom Wopat and John Schneider left the main show, Byron Cherry and Christopher Mayer reprised their roles as Coy and Vance Duke. When Tom and John returned, so did Bo and Luke. But by then, it was too late. The show ended after only 20 half-hour episodes. DVDs of these episodes are floating on eBay.

    CBS pioneered the NFL pregame called The NFL Today, which orginally included Brent Musburger, Phylis George, Jimmy "The Greek" Snyder, Irv Cross and has went on to be a Emmy Award-winning show that has set the standard for many shows to follow. It started in the mid 1960's when the Super Bowl first came to exist, and it has continued on for the next 38 years, until CBS lost their rights to the NFL after the 1993 season to FOX. The NFL Today returned in 1998 with the AFC Package this time, and a cast consisting of Jim Nantz, Mike Ditka, Craig James, Randy Cross, and Jerry Glanville. Over the years, other former players have been a part of the show, including Dan Marino, Deion Sanders, Shannon Sharpe, Boomer Esiason, and the newest member of the show, joining in 2007, former head coach Bill Cowher. To this day it is a valuable resource to NFL fans to keep up with news on the latest NFL games and players and predictions on Sunday's outcomes. Many hosts have past, including Brent, Greg Gumbel, Jim Nantz, and now the modern-day version is hosted by James Brown and features anaylsis from Dan Marino, Shannon Sharpe and Boomer Esiason, who regularly make selections for the day's games on the show. The NFL Today also takes viewers out to their regional NFL game before any other network, with "First on the Field."

    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

    Capitol

    Capitol

    Follow
    CBS (ended 1987)
    CAPITOL was a political soap opera about three families, the McCandless, the Cleggs and the Tylers.

    The McCandless family was headed by Clarissa, a widow. She and her husband, Baxter, had five children: Tyler, an Air Force hero with political aspirations; Thomas, a handicapped doctor; Matt, an Olympic hopeful; Wally, a confused college student; and Gillian, still in her teens. Following Baxter's death, her father, former political bigwig Judson Tyler, served as the family's patriarchal figure. Playing an important role in Clarissa's life was longtime friend Senator Mark Denning. His unstable wife, Paula, was thought to be housebound. In fact, she pretended to suffer from agoraphobia as a way of holding onto her husband, who she feared was in love with Clarissa. Their daughter, Sloane, was a popular television newscaster.

    The feud between the Tylers and the Cleggs began thirty years earlier, when Myrna discovered her lifelong friend Clarissa was going to marry the love of Myrna's life, Baxter McCandless. Vowing revenge, Myrna implemented her first evil deed against Clarissa's family by destroying Judosn's political career. Exploiting the 'Red Scare' that had overtaken the counr¡try, Myrna succesfully convinced everyone that Judson was a closet communist.

    The romance between Tyler McCandless and Julie Clegg figured prominently during the serial's first tow years (1982, 1983). When Julie suffered amnesia in a boating accident just weeks before her wedding to Tyler, Myrna took advantage of the situation convincing Julie she was in love with Lawrence Barrington. Myrna approved of Lawrence because she thought he came from a wealthy family. In reality, he was a con man hoping to tap into the Cleggs' millions by marrying Julie. Eventually, Lawrence's true identity was exposed, Julie regained her memory, and she and Tyler finally wed. Soon after, a pregnant Julie had a miscarriage and learned she'd never be able to have children. Two different attempts to adopt children proved unsuccessful.

    Meanwhile, Tyler's vendetta against organized crime resulted in criminals kidnapping Julie to punish Tyler.. With Sloane's help, Tyler rescued julie. Unfortunately, Julie's return home wasn't a time for celebration. Instead, she was accused of shooting Senator Mark Denning ( he survived his wounds). It was later revealed that Jenny Diamond, a deranged woman with an amazing resemblance to Julie, was responsible. Before the serial ended, Julie and Tyler decided to separate.

    Following and unhappy relationship with former prostitute Kelly Harper, Trey fell in love with Sloane. Unknown to Trey, Kelly left town pregnant- apparently with his child. Months after Trey married Sloane, Kelly returned and revealed they had a son, Scotty. To Sloane's disappointment, Trey decided to end their marriage so he could marry Kelly. Any chance Trey and Kelly had for happiness, however, was destroyed by Kelly's growing dependency on drugs.

    After divorcing Kelly, Trey began a whirlwind romance with the young woman barely out of her teens, Angelica. they married, causing everyone in the Clegg family to question Trey's state of mind. The marriage was annulled months later when it was discovered Angelica's first husband was still alive. Single again, Trey realized he still loved Kelly. Although Kelly finally managed to kick her drug habit, Trey was devastated to discover Scotty wasn't his son. Thomas had been sexually involved with Kelly and was Scotty's true father.

    Clarissa discovered that a man calling himself Jarrett Morgan was actually her presumed-dead husband, Baxter McCandless. An accident had disfigured Baxter years earlier, causing him to drop out of his family's life and assume a new identity. During his years away from the family, Baxter became involved with Interpol and was helping the government crack a notorious spy ring operating in Washington. Eventually, Clarissa was able to work through her anger and love Baxter again.

    Sloane got her mind off Trey by becoming sexually involved with the mysterious Zed Diamond. His presumed-dead wife Jenny was the Julie look-a-like who shot Mark Denning. To protect his unbalanced wife, Zed fled Washington with her. Under Zed's loving care, jenny regained her memory, confessed to shooting Mark, and was eventually set free. With everyone believing she was sane, an obsessed Jenny hatched a plot to kill Sloane, who she thought was still attracted to Zed. The scheme backfired, resulting in Jenny's death.

    While covering a news story, Sloan was reunited with a former love, Prince Ali of Baraq. Political unrest in Ali's torn country made it impossible for him to marry Sloane. Instead, he married a woman named Yasmeen. On their wedding day, Yasmeen was killed by an assassin's bullet. To Sloane's horror, her father, who was a spy, was responsible. When orders were issued for Mark to kill his own daughter, he resisted and was murdered. Anxious to build a life with Prince Ali, Sloane gave up her career to marry him. On their wedding night, Ali was kidnapped by dissidents plotting to overthrow Baraq. In his absence, Sloane tried to run the country. In the final episode, Sloane found herself facing an execution squad. The show ended with these words: "Ready, aim..." and faded in black.

    Capitol started with the old rivalries between two families: the Cleggs and the McCandless. The wealthy Cleggs included powerful patriarch Sam, his ruthless wife Myrna; Sam's eldest son by a former marriage, Trey; oldest daughter, Julie; son, Jordy; and the youngest daughter, Brenda.

    Harrison K. Fox was a conservative young attorney trying to develop a successful law practice in San Francisco to support his wife, Cindy, and his young son, Josh. Unfortunately his life was endlessly complicated by his unconventional father Harry, a lovable con artist and private eye who was constantly getting involved in murder cases. Harry was a real character. When he got involved in a dicey case, he would inevitably drag Harrison in with him, sometimes getting free legal advice (he had, after all, paid for Harrison's education), sometimes to get Harrison to take on one of his trouble-prone friends as a client, most often to help with the legwork. That usually meant chasing people, breaking into offices, and getting shot at, just the sort of diversion a conservative attorney enjoys! Harrison's secretary Allison grew used to seeing Harry barge into the office, interrupting important meetings. Despite all this, and regardless of his better judgment, harrison could never turn Harry down. He was, after all, a lovable old coot.

    Follow
    CBS (ended 1992)
    The New Adventures of Mighty Mouse (actually billed as Mighty Mouse: The New Adventures) was Ralph Bakshi's revisionist version of the famous Terrytoons superhero. Taking a healthy nod from classic theatrical cartoons, Bakshi's take has stories written by the cartoonists themselves. The result is old school cartoon making, with outrageous visual hyperbole (a model sheet reads "Jim Tyer poses--use with extreme caution!") and verbal puns. Mighty Mouse has a secret identity in this series--he's Mike Mouse, a labeler at the Mouseville cannery (where Pearl Pureheart is his boss). The show features some new villains--the Cow, Petey Pate and the Glove, among them--and a sidekick, Scrappy the orphan mouse. While a critical success, Mighty Mouse: The New Adventures was never a ratings success. It ran two seasons on CBS then return in repeats on Fox in the fall of 1992. It sparked controvery in the episode "The Littlest Tramp" in that after Mighty Mouse was shown sniffing the pulverized petals of a flower that went up his nose, Rev. Donald Wildmon charged that the hero was sniffing cocaine. CBS had the scene edited in later screenings. John Kricfalusi worked on the show's first season before striking out on his own, doing the ill-fated revival of Beany & Cecil in 1988 and then Ren & Stimpy in 1991.moreless

    Tattletales

    Tattletales

    Follow
    CBS (ended 1984)
    Tattletales was an updated version of the Goodson-Todman game show He Said, She Said, where celebrity couples answered questions about their marriage. As before, the idea was to match responses and win prizes for audience members. But this revision had quite a few differences that made it one of the more respectable hits of the 1970s - and not just with the sometimes outrageous responses that were commonplace in that decade. Tattletales went through two distinct formats during its two runs from 1974-1978 and again from 1982-1984. The one constant, however was that each couple represented a specific section of the 122-member audience - the Red section, the Blue section and the "Bananas" (the Yellow section) and the couple assigned to them would try to win money to be split amongst the audience members of that section by matching responses. The rules were as follows: Format 1 (February to about June 1974): The wives or husbands were onstage while their husbands or wives were secluded in an soundproof room. Host Convy posed a question to the women or men (e.g.: "What's the first thing your husband gripes about in the morning?") and the first to ring in related an appropriate story and a one- or two-word clue she or he believed her or his husband or wife would be able to recognize the story from. Convy then read the question to the husbands or the wives - shown from the isolation room via the television screen - and the clue. The husband or the wife who believed he was being talked about rang in and tried to tell the story. If the correct husband or wife rang in and his or her response was essentially similar, the couple won $100 for their rooting section on 1-Clueword or 2-Clueword worth $50 for their rooting section. After the question had been played twice (with a second set of spouses getting to vie for the cash), Convy asked a "Tattletales Quickie." Here, each spouse was posed a question as before (though usually multiple choice or yes/no). $100 was paid off among the couples who matched. Round 2 was played as before, only now the male or female halves of the couples were brought on stage and the wives or the husbands had to match. At the end of the second round, the couple(s) with the most money earned or split a $1000 bonus ($334 if all 3 tied; $500 for the 2 top money-winners and $1000 for a sole winner). Since several shows were taped at a time, the couples switched rooting sections each day (i.e., the couple who represented the Bananas on Monday would play for the Red or Blue sections on Tuesday and so on). Format 2 (June 1974-rest of run): All questions were now of the "Tattletales Quickies" variety. As before, they could be multiple choice or yes/no, but now they were open-ended; since this was the 1970s and a game show that frequently encouraged double-entendre, there were many wild and outrageous responses and while most of the questions were designed to get laughs (e.g., "Who was at the door the last time your husband answered ... and he was totally in the buff?"), some questions were deadly serious ("Would you allow a 5-year-old boy to take refuge in your home if he said his father hits him?"). Rewards were split this time ($50 for all three couples, $75 if two couples were correct and $150 if just one couple was right) and the rules for winning were also the same. If no couple was right, the pot was carried over to the next question ($300 or $450). Although the final question of the day had $300 available and sometimes additional questions (worth $150 or $300) were played if time allowed. For those who find such matters interesting, the maximum possible payout for a couple was $1750 (which has been achieved as has all 3 couples winning $0 for the entire show). In the 80's version, it wasn't always married couples. Special weeks featured mother-sons (Isabel Sanford and her son racked up $1600 for their rooting section), best friends (all male panel), sisters (all female panel) and television couples (who shared on-stage secrets). Tattletales lived three different lives - twice on CBS (February 1974 to March 1978 and January 1982 to June 1984) and a 1-year run in once-a-week syndication during the 1977-1978 season. During each of the runs, it was traditional for a beautiful young woman to hand Bert the microphone more than once Convy engaged in a passionate liplock! When Bert played the game (on several occassions), it was usually Gene Rayburn who took over the hosting duties. ----------------------------------------------------------------- THE BROADCAST HISTORY of TATTLETALES: February 18, 1974-June 13, 1975 at 4:00-4:30pm on CBS-TV June 16, 1975-August 15, 1975 at 11:00-11:30am on CBS-TV August 18, 1975-November 28, 1975 at 3:30-4:00pm on CBS-TV December 1, 1975-November 4, 1977 at 4:00-4:30pm on CBS-TV November 7, 1977-December 9, 1977 at 3:30-4:00pm on CBS-TV December 12, 1977-March 31, 1978 at 10:00-10:30am on CBS-TV January 18, 1982-June 1, 1984 at 12Noon-12:30pm or 4:00-4:30pm on CBS-TV.

    CBS (ended 1985)
    Saturday Supercade was an hour-long TV program following the adventures of various video game characters including Donkey Kong, Frogger, Pitfall, Kangaroo, Space Ace and Q*Bert, all some of the world's favorite video games, had their own cartoons in this spectacular show, as well as a couple of less popular (but very fun) arcade oldies. They took characters from relatively simple games and gave them distinct personalities, fitting them into goofball adventures which weren't all that interesting, but fun nonetheless. Unlike many game cartoons, this show did not flop. In fact, this show had such great success that it lasted two years, which is very long for a video game-themed show. The Shows Within the Show Frogger- The cartoon focuses in on Frogger's exploits as a field reporter. He's always on the lookout for the next great story, either finding them on his own or being ordered to cover some godforsaken grand opening of another 9.95 Chinese buffet by his chief editor, who also happens to be a frog. Frogger wasn't alone on his adventures in journalism. He's frequently accompanied by Fanny Frog and Shelly Turtle. The trio usually only seek out stories that will ultimately lead to them being chased by someone holding some type of bludgeoning weapon. They're not masochistic, they just enjoy the sense of adventure. Donkey Kong- After escaping from the circus, DK is perpetually on the lam, running from the one person talented enough to catch him. Along the way, he'll have plenty of adventures that usually result in mass banana feasts or someone putting comical sunglasses on him, but he'll always need to have one thing in the back of his mind: stop moving for too long, and Mario will throw a giant net over his head. In this, Mario is just a normal little Italian guy who spends every waking moment hunting a big gorilla. On the plus side, he's not going about this endeavor by himself. Mario's taken along his favorite niece, Pauline... Pitfall- The story's set in the jungle featuring the adventures of Pitfall Harry & his daughter, along with Quick Claws, the cowardly lion. Q*Bert- The story here was that Q*Bert and his friends lived in a town where everything was made up of cubes. Most of the action took place within their school, where they usually ended up at odds with the resident bullies, who happen to be the same guys Q*Bert squares off against in the video game. Q*Bert is helped by his girlfriend and his friends, "Slick" and "Sam," who were small green raindrop creatures who helped him conquer the cube mountains. They were basically twins, but Slick wore sunglasses to be different from the other. Coilee was the main villain and he had two minions named Ugh and Wrong Way. Pitfall & Q*Bert were rotated weekly. Donkey Kong Jr.- This was about a monkey's never-ending search for his father. Since Donkey Kong's on the run from Mario and the circus, his son can't seem to find him. He hasn't given up hope, and just keeps on trucking, hopeful that one day his adventures will lead him right into the arms of Proud Papa Ape. DK's son is a lot smarter than he. He speaks perfect English, and doesn't have anyone trying to throw him in cages. This is mostly because he's got a friend, who is also a human, named 'Bones' to protect him. They pass the time by taking odd jobs while trying to locate Donkey Kong, Sr. Basic, but fun. Monkey muscle! The second season knocked off Pitfall & Donkey Kong Jr. to make room for... Kangaroo- Misadventures set in a zoo where Katy & Joey Kangaroo lived, along with friend Sidney Squirrel, and their monkey nemesis Bingo, Bango, Bongo & Fred. Space Ace- Based on the Don Bluth disc game. Space Ace, our hero, once got zapped by the Infanto ray Borf invented. But the ray is temporary as he switches from the hero to his nerdy teenage kid, Dexter. Only Kimberly knows that her boyfriend can switch back & forth from hero to nerd & back again. Space Ace/Dexter & Kimberly protect the universe from the evil Borf & all other aliens. NOTE: Most of the synopsis' for the guide are the same because almost every episode of this shown featured the same story shown over and over again in the same format.
