    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

    Follow
    CBS (ended 1989)
    Kate and Allie, which ran on CBS from 19 March 1984 to 22 May 1989, was the brainchild of Sherry Coben who came up with the idea for the series while attending a high school reunion. There she noticed that a couple of divorcees who seemed unhappy and dissatisfied found comfort in sharing with each other. Coben worked with this germinal notion and successfully pitched the resulting script, originally entitled, "Two Mommies," to Michael Ogiens, then head of New York program development at CBS. Ogiens liked the script because it contained fresh material that dealt with a real issue of the day--single parenthood. Kate and Allie was an instant success, ranking fourth the week it debuted, garnering consistently high ratings thereafter, and earning Jane Curtin two consecutive Emmys and Bill Persky, one. The characters and the issues they dealt with obviously appealed to the program's audience. Saint James' character, Kate, is a woman recently divorced from her unstable and somewhat flighty part-time actor husband, Max. She has one daughter, 14-year-old Emma (Ari Meyers). Curtin's Allie is also recently divorced from her successful, but unfaithful doctor husband, Charles. She has a 14-year-old daughter Jennie (Allison Smith) and a seven-year-old son, Chip (Frederick Koehler). Neither Kate nor Allie have ruled out remarriage but view their new situation as a provisional reprieve, a time for both women to come to know and appreciate themselves. On one level the series dealt with practical problems faced by divorced women with children: adjusting to a new lifestyle and to living closely with new people, dealing with children's issues, beginning to date again, securing financial stability.moreless

    CBS (ended 1955)
    Danger was live half-hour dramatic anthology on CBS-TV. The series, with stories focused on characters in peril facing psychological suspense and often murder, was highly regarded for the quality of its stories and productions. Yul Brynner, CBS-TV staff director, headed the directing at the beginning; he brought in friend Sidney Lumet as his assistant director. When Brynner departed after landing the lead in The King and I, Lumet took over and directed some 150 live episodes of the series. Another later-famous film director, John Frankenheimer, took over later when Lumet finally moved to other series. The series employed a number of writers who were "blacklisted" (Walter Bernstein and Abraham Polonsky) who used phony pen names to hide their identities. The initial producer, Martin Ritt, was sacked in 1952 when he became "blacklisted".moreless

    Password

    Follow
    CBS (ended 1975)
    Password was a simple word-association game, but became one of the most popular and beloved game shows of all time. It was the first successful show to pair a contestant with a celebrity partner and among the first to return after being cancelled several years. A retooled version of "Password" began in 1979 (as Password+Plus and later in 1984 as Super Password) enjoyed two more highly successful runs. This Password page, however, focuses on the 1961-1967 and 1971-1975 versions. Two contestants competed, each paired with a star partner that played the entire week. Host Allen Ludden gave one member of each team a "password," and using 1-word clues only (proper nouns were accepted), it was the cluegiver's job to get his or her partner to guess the word for 10 points. If the 1st team didn't guess the word, the opposing team (who was allowed to "eavesdrop") could try to successfully communicate the word with a new clue (or sometimes even the same clue) for 9 points. Play alternated until the word was guessed with 1 point deducted for each clue or until all 10 clues were given at Ludden's discretion (if it was obvious the word would never be guessed) or if the cluegiver accidentally uttered part or all of the password. Illegal clues – such as hyphenated words and clues with more than one word – and taking too much time also passed control to the opponents will be sounded by the buzzer from The Word Authority of Dr. Reason A. Goodwin--The Editor of World Book Encyclopedia Dictionary. Usually, the stars (who played the entire weekday) gave the clues on the 1st word of a game with the contestants trying to guess the word; then the contestants gave the clues and the celebrities tried to guess and so on. Play continued until 1 team scored 25 points (or on occassion, a time's up whistle sounded). The contestant won $100 on CBS Daytime and ($250 for the nighttime portion) and his or her team played the Lightning Round (believed to be the 1st endgame in a game show). In the Lightning Round, the celebrity partner was shown a series of 5 new passwords, one at a time. He or she had 60 seconds (1 Minute) to communicate all 5 to the contestant at $50 per correct guess of the word. An illegal clue or a pass meant no money could be earned on that word. Up to $250 was possible in the Lightning Round. Each contestant played 2 games after which they both retired; a contestant could win a maximum of $700. Even contestants who were shut out of any cash winnings were given a consolation gift (usually a camera or a set of World Book encyclopedias or other stuff). The most impressive contestants returned each year for a tournament of champions, but this was little more than asking them back to play two more games for $700 extra. The show debuted on the CBS daytime schedule on October 2, 1961 and continued through September 15, 1967; a nighttime Portion premiered on January 2, 1962 and had 2 runs up to May 22, 1967. Actress Betty White was a frequent guest star(and in June 1963, was a permanent fixture in Ludden's life ... as his wife); she appeared very frequently in all revivals of Password, long after Ludden's death on June 9, 1981; little wonder she was among the best players of this game. Reruns were syndicated to local stations after leaving CBS daytime (in part due to a naughty new game show called The Newlywed Game which was scheduled against Password) before reappearing on April 5, 1971 as a part of the ABC daytime schedule. Play was largely as before with modest cash payouts. That's until November 18, 1974, when the powers-that-be decided to change the game. An all-star edition – as Password All-Stars with 6 stars playing for charity – and a revised format with 4 contestants (2 of which were paired with a celebrity partner) competing for 2 spots in the main game were seen more as screwing up a good thing than changing it. Needless to say, the show would die of a quick death leaving ABC after an 5 season run on June 27, 1975. However, Goodson-Todman did make some changes that DID work, and showcased them in another revival called Password Plus, which debuted on January 8, 1979 on NBC (hosted originally by Ludden and later Bill Cullen and Tom Kennedy). That show remained until March 26, 1982, but it returned on September 24, 1984 as Super Password (hosted by Bert Convy) and it lived on NBC until March 24, 1989. See Password Plus and Super Password for more details. Broadcast History of Password: October 2, 1961-September 15, 1967 CBS-TV: Monday-Friday at 2:00-2:30pm April 5, 1971-September 3, 1971 ABC-TV: Monday-Friday at 4:00-4:30pm September 6, 1971-March 17, 1972 ABC-TV: Monday-Friday at 12:30-1:00pm March 20, 1972-June 27, 1975 ABC-TV Monday-Friday at 12Noon-12:30pm.moreless

    CBS (ended 1994)
    Cadillacs and Dinosaurs is the brainchild of Mark Schultz, who originally created the series in comic book format under the title Xenozoic Tales in the year 1986. The television series came to be through the marketing of Marvel Comics, when (years later) the company had acquired the rights to the property and attempted a revival of the popularity it once held in comic format. The series followed the exploits of survival-savvy garage mechanic Jack Tenrec, (who had a passion for restoring classic car shells, mainly those of Cadillacs) and his often-reluctant companion, the lovely foreign ambassador Hannah Dundee (who hired Jack as a liason while she attempted to create clear communication between her land and the modern civilization) as they confronted serious issues facing the futuristic environment that they (and the rest of humanity) had come to inhabit alongside many dinosaurs that were long thought to be extinct. Jack, leading his crew (a band of ecological freedom fighters known as the Mechanics), squared off against opposition in the form of the Council of Governors, the tyrannical Wilhelmina Scharnhorst and her nefarious henchmen among others. The show dealt with many strong ecologicial (one major focus was the question of how the dinosaurs managed to re-emerge after they were thought to be extinct) and political issues that were central to the plot development. As a result of that coupled with the placement amidst a programming schedule that consisted of shows mainly geared toward a younger demographic, it went virtually unnoticed. This show boasted superb animation and was surprisingly well-written. Many fans who can remember viewing it note the superior quality as one of the reasons they first started to enjoy the short-lived series. In total, Cadillacs and Dinosaurs lasted for one full season (13 episodes) and was never considered for renewal.moreless

    Welcome to the Care Bears: Adventures in Care-a-Lot guide at TV.com! In time for their 25th Anniversary, The Care Bears are back, and this time with a new design, and with new adventures in Care-A-Lot!The series, marking the return of the bears to the small screen (and the return of the animation rights to DiC since losing the rights of animating the series to Nelvana in the mid 80s), focuses on five of the Care Bears: Cheer Bear, Share Bear, Funshine Bear, Grumpy Bear, and introduced in the movie "Oopsy Does It!", Oopsy Bear. Cheer Bear is now the unofficial leader of the Care Bears as opposed to Tenderheart. All the other Care Bears do make cameo appearances from time to time. It is notable, however, that the Cousins are not in the series. The Care Bear stare is also now seldom used.The series sees a revamped and modernized Care-A-Lot with totally redesigned Care Bears and redesigned belly badges. Also following the tradition held since Care Bear movies made during the 2002 revival, the series features easier to follow stories with lots of humor and pop culture references thrown in, and lack of supernatural characters- villains or otherwise. The show remain devoid of human characters until the first DVD release, Grizz-ly Adventures. Indeed, the series is now more technologically-oriented, and the sole villain of the series is Grizzle, a bear who dons a mechanical suit, has robots to do his dirty bidding, speaks with a British accent, and is careless and almost always messes up (and on the rare occasion that his plans actually work, is quickly outwitted and misled into messing up by the Care Bears). The series features a theme song performed by Kay Hanley. Adventures in Care-a-Lot is currently enjoying its second season on CBS. Catch the program on either Saturday or Sunday as part of CBS's Kewlopolis block. Check listings for showtimes, as time and broadcast day varies based on your local market. And coming in 2009, watch for a new direction to the series-- the Care Power Team. From their Care Station, this newly formed team of Bedtime, Cheer, Funshine, Grumpy, Oopsy and Share handles caring emergencies throughout Care-a-Lot using enhanced belly badge powers. The fun begins with a new direct-to-DVD CGI movie, Share Bear Shines, in which Share Bear must save the day when the Twinklets don't arrive for annual visit to Care-a-Lot.moreless
