    Follow
    CBS (ended 1974)
    In the early 1970's Hanna-Barbera created this classic series starring a special car named Speed Buggy, created by his mechanic and best friend Tinker. Despite his small size, he can be a race car and can be utilized for various uses like flying, digging, and even floating on water as a boat. He's also very acrobatic. When Speed Buggy isn't racing, he's out thrwarting the diabolical plots of various megalomaniacs looking to rule the world with various insane plans. Along with Tinker, Speedy is helped by their friends Mark and Debbie, the latter usually having to use her charm to sweet talk the guys into getting into action to stop the bad guys. This series has some similarities to Josie and the P u s s y cats, which also had its gang stopping megalomaniacs of their own. In fact, a few episodes of both series are carbon copies of each other. Regardless, Speed Buggy does work out on its own, even though it only lasted one season (1973-74). The show originally aired Saturday mornings on CBS, and was rerun on NBC, ABC, and syndication before it was picked up on Cartoon Network, and eventually Boomerang, which is the home of many Hanna-Barbera classic shows, including Scooby's All-Star Laff-A-Lympics, in which Speed Buggy and Tinker returned as part of the Scooby Doobies team. Other than this Speed Buggy is sporatically referenced on various Cartoon Network series including The Powerpuff Girls, and even made a cameo appearance on Johnny Bravo, which proves that the little spunky car may have been gone a long time, but not forgotten as he has a special place in the hearts of fans and other cartoon viewers alike.moreless

    CBS (ended 1965)
    Ken Preston (Robert Reed), a young, idealistic lawyer not too long out of law school, joins his father Lawrence Preston (E.G. Marshall) in the family law firm in New York. In this acclaimed, award-winning series, the pair tackle challenging legal cases, often involving issues often considered controversial in the early 1960s (abortion, euthanasia, "un-American" activities, movie censorship); the plots often have less to do with resolving a mystery than with debating an issue. The series began in 1961, and was inspired by a two-part TV play which series creator Reginald Rose wrote a few years earlier - The Defender (title in the singular), where William Shatner played Ken Preston and his father (originally called "Walter") was played by Ralph Bellamy.moreless

    By the year 2104, mankind has spread among the stars. Fort Hope, on the planet Avalon, is one of the far-flung outposts of trade and diplomacy. Maintaining order on the wild, new frontier is the responsibility of the Space Rangers. Fort Hope's best Ranger team is commanded by Captain John Boon. His pilot is Jojo Thorsen, a lithe, tough blonde from the planet of New Venus, where no men live. The flight engineer is Doc, who has been wounded so many times that much of his body – including his heart – has been replaced by artificial parts. Zylyn is a missionary from the Grakka, a race of fierce warriors who have renounced their old ways to embrace peace, but still continually battle their buried emotions. And the newest member of the team, Daniel Kincaid, a general's son who's quick on the draw but still wet behind the ears. The team flies into action in Ranger Slingship 377, the Lizzy. The commander of Fort Hope is Commander Chennault, backed by Colonel Weiss, who would rather be back in civilization in Central Command. Due to low ratings, this midseason replacement was cancelled after four episodes were aired on CBS. The two filmed but unaired episodes were later shown in Australia before all six episodes were eventually released on Region 2 (UK) and Region 4 (Australia) DVD sets.moreless

    Follow
    CBS (ended 1979)
    Clue Club was a cartoon about four precocious young investigators (Dotty, Larry, D.D. and Pepper) who solved crimes with the help of two bloodhounds, Woofer and Wimper. Dotty, the brains of the team, would stay at home and analyze any clues that the gang found. The older dog, Woofer, thought he was a very good detective so he would always take the credit for solving the case. The laughs in the show were provided by Woofer and Wimper, due to their fear of the spooky places the gang went. The show only had one year of first run episodes, after which it aired in repeats on The Skatebirds under the new title Woofer and Wimper, Dog Detectives. These repeats were severely edited, which made the show particularly hard to follow. In January 1978, The Three Robonic Stooges was split off from the Skatebirds show and took the Woofer And Wimper segment with them. After a year on The Skatebirds, CBS reinstated the full episodes and re-ran them on Sundays under the original title. The show ran for another four months, cancelled in September of 1979. Theme Song: There they go, and on the double, to the spot where there is trouble Clue Club! Wimper: Clue Club makes the scene! Woofer: You better believe it, boy! Dotty does her thing computin', checking clues and trouble-shootin' Clue Club! Wimper: Clue Club, it's routine! Woofer: You go in first, Wimper!

    The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour

    Follow
    CBS (ended 1970)
    Considered by many as a "poster show" for the First Amendment, The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour didn't quite begin that way.
    Less than a year after the cancellation of a sitcom also on CBS, the network gave Tom and Dick Smothers another chance with a variety series. This time, the formula worked. The sibling rivalry continued with aplomb, and the show was a better showcase for their musical and comedic talents. Not to mention the high-caliber talent who guested on the show: Mickey Rooney, George Segal, Kenny Rogers, and Liberace, to name just a few. The show was also a showcase for new talent and a venue for hot music. Mason Williams, Steve Martin, Bob Einstein, and Rob Reiner cut their teeth in the entertainment business with this show. Among the highlights in the music department: The Doors, The Who (whose "smashing" appearance ranks among VH1's Greatest Moments In Rock And Roll History), George Harrison, and Paul Revere And The Raiders. The show was also a hotbed of controversy, more or less. Through 72 episodes over 2½ seasons, and depending on the source of the story, The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour was either working their butts off to make the CBS network happy over bits and pieces of their programs being censored, or were just being outright rebellious to see how much they could put on the air. In April 1969, the flashpoint happened: the show was cancelled, despite protests. The battle over the show would actually end in 1973, when a court ruled the Smothers firing to be illegal (they had been officially renewed weeks before their cancellation), and that their First Amendment rights had been violated. The win was financially small compared to the multi-millions won in lawsuits today, but the moral win was a lot bigger: the door opened for more venues or creativity. There remains some question, however, if Free Speech in the form of political satire is still really free. Tom Smothers expressed this in his appearance on the American Public Television series Speaking Freely.moreless

    Suspense

    Suspense

    Follow
    CBS (ended 1954)
    Suspense was one of network television's earliest series and, like many of the medium's first efforts, was adapted from a long-running radio program. Episodes began with a ominous off-camera voice announcing, "And now, a tale well calculated to keep you in...Suspense!" With a few exceptions, this anthology was not an outright "horror" program (as was Lights Out or Inner Sanctum) but was designed to put characters in dangerous or threatening situations that built to a suspenseful climax. The somewhat low-budget series was performed live each week so it had its share of flubbed lines and technical snafus and episodes were generally confined to a couple of minimal sets. Suspense, however, made up for these shortcomings with inventive writing and a cavalcade of top-notch actors, some already established and many up-and-coming future stars. The program was rather highly regarded for it's overall quality (for the time) and the calibre of it's scripts. Like practically all of TV's earliest live series, Suspense was never rerun, preserved only on kinescope films to be shown in markets not able to air network programs live from New York. Most episodes were considered lost but, as luck would have it, a huge cache of Suspense programs were "discovered" and released on DVD in 2007.moreless

    Chicago's Clark Street Hospital was the setting for this comedy about the staff and patients of the hospital's emergency room. Howard Sheinfeld (Elliott Gould) was the sarcastic, talkative doctor who oversaw most of the emergency room treatment. An ear-nose-and-throat specialist, he moonlighted at the hospital doing 48-hour shifts to help him keep up with alimony payments to two ex-wives.

    Dr. Eve Sheridan (Marcia Strassman in the pilot than played by (Mary McDonnell), his no-nonsense boss at the hospital, wished he would take things a little more seriously and not work such long shifts. Harold Stickley (Jason Alexander) was the hospital administrator, George Clooney as Mark "Ace" Kolmar, the med tech, Joan Thor(Conchata Ferrell), was the head nurse and Lynne Moody as Nurse Julie Williams.

    The series was based off of a popular stage production of the time. It featured the the hit "I've Got a Real Emergency, Here" (sung by Lou Rawls, written by Jimmy Webb) as its theme song.
