    NBC (ended 1990)
    Long ago, there was a thriving civilization of small humanoid bears called Gummi Bears. Possessing powerful magic and advanced technology, this race coexisted with humans until the growing rivalry forced the Gummis to flee across the sea, leaving only a small caretaker colony to prepare for a possible return. However, generations passed and the colony forgot their purpose even as human knowledge of the race faded into mere legend. All that changes when the colony meets a boy with a Gummi Bear medallion which unlocks the Great Book of Gummi which reveals lost knowledge of their past. Now the colony has dedicated themselves to the new goal to rediscover their heritage with the help of a few trusted humans while preventing new enemies like Duke Igthorn from exploiting that heritage to their own ends. Gummi Bears was part of what many consider Disney's "Golden Age" what that actually means is that is was when Disney had quality writers, characters, theme songs ect ect. Some other shows that were part of this time were The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Talespin, Ducktales, and Darkwing Duck The Gummi Bears had many secrets. All were built by the Ancient Gummis and a few by the present Gummis. Some of their many inventions and creations were Gummiberry Juice, Great Book of Gummi, Gummi Medallion, Quick Tunnels, Quick Cars, Mole Machine, Magical Gummi Statue, Ursalia Aqueduct, Long Range Quick Cars, Gumarine, Air Ship, Ursalia Horn, Gummi Scope, Wind Turbines, Great Quilt, Black Knight, Flying Machine, Gummi Dummy, The Oracle, Gummi Necklace, Changing Hat, and much much more! Disney is now releasing the animated programs to DVD with the first being Gargoyles (Last December) and then on November, 8, 2005 Disney will release a 3 DVD boxset of Duckales and Chip 'N Dale Rescue Rangers. Rumor is Gummi Bears will be paired up with a DVD box set of The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. Both sets will have a suggested retail price will be $34.99, so knock 30% off that at the register.moreless

    NBC (ended 1997)
    The series Wings, could best be described as Cheers 2, as it followed much the same pattern as the other series did. The similarities are numerous, such as both being easy going character comedies and being produced by the same team (David Angell, Peter Casey and David Lee). The main difference being the setting. Instead of a Boston bar being the main setting, a small airport terminal on the island of Nantucket was used as the main backdrop.

    The regular "gang" included brothers Joe and Brian Hackett, both pilots, who ran a one-plane local cummuter service called Sandpiper Air. They had little else in common. Joe was button-down, organized and serious, and Brian, a hang loose, free spirit. Thier mutual best friend since childhood was Helen, a once chubby but now beautiful aspiring concert cellist who ran the lunch counter. These three lifelong friends were the "three musketeers".

    The other regulars included, Faye, Sandpipers rather flighty but always perky, sixtyish ex-stewardess who ran the ticket counter; Lowell Mather, the eccentric airport mechanic and Roy, the loud mouth blow hard who ran rival airline Aeromass.moreless

    Alvin & the Chipmunks

    Alvin & the Chipmunks

    Follow
    NBC (ended 1991)
    This show focuses on three superstar chipmunks who have their own band and the crazy adventures they get into. It also features The Chipettes, their female counterparts and girlfriends. If you have any info, please contribute. Broadcast History ----------------- During its run, Alvin & the Chipmunks, existed in 2 forms... Alvin & the Chipmunks (or The Chipmunks (seasons 6-7)) (Seasons 1-7): All of the original episodes have aired on NBC. The Chipmunks Go To the Movies (Season 8): This also aired on NBC, but not as traditional episodes. All of the episodes were spoofs of famous movies. The Characters Alvin Seville Alvin is the oldest of the chipmunks, and also the lead singer of their group. He is most often the one who gets them into trouble, (usually in an attempt to get rich or famous) and tends to be selfish, self centered, and conceited at times. He really hates to be alone and is VERY vain about his looks, although he does suffer from 'small munk complex'. (his height). Regardless of all this, he is very protective of his brothers. Simon Seville Simon is the middle brother of the chipmunks and is considered the brain of the group. He is always the voice of reason and logic behind Alvin's crazy schemes, and usually (unsuccessfully), tries to talk him out of following these crazy ideas.. He is very level headed in tough situations and is a strong believer in following the rules-- though occasionally he does break them along with his brothers to make sure they don't get into too much trouble... In his spare time, he enjoys reading and studying. Theodore Seville Theodore is the youngest chipmunk, considered the nicest out of all the chipmunks and can get along with just about anyone-- although he does tend to be shy at times. He loves to eat and almost always seems to be hungry. He also enjoys cooking and baking in his spare time-- ( which helps explain his cute little plump figure) and tends to scare easily. He usually gets really nervous when he's around a girl he likes, and tends to be a little slow when it comes to learning in school. David "Dave" Seville Dave is the Chipmunks adoptive father, and also their manager. He found the boys after they were abandoned on his doorstep, and loves them as if they were his own. But Alvin is always driving him crazy with his schemes, causing him to yell his name in exasperation. Brittany Miller Brittany is the oldest of her sisters, and also the lead singer of their group. She can be egotistical and selfish, just like Alvin at times, and is EXTREMELY vain about her looks. She enjoys acting, modeling, and singing-- and is constantly competing with the Chipmunks over whose group is better. Since she is supposed to be the counterpart of Alvin, she too is always coming up with different ideas on how to get rich and famous. And again, just like Alvin, she tends to be very protective of her sisters-- although at times, it takes her awhile.... Jeanette Miller Jeanette is the brains of the group, and also the nice one, though she is very clumsy. Yet her personality doesn't resemble Simon's very much (except for her intelligence). In that respect, she is much more like Theodore. She is very kind towards her sisters, and tends to be quiet and shy. She is very confident about who she is, however, and doesn't seem to care what other people think about her. In her spare time she enjoys reading and studying. Eleanor Miller Just like Theodore, Eleanor loves to cook and bake, and because of it, is a little plump. Here though, the similarity ends. Her personality is not really like Theodore's at all: in reality, it's actually closer to Simon's than anyone else's. Like him, she is usually the one who tries to talk Brittany out of following her crazy schemes and tends to gets extremely annoyed and complains when her sister does something stupid. In a way, however, she is also a lot like Alvin: she is very athletic and good at almost every sport and would do anything to help her sisters. In this way, I think Eleanor is supposed to be a combination of all the Chipmunks, even though she is usually meant to represent Theodore's counterpart. Miss Beatrice Miller Miss Miller is the strange, eccentric, but nice, old lady who lives next door to the Chipmunks. She also happens to have a crush on Dave! She eventually ends up raising the Chipettes. Harry A sneaky, greedy, con-artist chipmunk who originally pretends to be the Chipmunks' long-lost mother's younger brother, in order to get them to work for him, with minimum wage: (or nothing at all). The Chipmunks eventually figure out that he's not really their uncle, and so successfully scheme to take the money he made off of them, and leave, returning to Dave. Harry, however, makes several more appearances throughout the television series. At his last, he even cons the Chipettes. Vinny, the Chipmunks' Mother Eventually, the Chipmunks go searching for their long-lost mother, Vinny, and after days of a treacherous search, actually manage to find her! At first, everyone's happy, but eventually Alvin gets upset since he doesn't understand why she abandoned them. Vinny explains that the year she abandoned them there was a horrible winter and all of the animals in the forest were forced to leave their homes because of it. The fact that they were so young, forced her to realize that they wouldn't survive the journey if she brought them with her. So instead, Vinny decided to leave them with a nice man who was always kind to the forest animals (Dave). She said, "Giving up her babies was the hardest thing she ever did," and then told them that when spring came and she could finally return to get them, she saw how happy they were with Dave, and thought they'd be better off with him. Eventually, Alvin forgives Vinny, and they all part ways on a good note: promising to keep in touch. Theme Song Lyrics "Watch out...cause here we come! It's been a while but we're back in style So get set to have some fun We'll bring you action and satisfaction We're the Chipmunks C-H-I-P-M-U-N-K We're the Chipmunks Guaranteed to brighten your day When you feel like a laugh Give us a call we'll give you our all And if you feel like a song Tune in to us and sing right along We're the Chipmunks Coming on stronger than ever before We're the Chipmunks Alvin, Simon, Theodore!

    "Every time I turn around, I see the girl who turns my world around..." Seven-year-old Punky Brewster certainly turned Henry Warnimont's world around. Henry was a grouchy old man who was set in his ways, until Punky came along and changed him in a way that was not thought possible...Henry became a happy man, determined to be the best parent he could be. According to reports from when this series was announced, there was a real Punky Brewster, but not quite like the one in the show. When NBC's programming head Brandon Tartikoff was a kid, he had a crush on a tomboyish older girl by that name. Years later, Tartikoff's first child was nicknamed Punky. He also thought it would be a great name for a series. NBC's attorneys tracked down the real Punky, who was married to an attorney in Connecticut, and got permission to use her name. The real "Punky", Peyton B. Rutledge, even appeared in the Season Two episode "The Search", as a teacher at Punky's school. The show's premise was as follows: After 7-year-old Penelope "Punky" Brewster and her beloved dog Brandon are abandoned at a shopping center by Punky's mother, Susan Brewster, Punky is taken in by Chicago photographer and apartment building manager Henry Warnimont, who lives on the apartment building's second floor. Henry's friend, Betty Johnson, lives upstairs from Henry. Betty is a registered nurse who has had custody of her granddaughter, Cherie, ever since Cherie's parents died in a car accident. When the show first started, it was aired on Sunday nights after the weekly televised NFL football game, which would sometimes run overtime into Punky Brewster's 7:30 PM time slot. Instead of cancelling the show because of this, they would make 15 minute episodes to air whenever the football game ran into the show's time slot. Six of these 15 minute episodes were made. Whenever the show is in syndicated reruns, these six 15 minute episodes are aired in three 30 minute packages of two 15 minute episodes each. After Punky Brewster's first two seasons, the show went into first-run syndication for its last two seasons.

    NBC (ended 1987)
    Silver Spoons started as a series built around the idea of Ricky Stratton teaching his father Edward to grow up while Edward taught Ricky to be a kid. In the series opening twelve-year-old Ricky arrives at his unsuspecting father's mansion to introduce himself and move in. His mother Evelyn had placed him in military school after she remarried and thought Ricky would be in the way. Edward Stratton III was the epitome of the words "overgrown child" never having taken responsibility for anything in his lifetime. His lifestyle was that of a ten-year-old going as far as having video games and a scale freight train in the livingroom. Needless to say, he was surprised to discover that his seven day marriage to Evelyn Bluedhorn had produced a son. After originally sending Ricky back to boarding school, Edward changed his mind and brought his son home. Throughout the five years Silver Spoons, many changes occurred in the Stratton household. Ricky became a carefree, fun loving teenager while Edward became a responsible, loving father and husband. Edward courted and married his personal assistant, Kate Summers, and she provided them both with a loving, stable environment. The shows were filled with quality family entertainment while sharing messages about values, morals, the problems of growing up in the 1980s, along with a few very touching moments. The series success can be attributed to its very talented cast. Ricky Schroder was still riding high on the fame gained from his appearance in The Champ for which he won a Golden Globe Award. Erin Gray was and still is remembered for her role as Colonel Wilma Deering in Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, and Joel Higgins had just finished Best of the West the season before. With guest stars that included Joey Lawrence, Matthew Perry, Sharon Stone, Sydney Penny, Mr. T, Gary Coleman, Whitney Houston, and the legendary actors John Houseman and Ray Walston, Silver Spoons ended with thousands of fans reaching from Canada to New Zealand and everywhere in between. TV Theme Song: "Together" sang by Bob Wirth and Rick Howard Lyrics Here we are face to face A couple of silver spoons We're hoping to find We're two of a kind Making a go, making it grow Together, we're going to find our way Together, taking the time each day To learn all about those things you just can't buy Two silver spoons together You and I together (We're going to find our way) You and I together (We're going to find our way) You and I togethermoreless
