    NBC (ended 1966)
    Hazel debuted in the fall of 1961 and was an instant hit, ending the 1st season ranking number 4 in the 1961-1962 Nielsen's ratings. Based on the Saturday Evening Post cartoons, the series centered around Hazel Burke, a maid, who for the first four seasons worked for the Baxter family. George Baxter was the head of the family which consisted of his wife, Dorothy and their son, Harold. Hazel ran the household and often preempted George's authority. The next door neighbors, Herbert and Harriet Johnson were occasionally seen. When the series moved to CBS in the fall of 1965, Hazel was given a new family to look after. George and Dorothy were transferred to the Middle East leaving Hazel and Harold behind. They moved in with George's brother, Steve and his family, which consisted of Steve's wife, Barbara and their daughter Susie.

    The season after the original Saved by the Bell series ended, Peter Engel Productions and NBC rolled out Saved by the Bell: The New Class, also set at Bayside High School but featuring a new group of young actors, with original cast members Dennis Haskins (Principal Richard Belding) and Dustin Diamond ("Screech" Powers, who came along in season 2) providing some continuity. Although it never was as popular as the original series, The New Class had enough staying power to last for seven seasons, providing an anchor for the Saturday morning "TNBC" (teen NBC) lineup, even with its necessarily revolving-door cast, which featured a lot of bright and attractive young actors. Reruns have been shown on the USA Network for a number of years, but as of August 2001, they are not scheduled anymore.moreless

    My Mother the Car

    My Mother the Car

    Follow
    NBC (ended 1966)
    For almost fifty years, My Mother the Car has remained a punchline, easily the most infamous of all the "What idiot thought THIS was a good idea?" sitcoms to hit the air. Just how did a comedy about the spirit of a man's dead mother inhabiting an old automobile get on TV? In hindsight, it had to happen. During the 1960s, the network schedules were overrun with comedies based on completely unrealistic and usually lame-brained premises. There was a talking horse (Mr. Ed), a Martian being passed off as an uncle (My Favorite Martian), a genie servant to an astronaut (I Dream of Jeannie), a playboy with a robot girlfriend (My Living Doll), an average American family made up of movie monsters (The Munsters), another family of creepy oddballs (The Addams Family), and the most unrealistic family of weirdos of them all, the Nelsons (The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet). In this context, it's not such a leap for a woman planted six feet under to possess (or repossess) a car. The premise, in a nutshell, is that Dave Crabtree is a lawyer whose momma takes a break from pushing up daisies to return and take over the body of a 1928 Porter. She talks to him through the radio speaker. His wife is Barbara and his two young kids are Randy and Cindy. The wealthy, evil Captain Manzini is always trying to get his hands on Dave's car to complete his automobile collection. As with anything, it's the execution of the idea that matters most. A show such as Bewitched demonstrates how charm, a great cast, and the right "touch" can turn an unbelievable premise into an entertaining series. MMTC, on the other hand, was extremely pedestrian. Despite the lurid hook, it was a rather lame undertaking. None of the characters on the series had any actual character or personality; they were just "types." The only thing that could be said about Dave Crabtree (Jerry Van Dyke), the dutiful son is that he was a trusting and dull dullard. His wife and kids were as generic and forgettable as they come. His arch nemesis, Captain Manzini, would have been more at home as a villain on Batman, but only on the weeks the writers decided he should be. The 1928 Porter, as seen in the series, did not exist. A 1924 Ford T-tub hot rod, built by Norman Grabowski, was modified to turn it into the car seen on the series. A second "effects car" was built by George Barris for the scenes requiring the car to seemingly drive itself, move its headlights, and the like. Despite a universal lambasting by the critics and lousy ratings, MMTC was kept on the air by NBC for a full season opposite Rawhide on CBS and Combat on ABC. It probably is remembered today thanks to Johnny Carson, who made it a frequent punchline for years to come. Legacy:
    -In 2002, TV Guide named My Mother the Car the second worst show of all time. It was beat only by The Jerry Springer Show.
    -Ann Sothern, the voice of Mother, readily admitted to the press that she took the job because it was easy money, calling it radio acting with a TV paycheck It is said she soon regretted having done the series.moreless

    Rocky and Bullwinkle began life in the 1950's television show, The Frostbite Falls Review. It was created by Jay Ward and Bill Scott. Their names in that show were Rocket J. Squirrel and Canadian Moose. The Frostbite Falls Review was not very successful so Rocky and Bullwinkle became the stars of their own show, Rocky and His Friends. The show was co-created by Alex Anderson and premiered on November 29th, 1959 on ABC. Added to the cast were Boris and Natasha, two Pottsylvanian spies. The show also featured various segments; Peabody's Improbable History, Fractured Fairy Tales, Mr. Know-It-All, and Aesop and Son. In 1961, the show moved to NBC and was renamed The Bullwinkle Show. In 1964 the creators moved the show back to ABC where it was cancelled at the end of that season. The next year the show did reappear back on ABC; Bullwinkle and Rocky were replaced by Hoppity Hooper, while the other segments remained. The show ran on ABC until 1974. It was then syndicated under the name of The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle. In 1996, The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle was picked up by Turner Broadcasting's Cartoon Network. It has since moved to the classic cartoon network, Boomerang where it is still running today.moreless

    Five-time Emmy Award winner John Larroquette ("Night Court," "The John Larroquette Show") returns to primetime television when he stars with fellow Emmy winner Christine Baranski ("Cybill") as would-be empty-nesters whose twenty-something children just can't seem to get the hang of flying solo in this adult comedy from executive producers Moses Port and David Guarascio (both "Mad About You," NBC's "Just Shoot Me"). Peter and Annie Brennan (Larroquette and Baranski) are anxious to begin celebrating life as a couple again now that their children are all grown up, but it just doesn't seem to be in the cards. Their youngest (and definitely, not brightest), Tim (Tyler Francavilla, "Boston Public"), should be graduating from junior college, but instead he's moving in with the "older" woman-next-door -- his mom's thirty-something tennis partner, Maggie (Susan Gibney, NBC's "Crossing Jordan"). Their eldest, Todd (Jeff Davis, "The Downer Channel"), is the apple of his dad's eye and is engaged to a great girl – and having an affair with yet another great girl. And daughter Sara (Melanie Paxson, "Behind the Camera: The Unauthorized Story of ‘Three's Company'"), the over-achieving family success story, is in the midst of a major emotional meltdown. Pamela Fryman (NBC's "Just Shoot Me") directs the pilot from a script by Port and Guarascio in this production from NBC Studios. (Simulcast in HDTV)moreless
