    B.J. and the Bear

    Follow
    NBC (ended 1981)
    What kind of trouble can a monkey and a trucker get into? This classic series explores just that! BJ McKay was a good-looking young trucker who traveled around the country in his big red & white rig, with a single companion - his pet chimp, Bear. B.J. was based in rural Georgia and was confronted by a succession of corrupt local sheriffs - Elroy P. Lobo (who was later given his own series, Lobo); Sgt. Wiley of Winslow County and his two fellow lawmen, Sheriffs Cain and Masters. The only honest cop B.J. seemed to encounter was the Fox, who spent much of her time trying to trap the crooked local cops. Tommy was a lady trucker friend and Bullets ran the local hangout, the Country Comfort Truck Stop. In 1981, B.J. settled down to run a trucking business in Los Angeles called Bear Enterprises. His new adversary was Rutherford T. Grant, a corrupt politician who headed the state Special Crimes Action Team. Grant was a silent partner in TransCal, the largest trucking firm in California and stopped at nothing to stomp out potential competition. Because of Grant's intervention, B.J. found it impossible to get regular truck drivers to work for him and had to settle for a crew of 7 young, beautiful lady truckers, including a pair of identical twins and Grant's daughter, Cindy. The Theme Song was written by Glen A Larson and sung by Greg Eviganmoreless

    Suddenly Susan

    Suddenly Susan

    Follow
    NBC (ended 2000)
    Workplace situation comedy centered on the character of Susan, a "somewhat sheltered" magazine writer who has dumped her rich fiancé at the altar and must now cope with being suddenly single - complicated by the fact that her boss at hip San Francisco magazine The Gate is her ex's brother Jack. He has promoted her from copy editor to writer of a column on being single in the '90s, thus irritating her co-workers: caustic lifestyle columnist Vicki, Cuban playboy photographer Luis, and rock critic Todd (whose limited attention span after years of MTV necessitates his being celibate). Susan's main support is her loving grandmother Nana. In highly publicized trouble before it ever aired, Suddenly Susan had to switch formats from a bookstore (shades of Ellen) to a magazine workplace setting - sort of Mary Richards going to work for Lou Grant at the Trib. Despite some bright writing and reasonably funny performances (especially from Brooke Shields, who got surprising mileage out of the problems inherent in being very tall and attractive), the show never quite jelled, perhaps because the characters were never even remotely credible as functioning journalists. Susan was put on hiatus to make room for NBC's retooling of The Naked Truth. It later returned to the NBC schedule in late February 1997 and subsequently did well enough to be renewed for the Fall 1997 television season. In Germany the show is known simply as Susan.moreless

    Hank and his sister are orphans. They don't wish to be put in an orphanage, so Hank uses make-up and disguises to fool the authorities into believing that they are being cared for by an adult. Hank's scheme snow balls as he is forced to lie and pretend to be all sorts of people in order to keep the charade going without being caught. All the while, Hank is trying to get himself a good education (pretending to be someone he's not) so that he can better support his sister and remain independent. The final episode had him impersonating another student who was supposed to be under quarantine. He is finally caught after all his close calls during the run of the show. But, in his disguise, he had taken a standard exam and had scored the highest score ever recorded. He is assured of a scholarship and all his hard work is rewarded. The show ends with his future at the college assured.moreless

    Follow
    NBC (ended 1987)
    A rotund black housekeeper maintained order in the home of a portly white police chief in this old-fashioned comedy set in the fictional town of Glen Lawn, California. Policeman Carl's beloved wife Margaret had died only months before, leaving him with three, winsome daughters, ranging in age from cute grade-schooler to troublesome teen. Wisecracks and fat jokes abounded, but there was a lot of love as Nell tried to befriend and surrogate mother to the clan. Officer Simpson was a dopey police officer who was frequently seen, and Joey was a six-year-old orphan and junior-grade hustler who joined the household in the 1983-1984 season. As the 1985-1986 season opened the chief had passed away (actor Dolph Sweet had died), and Nell became both mother and father to the Kanisky brood. The man of the house was now Jonathan, who had married Julie at the end of the 1984-1985 season and moved in. The ratings started to slip from its usual place that season, and the network was so worried about that, and what they felt was a decline in the quality of the writing, that Hal Cooper, the executive producer, was told by NBC executives to either end production of the series or make major changes. By 1986, with the Kanisky girls grown and/or college-bound, Nell and her best friend Addy decided to leave Glen Lawn for New York City, with Grandpa and little Joey in tow. There they discovered Joey's irresponsible father Tim, who turned over Joey's younger brother Matthew (played by Joey Lawrence's real-life brother) and departed, adding a second child to the shifting household. Marty was Nell's nutty New York landlord, who also owned the restaurant El Gaspacho downstairs, where he put on a phony Spanish accent and called himself "Esteban". The changes didn't help the ratings any, nor did two different time slots that season, and the show quietly ended its network run in the spring of 1987.

    NBC (ended 1991)
    The Hogan Family began in March of 1986 and was originally titled Valerie. Starring Valerie Harper as Valerie Hogan, Valerie was the wife to Michael Hogan, an airline pilot. His job took him away from home quite regularly so Valerie was left to raise their three sons, David, and the fraternal twins, Mark and Willie. David was the oldest and girl crazy, Mark was the brain and a perfectionist and Willie was the carefree clown who seemed to always be in trouble. At the beginning of the third season, a well publicized dispute between Valerie Harper and the producers led to her leaving the show. Despite the fact that two episodes had been produced for the third season, one including Valerie Harper, they were both shelved and the show changed titles to Valerie's Family. In the show, it was explained that Valerie had suddenly died and now, Michael's recently divorced sister, Sandy, is moving in to help raise the boys. Stories revolved around the boys growing up and dating as well as Michael and Sandy each getting out in the dating scene. In 1988, the title was changed again, this time to The Hogan Family. At the end of the 5th season, NBC dropped the show however, CBS picked it up for another season, adding John Hillerman as the character of Lloyd Hogan, Michael and Sandy's father.

    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

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.

    Gumby first appeared in the 1953 film short Gumbasia, (believed to be one of the first music videos). In 1956 Gumby and his horse friend Pokey hit the airways on The Howdy Doody Show in their first shorts in 1956. It was so popular that it became its own show in 1957 called The Gumby Show. The show contained the 1956 shorts along with new ones. Each episode contained 3 cartoons. In the 1960's Goo the blue mermaid, Prickle the yellow dinosaur, and Nopey the dog were introduced. The Blockheads sometimes chased after Gumby, Pokey, Prickle, and Goo with some scheme. Gumbo and Gumba were Gumby's Dad and Mother.

    The show stopped in 1967 due to problems in Art Clokey's family and another cartoon. In the 1970's Gumby was totally ignored. The 1980's brought back new life to Gumby with tons of toys and new episodes in a new series called Gumby Adventures in 1988. And a movie in 1995.

    Ever since Art Clokey created new episodes in the 80s, he dubbed out the original background music and character voices with new ones.

    Gumby is currently off the air. It was first shown on NBC through the 1950's till 1967. In the 1980's it was shown on Fox. In the mid-1990's reruns were shown on Nickelodeon. In the late 1990's it was shown on Cartoon Network at 1:00 am. It has been off the air since 2001.moreless

    NBC (ended 1993)
    Welcome to the The Torkelsons [aka Almost Home] guide at TV.com.

    This show was a comedy about a sensitive 14-year-old girl who's mortified by her crazy-quilt unorthodox family. Dorothy Jane just wanted to be thought of as normal, like any teenager, but had a hard time doing so. Her father had walked out on the family and they were always short on money. Her perky, optimistic mom, Millicent, saw sunshine everywhere. The rest of the family consisted of brothers - athletic Steven Floyd and studious Chuckie Lee, and sisters - spunky Ruth Ann and cute Mary Sue. They lived in a big rambling house in Pyramid Corners, Oklahoma. The name for the show came from a real Steven Floyd Torkelson who shared his bug collection and a first kiss with a little girl named Lynn Montgomery. She grew up to create the show some 30 years later.

    The series, which appeared on NBC, apparently turned out to be too down home for most people as it never found much of an audience in its original Saturday night timeslot and even less of one when it was moved to Sundays. After a second hiatus the series was revamped to return in February 1993 as Almost Home. For the new series the family moved to Seattle, WA [expect for Steven Floyd and Ruth Ann - who were wrote off and never mentioned again], where Millicent took a job as a nanny for two spoiled teenage children of widower Brian Morgan.

    The new season, which mostly pitted conservative family values against liberal family values, did not do any better in the ratings and was cancelled after 13 episodes.

    Season One Theme:

    People say God looks out for the working man Sure hope he's looking out for me These empty pockets need a helping hand Kitchen table's full of family

    But then the sun comes up [sun comes up] And the moon is shining big and bright And the new day promises [promises] That everything will be alright

    And the new day promises that everything will be alright.

    Season Two Theme:

    Just when you think you've settled down And you feel like you're almost home Just when the wheel starts spinnin round Love sneaks in with a plan of it's own

    Love comes in unexpected places Life turns in unexpected ways I swear we'll laugh, at these days [at these days] Love comes in unexpected places Life turns in unexpected ways

Without any hints or suggestions from God, Bob is all on his own to prove that humanity deserves to be saved.
