    Every week (well, most of the time...) a character from the Disney Pantheon hosts the series with a lesson on their area of expertease. Or at least they TRY to teach a lesson...The host then leads the episode into the show's three regular segments:

    HE'S BONKERS! - These were the shorts that Bonkers D. Bobcat was making before he got fired and became a police officer. Bonkers often has a deadline he has to meet, but in the process he winds up causing a lot of pain for his sidekick, Jitters A. Dog. But appreciation from the lovely Fawn Deer keeps him going.

    TOTALLY TASTELESS VIDEOS - Parodies of various movies and TV shows.

    MARSUPILAMI - Andre Franquin's popular character stars in his own shorts, here a wacky jungle creature with a best friend named Maurice the Ape and an arch-villain named Norman

    Only 12 episodes were made of this fairly unpopular series. However, two of the shorts continued on in their own series afterwards. Marsupilami got his own show as did Bonkers.

    The series later aired on Toon Disney for a few years but currently no longer airs in the US since the network became Disney XD.moreless

    Teen Yogi is the 90's incarnation of Jellystone's favorite bear.

    Joining the parade of brand new cartoons starring teenage versions of celebrity toons (Flintstone Kids and Tom and Jerry Kids, to name a few), Hanna-Barbera debuted Yo, Yogi! in 1991. The series starred none other than Jellystone Park's pride and joy, Yogi Bear, making his first new appearance on network television in twelve years.

    In this latest incarnation, the former thorn in Ranger Smith's side appeared as a crime-fighting teenager, along with his faithful sidekick Boo Boo. They spent most of their time solving mysteries and hanging out at Jellystone Mall. Yo, Yogi! also saw the return of many other characters from the Hanna-Barbera stable (also in teenage versions), including Cindy Bear, Dastardly and Muttley, Snagglepuss, and Huckleberry Hound.

    Yo, Yogi! also featured a new segment never seen in a Yogi Bear cartoon before: Yogi in 3D! Perhaps due to less-than-stellar ratings, the series began airing a short 3D segment during each episode. Viewers had to send away for a special pair of 3D glasses through an offer from Rice Krispies cereal.

    Yogi may have jumped off the screen, but the ratings were still flat, resulting in the show's cancellation a few months later. The series appeared in syndication the following fall as part of The Funtastic World of Hanna-Barbera, but that was the last the world would see of this jolly, rappin' teen bear. The adult Yogi returned in 1999 for the TV special Ranger Smith, directed by Ren & Stimpy creator John Kricfalusi.moreless

    Welcome to the Wish Kid guide at TV.com! Wish Kid was a Saturday morning animated series created to play off the success of pre-teen movie star Macaulay Culkin. This show opened with Macaulay in a live-action appearance in which he explained the show's premise. Nick McClary (Culkin) owned a magic baseball glove which, if punched three times, granted his every wish he desired. The only catch was that the glove could be used just once per week. Stories revolved around Nick's wishes and the trouble that usually followed. Nick's best friend was Darryl, the only one in on the glove's secrets and usually became involved in the adventures. Nick was frequently harassed by Frankie Dutweiler, the neighborhood bully. Other characters included, neighbor Mrs. Opal, Nick's Mom and Dad and his baby sister, Katie. The show ran one year on NBC, with new episodes airing on the Family Channel in 1996 (along with the original 13 NBC episodes). Wish Kid is a DiC Enterprises production. Contributations are welcome.moreless

Not long ago I was living in New Jersey just across the river from New York City. It was crowded, polluted, and full of crime. I loved it. But my parents wanted a better life for my sister and me - so we moved to a place so wholesome, so squeaky clean, you could only find it on TV. Unfortunately, nothing could be further from the truth. Sure, my new home town *looks* normal enough, but look again. What's wrong with this picture? The American dream come true, right? Wrong. Nobody believes me, but this is the center of weirdness for the entire planet. Eerie, Indiana. My home sweet home. Still don't believe me? You will." Created by José Rivera, Eerie, Indiana is about thirteen-year-old Marshall Teller (Omri Katz), who has been uprooted from his beloved home town in New Jersey to Eerie, Indiana, which seems at first to be the most normal place in the world. But Marshall soon discovers that there's more to Eerie than meets the eye. Underneath the illusion of normality, Eerie is swarming with weird stuff. Women who seal themselves in giant kitchenware, werewolves, even Elvis, who lives on Marshall's paper route.

    NBC (ended 1991)
    The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 was based on the hugely successful NES game, Super Mario Bros. 3. It was aired as two episodes along with the second season of Captain N: The Game Master. See that guide for the Captain N cast list and episodes. The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 was produced by DIC. Words to the Opening Sequence: It is a legend no one will forget. Everyone thought King Koopa had left the Mushroom Kingdom. And then his Doom Ship attacked! King Koopa was back with the greatest danger ever known: his Koopa kids. Using their new super powers, the Super Mario Brothers rescued Princess Toadstool and beat back the evil Koopa family. King Koopa: I'll get those plumbers! At first the Koopalings did not have real names because at the the time when the company was making the cartoon they did not know what their names would be, so they made up names for each of the Koopa kids. So the Koopa kids not having their real names in this cartoon is not a mistake or goof. Here are their real and cartoon names: Wendy = Kootie Pie Larry = Cheatsy Ludwig = Kooky Morton = Big Mouth Roy = Bully Lemmy = Hip Iggy = Hop NOTE: For continuity's sake, please refer to the koopalings by their cartoon names in your submissions. Also King Koopa (Bowser) not looking the way he does in the games is not a goof either. NOTE: Though he was called Bowser a few times in this cartoon, he is mainly known as King Koopa, so the guide will usually refer to him as Koopa for continuity's sake. Please refer to him as Koopa in your submissions. NOTE: On the cartoons, Princess Toadstool was never called Peach (her name in all the current games), so the guide will usually refer to her as Princess or Princess Toadstool for continuity's sake. Please refer to her as Princess in your submissions.moreless

    NBC (ended 2000)
    Tony Award nominee Tony Shalhoub and Neil Patrick Harris return to series television in this comedy series from Emmy Award winner Steven Levitan. Harris stars as Henry McNeely, a young, book editor who is thrust into the dark and chaotic world of best-selling horror writer Ian Stark. Providing distractions as Henry tries to keep Stark on track, are Stark's dazed writing assistant Jake Donavan, sassy bartender/college student Maddie Keller and Stark's overly affectionate dog, Edgar. (NBC press release)

    Yet another could've-been hit blundered by the collaborative incompetence of former entertainment president Garth Ancier and former (notice a pattern?) West Coast president Scott Sassa, Stark Raving Mad received a full season pickup. And that's where the network's support began and ended. Stark never clicked with the audience watching the show it followed on the schedule, Frasier, rendering it a time slot hit -- and not much of one at that. Though common sense would have suggested that's because their brand of humor was incompatible... well, it was on NBC, after all. After the original 13 episodes were broadcast by January, 2000, (at which time Regis Philbin stepped in and sent the show into a deep Nielsen gorge), the series bounced off and on -- mostly off -- the schedule, and nearly half of the back nine that the network ordered in November, 1999 were never broadcast at all. Although NBC executives believe that sitcoms that don't work on Thursday won't work anywhere, your editor doesn't. He does, though, wonder what might have been had Stark Raving Mad aired on Tuesday after Just Shoot Me -- which it was perfectly compatible with. Guess we'll never know. Besides, three years later, and Ancier's/Sassa's even more incompetent replacement, Jeff Zucker, was playing the same hide-and-seek games with JSM that they were with SRM.

    "Batty, bonkers, crazy, loopy, loony, hazy Chaotic, neurotic, peculiar and amazing Demented, deranged, particularly strange Frantic, ranting, shaky, flaky, making me insane." -- theme song

    Stark Raving Mad is produced by Steven Levitan Productions, in association with 20th Century Fox Television

    Dark Skies is set in the 1960s and includes a government employee, John Loengard, and his fiance Kimberly Sayers. John's quest for the truth leads him to Majestic-12, a secret government operation (above all offices and law) dealing with extra-terrestrials. At first the show seems to be just another show about Government spies and greyliens, but look closer and you will see much deeper. The plot thickens. The Greys, it seems, are only hosts for the real aliens, called the Hive. The Hive are much more dangerous than was previously imaginable with the Greys. This horrible truth is to be kept from the American people by Captain Bach, the leader of super-secret government organization called Majestic-12. The two main characters are on the run from the alien Hive and from the Government, and their travels lead them all over the country as they learn more and learn to fear more. Many historical figures are woven into the Dark Skies story, an important part of the turbulent ambience in which the characters exist. Many bear witness to the conspiracy involving "Majestic 12."moreless

The show was very similar in style to Saved by the Bell, however with an urban setting and more diverse cast. The show was mainly driven by six main characters who had to stay on the ball in high school and avoid trouble, while their principal attempted to keep them in line. The characters dealt with the typical teen issues, such as cheating on tests, peer pressure and dealing with school violence. It was one of Two TNBC shows not to have constant cast changes like Hang Time and Saved by the Bell: New Class.moreless

He and Duke join the N Team consisting of Princess Lana (the ruler of Videoland), Simon Belmont (the hero from "Castlevania"), Mega Man, Kid Icarus, and later Gameboy (a supercomputer that looks like a Game Boy system).

Princess Lana: Princess Lana took over as ruler of Videoland after her father King Charles disappeared.

He has speech impendiment when he puts the suffix "-icus" after a few words. Mega Man: Mega Man was created by Dr. Light. He is extremely strong due to a mighty arm cannon and is very strong. Like Kid Icarus, he also has a speech impendiment by putting mega in front of a few words. Simon Belmont: Vampire hunter Simon Belmont is extremely vain.

Eggplant Wizard: Eggplant Wizard is the villain from Mount Icarus. He and King Hippo tend to bungle up tasks that Mother Brain send him on.

He's not much like his father. He skateboards and is pretty much a punk. Donkey Kong: Donkey Kong is the giant ape of Kongoland. Although he's not truly evil, he must be appeased with food or else he'll wreak havoc upon the people of Kongoland. Gannon: Gannon is the master of evil on Hyrule.

    Molly Dodd is a 30-something, creative woman who makes interesting career choices and struggles with complex relationships with men and with her family. Molly's best friend, Nina Shapiro, also makes appearances here and there. Each episode begins with someone close to Molly commenting on some facet of her personality or her life. Elements of magical realism run throughout the series, for instance, when Molly communicates with the ghost of a relative (to tell who would be a spoiler). Molly has trouble saying "no" to people, like her mysterious cousin Mike from Baltimore who moves in with her and stays longer than he's welcome. Molly eventually seeks therapy but is turned away by her therapist when she falls in love with Molly. Some of the most notable men in Molly's life are her father; her ex-husband Fred, a sax player who keeps returning to toy with her emotions; Davey, the elevator man in her apartment building; Moss Goodman, the owner of a bookstore, who is seriously socially handicapped but charming as all get out (on right in the photo); and Nate Hawthorne, a literate cop with severe allergies (on left in the photo). The show's creator, Jay Tarses, makes occasional appearances as Molly's garbage man, Nick. After the second season, the show moved from NBC to Lifetime.moreless
