  • Good Saturday morning variety from the 70's!

    This was not, as the previous poster put, an "animated version", but a sketch comedy show featuring the comedic talents as well as the basketball skills of that era's Globetrotters. As I recall, some of them were pretty good comedians without the ball. In particular, Meadowlark Lemon, Tex Harrison, Curley Neal, and Geese Ausbie showed some decent acting prowess while the others (Theodis, Bobby Joe, John Smith, and Marques Haynes), well, they were good with a basketball! Avery Schreiber was good as well. Rodney Allen Rippy was just a kid who added little more than a cute face.moreless
  • An animated version of the Harlem Globetrotters.

    A pretty good animated show on all counts. I can take it or leave it. This is the type of show that everyone really needs to just watch for themselves to decide. Have you ever been watching a show and have somebody ask you a question that made you wonder if you were watching the same program? Well, this is one of those shows for me. It's like I'm thinking about it differently than other people. Then you have the people that say "It's not funny if you have to explain it." While that is true sometimes, it is also true that sometimes the viewer just "doesn't get it." I hate shows that have to "dumb things down" because of how some people perceive it.moreless
