The good thing about '70s kids' shows is that playing outside was a better option.

I also curse subby for the earworm.

I never watched this crap. Never even heard of this until now.

Damn, this is dredging up something from deep inside my brain. I can't say that I have any clear memories of this, but I know I've seen it before.

'72-77 according to Wiki, I was born in '73. Looks like it might have been paired with Romper room and/or Captain Kangaroo, which I definitely remember.

Huh, the Hippo's name is Henrietta. There's a Hallile Hippo on Doc McStuffins, a Disney cartoon my girls are addicted to. Wonder if that's intentional.

Emmy Jo had a nice set of gams.

I grew up with that show.

I have no skills, sorry, but clearly "GiggleSnort Hotel" was the best!

- it was weird to watch that after all these years.

70s kids programming was created on acid.

That's the only explanation I can come up with.

I came of age during the 30 Minute Animated Toy Commerical era. I still have a box of He-Man and Transformers somewhere in my parents' basement.

This was my Saturday Morning viewing. it always made my shorts fit funny. Then onto Speed Racer, Spider-Man and The Mighty Thor.

I always heard, "Come and ride with you."
Makes just as much sense.

Yep. For a few years there, Owsley Stanley and Ken Kesey were in charge of all children's programming in the US.

/anyone remember The Hilarious House Of Frightenstein? Serious cheap du cheapo, and every episode was the same


Yup, made at a local-market level studio in Hamilton, Ontario. They filmed the entire series at once, one segment at a time, then assembled the episodes out of those bits. That is, they'd spend two months filming all of the intro segments for the entire series, and then all of the pet segments, and then all of the cooking-with-witch segments, etc, etc. It simplified the costume changes, since one dude played 90% of the roles (the only roles he didn't play were the fat green guy, the mosquito and Vincent Price). Thanks, Wikipedia.

I caught a rerun a few years ago. I thought the narrator did a convincing Vincent Price impression. Then I read the closing credits. Holy crap, that actually was Vincent Price!

I remember that show, and I remember being strangely attracted to the kangaroo and cockatoo.. Looking back now I realize that could have turned into an unhealthy furry fetish, instead of a flexible women fetish .

Can't tell if that thing is a pig or a hippo

I still remember the episode where the hippo got stuck in the well because she ate too many twinkies.

Weird was my favorite character on that show, followed closely by Dirty Dragon and Blob. Man, we had great shows back then.

If it makes you feel better, the woman who played Whazzat Kangaroo was pretty hot in real life.

Suddenly it's all coming back to me. This must have been buried deep in my brain.

Not sure when this show originally aired but I watched a lot of it when I was a kid. Not so sure why everyone is so disgusted by it, it is a kids show. Have you seen kids shows? They are all weird. It was cool to watch this again, it pulled up some old stuff from my brain I didn't know was there!
 
2012-11-28 01:19:50 PM
I remember this show.

Others that people may have mentioned from this time period:

Great Space Coaster
Magic Garden

Starblazers was also neat. About the only Anime that I ever liked. Then again I was a little kid so it could really suck and I didn't know it.

born in 1970:

Electric company, sesame street and even villa alegre (parents thought i would end up bilingual lol). That was the educational, the fun stuff was Star Blazers, Speed Racer, Thundaarr the Barbarian, Herculoids and Space Ghost for cartoons; 6-million dollar man, moonbase alpha, star trek (reruns more popular than the original series iirc), dukes of hazzard, and battlestar galactica for live-action. I know not of what followed or came before.

I went to elementary school with their daughter Joanna from kindergarten through 6th grade. She was really cute and kinda awesome. Way out of my league, though. She looks like her mom. I always found her parents' show unwatchable, though.

Those stills look like they could have come from an SCTV skit starring Eugene Levy & Catherine O'Hara.

Speaking of which, now seems like a good time to visit "Mrs. Falbo's Tiny Town"

I remember this show, it's called The New Zoo Review (or was when I saw it). I distinctly remember watching it.

I also remember watching the Great Space Coaster, Starbblazers, He-Man....damn I'm old.

I've shown old clips from Sesame Street to my wife (who never watched it growing up), she's says it explains a lot about my sense of humour and general insanity.

Things didn't get rolling until after the third commercial break. Then it was all about the cross-species polyamory

Born 1965:

Romper Room (in b/w)

Remember first season of Sesame Street where Oscar was ORANGE.
Electric Company (1 2 3, 4 5, 6 7 8 9 10, 11 12, doo-doo doo-doo-doo, doot-doo doo-doot doo-doo, doo-doo-doo-doo)
Hated Zoom because the kids' NY/NJ accent put me off -- I thought they had Downs.
