I don't know why, but I don't remember Saucer or Space Nuts very clearly. I remember seeing them both, but only very intermittently. Wonderbug and Electra Woman were on all the time in my area.

The Lost Saucer and Land of the Lost had relatively high budgets compared to the usual Krofft schlock.

The Sleestak were majorly creepy, stiff costumes notwithstanding.

This could be a very sad commentary on your childhood. I hope you have some other (*much better*) childhood memories . . . :D

I remember all this vividly - right after Fat Albert and does anyone remember the Hudson Brothers Razzle Dazzle Show? And OMG....the Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Hour. I'm fairly convinced that Chuck Jones is, in fact, God.

Saturday mornings and endless bowls of Count Chocula, Freakies and Quisp. Good times.

Incidentally (speaking of Match Game), I have three famous people in my family - one a porn star, one a famous model and thirdly (and best) a game show host from the 70s - Bob MotherF'n Eubanks. That's right, baby. "Where's the strangest place you've ever made whoopie?"

Those were good times. I think I'll break out my Bugs DVD's this weekend and watch 'em. (these are especially good because it has the politically incorrect un-edited versions where daffy and elmer are routinely shot with a shot-gun, etc).

Are serious about the Bob Eubanks?! That's awesome! 8O

I did some searching and the Jim Neighbors/Ruth Buzzy combo was from The Lost Saucer. Far Out Space Nuts had Bob Denver and Chuck McCann.
Then there was "Dusty's Trail." Starring Bob Denver and Forrest Tucker (the sargeant from F-Troop). Gilligan goes West.

Which porn star?
I went to college with Marilyn Chambers cousin. I don't recall her real name... everyone just called her "Lusty Chambers."

Meanwhile, how have missed any mention of H.R. Puffinstuff?

Michigander.....serious as a heart attack.

And Del, I'll save that story for another day. It's got more twists and turns than a snake's wang.

Here's to politically incorrect cartoons. I miss the original voice of the mammie on Tom and Jerry. They've dubbed in a nice soothing black female voice. When she yells "Thoooooomaaaaas!" it's just not the same. When did the world become so afraid of itself and garner the feeling that everything is offensive? Sometimes, we just need to be offended.

....which brings us right back to Charles Nelson Reilly.

Ahhh, the Hudson Brothers......always ended with their producer (a little kid) coming out and offering some bizarre food at which the three of them would say, "No thanks,,,(snap-clap thing with the hands)...we're tryin' to cut down"

How about Lance Link?

Our family has a connection to Brooke Shields, but I think there's an in-law link in there somewhere.

Frickin yeah, man. I remember the sped-up schtick with the van pulling up during either the opening and ending.

And Bob Eubanks?!

Okay, I take back all that stuff I said about you being just another lame, white, pipe-smoking, med student.

Were you like hiding under our couch, watching our TV when I was growing up, or something?

Lancelot Link, Secret Chimp !!! YAY !!!! Mata Hairy. Those were the days.

And apparently the two-channel limitation of the television aerial in my formative years is manifesting - some of these shows just ain't ringin' the bells...
