Remember that one day when you could wake up without an alarm? When you would get your favorite bowl of cereal and sit between the hours of 8 and 12? This is a blog dedicated to the greatest time of our childhood: Saturday mornings. The television programs you watched, the memories attached to them, and maybe introducing you to something you didn't realize existed. Updated every weekend.
was an animated/live-action/puppet hybrid created by Paul Fusco, the man
behind the ALF
puppet and franchise. The series focused on a group of alien cats
(basically cats with antennae) who were created on the planet Trygliceride-7 to
solve all the problems of Earth; fighting for “truth, justice and a
better-quality cat food without a fishy aftertaste” (a play on Superman’s motto). They
took refuge in an underground lair so secret, not even the cats themselves knew
where they were.
D.O.R.C. addressing Captain Catgut.
Their leader was D.O.R.C. (the
Disembodied Omnipotent Ruler of Cats, performed in liv-action by Charles Nelson
Reilly), a former game show host with a low tolerance for cats due to his
inability to have a pet as a young head (because he needed to be able to carry
them in his mouth). He relayed missions directly to the less-than-intelligent
Captain Catgut (Fusco), who then selected the agents to carry out their
mission.Despite a large
assortment of Spacecats to choose from (seriously—he usually flipped through
film slides of several), Catgut generally chose the same three. The team leader
was always Thomas “Tom” Spacecat (Rob Paulsen), a weapons expert with excellent
spelling ability. Under him was disguise expert Scratch (Townsend Coleman), so
named because of a musical family of space fleas constantly making him itchy,
and Sniff (Pat Fraley), whose keen sense of smell was only rivaled by his
numerous allergies. It would be up to the Spacecats to foil the villains, save
the day, and try to discreetly blend in with Earth cats (well, two out of three
Captain Catgut's intro credit.
Spacecats debuted on NBC on September 14, 1991. The series was
written by Fusco with ALFwriters Howard Bendetson and David Silverman, animated ALFwriterTerrie Collins,
ALF Taleswriter Judy
Rothman, Rogena Schuyler,
Rowby Goren (who served
as story editor), George Atkins and
with music by Shuki Levy, orchestrated by Udi Harpaz.
Each episode followed a similar structure: after the intro and theme by ALFveterans
Leslie Ann Podkin and Alf Clausen, the narrator
(Robert Ridgley) would introduce the Spacecats to the audience as the camera
went from space down into their lair via the garbage can entrance. The lair and
Captain Catgut would be represented by puppets on a set, typically in stock
footage showing the cats milling about looking busy-ish. D.O.R.C. would then
appear on the to fill Catgut in on the mission with some snide barbs before
departing with a comedic message appearing on his screen, such as “Deposit $850”
or “Want to lose weight? Ask me how!”. The episode would then switch to
traditional animation by AKOM Productions
as Catgut would scroll through slides of agents before settling on our three
protagonists, with the narrator going over their qualities (usually a mix of
serious and comedic). After the trio bumbled their way through the assignment,
they would end the episode by addressing the audience with words of
not-quite-wisdom. A running gag also had them announcing themselves with a
poorly-harmonized vocal fanfare. This would be Marvel Productions’
second—and arguably more successful—attempt at an animation/puppet hybrid
series after the failed Little
The crack(ed) team of Tom, Sniff and Scratch.
for all involved, the series came about right when NBC was considering a move
away from animation to produce more live-action teen-oriented fare in an
attempt to duplicate the success of Saved
by the Bell; which would take the form of TNBC the next season. As a
result, Spacecats was among the many animated shows cancelled by the network
after its sole season. To date, no home releases or merchandise have been
released outside of the partial adaptation of “Diamonds are Fur-Ever” featured
in the special NBC Saturday Morning Comicsfrom
Harvey Comics, which
previewed NBC’s 1991 Saturday morning line-up. However, 10 episodes have been uploaded
online in various places, with two only available in Persian dubs.

Bros. was banking heavily on Looney Tunes: Back
in Actionbeing a success. So much so, they imagined it as the
springboard into which they could revitalize the Looney Tunes franchise
and re-introduce theatrical shorts. Unfortunately, those plans all fell apart
when the movie underperformed at the box office. Warner Bros. immediately
cancelled their planned slate of Looney Tunes shorts, but kept production
going on the 30 Tom and Jerry ones they commissioned for the next two
years before pulling the plug. While “The Karate Guard” did
actually manage to make it to theaters as intended, Warner Bros. decided the
best place for the rest was on television. A few of the shorts aired on Cartoon Network before being packaged
together to air on Kids’ WB
as Tom and Jerry Tales.
Spike and Butch pick on Tom and Jerry at the beach.
The serieswas a return to
form for the Tom and Jerry franchise. Each episode featured three shorts with
some kind of connecting theme and had Tom (Don Brown, with co-creator William Hanna’s archived yell
used a few times) and Jerry (Sam Vincent) engaged in their slapstick-laden
rivalry (although they would occasionally team-up against a common foe). A
great number of characters from the franchise were revived for the shorts,
including Tom’s primary nemesis Spike (Michael Donovan) and his son, Tyke;
Butch (Colin Murdock), an alley cat who was sometimes Tom’s friend and other
times his rival for Jerry; Tom’s equally-silent love interest Toodles Galore;
Tom’s owner Mrs. Two-Shoes (a modified version of the racially-charged
Mammy Two Shoes, voiced by Nicole
Oliver); young mouse Nibbles (Reece
Thompson & Chantal
Strand); and frequent appearances by Droopy Dog (Brown & Donovan). Character
designs were handled by Dan
Haskett, Frank Molieri, and
Tony Cervone, and while they
adhered to the most up-to-date models of the characters, occasionally they
would slip back into earlier designs in various episodes.Despite having
credited voice actors, Tom and Jerry didn’t speak like in the disastrousTom and Jerry: The Movie.
They only spoke in the short “Kitty
Hawked” as it relied on them relaying a story to an audience on and through the
Taking the battle to cyberspace.
Tom and Jerry Tales debuted
on The CW as part of the Kids’ WB programming
block on September 23, 2006; although it did air in markets outside of the
United States earlier in the year. It would be the first Tom and Jerry show
produced by Warner Bros. since their acquisition of the MGM properties through the merger of Turner Entertainment
and Time Warner. The series was
very well-received due to its harkening back to the franchise’s earlier days.
The writing and animation by Yearim
Productions Co., Ltd, Lotto
Animation, Toon City Animation,
Inc. and Rough Draft Studios
were praised. A second season was ordered and brought the total number of
episodes to 26 for the course of the series; with 78 shorts total (some of which
served as updates or contained similarities to earlier entries of the franchise).
Any chance of a third season was
likely killed by the fact that Kids’ WB was on the way out when the second
season was due to finish airing. Reruns of the series survived the block’s
transition to The CW4Kids, remaining
on the network until September of 2008. The series would return in reruns on
Cartoon Network in 2011 where the series was able to be broadcast in the
widescreen aspect ratio it was produced in due to the changing television

Baggy Pants and the Nitwits
was the blend of two generations of comedy coming together in a single package.
The titular Baggy Pants was an anthropomorphic cat heavily influenced by Charlie Chaplin’s most well-known
character, The Tramp
(early concept art even had him named “The Little Hobo”). Like his inspiration,
Baggy Pants was a good-natured and dapper vagrant that wore an ill-fitting
suit, carried a cane, and possessed a small mustache. His primary adversary was
an anthropomorphic pig that circumstances either put him at odds with or whom
Baggy Pants would work for in some capacity. Harkening back to The Tramp’s
silent film origins, Baggy Pants’ adventures were all done in pantomime
had experience with due to their Pink
Panther character) with an accompanying old-timey score.
Baggy Pants spying something interesting in the trash.
The Nitwits portion of the
show reunited the characters of Gladys Ormphby (Ruth Buzzi) and Tyrone Horneigh
(Arte Johnson) from Rowan
and Martin’s Laugh-In. Tyrone was a lecherous old man who would always try to woo spinster
Gladys in a number of inappropriate ways; typically, as she sat on a park bench.
Gladys, for all her protesting, sometimes seemed to be into
all the attention Tyrone gave her (in fact, they almost ended up married), but
he would ultimately do something to prompt her to knock him out with her purse.
Naturally, for the animated version developed by Johnson, that aspect of the
routine was eliminated; instead, Gladys and Tyrone were a married couple who
fought crime together with Tyrone constantly lavishing praise on Gladys and
Gladys constantly bashing Tyrone for his incompetence. Tyrone was a retired
superhero with the handle Agony Nine that was goaded back into part-time
selective action by the populace to battle a host of absurd super villains and
criminals. Tyrone’s power of flight came from his semi-sentient dog-like cane
named Elmo, which also served as a two-way radio to communicate with Gladys
back in their base above the police station (where a hole in the floor
sometimes provided them leads on some crimes). Despite being the superhero of
the story, Tyrone’s bumbling usually meant that the day was saved by the threat
of Gladys’ purse. Originally, The Nitwits was going to be its own show
under the title Tyrone until it was decided to combine it with Baggy
Gladys looking on after Tyrone crash-lands into their base. Again.
Baggy Pants' porcine nemesis disrupts the bench the titular heroes sit on.
Despite the show reportedly doing
well in the ratings and being well-recieved, it ended after a single season of
13 episodes. Animator John
Celestri stated in Think
Pink: The Story of DePatie-Frelengby Mark Arnoldthat despite Baggy
Pants being a parody, it was far too close to The Tramp and the Chaplin estate
got litigious. And because of the way they constructed the show, there was no
easy way to repackage The Nitwits segments without Baggy Pants,and bringing back the Tyrone concept wasn’t explored. The series
remained on the network until October of 1978 when it was finally removed from
the schedule. To date, no part of the show has been released to home video or
streaming, although some bootleg copies exist online.

might be more familiar with the 2013 film version starring Ben Stiller, The
Secret Life of Walter Mittywas originally a short story written by James Thurber. First
published in The New Yorkeron
March 18, 1939, the story dealt with the mild-mannered titular character living
out heroic fantasies in his head inspired by some mundane aspect of his life in
the moment. Those adventures saw him as the pilot of a U.S. Navy flying boat in a storm, a surgeon
performing a rare surgery, a deadly assassin testifying in court, a Royal Air Force pilot volunteering for a
secret suicide mission, and finally facing down a firing squad. The story has
been adapted countless times on stage and screen.
The live-action Waldo, Tyrone and Felicia.
Filmation, finally “getting
over [their] aversion to satire” as co-founder Lou Scheimer would put it in his
the Filmation Generation, decided to take inspiration from the story
for their next project. The Secret Lives of Waldo Kitty followed a shy
and timid cat named Waldo (Howard Morris) who often imagined himself in heroic
roles when dealing with the menacing English bulldog, Tyrone (Allan Melvin), which would help him come up with a real solution.
These fantasies would alternate between five pop culture parodies: Batman, Tarzan,
Lone Ranger, Robin Hood
and Star Trek(four of which were
properties Filmation had or would come to work on). Always present and in need
of rescue was Waldo’s girlfriend, Felicia (Jane Webb). Occasionally, Tyrone
would be joined by three other dogs to comprise his gang, while Waldo would
have either a sparrow or rabbit as a sidekick. What made the show unique was
that while the fantasy sequences were traditionally animated, the real-life
Waldo and his companions were portrayed by real-life animals in wraparound
segments produced by Filmart with animals from Frank Inn, Inc.
The alter-egos of Waldo Kitty.
Secret Lives of Waldo Kitty debuted on NBC
on September 6, 1975. The series was written by Lorna Cook, Bill Danch and Jim Ryan, with music by Ray Ellis (as Yvette Blas) and Norm Prescott (as Jeff Michael)
and additional music and sound effects by Horta-Mahana Corp.
The theme was written by Jackie
Mills and Joyce
Taylor and performed in-character by Morris. However, it was a hassle to
even get the show made. Filmation’s first headache came with the conception of
the show. Layout artist Lorna Smith came up with the concept, fought for it to even
be considered for production by the studio, and then for her credit on the
series when her role in the equation was seemingly forgotten. NBC had reduced
their episode order from 16 to 13, which made the show very unattractive to
certain markets for airing. Then, Filmation learned why the adage “never work with
children or animals” was coined with the tremendous difficulty they had in
wrangling their dog actor for filming, as he was always chasing after the cat
actors on set. Finally, Thurber’s widow Helen
Goldwyn Productions filed suit against Filmation for infringing on her
husband’s idea and unfair competition. The
series ultimately proved different enough for the suit to go nowhere, but NBC
cancelled it anyway and didn’t even give it a second season of reruns.
One of the VHS covers depicting Waldo rescuing Felicia from Tyrone and his thugs.
would later include an edited version of the show in a syndication package with
Goolies. To remove all comparisons to Walter Mitty, they got rid
of the live-action segments and changed the show’s name to The New
Adventures of Waldo Kitty. Only three episodes made it to home video between
American Video’s 1989 VHS release
and various international
