Family Affair (1966) - TV Shows
This was one the several shows where a hair change was better--Cissy\'s hairdos improved..I liked her more older look...(I was on the Cosby Show board and they made the very good usual point of a hairstyle point not changing...) This show rocked back and forth from being a comedy and a drama, but then so did all of the pre-70s shows by a number of studios, including Screen Gems, and the studio and that made this, and My 3 Sons, and the forgotten To Rome with Love, (aka MTS with girls!), the independent Don Fedderson Productions, which, BY THE WAY, did the original versions of two of the most iconic music shows of the era! (Liberace and Lawrence Welk. Mr.Fedderson,btw, was the broadcaster of the station that put Liberace on TV..source:THE WORSE TV SHOWS EVER, 1980, Bart Andrews).(update:included autholr's name after looking it up in Amazon) -- Submitted By: (PokeyJHorse) on August 31, 2015, 8:52 pm

Get-Along Gang, The - TV Shows
Mark Evanier was the writer you mentioned, Travoltron. He's apretty neat historian that you probaly know of. His News from Me blog has been going on forever (Get it? M(ark) E(vanier)=Me.) And Robert, agreed with your comment. even Worse that many animation greats (animators Ken harris, Virgil Ross voices June Foray, Don Messick as for Smurfs, and others just to mention) worked on this.. -- Submitted By: (PokeyJHorse) on August 25, 2015, 9:53 am

Brady Bunch, The - TV Shows
I won't make any Cousin Oliver/Scrappy Doo comparisions like others may as I'm not even a Scooby fan so it'd be a moot point Scooby with or without Scrappy (they're the same crap to me..) but Brady IS a show I do enjoy so I WILL say Cousin Oliver ... But one of the most underrated of the family members themselves (the original 9) is MARCIA Brady. Yes..she is MUCH MALIGNED..Marcia, Marcia, marcia. Attacked on Internet Movie Database just for having human flaws, attacked as too sexy, she is the neato-est. Jan (all due respect, Eve Plumb) was just whiny, whiny. -- Submitted By: (PokeyJHorse) on August 25, 2015, 12:55 am

Gumby - TV Shows
Gumby (and I am the one that submitted this) boned in 1984-88 when Clokey made those new episodes, re-scored due to payment issues over the stock cues (even though for about ANOTHER DECADE or so they were still available, scale price and stuff notwithstanding). In addition to this: 1) music replaced not even by similiar music or such used on the new episodes but replaced by baby like synth music 2) HORRIBLE, slicked up designs for Pokey (my namesake.) and redseign of Gumby and Goo, unneccesary character additions (and the 1992 movie, released a few years later, only made this worse) Some may say that the 1967 addition of the "nope" Nopey a "Cousin Oliver" type character. Others may say it for Professor Kapp, Prickle dinosaur (whose appearance in the earlier 80s merchandising, predating the abovementioned soundtrack redo, MUST Have reflected the new dinosaur craze!) and little blue Goo, that these wrecked the series way back in 1966. I actually like these... Gumby's eyes changing in 1957 to the flat ones was the big change, though Gumby and Pokey had some recasting (Art Clokey thru 1957, then 1962-68 Dal McKennon), and Gumby had LOTS of Same Character, Different actor case (from the old Scottish Site, Jump the Shark's vernacular).-McKennon was one who played Gumby in 1962-66 then Norma MacMillan, whose daughter is ALLISON ARNGRIN, b----ch Nellie Olsen from Little House...so not just Nellie but her actress's mom did something mean, Norma MacMillan in this case, in replacing someone as Gumby (Just joking about Ms.MacMillian being "mean). For some reason, the second version in 1960-62 didn't have the villainous Blockheads (aptly named and with right head shapes with G on one "block"-head, and J on the other, neither talking) but in 1967 they returned.. Anyway, I widely preferred the original to the later ones...made in 1987-92.. (the following from the old "Scottish Site" with my comments added) (quote) Remember when Gumby's voice was "girlishly high"...(of the remake) when Gumby was a "teen"..in a squeaky-clean format (unqote here) Gumby as a "teen" started in 1961 to take hold ("Hot rod Granny", right down to the "groovy" stock music which was unqiue to this episode), and the format always applied....so it's kind of redundant.. (quote) Remember those early episodes? (unquote here) Absoulely I do..and I did put information like the music and some other things in the old Jump the shark entry for this.. -- Submitted By: (PokeyJHorse) on August 16, 2015, 2:41 pm

Carly Rae Jepsen - Music Groups
I dunno.... it made enough of an impression on ME at the time that you guys wrote this (shanequia, you lurking here :D)) for me a whole damn year later to download it on Amazon.com (that song had unbelieveable legs. Just like Carle Rae herself. March 2012 in US to July 2013. This being a song that gained the "earworm" name. Now Meghan Trainor is the new CRJ but with an even better song..both made number one for nine weeks (average in Meghan T.'s case.) been downloading songs off Amazon like crazy. I have Trainor's Lorde's, etc. even the rare short version of Aerosmith's 1973 single of Dream on. -- Submitted By: (PokeyJHorse) on August 16, 2015, 2:05 pm

What's New, Scooby Doo? - TV Shows
Not really into Scooby-Doo, (outside season 1, maybe..) but I loved late 50s-1960s Hanna-Barbera, and like anyone else's shows, theatrical short cartoons, or movies, there were recoginzable, and, yes, BELOVED, trademarks, including soundtrack. One of the most recognisable and distinctive things about Hanna-Barbera, just like MGM, WB (their current parent!), Disney, etc. is the underscore background music, regardless who did it, but by the early 1980s it was totally shot (their original composers alone had largely included since 1961 when they went-all original had been Hoyt Curtin, and when SD premiered in Sept.1969, Ted Nichols and Marty Paitch (musical director for everyone from Toto to Babs Streisand!!!!!) did music,too.. But when the 1980s, and 90s in particular came by, the background music had been shot to hell largely. By the time the 1994 Arabian Knights Scooby (don't ask!) came by, LOONEY TUNES style music, and the big noisy "Animanaics/Tiny Toon Adventures" type, had came by, then that and the metal rock music occured here, as some have said (I personally myself have not watched these..see, the first five words of this comment...) then the sound effects had been changed (I DID hear enough of TAHT few times that I saw this..) And popular alternative band Simple Plan?????? -- Submitted By: (PokeyJHorse) on August 11, 2015, 11:50 pm

My Three Sons - TV Shows
"Uncle CHarley wiping wrong end of Dodie" Uncle Charley and the in-laws should, as additions and replacements, be cited as shark jumpers, or fish boning categories...though it only started boning in late 60s right before Dodie. (PS I REALLY laugh at how folks attack Scrappy-Doo on Scooby when the whole original foursome were the least inspiried Hanna-Barbera chaarcters, coincidentally, in 1969, since that's when Dodie came. Though as My Three Sons was wworth watching, that may be a reason all the same to resent Dodie for killing it..Scooby, which came on at the same time as did Dodie, was crap from the start, so addiung Scrappy as a "shark jumoer" doesn't matter. -- Submitted By: (PokeyJHorse) on July 19, 2015, 10:25 pm

Captain Planet and the Planeteers - TV Shows
Were Michael Moore or Susan Sarandon writers on the show LOL? and NAME voices?? The show seemed very anti-authority. Regarding Chubby Rain's comment, Migthy orbots was only good in giving Sherry Alberoni (Alexandra the beeyotch on Josie) and Julie Bennett (Cindy bear in Yogi Bear, various such as Sagebrush Sally on Quick Draw,etc.) from older Hanna-Barbera new voice work. Finally, mentioning corporate business would be slander and even worse (as jconifer7 says, no sponsors if such happened.) -- Submitted By: (PokeyJHorse) on July 10, 2015, 3:15 am

Lawrence Welk Show, The - TV Shows
I've always loved this..The Lennon Sisters (or..as Lawrence would call them:"The Luffly Lennons"), and the others........if you wanted your music easy going, oft-going back to the early 1920s (speaking of which, shouldn't good ol' Mitch Miller's 1961 "Sing Along With mitch" have ITS own entry?), virtually none of the innuendo side to C.Porter, Benny Goodman, etc., and well dressed "luffly luffly ladides" and gentlemanyl gentleman, who made Mary Poppins and Bert the Chimney Sweep seem groovy....well, Lawrence Welk (my man) was it. Even I though I couldn't be exactly his target audience, I've enjoyed his stuff...how much, oh...so much that I have three LPs and several spin offs from his star gals, the Lennon Sisters..(sigh...Janet and Peggy..my crushes...like Kathy Garver in Family Affair as Cissy, per Lawrence's requests, all those girls looked older..but I've always loved the Lennons, and the polkas..).. Lawrence certainly knew HOW to attract an audience.Even fired his first Champagne lady Alice Lon for showiung Cheesecake.... That even included as he became (in 1971) yet the latest casuality of advertiser demographic preferences, though with younger skewing counterparts like (just to use his own network ABC) "The Brady Bunch" and "Partridge Family" it was obvious that Welk could have just as well been on there..the bradys, partrdiges..with Welk..? Totally Concievable..he even reigned later with a new extension in the seventies in syndication with many younger groups (Simenski Sisters being amoing them.) -- Submitted By: (PokeyJHorse) on June 2, 2015, 12:41 am
