Major Spoilers Question Of The Day: Things Nobody Else Has Ever Heard Of Edition


Having grown up in the 1970s, I often find that my reference points and television memories are older than many of my colleagues here at Major Spoilers.  Older than Zach, with fewer friends and distractions than Stephen and a better memory than that Rob kid, I often find myself referring to things that nobody else remembers, to the point where I’m sometimes accused of making up pop culture out of whole cloth.  Sure, a lot of people remember that Captain Marvel/SHAZAM had a Saturday morning TV show back in the day, and fewer remember the companion show featuring The Mighty Isis.  But even my wife doesn’t recall ‘Ark II’, a live-action Filmation show set after the apocalypse with a roving storehouse of scientific knowledge, a talkin’ monkey and a main character that main brain insists on thinking of as Grizzly Addams with a jetpack (admittedly a great concept.)  This, in turn, begs today’s query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) should act as a cautionary tale that the sharp memory is a mixed blessing, at best, but it’s great for winning bar bets, asking: What is your favorite bit of pop culture that nobody else seems to remember?
