Thanks to a recent Top Five episode, I’ve spent the conscious portion of my Saturday morning wanting to watch ‘Super Friends.’  And not Marvin eps, either (Sorry, Stephen) but the madness that was ‘Challenge of the Super Friends!”  For one thing, it’s the first time I ever really liked Green Lantern.  For another, the Legion of Doom was excellently evil, given the standards of the day.  The thing about Saturday mornings even now is that it’s one of the few times that I can take my time on everything I need to do, and that relaxed pace would be much improved by 22 minutes of Hong Kong Phooey, leading to today’s produced-by-Lou-Scheimer-and-Norm-Prescott query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) realizes that those in the streaming era are looking at me weird, but just go with it, asking: What program from ANY era do you most wish you could still watch new installments of on Saturday mornings?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.


  1. If Hasbro hadn’t bought the rights to Power Rangers from Saban and renewed my hope that we might once again get some good stories (and maybe actors with even a shred of acting ability unlike a certain Red Ranger from a few years ago), I would have said Disney era Power Rangers. There were some solid entries during Disney’s run with the franchise.

    But I think I’m going to have to go with Jackie Chan Adventures. No matter how goofy the show got at times, I still found it an enjoyable series.

    • I second Jackie Chan Adventures. That show was never afraid to change, and I’d love to see how it would continue to mutate into something equally great.

  2. Looney Tunes / Merry Melodies directed by Clampett, Jones or McKimson and music composed by Carl Stalling.
    Also, School House Rock.
