Wild Cards

Hey kids (of all ages), it’s Saturday Morning Cartoon time again!

Before we got sidetracked with all the holiday festivities, I’d been using the Saturday slot to look back at the many animated incarnations of DC Comics’ JUSTICE LEAGUE characters on TV, starting with the Filmation ‘toons of the 1960s, progressing to Hanna-Barbera’s SUPER FRIENDS of the ’70s and ’80s. That show went through multiple formats and titles, as we’ve covered here on the channel.

This final version was the SUPER POWERS TEAM: GALACTIC GUARDIANS. It actually boasted some better writing and animation than we’d become accustomed-to from the series. I usually feature the first episode of each season, but this time I skipped-ahead to get us to the one and only appearance of the Joker in any of the Super Friends programs. It also introduces the Royal Flush Gang in their first animated appearance from October 1985. More from the OldHorseman.




Betty White: High Priestess

Did Betty White really die on New Year’s Eve — 17 days before her 100th birthday?

Tarot by Janine says that was a convenient story. In point of fact, says Janine, White was a high priestess of Hollyweird’s death cult, a Black Hat witch with a very dark and sinister history.

White, Janine says, cut a deal that allowed her to escape into exile in return for spilling the beans on the death cult. Where is she now? Not known, but likely still alive and in hiding, perhaps in Eastern Europe.

Also of note: Janine believes the persistent rumors suggesting that Betty White was a sister of Barbara Bush, the wife of former President George H.W. Bush. Barbara Bush died in 2018 at the age of 92.




Betty White vamps about her age, attributing her longevity to eating the blood of virgins. More from Bluewater.

 




 

Monkees’ Christmas Show

Hey kids (of all ages), it’s Saturday Morning Cartoon time again! Christmas-style, even!

Okay… The MONKEES aren’t technically a cartoon, but they’re about as close as live action can be, and they were rerun in the network Saturday Morning block way back when. And since we just lost Michael Nesmith, I thought we’d slip them in as a Christmas entry.

Y’see children, back in the ’60s, the most successful band of all time, the BEATLES, exploded onto popular culture, dominating the music charts, filling stadiums at concerts, and making some weird movies… So naturally, TV producers got the idea of creating a knock-off group to be featured in a sitcom. Hired four actors to play the band members on screen, planned to have them ape performances over music recorded by professional musicians. But the boys actually gelled as a group, had substantially more talent than expected, and released a bunch of hit songs in the real world. Many of which are still popular today.

The sitcom… If you can call it that… Was a glorious mess. Full of 4th Wall breaking utter nonsense and plain goofing-off. This particular episode features none other than Butch Patrick (Eddie from the MUNSTERS) as a joyless rich kid the band has to get into the holiday spirit.

Instead of their usual pop-rock video segments, the episode finishes with an impressive, uncut performance of a very old, archaic Spanish carol “Ríu Chíu”. Then the whole production crew comes onscreen in lieu of the usual closing credit screens.

Now somebody check on CIRCUS BOY… He’s the only Monkee we’ve got left!!! From 1967. More from the OldHorseman.

Adventures Of Santa Claus

Hey kids (of all ages), it’s Saturday Morning Cartoon time again! Christmas-style, even!

Last week, we covered Rankin/Bass’ origin story for the Big Guy with Santa Claus is Comin’ To Town from 1970. Later Rankin/Bass specials seemed to stay in continuity with that version. But this time, they went with something quite different.

L. Frank Baum, best known known for creating the Wonderful Wizard Of Oz and related stories, included Santa in his extended fantasy world-building. He put the rising Claus in a faerie forest that was more Narnia or Middle Earth than we were used to seeing for our jolly sleigh jockey.

Though the two Animagic Santa origin specials were made 15 years apart, the first one was repeated every year and was heart-canon for kids. This contradictory backstory went over like a lead balloon. Even though it does have more satisfying (albeit mostly implied) badassery on the part of Santa’s pagan allies.

This 1985 telefilm was the final Animagic stop-action production.  The full title is The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus. Rankin/Bass would hang on a while longer with flat animation, including the Thundercats and Silverhawks of all things. More from the OldHorseman.




 

Santa Claus Is Comin’ To Town

Hey kids (of all ages), it’s Saturday Morning Cartoon time again!
Christmas-style, even!

I’m a little torn by this one… On the one hand, a pimptastically-dressed, strapping young man struts into town and starts bribing children to sit on his lap and kiss him? Seems like he’d fit right in with Brandon and the other pedos. Except that his interaction with minors is always in public, and he sparks-up a romance with the very first full-grown, age-appropriate woman he meets. (Rankin/Bass and their curvy redheads… See MAD MONSTER PARTY from a few weeks ago.)

On the other hand, Kris Kringle’s story is all about non-compliance with arbitrary authority. That’s a lesson a lot of Americans need to revisit these days. Better to be declared an outlaw and a rebel than to let pathetic Little Tin Gods run your life!

This one tends to get butchered quite a bit on TV. Not for the cringe of children exchanging kisses with strange adults for toys… Mostly so they can squeeze-in a few more commercials, avoid traumatizing wee snowflakes with the burning toy pile, and minimize the rebel message.

Note the quick Rudolph cameo. Unlike Santa, the elves, and the eight original reindeer, who were all public domain, Rudy was the property of Robert L. May, who created the character for Montgomery Ward in 1939, so they had to brush him off as “another story”, though the producers had licensed him before, and would do so again.

SANTA CLAUS IS COMIN’ TO TOWN came in 1970, when Rankin/Bass Animagic was at it’s peak… They’d do a rather different origin story for Santa 15 years later as the form’s swan song. More from the OldHorseman.
