This series is based on the adventures of Tarzan who seeks to champion the less fortunate, to right wrongs and to protect both the animals in his jungle as well as the human visitors. (30 mins.)
“ Decent adaptation of the classic jungle hero. Lots of lost civilizations and the like. Filmation used rotoscoping (animation over live footage) to give a bit more motion to the character. ” - janzeteachesit

The greatest of the DC Comics superheroes work together to uphold the good with the help of some young proteges. (60 mins.)
“ The first of the Super Friends shows, it suffered from the heavier standards imposed after the 60s, so no one could ever grab one of the villains (with their own hands) and there weren't many real villains (certainly not from the comics), but it had some creative stories. Some of the character names were real groaners (Dr. Shaman, with his Shaman U device). ” - janzeteachesit
 
15.
Land of the Lost (1974 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.2/10 X  
A family is thrown back in time and must survive in a dinosaur dominated land. (30 mins.)
“ Probably the most popular of the Krofft Shows, featuring a lost world of dinosaurs (in bad stop motion and puppetry), strange humanoids (the Pakunis), and Sleestaks. Very imaginative but held back by budget and technology. Many of the Sleestaks were actually basketball players from UCLA and USC. ” - janzeteachesit
 
16.

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.5/10 X  
Cartoon adventure series that focused on a group of 21st century Oceanauts in their experimental complex on the ocean floor. (30 mins.)
“ One of the last of the Hanna-Barbera adventure shows (apart from the Super Friends), it featured aquatic adventures with ecological focus. Featured Ross Martin of The Wild Wild West. It would later spawn Adult Swim's Sealab 2021. ” - janzeteachesit
 
17.

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.8/10 X  
Three teenagers and the ghost of a patriot from the American Revolution set across the country to uphold justice and fight discrimination. (30 mins.)

18.

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.1/10 X  
A kung-fu-fighting pup and his snickering cat sidekick battle crime. (22 mins.)
“ Fun series that tried to jump onto the kung-fu bandwagon. Very slapsticky and repetitive but succeeded on the strength of Scatman Crothers as the voice of the hero. ” - janzeteachesit
 
19.
Inch High, Private Eye (1973 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.9/10 X  
Animated childrens show about a private detective who's only a few inches tall. Aided by some normal sized teenagers... (30 mins.)
“ Pretty much a one gimmick show with little to recommend. It was one of those shows you watched because the competition didn't have anything better. ” - janzeteachesit
 
20.
Star Trek: The Animated Series (1973 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.7/10 X  
The further adventures of Captain James T. Kirk and the crew of the USS Enterprise, as they explore the galaxy and defend the United Federation of Planets. (30 mins.)
“ Animated version of the classic series. It looked good and featured the original actors, though their delivery was often wooden. The stories were great and stand alongside any from the live series. ” - janzeteachesit
 
21.
Space Sentinels (1977 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.3/10 X  
A trio of teenage superheroes, representing three different racial groups, use their powers to fight against evil forces. (30 mins.)
“ Filmation's own attempt at a superhero show, with some Star Wars elements thrown in. The trio of heroes were racially diverse and from different eras and fought a variety of menaces, including rogue Sentinels. It stole heavily from DC's Green Lantern (which stole from EE Smith's Lensmen Saga). The idea was good, though execution was shaky. ” - janzeteachesit
 
22.
Sabrina and the Groovie Goolies (1970 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.7/10 X  
Sabrina's involved with a band of monsters, The Groovy Ghoulies; a rock band with Dracula, the Wolfman, and Frankenstein; who scare people for their own amusement. (60 mins.)
Director: Hal Sutherland
“ Fun series in its day, but the humor doesn't hold up as well as you age. Sabrina carried over from the Archies, but the Goolies were the reason to watch. It was essentially Laugh-In, with the Universal monsters. ” - janzeteachesit
 
23.
Flash Gordon (1979 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.3/10 X  
The adventures of the comic strip space hero and his friends as they battle the tyranny of Ming the Merciless on the planet Mongo. (30 mins.)
“ Great adaptation of the comic strip. It started as a movie for prime time and so impressed NBC that they asked for a series. The series ended up broadcast before the movie (which expanded things to include the beginning of WW2 and the Nazis). The second season jettisoned the serialized format and added a cute dragon that killed the show. ” - janzeteachesit
 
24.
The ABC Saturday Superstar Movie (1972 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.5/10 X  
(60 mins.)
“ An interesting experiment that provided a showcase for cartoon series pilots. A few, like the Brady Kids and Lassie's Rescue Rangers, made it to series but most didn't. Style-wise, the height of the show was Oliver and the Artful Dodger, which featured designs from Alex Toth and provided a sequel to Oliver Twist. The show also featured a meeting between the Looney Tunes gang and the Groovy Goolies (with horrible animation from Filmation), an animated Lost in Space, cartoons based on Bewitched and Nanny & the Professor, and a Popeye feature with all of the King Features Syndicate cartoon characters. ” - janzeteachesit
 
25.
The Brady Kids (1972 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.7/10 X  
Six step-siblings form a pop group and go on adventures with their new found friends two pandas, a shaggy dog, and a magical bird. (30 mins.)
“ Animated version of the Brady Bunch, sans Mike, Carol, and Alice. Instead, we got a pair of panda bears and a mynah bird. the cast did their own voices for the first season, but several bowed out for the second and were replaced by the children of producer Lou Scheimer. the stories weren't anything to write home about, but they did meet up with Superman, Wonder Woman (her first animated appearance) and the Lone Ranger. ” - janzeteachesit
 
26.
The New Adventures of Gilligan (1974 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.7/10 X  
The further misadventures of the inept sailor, Gilligan and his fellow castaways, in an animated series. (30 mins.)
“ Filmation version, minus Tina Louise. As was typical of these adaptations, they didn't really expand things much. Dawn Wells voiced Maryann and Ginger It was't great, but was much better than the later, even sillier, Gilligan's Planet (they escape the island in a rocket and end up marooned on another planet!). ” - janzeteachesit
 
27.
The New Scooby-Doo Movies (1972 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.8/10 X  
The Mystery Inc. gang investigate more supernatural sightings with various guest stars and characters. (43 mins.)
“ First sequel to the original series, it featured guest stars voicing themselves, ranging from Sonny and Cher to Batman & Robin, with an eclectic bunch in between. The mysteries weren't as inventive and episodes varied greatly, depending on who was the guest star. The pair of Batman episodes were pretty good. ” - janzeteachesit
 
28.
Harlem Globe Trotters (1970 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.3/10 X  
The adventures of a basketball comedy team. (30 mins.)
“ Animated adventures of the Globetrotters. Not especially memorable; it was about average for cartoons of the era. ” - janzeteachesit
 
29.
Here Come the Double Deckers! (1970 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.6/10 X  
The adventures of a gang of seven kids whose clubhouse is an abandoned double decker bus in a London junkyard. Usually involves a bit of singing, a bit of dancing and general fun times. (30 mins.)
“ Interesting British show that played here in the states. A gang of kids has a clubhouse in an old double-decker bus, in a junkyard. I have very vague memories, but it was a very inventive show with a lot of charm. It took me the better part of 20 years to verify that this show existed. Thank you IMDB (and a bio of the Harlem Globetrotters, that gave me a possible name for the show). ” - janzeteachesit
 
30.
Help!... It's the Hair Bear Bunch! (1971 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.3/10 X  
Animated series centering on three bears who live in a zoo. Every now and then they try to sneak out of the zoo... (30 mins.)
“ Another H-B show, borrowing more than a bit from Tennessee Tuxedo, in terms of the zoo setting. Not especially funny, compared to other shows; but, it was entertaining enough to kill a half hour until a better cartoon came along. ” - janzeteachesit
 
31.
Speed Buggy (1973 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.0/10 X  
Animated 'Saturday-morning' television cartoon about a race car. (30 mins.)
“ Essentially Scooby Doo, but with a talking dune buggy and its race team. It was ok. ” - janzeteachesit
 
32.
Jabberjaw (1976 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.0/10 X  
The futuristic undersea adventures of a goofy talking shark and his human musical band companions. (30 mins.)
“ Scooby Doo underwater, with Curly Howard's personality borrowed for the shark. The underwater setting gave it a bit more than the other Scooby Doo ripoffs. ” - janzeteachesit
 
33.
Around the World in Eighty Days (1972 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.8/10 X  
(30 mins.)
Director: Leif Gram
“ Taking its lead more from the movie, rather than the Verne story, this series was produced in Australia, for Hanna-Barbera. H-B acquired interests in an Australian studio and farmed a lot of their work out to them during this era. It wasn't bad, but it didn't stand out either. ” - janzeteachesit
 
34.
Sigmund and the Sea Monsters (1973 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.1/10 X  
Sigmund is a sea monster. He's also a tremendous embarrassment to his family because, unlike a normal sea monster... (30 mins.)
“ Another Krofft show. Not quite as memorable as the earlier stuff. Featured Johnnie Whitaker of Family Affair (he played Jodie). Billy Barty, I think, was Sigmund. ” - janzeteachesit
 
35.
The Bugaloos (1970 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.0/10 X  
The Bugaloos are a rock-n-roll band with bug wings who live in a magical forest. Benita Bizarre wants to put an end to their goody-goody behavior... (30 mins.)
“ Another early Krofft show. The music elevated this one a bit. Martha Rae got to chew a lot of scenery. I only vaguely remember this, which has only slightly been helped by clips that appeared in the 90s Saturday Morning's Greatest Hits video album (based on the CD, with 90s bands covering various cartoon theme songs). ” - janzeteachesit
 
36.
Partridge Family 2200 AD (1974 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.3/10 X  
The adventures of a futuristic version of the Partridge Family. (30 mins.)
“ This was actually meant to be a Jetsons sequel, but the designs were shoehorned into a series with the Partridge Family. It stunk! ” - janzeteachesit
 
37.
Jeannie (1973 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.4/10 X  
Corey Anders, an average California teenager, finds an unusual-looking bottle on the beach while surfing... (30 mins.)
“ Animated I Dream of Jeannie, minus Majors Nelson and Healy and everyone else from NASA, not to mention, Barbara Eden. Typical H-B. The character design would pop up again in Laffalympics. ” - janzeteachesit
 
38.
Challenge of the Superfriends (1978 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.8/10 X  
The Justice League of America battles the plots of the supervillian team, the Legion of Doom. (30 mins.)
“ By far the best of the Super Friends shows, with actual villains from the comics comprising the Legion of Doom. This was the way the rest of the Super Friends shows should have been done. Frank Welker's voice for Toyman will set your teeth on edge, though. ” - janzeteachesit
 
39.
Tarzan and the Super 7 (1978 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.9/10 X  
An anthology series featuring various fantasy action heroes. (90 mins.)
“ Tarzan was teamed up with other cartoons, including: Web Woman, Manta & Moray, Super Stretch & Micro Woman, and the Freedom Force; plus, the live action Jason of Star Command (itself a sequel to Space Academy). Not bad, though Jason of Star Command was the most memorable element (apart from Tarzan). It was a space opera, heavily influenced by Star Wars, with Sid Haig as the villain, and James Doohan as the leader of Star Command (later replaced by John "Lawman" Russell). ” - janzeteachesit
 
40.
Space Academy (1977 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.2/10 X  
The adventures of the students of an outer space military school. (30 mins.)
“ Filmation's attempt at cashing in on Star Wars and Star Trek. It preceeded Jason of Star Command, though it didn't quite have the same level of excitement. It did have Jonathan Harris, of Lost In Space. ” - janzeteachesit
 
41.
Ark II (1976 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.5/10 X  
Three young scientists travel around the country in the 25th century after the world has been ravaged by pollution. In their hi-tech RV (called Ark II), they study the land and help out those in need. (25 mins.)
“ Another Filmation live-action series. This time, a team of scientists travels across a post-apocalyptic Earth, trying to get ceivilization back up to speed. The main feature was the Ark, which was inspired by Damnation Alley, though the design was different. ” - janzeteachesit
 
42.
Shazam! (1974 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.0/10 X  
A young boy, able to transform into the superhero Captain Marvel, travels the country fighting evil and helping people. (30 mins.)
“ Live action adaptation of Captain Marvel, featuring Michael Gray as Billy Batson, Les Tremayne as mentor, and Jackson Bostwick as Captain Marvel. Biily and Mentor travelled around in an RV, helping people in need, sans violence. It tried but the restrictions from the network really restrained the show. Led to the Isis spinoff and several crossovers. The Republic serial is far more entertaining; but, this has it's fans. ” - janzeteachesit
 
43.
Isis (1975 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.0/10 X  
An archaeologist gains an amulet that allows her to transform into the superheroine goddess Isis and fight evil. (30 mins.)
“ Spinoff from Shazam, featuring an original heroine in Isis. Archeologist and teacher Andrea Thomas discovers the amulet of Isis and is endowed with her abilities (mainly the ability to fly). Star Joanna Cameron was beautiful and played it straight, rivalling Lynda Carter's performance as Wonder Woman. Unfortunately, Filmation's writers didn't deliver much out of the ordinary, but the team-ups with Captain Marvel were highpoints. ” - janzeteachesit
 
44.
Far Out Space Nuts (1975 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.5/10 X  
The misadventures of two maintenance workers who are accidentally launched into space. (30 mins.)
“ Another Krofft show, with Bob Denver as star. Standard Krofft low budget and lame jokes. The most memorable part was the opening, where Denver's partner yells, "I said lunch, not launch!" later used for riffs in MST3K. ” - janzeteachesit
 
45.
The New Tom & Jerry Show (1975 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.0/10 X  
The Hanna-Barbera-created Oscar-winning cat-and-mouse team of Tom & Jerry returned to TV in an hour-long stretch of new adventures... (7 mins.)
“ Tom & Jerry returned in lamer cartoons and were joined by Mumbly (a heroic version of Muttley) and Grape Ape, the real star of the show. Grape Ape was spun off into his own show, which was standard fare, though built around Grape's immense size. ” - janzeteachesit
 
46.
Uncle Croc's Block (1975 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.2/10 X  
Director: Don Towsley
“ A Filmation series that has the dubious distinction of being cancelled before it had completed its run (very rare in Saturday Morning tv). Various cartoons were linked by live action segments with Charles Nelson Riley as Uncle Croc. The cartoons were fairly lame, including a take off of MASH (but with dogs) and a mastadon pair named Wacky and Packy. i don't remember the rest, mainly because the show stunk! ” - janzeteachesit
 
47.
Goober and the Ghost Chasers (1973 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.3/10 X  
A dog, able to become temporarily invisible, and his human companions investigate mysteries involving the paranormal. (30 mins.)
“ Another Scooby ripoff. Not particularly memorable. If I recall correctly, the dog, Goober, disappeared when he was scared. Something like that. Meh... ” - janzeteachesit
 
48.
Butch Cassidy (1973 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.3/10 X  
The globe-trotting adventures of a group of teenage spies masquerading as a rock-and-roll band. (30 mins.)
“ Better known as Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kids. Sort of Scooby Doo, but more a mix of music and spies. Butch and the gang act as agents for a spy organization, receiving their orders from a talking computer. It was a decent show. Mickey Dolenz, of the Monkees, voiced one of the characters. ” - janzeteachesit
 
49.
Josie and the Pussycats (1970 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.3/10 X  
'Josie and the Pussycats' is a pop music group. During their tours are always involved in strange mysteries. (30 mins.)
“ Part Archie, part Scooby Doo. An all-female trio investigates mysteries, along with their agent and his sister. It was pretty fun. ” - janzeteachesit
 
50.
Josie and the Pussy Cats in Outer Space (1972 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.5/10 X  
Josie and the gang are doing a photo shoot on a rocket ship when Alexadra, wanting to get into the spotlight... (30 mins.)
“ H-B was running out of ideas here. Basically the original show shot into space, though not as interesting, if you can believe it. ” - janzeteachesit
 
51.
Devlin (1974 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.2/10 X  
Three teenage circus performers travel the country solving mysteries. (30 mins.)
“ It was supposed to be Evel Knievel, but he passed on it, so H-B created their own daredevil. Like most immitators, it didn't stick. He was put to better use on Harvey Birdman. ” - janzeteachesit
 
52.
Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels (1977 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.5/10 X  
The adventures of a superhero caveman and a trio of female amateur detectives.
“ Rather loud series featuring a Josie and the Pussycats copycat band and a caveman superhero. Probably didn't do much for Mel Blanc's voice. ” - janzeteachesit
 
53.
Fred and Barney Meet the Shmoo (1979 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.6/10 X  
(90 mins.)
“ Fairly forgettable Flintstones series, with the Shmoo added, from Li'l Abner. The problem was, Abner was gone by then and most of the kids had no idea what a Shmoo was. Alternate form of Fred and Barney Meet the Thing. ” - janzeteachesit
 
54.
Fred and Barney Meet the Thing (1979 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.4/10 X  
A show featuring two different cartoon segments,The New Fred and Barney Show (a revival of The Flintstones) and The Thing (based on the Marvel Comics superhero). (60 mins.)
“ Same as above, but with the Thing, from the Fantastic Four. However, this Thing was a teenager who turned into the Thing. Not exactly a masterpiece. ” - janzeteachesit
 
55.

A series of shorts illustrating various songs that teach multiplication tables, grammar, science, American history, computers, economics, and environmentalism. (3 mins.)
Director: Tom Warburton
“ Short cartoons broadcast between shows on ABC. It began with Multiplication Rock and soon followed with Grammar Rock, America Rock, and Science Rock. Catchy songs helped introduce multiplication tables, elements of grammar, American History, and principles of science. The Preamble song helped many of us with the Constitution test in Civics classes. The US Congress used I'm Just a Bill and The Three Ring Circus as a training tool for Congressional aides. ” - janzeteachesit
 
56.
The Skatebirds (1977 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.8/10 X  
(60 mins.)
“ Pretty much a Banana Splits knock off, with the Three Robonic Stooges and Mystery island. ” - janzeteachesit
 
57.
My Favorite Martians (1973 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.0/10 X  
Director: Hal Sutherland
“ Another animated adaptation. These things usually failed, as the principal actors rarely voiced their characters. The animation did allow for things that live-action couldn't afford to do. ” - janzeteachesit
 
58.
Lancelot Link: Secret Chimp (1970 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.8/10 X  
A member of pop band Evolution Revolution, Lancelot Link is called upon by the Agency to Prevent Evil (APE), in their ongoing fight against CHUMP. (60 mins.)
“ As weird as it sounds. The show featured chimpanzees as the characters, including our hero, Lancelot Link. You can't explain it, you just have to see it. ” - janzeteachesit
 
59.
The New Adventures of Batman (1977 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.2/10 X  
Batman, Robin and Batgirl fight crime in Gotham City with the "help" of Batmite. (30 mins.)
“ Filmation's version of Batman returned, while he still appeared on H-B's Super Friends. This time, he was voiced by Adam West, with Burt Ward as Robin. Not quite as good as the 60s cartoon series, since they couldn't fight the villains as in that series, but ok. Batmite was beyond annoying. ” - janzeteachesit

Miss Tickle is a high school teacher who has some magical powers, augmented by accessories in her bag...
“ Another Filmation series, featuring a teacher who had magical powers. She would draw a door on a chalkboard and it would open to another world, complete with a young, animated Rick Springfield. His autobiography mentions it only once (just one sentence, I believe), which pretty much sums up the series, though it seemed ok when I was young. ” - janzeteachesit

In this show, Archie and the gang present animated adaptations of popular comic strips like Smokey Stover and Dick Tracy. (30 mins.)
Director: Hal Sutherland
“ I remember loving this as a little kid, with the Riverdale gang operating a tv station that showed cartoons based on comic strips. The only bit I can recall with any clarity was Dick Tracy. I've seen some of the other cartoons in later years and Tracy was definitely the best. ” - janzeteachesit

Archie and the Riverdale gang explore and reenact important moments of American history. (30 mins.)
“ Preping for the Bicentennial, Archie and the gang explore American history, meeting famous people. It was educational, if a bit dry. ” - janzeteachesit

Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids (1972 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.0/10 X  
The educational adventures of a group of Afro-American inner city kids. (30 mins.)
“ Arguably the best cartoon series Filmation produced. Bill Cosby's routines about his old neighborhood were brought to life, complete with Cos in tow. The gang had adventures, sang a song, and learned a thing or two. Great fun and full of good moral lessons. ” - janzeteachesit
 
64.
Wheelie and the Chopper Bunch (1974 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.2/10 X  
(6 mins.)
“ Another fairly forgettable series, with motorcycle characters. There was a comic book, which featured early work by John Byrne (X-Men, Fantastic Four, Superman), from Charlton. Other than that, not much to note. ” - janzeteachesit
 
65.
The Osmonds (1972 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.4/10 X  
(30 mins.)
“ Cartoon show with the Mormons' favorite pop group. Jimmy was generally portrayed as a brat, if I recall. ” - janzeteachesit
 
66.

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.3/10 X  
The animated musical adventures of the Jackson brothers. (30 mins.)
“ Cartoon version of the Jackson 5. Pretty much an excuse to run animation to their songs, following in the tradition of the Beatles cartoon. ” - janzeteachesit
 
67.
Return to the Planet of the Apes (1975 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.6/10 X  
While on a mission, three astronauts in their space ship get caught in a time vortex. They return to Earth in the year A.D. 3979 and discover that intelligent apes are now the highest form of life. (24 mins.)
“ This came a little late for the Apes gravy train, but was well conceived, with mature stories that continued across episodes. The design was from Doug Wildey (Jonny Quest), but it was hampered by bland voice acting static animation. ” - janzeteachesit
 
68.
The Super Globetrotters (1979 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.7/10 X  
The adventures of the basketball team as superheroes.
“ Another attempt at an animated Globetrotter show, this time as superheroes. This was a pretty dumb concept, though slightly better than The 3 Robonic Stooges. ” - janzeteachesit
 
69.
The All-New Super Friends Hour (1977 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.2/10 X  
A team of the greatest DC Comics superheroes protects Earth with the help of a pair of alien sibling apprentices. (60 mins.)
“ Second iteration of the Super Friends, introducing the Wonder Twins, and adding a team-up with a new hero each week. We finally got some villains, but only a couple from the comics. Debut of Apache Chief, Samurai and Black Vulcan; and, debut of Rima the Jungle Girl, of all characters. I tended to find the shorter segments (especially the team-ups with the non-core characters) more entertaining than the big adventure of the week. It desperately needed more villains and plots from the comics. ” - janzeteachesit
 
70.
The World's Greatest SuperFriends (1979 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.9/10 X  
The further and darker adventures of the team consisting of DC Comics' greatest superheroes. (30 mins.)

71.
The Roman Holidays (1972 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.7/10 X  
By the same people that brought us "Flintstones, The" (1960), this similar cartoon was about people living in Rome in 63 A.D. (22 mins.)
“ Sitcom cartoon, set in ancient Rome. Typical fare. Think of the Flintstones, in the Roman era, but with less quality in the work. ” - janzeteachesit

Short-lived Saturday morning live-action series about the daily struggles of an extended family of Neanderthals in prehistoric Europe... (30 mins.)
“ A rare live-action series from Hanna-Barbera, about a family of neanderthals. I rember this being on but I don't think I ever saw a single episode. ” - janzeteachesit
 
75.
Valley of the Dinosaurs (1974 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.2/10 X  
The plane outline is incorrect. There is no plane. (30 mins.)
“ Another "lost world" cartoon. Pretty much middle grade fare, storywise, but it looked good. ” - janzeteachesit
 
76.
The Flintstone Comedy Hour (1972 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.6/10 X  
“ Another attempt at the Flintstones, borrowing a page from Pebbles and Bam Bam, with musical numbers. Not as good as the original show, but what is? ” - janzeteachesit
 
77.
The Addams Family (1973 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.8/10 X  
The Addams Family is not your typical family: they take delight in most of the things that "normal" people would be terrified of... (30 mins.)
“ The cartoon version of our favorite mysterious and spooky family. These were pretty good, for the time, and captured the flavor of the original show well. ” - janzeteachesit
 
78.
Lidsville (1971 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.0/10 X  
A boy finds himself trapped in a land populated by living hat-people which is ruled by a crotchety magician.
“ Another weird Krofft show. The characters were all hats, with personalities to match. Not as creative as Pufnstuf, but it is hard to forget the image of a green skinned Charles Nelson Riley flying through the air in a giant top hat! ” - janzeteachesit
 
79.
Tarzan, Lord of the Jungle (1976 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.0/10 X  
This series is based on the adventures of Tarzan who seeks to champion the less fortunate, to right wrongs and to protect both the animals in his jungle as well as the human visitors. (30 mins.)
“ Great show from Filmation, using rotoscoping (animating over live footage) to give the character more movement. It looked great but they used the same shots over and over. The writers defaulted to lost civilizations a lot but it was memorable. ” - janzeteachesit
 
80.
The Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm Show (1971 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.8/10 X  
The misadventures of the children of the Flintstones and the Rubbles as teenagers. (30 mins.)

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.5/10 X  
The various Hanna Barbera characters compete in their own version of the Olympic Games.
“ Essentially a remake of Wacky Races, this series grew out of the 1976 Olympics, in Montreal. You had three teams; one led by Yogi Bear, another by Scooby Doo, and a third comprised of all of the villains. It was pretty much the same thing every week. ” - janzeteachesit
 
82.

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.7/10 X  
Scooby Doo and the gang solve mysteries; then Blue Falcon and Dynomutt fight crime in each two-part episode of this animated series. (24 mins.)
“ More of the same from Scooby Doo; but, Dyno Mutt brought some superhero goofiness. Frank Welker (Fred on Scooby Doo) provided the voice, while Gary Owens (Laugh-In and Space Ghost) voiced Blue Falcon. Played a bit too much for cheap laughs it was still a pretty fun show. ” - janzeteachesit
 
83.
Yogi's Gang (1973 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.2/10 X  
When his natural habitat is threatened to be overrun by civilization and pollution, Yogi Bear, together with his faithful sidekick... (30 mins.)
“ Spun off from the ABC Saturday Superstar Movie feature, Yogi's Ark, this featured the H-B gang of cartoon characters in environmentally themed episodes, travelling aroung in a balloon. It was kind of preachy and not as fun as the old shorts. ” - janzeteachesit
 
84.

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.3/10 X  
Variety show hosted by singing group The Hudson Brothers. (60 mins.)
Director: Art Fisher
“ Attempt at a variety show, with the Hudson Brothers band. It failed. The only real connection to today is that Kate Hudson is the daughter of one of the band members. ” - janzeteachesit
 
85.
The Krofft Supershow (1976 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.4/10 X  
An anthology of live action fantasy adventure shows.
“ This had some variation is segments. It started out being hosted by Captain Kool and the Kongs, who were soon replaced by the Bay City Rollers.The most memorable segments were Electro Woman and Dyna Girl, which was a rip off of the Batman tv series, and Dr. Shrinker, a take off on Land of the Giants and similar shows and movies. Electra Woman had charm and Deidre Hall in spandex, while Shrinker could occassionally be kind of scary. Wonderbug was pretty much Speed Buggy recycled, with less creativity and action, while I barely remember the other features. Witchiepoo was back in a segment, at one point. ” - janzeteachesit
 
86.
Godzilla (1978 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.5/10 X  
The crew of the research vessel, The Calico, investigate strange phenomena and often meet menaces that force them to summon Godzilla to help. (30 mins.)
“ H-B version of the Big G, with Godzooky and some humans. Godzilla fought other creatures, but nothing like the movies. Ted Cassidy did the roar. Better than most. ” - janzeteachesit

The Fantastic Four (1978 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.1/10 X  
The super-elastic Mr. Fantastic, the force field-wielding Invisible Girl, the orange rock-covered Thing and the data-crammed robot Herbie make up a team of superheroes dedicated to thwarting would-be world-dominating villains.
“ Not up to the standards of the 1967 series, but it tried. infamous for replacing the Human Torch with HERBIE the Robot. Urban legend says it was because of the Torch catching fire, but the truth was he had been optioned by another studio and couldn't be used. Jack Kirby worked on the character designs, reuniting him with Marvel, though by circumstance, not choice. It was a bit stiff, due to budgets of the period. ” - janzeteachesit
 
88.
The Ghost Busters (1975 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.6/10 X  
Two guys and their pet gorilla hunt spooks. (30 mins.)
“ The real, original Ghost Busters, featuring Forrest Tucker and Larry Storch, and a guy in a gorilla suit. Silly live action fare from Filmation, who were later able to create an animated series and force the other show to call itself The Real Ghost Busters. ” - janzeteachesit

The adventures of the original stretchable superhero and various other characters. (120 mins.)
“ Cartoon series headed by the classic Plastic Man. Plas debuted on the original Super Frinds show (in cartoon form, anyway) and is joined by several friends. It was inventive, though nowhere near as good as Jack Cole's comics. Plas later got a baby. Woozie Winks was replaced, inexplicably, by Hula-Hula. The other cartoons, like Mighty Man and Yuck, were fairly lame. ” - janzeteachesit
