Series cast summary:
 Bobby Joe Mason (unknown episodes)


This series depicts the adventures of the famous basketball/comedy team as they toured around the world. The regular formula was usually that they would stop to help someone in trouble and get involved in a dispute that has to be inevitably settled by a basketball game that the villians set in an unusual setting to insure the Globetrotters will lose, like on ice against hockey players or against kangaroos. The team would be trounced in the first half, but always found a way to even the odds which would allow their superior skill to win the game in the second.

Who could ever forget that theme song?
15 March 2004 | by (Lubbock, TX) – See all my reviews

Who could ever forget that theme song? This was all about good clean fun. By the time this show was on the Harlem Globe Trotters had become world-wide sensations and this group of players were the best they ever had. Everyone's favorites were Curly (who could dribble a basketball like no other) and Meadowlark Lemon. These guys brought a lot of joy into people's lives and they were immortalized in this cartoon. They would travel around in a van and helped kids learn lessons. This was as good as Saturday morning cartoons would ever get and we sure could use some of this goodwill today. Robert Smigel spoofed this show on Saturday Night Live and he too was of the generation that loved this show. Go go Harlem Globetrotters.
