The Hudson Brothers--Bill, Mark and Brett--hosted this colorful and fast-paced Saturday morning comedy variety series aimed at children. Taped in Toronto, the show featured plenty of music, sketches, blackouts and one crazed emu puppet that attacked almost everyone in the cast. Written by Marty McKee <>

Whenever I Reminisce of these 3 brothers I'm always immediately transported through time starting from the special back in 1974 in which they were the hosts of The CBS Saturday Morning Preview Special then next when they were the stars of this, their own Saturday Morning TV Show of The 1974-75 season & beyond when they were heard on the radio & the amusement park ride of the Hymilaya Singing their #26 hit of 1975,Rendezvous.But Back to their show each week I enjoyed their shows opening introducing them as well as their other costars(including The Bear of was originally from The Andy Williams Show as well as later in between in The CBS TV movie,The Bear and I.And then later the public service TV ad of You wouldn't want Bears to Careless with fire in your home,so don't be careless with fire in there's.Next his main part of this show is in his feature of Sam Bear,Private Eye(He also ought to be credited on this site.)right up to when on to the show They sing We're gonna Razzle Dazzle you...set yourself down.I didn't care for neither Freddie nor The Super Guys.I did like Rod Hull & his Emu even though I could tell that he had a fake arm around the bird.These 2 made it on to The Johnny Carson Show in 1984.I liked the space cadets & the 1950's sequence including when they sang these songs Splish,splash I was taking a bath & Goodness,gracious great balls of fire.I Also liked the sequence of Chuckie loves Cindy. 5/15 is my birthday & this makes a good reminiscence for me to comment on for my also really transports me again & again too through & through. Truthfully, Stephen "Steve" G. Baer a.k.a. "Ste" of Framingham,Ma. USA
