Saturday morning shenanigans
28 July 2004 | by (Weaverville, NC) – See all my reviews

The other reviewer who has seen this show speculated that the Kids were a Sid and Marty Krofft product. They weren't. Don Kirshner, former musical supervisor for the Monkees, oversaw both the music and the show, so it's only natural the Kids seemed not a little like the Pre-Fab Four. It's not hard to make that mistake: the Kroffts had the live-action Saturday morning market cornered, in addition to having a couple of pre-fab groups themselves, like the Bugaloos and Kaptain Kool and the Kongs. I have the Kids' sole Lp: it ain't great, even by bubblegum standards(perhaps because bubblegum music peeked about six years earlier). However, there were some noteworthy names involved. Neil Sedaka contributed a song, and Paul Schaffer (David Letterman's band leader)functioned as musical arranger, I believe.
