Series cast summary:
 Glitter (24 episodes, 1984-1985)


At the beginning of each episode, Kidd Video and the rest of his basement-band are live-action characters who get forced into a bizarre and animated world by the hands of the evil (and animated) record producer Master Blaster. They become animated themselves, but always find their way back to the "real world" and foil the nefarious plans of Master Blaster, and just in time to play a song before the show ends.

Catchy tunes
28 September 2000 | by (San Mateo, CA) – See all my reviews

I totally agree with the one positive review of this cartoon (how can anyone say that this is the "worst" Saturday morning cartoon? By the nature of being a Saturday morning cartoon, they are usually just as cheesy as this was -- especially after watching "Strawberry Shortcake" or "Reboot"). This show was cheesy, but spawned several catchy tunes that I can still remember fondly. And a cartoon that features Cousin Oliver (Robbie Rist) from the Brady Bunch can't be all bad ...
