Trivia

"The Harlem Globetrotters Popcorn Machine" was one of the first shows produced by Viacom Productions. Viacom went on to produce such successful network series as "Diagnosis: Murder" starring Dick Van Dyke for CBS, "Matlock" starring Andy Griffith for NBC, and "Sabrina, the Teenage Witch" starring Melissa Joan Hart for ABC and then the WB Network. Viacom Productions was active until 2004 when it was folded into Paramount Television; like Paramount Television's product, CBS Television Studios now owns all the Viacom Productions shows, including this one.

Slow Motion Replays
11 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The part I remember about this show was the Globetrotters would do a few seconds of the "magic circle" where they do fancy basketball tricks and moves, then they would say that they were going to replay what you just saw in slow motion and you were to look for things you did not see the first time. The "slow motion" replay would consist of silly elements like passing the ball to Meadowlark and he would be dribbling while drinking a glass of water and then pass the ball to Curly who would be sitting in an easy chair while he dribbled, etc. As I recall they did this gag on every show.

It was a long time ago.
