Series cast summary:
 Bulk Logan (1 episode)


Kids show with live action intro and breaks and two or three cartoon segments. The show's hosts, a kid called Sam and his robot friend D.E.C.K.S., who looks a lot like Johnny 5 from Short Circuit (1986), introduce two animated segments in each episode (or three in the rereleased version of the show retitled as Jump, Rattle and Roll). The segments were "Fender Bender 500", a monster truck racing cartoon with a concept similar to Wacky Races (1968) that includes many racers from that show, and "Monster Tails", a cartoon about the cats, dogs and other pets of famous movie monsters like the Frankenstein's Monster, who all live together in a castle in Transylvania with their guardian Igor Jr, the son of Dr. Frankenstein's assistant. The third segment featured either the Tom and Jerry-esque "Dino and the Cave Mouse" segment from The Flintstone Comedy Show (1980) about the family's pet dinosaur and a troublesome house mouse or "Undercover Elephant" from C B Bears (1977) about an elephant ...

I loved this show
24 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The showed originally aired as Wake, Rattle and Roll. Man I remember getting up for school watching this (7:30 am). I liked the Wacky Races segment they did. I think that they took turns with it and it didn't always air. The monster Tails segment was good too, but not as good as the wacky Racers. I remember there being the big mean sister that was always causing problems. And some weird inventions. Then out of nowhere it started coming on at 6am instead. Yes, I got up just to watch it. After the first season it then went to the Disney channel where it was renamed "Jump, Rattle & Roll". I wish it was on DVD. But like most shows that had about one season it will probably never happen.
