Storyline

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 ...

How I wish I could see this baby again...
23 December 2006 | by (United States (Columbus, Ohio)) – See all my reviews

Oh, my God- I was only in preschool when this happened- only it was known as "Jump, Rattle and Roll", and was shown on the Disney Channel. I watched it every chance I could. What I wouldn't give to see D.E.C.K.S. (Digital Electrosonic Cassette-Headed Kinematic System) and Sam have a rip-roaring time in their basement again, with KC and Grandpa Quirk popping up every chance THEY could... oh, and let's not forget the 'toons that made WRR the phenomenon it was: "Fender Bender 500" (a sort-of-"Wacky Races" for the 21st century) and "Monster Tails" (a haunted zoo under the lead of Igor's son). Oh, how I wish the whole show could come back on DVD!
