This show belonged in prime time
21 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's a shame that prime time animation was out of fashion in the mid-1970s, because that's where "These Are The Days" belonged. The acting was better than on most animated shows (and if you consider that some of the actors, such as June Lockhart and Frank Cady, were not normally associated with cartoons and could be more naturalistic, you'll understand why I say this), the artwork was better (I remember some of it resembling Currier and Ives), and the scripts were literate enough to appeal to adults as well as kids. On top of this, the show taught family values we could still use, such as working together in a crisis. With "The Waltons" and "Little House On The Prairie" dominating 8 PM (Eastern) slots on CBS and NBC, respectively, this one could have done the same thing for ABC.
