Hanna Barbera Rips-off Themselves and the Kroffts
31 March 2004 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

This had to be one of the lamest Saturday morning shows of all time. As another person said it was very reminiscent of Hanna Barbera's classic Saturday morning show of the late 1960's, "The Banana Splits". The comedy blackouts featuring three rollerskating birds (hence the title) being chased by a rollerskating cat that made Sylvester look like Albert Einstein. Also, the shorts that were on this show lacked anything close to memorable, except for "The Robotic Stooges", which wound up being spun off on its own. The other shorts, "Wonder Wheels" (an obvious rip off of the Krofft brothers' "Wonder Bug" shorts) and "Mystery Island" made me change the channel whenever they came on. The "Mystery Island" shorts were especially horrific, due to the fact that it was pretty much a rehash of the H.B.'s live action classic, "Danger Island". At least that show had some action and some memorable characters. Also, you know that this is a bad show when they have to use one of their earlier creations, "The Clue Club" in a heavilly edited version and re-name it "Whoofer and Whimper" after the two dogs. However, the main thing this show lacked was the inventivness of a couple of former H.B. productions employees, Sid and Marty Krofft. They were busy producing a show which this show was obviously inspired by, "The Krofft Supershow".
