A Bold Concept
25 June 2003 | by See all my reviews

This was a pretty amazing show for its time. Imagine a movie of the week devoted entirely to animated shows. It also was amazing that the three major animation studios of that era (Hanna-Barbera, Filmation and Rankin Bass) as well as a couple of other studios went along with the idea and all produced "movies" for this show. Another interesting aspect of this show was that it served as sort of a preview for upcoming series. In fact, the week before the Brady Kids animated series premiered, it appeared on this show as an hour long preview. In fact, many other animated series had tryouts on this show including the film on which "Yogi's Gang" was based as well as the film on which "Lassie's Rescue Rangers" was based as well. I hope Boomerang or Cartoon Network goes into the vaults and starts to show some of these films again. In fact, many of them deserved to be made into series as well.
