Voice Actors of The Flintstones

Today, we thought we would introduce you to the quartet of actors that collectively gave their voice to our Bedrock friends, The Flintstones, over fifty years ago. Sadly, none of these remarkable talents are still with us, but the memories remain strong, thanks to the six seasons they spent together - bringing Fred, Wilma, Barney and Betty to life in such a magical way. Let's take a look at the people behind the voices. Continue reading...

Wacky Races

Wacky Races

Debuting in 1968, Wacky Races really consisted of only one race - one really, really long race. It covered the entire planet and never seemed to end. Was there a trophy? Who sponsored the race? When did they stop to fill up? These questions were never answered (but nobody seemed to mind) as the racers competed for first place and the title, "World's Wackiest Racer." Let's take a look back at this classic cartoon. Continue reading...

Wait Till Your Father Gets Home

Wait Till Your Father Gets Home

Unlike Trix cereal, cartoons aren't always for kids. The Flintstones, created by Hanna-Barbera, blazed the prime-time animation trail in the 60s, proving that a cartoon series could hold its own against some live-action competition. In the 70s, Hanna-Barbera tried again with Wait Till Your Father Gets Home, a show about a typical family with a few issues. And, much like The Flintstones borrowed from The Honeymooners, the new show was inspired by the much more controversial sitcom, All in the Family. Continue reading...

You Can't Do That On Television

You Can’t Do That On Television

One of the first big hits to emerge on the up-and-coming Nickelodeon cable channel, You Can't Do That On Television (YCDTOTV) quickly endeared itself to young viewers with its bathroom-humor-laced sketch comedy performed by kids. But the show will always be best remembered for introducing the young populace to green slime, a substance that is now a trademark for the Nickelodeon brand, thanks to this long-running series that was required daily viewing for many an 80s kid. Continue reading...

Zoom

Zoom

Back in the 70s, you might recall watching a fun little TV series called Zoom, one of the first children's shows hosted entirely by kids. Created by WGBH, the public station in Boston, the series was aimed at grade-schoolers and featured a rotating cast of seven to ten kids who performed songs, dances, games and skits for their peers at home. It is still fondly remembered by a generation of former kids who faithfully tuned in each week. Continue reading...
