Here's a hit techno-pop tune from the 80's club scene.

Radio stations used to air "club music" regularly in the Seattle market back in the 80's. This is electronic music made for the dance floor rather than radio airplay, yet the song was popular enough that it found favor with early gamers who were caught up in the "robot music" fad.

By the end of the 1960's CBS owned Saturday Mornings with top rated superhero cartoons leading the way - and hate mail from children's television "watchdog" organizations like, "Action for Children's Television - ACT", as one example.

By 1970 the pressure on CBS, and the other networks, was so great that "non-cartoon" entertainment was being produced and promoted from every content provider back in the day. But the question was, "what will the kids watch that will win parental approval?"

How about music and comedy? Remember "Hee-Haw" and "The Sonny & Cher Comedy Hour"?

Well the same studios that make primetime television can easily come up with SatAM shows that are kid friendly, afterall it was the 1970's, don't cha' know!

This rare clip is from the 1977 SatAM comedy series, "WACKO!", starring a cast of stand-up comedians - like Charles Fleischer, (the voice of Roger Rabbit in the 1988 movie).

Dwight Twilley was best friends with Tom Petty and they both made careers in music. This is the "Dwight Twilley Band" as guests on WACKO! - the Saturday morning comedy show that only lasted one season on CBS. Think of WACKO! as a morning version of SNL:



"WACKO!" wasn't alone in trying to shake-up Saturday Mornings on CBS.

Here's the intro to, "The Hudson Brothers Razzle-Dazzle Show", from just a couple of years earlier. Imagine starting a show with this same recorded intro every week!






And speaking of "The Bear", that was , "The Cookie Bear" made popular from, "The Andy Williams Show". I don't know if you guys realize how beloved Cookie Bear became. He began as an innocent comedy skit but was so popular as a regular feature that Cookie Bear may have helped extend the run of "The Andy Williams Show" into the 1970's - long after Andy's singing style was well out of favor!
