3] A TRIBUTE TO CAPTAIN KANGAROO
I bought this once before there, and there was no sound to it at all. I've probably made a sucker purchase.....

"Julia"

7] 77 SUNSET STRIP

8] ALICE IN WONDERLAND (Or What's A Nice Kid Like You Doing In A Place Like This?)
This is the cartoon verson with the vocal talents of Sammy Davis Jr, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Bill Dana, Howard Morris, Harvey Korman, Allan Melvin, and Hedda Hopper. (WTF?) Plus Alan Reed and Mel Blanc as Fred and Barney as a 2 headed caterpillar.

I saw it and know at who's house I saw it. It should be weird to go down that path again.....

BCnU!

"Wait Till Your Father Gets Home' was quite grounbreaking, I think.gents

I remember thinking that when I first saw it, Paul. Any others that were in prime time had gimmicks - Flintstones, Jetsons, Where's Huddles?, etc. This was just slice of life in toon.
