Yikes!

I had plumb forgot this thread :o

Yeah I know some of the above have been mentioned before but I thought I'd start to make things easier to find.  :P Any objections to me adding already mentioned shows into the alphabeticaly sorted thread?

And yes I could start adding these to the wiki but I think I'll wait abit and see what we catch!

Okay, one that I used to watch every Sunday - Science Fiction Theater with host Truman Bradley.

And Spycraft gone horribly, horribly wrong - Captain Video!

The secret identifying ring, is so secret that everyone can have it for two wraps and 10 cents :P
lol!!!

Which reminds me the identifying ring has been a motif in a lot of cartoons, series and movie jokes.

This was my favorite show of the 70's. I never missed an episode. I looked for it for years on tape, but gave up.

Actually I see at as a precursor to Transformers et al. Shows designed primarily to sell toys were not new to the 70's. They just took it to a new level.

Perhaps one of you guys can help me remember a couple of shows I've been looking for. The first was a police S.W.A.T. show from the late 80's-early 90's that used Janet Jackson's "Nasty Boys" as it's opening theme song. The second was a show that took old movies and dubbed over new, funny dialogue over it.

ThunderMonkey, you've just put the biggest smile on my face for a long time with that second Electric Company intro. I was 5 years old again for a minute. ;D Does anyone remember the Bloodhound Gang from that show?

The one with the old movies would probably be Mystery Science Theather 3000.
The people who worked on it are still around and doing the same stuff in slightly different formats.

I'm guessing the second show is "Mad Movies." They ran for several years on the USA network. I couldn't find much on you tube. Just a couple of episodes doing Sherlock Holmes. The best one I saw when It was on was a Captain Marvel serial, and they did the original DOA.
MST3K came later and did a slightly different thing.

You two rule! I've been looking for the names of those two shows forever and a day! ^_^ MST3K was great, but they did different things than what I was thinking of from Mad Movies. And Nasty Boys (from what little I remember of it) was a great show. Shame it never lasted too long... :(

Edit: Never knew Dennis Franz was in Nasty Boys...

Night Flight also did this at least once with J Men Forever

This is hilarious. A friend has a copy that we watch occasionally

YEs, I forgot about J-men forever. I believe it procedes the original Mad Movies, and may be what the orignal poster was thinking of. The two shows are amazingly similar though.

The orignal mad movies used some of the same voices Jay Ward used, which was a great effect. I specifically remember Hunchback of Notre Dame sounding having a cartoon voice that was often used on Bullwinkle.
