Trivia

CBS implied that a full season's worth of episodes were completed. Action for Children's Television barred the program from ever airing in the US because of blatant commercialism, though they never screened any episodes. See more »

a cartoon that never actually aired on network TV from the 80s
27 March 2006 | by gordon-39See all my reviews

Weirdly the previous commenter remembers seeing the show -- except it never actually aired on network TV. He actually has the names of a couple of the movie parody titles correct. I'd be interested to find out how he knew them.

The show was comprised of 6 elements. Four were one minute "gags." One was a short adventure story with a regular cast of GP Kids and one element was the aforementioned movie parody. The point was to use as many of the cards as possible throughout the series.

The trivia from IMDb is correct. Action For Children's TV refused to even run the episodes before threatening to wage an attack of some sort on CBS. Intestingly enough another show aired about a year later (never good with time and dates) that depending on how you want to look at it was far more "outrageous" -- this was Beetlejuice the cartoon.

I suppose if there's any buildup of interest at all in this series it's to see how offensive it really was. I'm most curious to find out what the verdict will be.
