I, too, was a young teen who became much more politically aware thanks to this wonderful program's focus on current events through a counter-culture perspective.
My more vivid memories, however, are of Chevy Chase and Ken Shapiro (I think) in mime's white face, with Ken playing Chevy's head like a bongo to the rhythm of classical music selections.
There was also a semi-regular cooking-show segment with disastrous instructions for such culinary misfires as the Fourth of July "Freedom Loaf."
How I would love to re-experience the series on DVD.
