PUT THIS OUT ON VIDEO NOW!!
What a delightful memory. Although it only lasted a couple of seasons, this time capsule was shown on Saturday afternoons on Global Television for almost ten years afterwards! Sadly, this great animated series hasn't resurfaced in almost twenty years. If it came out on video, I would buy it in a minute. If they released it on DVD, I would actually buy a player just to see this!

Long before the irritating "Simpsons", this cartoon show featured a dysfunctional family ala early 70's, when everyone was feeling the ripples of the 60's liberation and counter-culture. The last time I saw this I was 15, yet even then I was surprised at this animated program's frank references to drugs and sex. Daughter Alice is the early 70's liberated woman, and son Chet is some hippie wastoid. Plus, check out their neighbour Ralph, who's always rambling on about pinkos and yippies. I kept on waiting for him to strap on a rifle and go shoot some long-haired kids. (Was he the world's first conspiracy theorist?)

Although it was loosely based on a live-action series, in the animated world, this show was a true original. This is one program that has yet to be resurrected in the "retro" trend these days. I sure hope someone rescues this from the vault soon.
