    I was thinking about a few things I grew up with and feel pretty lucky!

    One was Hanna-Barbera

    @Healer_Leona-- Dudley Do-Right was from the wonderfully subversive Jay Ward, who also gave us this:

    Oh, boy, do I remember this show.

    Everybody sing: "Kids are people, too!"

    I could never get my team to work right. The second we turned on the power, my players would just spin around in circles!

    Getting back to Hanna-Barbera cartoons, here's one I liked:



    Even had a Hair Bear Bunch lunchbox when I was in the first grade.
    Second grade: Partridge Family lunchbox. Somewhat humiliating.
    Third grade: King Kong lunchbox. 1976 remake, but still cool.
    Fourth grade: Snoopy and Woodstock.
    Brown bagged my lunch from fifth grade on.

    Since we're talking about Hanna-Barbera cartoons and I posted an intro to one of their space shows, I guess I got into a kick to see other intros of their space-related shows:



    (Warning: this one is pretty disco-fied in parts):

    Yogi's Space Race and Galaxy Goof-Ups, that depressed me so much.

    Remember this?



    I tried to find a good copy of Bill Murray's spoof of this from SNL, but couldn't find one.

    Educational television of the "I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing" variety:



    My favorite segment was the school where everyone got around on unicycles.

    30 years later and ABC is still looking for someone to replace Howard Cosell.

    With the A.V. Club talking the very special episode of Diff'rent Strokes where Arnold and Dudley are almost molested by the bike-shop owner played by Mr. Carlson from WKRP In Cincinnati, I thought I would bring up the topic of Very Special Episodes of 70s/80s/90s sitcoms here.

    What is it about them that makes those of us who were of an age to watch them remember them so? Was it the switch to drama on shows normally meant for comedy? Was it the "We're trying to be serious here, you guys!" tone the shows took when they did? Was it writers exceeding their grasp in topics that, while they meant well in talking about, just shouldn't have when they did, and were best left it to those more qualified? Please, let's discuss this.

    Personally, it always cheesed me off when they used them to do things to the main characters in such shows, and never brought it up again, like when Roz was diagnosed as a diabetic on Night Court, but that's probably more a case of Status Quo Is God more than anything.

    Maybe this'll get a better response:

    Classic Christmas Wishbooks!

    From the cover of the '85 Sears one, I think we now know what comedian Amy Schumer did as a child...

    I still have this. Some of the green canons are missing, but everything else is still in pretty good shape. The copter that came with it was f'd up when I got it that christmas. Not all the parts were included or something.

    I think GI JOE has to rank as probably one of the best toy lines. I mean everything you could think of that related to the military was made for this toy line. Except for maybe a destroyer battleship. They made a carrier, but I don't think they ever made a huge battleship. Maybe not a sub either.

    You know, I try not to rag on kid's toys nowadays, but that General thing up above doesn't compare to what Hasbro made for the Joe's base in Rise of Cobra:

    I mean, it's basically a giant version of that one military RV from Stripes.
