Flopcast 445: NBC Saturday Morning 1990 – Everybody’s Miserable

The Flopcast

Flopcast episode 445! Let’s wrap up our review of 1990 Saturday morning TV with a look at the bizarre lineup on NBC. We had a couple of cartoonified SCTV stars taking care of weird kids (John Candy in Camp Candy and Rick Moranis in Gravedale High), Captain N: The Game Master (with a shameless parade of Nintendo characters), movie parodies from the Chipmunks, awkward cartoon dancing from Kid ‘n Play… and the beginning of the end for Saturday morning cartoons with Saved By the Bell and The Guys Next Door. (Don’t remember The Guys Next Door? It was a Monkees-style sitcom about a New Kids-style boy band. And as a civilization, we have collectively decided to pretend it never happened.)
