Flopcast 499: NBC Saturday Morning 1971 – Problematic Pirates

Flopcast 499 Benita

Flopcast episode 499! Our examination of Saturday morning TV from fifty years ago continues with the NBC schedule, and it’s one of the weirdest lineups we’ve found so far. Among familiar old favorites like Woody WoodpeckerPink Panther, and Deputy Dawg, we encounter psychedelic Krofft reruns, a two-headed llama, a comeback from Mr. Wizard, an odd live action import from Australia, and not one but TWO rock bands of hippie insects. Pour yourself a giant bowl of Lucky Charms and join us. Also: Kornflake loves socks but never wears them, Letters to Cleo is back in Boston, Max Weinberg is taking requests, Kornflake used to set things on fire, Kevin used to work with a muskrat, and one of us enjoyed some pre-show martinis.
