Episode 31: Saturday Morning Apocalypse


There was an age, long past, when children's adventure programming was resigned to three networks alone, and took place on the glorious Saturday mornings of yore.  For kids everywhere, this weekly block of cartoon action was reward enough itself.  For kids who also longed for post-apocalyptic tales, there was even more rejoicing!  Their monkey was fed by 1976's live action series Ark II (which, coincidentally, had a monkey in it) and by 1980's animated epic called Thundarr the Barbarian (not at all trying to rip off Star Wars in any way, we swear)!  Join hosts Tim Watts and Michael O'Connell as they take Post-Apodaclypse back to the era of cereal commercials, vibrant morality tales, and...well...talking monkeys.    Ookla!  Ariel!  RIDE!
