Sunshine Saturday Morning

What was better than getting up and watching Saturday morning tv? Nothing. You couldn't beat the programs with a stick, even if you tried. Take a gander at this tour de force of programming - Devlin and Korg 70,000 B.C. Crazy!

First we've got a cartoon about an orphan who makes like Evel Knievel. Then we've got Korg, a time traveling brain smasher of a show, which gives us Burgess Meredith, aka The Penguin, providing narration for a family of cavemen.

I did not watch Korg very much. Let's face it, those cavemen were ugly. Yowch! Don't want to run into that in a dark alley. The neanderthal man was unpleasant to look at, and I wasn't all that keen on staring at them for a half hour. I'll bet if they had put some good looking teen idol types in caveman outfits, and kept them all neat and clean like on the Flintstones the show would have been more popular. But how are you going to grab the teenage girls when all the guys have tons of body hair, massive brows, and nasty huge teeth?
