Saturday Morning Cartoons: Lancelot Link Secret Chimp

Yes it is Saturday morning and time for the Saturday morning cartoons. Up today is one show that you either love or hate. It is Lancelot Link: Secret Chimp. Someone had the idea to take the TV show Get Smart and do it on Saturday morning with chimps in all of the roles. Growing up I hated this show. The only thing I liked was the opening credits. Lancelot sounded like a bad impersonation of Humphrey Bogart and would much rather watch the drawn cartoons. Halfway through I would always turn the channel. Still watching them in small doses brings back a smile to me. Here is Lancelot Link Secret Chimp in the Royal Foil. The first video is the great opening and the other is the story.

Dinky The Elf Out Nov. 14th

Dinky the Elf will arrive for Christmas before Santa. It is scheduled for publishing on November 14th. You can buy it on line at Morning Sun Publishing. Above is the new cover art for the book. It was changed from the previous one that was shown before.

Monkees Images

Well yesterday's post got me in a Monkees kind of mood. So here are some Monkees related images. Below is an ad for their album "Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones Ltd."
Below is a page from TV Guide from September 1968. Highlighted is the description of the latest Monkees episode. The important part of it for Monkees fans is that it also tells how it is the last episode of the series and "I Dream of Jeannie" takes over the slot next week.
I know this photo was used yesterday but I got in here by accident. Still if you are a Monkees fan you won't mind.
Below is the cover to the Monkees script for the movie "Head." As you can see it was almost called "Changes." Eventually that became one of the titles of their albums.
A Monkees Halloween costume of Davy Jones. Which also came with a Monkees photo.
I never saw this photo before so I couldn't help but post it here. A different version of the Monkees walk.

The New Monkees...Again?

Over at The Sun it is reported that Simon Fuller, the man behind such groups as the Spice Girls and S Club 7,will put together another group based on the Monkees. Click on The Sun to read the article. It tells how he plans to make it more raunchy then the original. It also gives an error filled background on the show. First they say the Monkees started out as a drama and became a reality-variety production. It was never a drama. It was always a comedy. They did try to make it a variety show but failed. They say that they starred for 5 years. The show only lasted from the fall of 1966 to spring of 1968. However, I will cut them some slack on that as the search started in 1965 and the group lasted till 1970.

I first heard of this in an alert from The Monkees Home Page.

Will this be as big a hit as the first series? Will it tank like the New Monkees did? I don't know but it will be fun to see.

For President

I found these fictional characters on e-bay who had runs for out highest office. Some were bigger then most but their companies or publicity agents threw their hats in the ring for them. Remember today is election day. So go out and place your vote.
