Without MST3k, we might never have met Torgo. Now I serve the master.
Without Aah! Real Monsters, I would have always been afraid of the underside of my Bed. Now I know the monsters mean well.
Without Dave the Barbarian, I would have been worried about Paul Rugg for the rest of my life. Now I know he has a job!
If things went differently, That's My Bush might still be around[Poorly written? Sure. But to deny the fetus puppet is blasphemy].
And without Kablam, we might never have met Mo Willems and, eventually, his wonderful little sheep.
Yay! Another TOTPD..

Google results turn up nothing, I'd be interested in how you got that title. I'll check out the rest myself.

Edit: All your other information checks out. Thank you for that. Still looking for confirmation on that movie title. Strange title, since I don't remember Charlie Brown being in it at all.

PS: Well I found the movie. Funny that it didn't find it when I did an exact search. My thanks to you. You've solved a mystery that's been plauging me for at least 15 years. I figure I saw the movie when I was 6. Also I just figured out why it wouldn't return results in an exat search. The word 'pickup' is not included in the title.

MST3K isn't shown very often in the UK ( which is a shame), The Sci-Fi channel used to show one every Saturday at midnight before they changed to Anime.

Duckman and Futurama are also under-rated.

The Commish, I used to watch this religiously and I can't remember a single episode.

And as I said on the previous page: The PJ's!!

'Wonderfalls' -- after airing only two episopdes, FOX has pre-empted this great new show with the 'reality' series 'Forever Eden'.

Wonderfalls is a really fun show with a big heart, and I am so sick of FOX for killing every show (like Futurama) that I ever cared about on their lousy network.

There are a few shows I miss and felt were underrated.

News Radio
But I do not despair. The season 1 DVD will be out in 2010.  sigh....

Men Behaving Badly
The US version. First season with the original actors. Very underrated show. It wasn't well-written like Futurama or News Radio, but I found it extremely funny.

Does anyone remember a tv show from the early 80's (in Australia anyway) called I think "The Munch Bunch"....?

It was a cartoon that was music oriented and all I remember is that the characters used to eat or "munch" all the time....I know it makes no sense to me either....maybe my entire childhood was a dream.... confused

Close, but no cigar. The first three eps aired on three consecutive Fridays, and then the fourth on a Thursday. They moved Forever Eden to where Wonderfalls used to be. Then WF got cancelled in the new slot and replaced with "The Swan."

Don't worry, there are plenty of others who are pissed about that. Like me and Mercapto. Hell, we started a message board for the show, only to find out it was cancelled after four eps. Grr.

Here's some:

Robbery Homicide Division
Witchblade
Dragnet 2004 (with Ed O'Neil)
Hawaii
O'Hara US Tresury (A post-Fugitive David Jannsen show)
B.J. and The Bear
The Greatest American Hero
Hooperman (John Ritter show)
Hell Town (The show with Robert Blake as a priest)
Manimal


That Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor movie was called "Silver Streak".  Futurama is underrated, but not forgotten.

Ancient and/or obscure shows? Lets see...

Marine Boy 60s underwater anime complete with sonic boomerang, oxygum, white dolphin and the obligatory mermaid: camp as a field full of tents.

The Great Egg Race Lo-tech predecessor of Techno Games, Robot Wars et al. Build an eggmobile to transport your product of the avian reproductive cycle the furthest/fastest without breaking.

The Wacky Races Crazy cartoon cars with equally zany drivers: Professor Pat Pending, The Ant Hill Mob, and who could forget Penelope Pitstop (‘Heyulp! Heyyyyulp!’). Spawned the spin-offs Dastardly & Muttley and The Perils of Penelope Pitstop.

Salvage 1 Once upon a time a junkman had a dream: ‘I’m gonna build a spaceship, go to the moon, salvage all the junk that’s up there, bring it back and sell it.’ Don’t try this in your local junkyard kids...

Turtle’s Progress Small-time crook (Turtle) gets more than he bargained for when his heavy (Razor Eddie) steals a truck: it’s full of safe deposit boxes from a foiled bank raid.

In other words, it was on fox.  They're kings of show mismanagement.


Farnsworth38, I think you can find Wacky Races on DVD now.  That was a good show.

That just came out on DVD, with Flair. It is a cult favorite, which is just another way of saying that it's too brilliant for most people to appreciate.

God I hate stupid people.

Invader Zim.

I love that show! I want my own Gir.

The Venture Brothers. I know it's fairly well know, but there should have never been any question to whether or not there would be a second season. "Are you there, God? It's me, Dean" was the funniest thing I've ever seen. Even funnier than anything I've seen on Family Guy or...*gulps* Futurama.

That's My Bush. I've only seen a few episodes, but I thought they were pretty cool.

@Spawn_3005: Um... Invader Zim isn't forgotten about or underrated at all. In fact, I'd say it's overrated if it's anything.

Mission Hill and the Critic were also funny short lived cartoons related to the Simpsons and a newer inductee would be Arrested Development

Invader Zim is overrated, but That's My Bush is "pretty cool"? I never saw That's My Bush, I might be able to catch it on the interweb.

It's tough to judge what's "underrated" or "overrated", it's all opinion, and everyone (especially here) has one.

I love Invader Zim, but hey, it was cancelled after a year, it happens. I don't think a lot of people were ready for it. Especially the Nick viewers, now if that premiered on Adult Swim, it might still be on today.

Was Reno cancelled?

I loved Clone High, I thought it was a great idea.

The Hell Show - (Whatever happened to that show?)
'Aaargh! The Mr. Hell show' was excellent. Used to be one of my favourites, pretty sure it was canned.

Sheep in the Big City was another one. It was aired at the crappiest time (late afternoon) over here though. They got the demographic so wrong.

Yep, The Venture Brothers is a great show.  I don't know why it didn't do so well initially, but I think rabid fan response finally tipped AS into doing a second season.  I'm looking forward to the 1st season DVD coming out this May.
