Gilligan's Planet was the last cartoon series that Filmation produced for Saturday mornings; afterwards, they transitioned from Saturday Mornings to producing cartoons exclusively for syndication. In addition, it was one of the last s Saturday morning cartoons to be fitted with an adult laugh trackas the popularity of the practice had subsided. Gilligan's Planet featured all of the original actors but one; Tina Louisewho has consistently refused to participate in any Gilligan's Island -related material since the series ended, again declined to reprise her role as Ginger Grantwho again was portrayed as a platinum blonde as was the case in The New Adventures instead of Louise's red hair.

If you haven't caught it yet, television sensation Bob's Burgers is one of TV's most popular adult animated shows on television. For anyone unfamiliar with the primetime-slotted show, Bob's Burger revolves around the lives of the Belchers, a working-class family that owns a small burger restaurant in a boardwalk city. Pessimistic Bob and enthusiastic Linda Belcher do their best to balance work, family and the crazy antics that happen in their daily life while supporting their three children.
Their three-hour tour is now a three-season classic as a fearless skipper, his bumbling first mate, a millionaire, his wife, a movie star, a professor and a pretty young woman remain stranded on an uncharted desert isle. Comedy giant Don Rickles guest stars in the third season, which also features a musical version of Hamlet! TV comedy was never the same after this wonderfully wacky series.

Then there were the repeats I would see in early evening. A year or 2 later I would discover Star Trek in the same time slot- but that was definitely on Channel 11, so GI must have been Channel 5- ah, the memory! About a year later, sayI recall discovering 1 of my other all-time favorite shows- just starting up its great network tv run: The Odd Couple.
