2:30 Adventures Of Teddy Ruxpin
ahh....that late afternoon sitcom block on WTAE. Always used to enjoy it.
Wish they would go back to that as opposed to the endless stream of judge
shows and trailer-talk.
Jem? As I recall, she was truly outrageous. Truly, truly, truly outrageous.
(I don't remember why exactly...)
WNEU-63 would have just signed on around that time. Their schedule consisted of
infomercials, public domain cartoons, and a mix of very old and foreign films. They
went dark a couple of years before the digital switch (was all home shopping at the
time) and so far as I know they did not file to make the transition.
And how soon they forget Teddy Ruxpin! At the time you could not get away from
him. Our family still likes to laugh about the impassioned Christmas sermon given by
our then-Pastor using poor Teddy as the whipping boy for all of the evils of Materialism
that surround the Christmas season. ("CHRISTMAS is NOT a TALKING BEAR!!!!!)
