A Conversation for Cartoons

Potsworth and Co.

I believe, indeed, sincerely believe that you have omitted possible the best cartoon that has ever been and ever will be. The early '90s saw Potsworth and Co., and they reveled in its glory.
Seriously, it was produced in 1990 and starred the vocal talents of such well known artistes as, Charlie Adler, Christine Avila, Hamilton Camp, Brian Cummings, Jim Cummings and of course, Judyann Elder.
It was about a group of children, ordinary by day, who all met up in the "dreamworld" when they went to sleep. They all had token special skills, ie anything that they drew, became real etc. The titular Potsworth was a dog who, unervingly, was able to speak fluently, when in the dream world. They 'Dream Crew' were the defenders of good, including the ruler of the dreamworld, who of course slept and couldnt be woken. The foe of these heroic youngsters was the Nightmare Prince, a shady character who tried to give all children bad dreams. Many adventures were had, a sometimes members of the crew were eliminated when they woke up, or couldn't sleep.
Perhaps, it doesnt sound so good told by an obvious fanatic, but i am but 17 years of age so you must forgive the child-like enthusiasm. I was merely wondering whether or not any of the other reasearchers watched this show?

And Introducing... A Leg

I always suspected that Potsworth and Co was just a cynical attempt to get kids to go to bed at 7.30. I'm not saying I didn't enjoy it, but it obviously had an ulterior (sp?) motive. Plus I never dreamed like that. I stayed up as long as I could. And who looked after the dreamzone when they were all awake?

Omg! I loved Potsworth and Co! But whenever I mention it to anyone else, they never seem to have heard of it, it's so frustrating. I was so excited when I saw the title of this post and realised someone else remembers it!

Remember the baddie who was so pathetic he always used to have to phone up his mum and he was always getting struck by lightning? What was his name?! Anyway, that was a great show.

When all us researchers threw ideas into the big hot melting pot of Cartoons, I'm sure I mentioned Potsworth. Along with a huge amount of other toons. But, I believe, my research wasn't detailed enough and I could only give sketchy details at best. Oh, and lots of theme tunes. Ah well, they live on in my head (and other people's too obviously).
