A Conversation for Cartoons

Super Chicken

Post 1


there seems to be a trend today of cartoons going over the heads of their target audiences. a good example of this is "George of the Jungle". GOTJ is my favorite cartoon of all time, not because of george himself, but because of the little Super Chicken shorts.
a famous line is:
Fred the Lion: "I sure wish I had Super Vision!"
Super Chicken: "well, I try to do the best i can for you, Fred."

someone please tell me the name of the other 70's cartoon show with little shorts in-between (ala Roger Ramjet...)

At last, another Super Chicken fan! I have warm memories of watching this on Saturday morning as a wee tad. Who can possibly forget the lyrics to the theme music, worthy of a Cole Porter or an Ira Gershwin:

"When you find yourself in danger
When you're threatened by a stranger
When it looks like you will take a licking
There is one thing you should learn
When there's no one else to turn to...
Call.....for Superchicken

Fred, if you're afraid you'll have to overlook it.
Besides, you knew the job was dangerous when you took it

He will drink his super-sauce
And throw the bad guys for a loss
And he will bring them in alive and kicking
There is one you should learn
When there's no one else to turn to...
Call.....for Superchicken
Cluck cluck!!!!

I seem to remember that Superchicken spent a lot of time reading "Playchick" when he wasn't hitting the bottle of supersauce.
