ABC After School Specials:

You just know the guy in front of that chick's up to no good. Probably been smokin' alot of that wacky weed. Judging by the pic, I guess she was letting him cheat off her test paper, and got busted. Well, I hope he was worth it, although I seriously doubt it.. you can just tell he's "the wrong crowd".
Btw, does the class monitor in the back look like Gabe Kaplan?? Is it just me????????

Yeah, I remember these. I loved them! Why can't we have good wholesome entertainment with a message like this for our kids today?

joe said...

Yes, like "don't fall for under-achieving potheads"..

joe said...

... "or you'll flunk geometry"...

Kim said...

My favorite one was called something like "My Dad lives in a hotel downtown." I always watched these, because they made my life seem utterly normal.

I watched so many of these things when I was growing up.

You mean they weren't 'HOW TO' manuals? Opps...I was deceived?

joe said...

Kim: Don't think I saw that one. Maybe dad was an alcoholic.
Or a pothead..

Keith: Me too, although I don't remember too many of them.

Cal: Sorry, my friend, not how-to manuals..

I thought the same thing even before I read your blog, it looks just like him.

joe said...

Maybe it's the mustache. I wonder if he tells really lame jokes about fictional relatives like Mr. Kotter did, as well..

I don't know about the kid but the teacher is giving that girl the look of "here's how you can get an A in my class if your a fox and you are a foxy mama, dig"

Hairball said...

I thought I heard something about some of these old specials being released on DVDs.

joe said...

Goggles: If so, I wonder if she took him up on it.

Hairball: I wouldn't be surprised. Everything eventually does.

One of the pay channels ran a few of these back in the late 1980s.

I was lucky enough to record "Blind Sunday" on an old VHS tape (4 hour mode).

I'll have to see if I still have it.
I probably do . .

I keep EVERYTHING.
