Based on the absurdly popular HBO series and its ghoulish host, CBS aired the kids game show Secrets of the Cryptkeeper’s Haunted House for one season starting in Fall 1996 with John Kassir back to voice The Cryptkeeper and provide color commentary.
Running for one season in 1997, Mummies Alive! followed a team of ancient warriors who come back from the dead in modern times to protect the reincarnation of a young Egyptian prince from an evil sorcerer looking to kill him and drain his lifeforce for immortality.
Very loosely based on the classic Namco/Atari arcade racing game, Pole Position hit Saturday mornings in 1984 and followed the Darrett siblings, stunt show performers who were also secretly government agents using their highly advanced vehicles to fight crime.
Debuting in 1988 from animation factory DIC, C.O.P.S (Central Organization of Police Specialists) followed the titular group of heroic law enforcement agents, led by the badass Bulletproof Vess, as they battled the criminal organization of crime-lord Big Boss.
Taking it’s inspiration from Pee-Wee’s Playhouse and Weird Al’s own brand of humor that we saw in things like the classic comedy UHF, The Weird Al Show aired on CBS in 1997 for one season as Al learned life lessons, watched fake TV shows and interacted with an insane group of guest stars.
