The Phoenix

Quirky 1980’s television shows is the theme for “Sunday Cinema” this month. These shows lasted less than a season due to poor ratings, some concepts probably would have done better today and would have become longer series…

Bennu of the Golden Light had awoken in Peru by some archaeologists who inadvertently destroyed his mission information. Left to survive on earth, he does his best to avoid authorities who want to worship & study him while searching for his long lost love who arrived on the planet 40,000 earlier.

Cut short at 4 episodes, this premise was way ahead of its time and probably would have found a home with a streaming service today.

Someone posted the extended pilot online for all to enjoy…

2 race car drivers are hired by the LAPD to be a part of a task force commissioned to deal with auto thefts. The task force name? B.A.D. C.A.T. (Burglary Auto Detail Commercial Auto Theft). It only ran for 10 episodes but did star a young Michelle Pfeiffer.

Someone found the pilot on VHS and digitally transferred it so everyone can bask in it’s interesting glow…

The Original Max Talking Headroom Show

Quirky 1980’s television shows is the theme for “Sunday Cinema” this month. These shows lasted less than a season due to poor ratings, some concepts probably would have done better today and would have become longer series…

What first started out as a character in a British television movie, “Max Headroom: 20 Minutes into the Future” blossomed into a 2 season television show followed by a Christmas special and a late-night talk show on Cinemax.

Basically a satire of then-current late-night talk shows, Max’s biting commentary & oddball guests coupled with strange skits made the show a bit ahead of its time and it was canceled after 6 episodes.

Someone posted the first episode online for all to wonder in all its 1980’s glory…

Sunday Cinema – “Rubik the Amazing Cube”

Yet another 80’s toy cartoon, the popular puzzle game had its own cartoon show for a whole season before getting cancelled. I had no idea at the time how awkwardly ethnic this show was trying to portray. Starring Ron “Horshack” Palillo as the voice of Rubik, his “family” takes a trip down to Mexico to visit their Abuelita and has an adventure returning stolen toys before Christmas is ruined. Interesting to note that they production went so far as to have the popular Puerto Rican band Menudo record the theme song.

Sunday Cinema – “A Family Circus Christmas”

A Family Circus was a staple of newspaper cartoon pages from the 1970’s through the early 1990’s that followed Mom/Dad/Billy/Dolly/PJ through their innocent look at life and its foibles. Their Christmas special finds the kids trying to be good before Christmas, searching for the star to place on the tree, & asking Santa to bring their Grand-Dad back from Heaven.

Sunday Cinema – “A Cabbage Patch Kids Christmas”

A popular toy-related cartoon from the 1980’s, this episode follows the gang as they leave the safety of the cabbage patch and enter the big city in search of the Christmas spirit. Of course they find the big city menacing and end up sharing the Christmas spirit with all.
