Oh wow. I am going to have some crazy ass dreams now.

Also, making little kids do the splits on ice should not be allowed.

Wow, between this and the Star Wars Holiday Special, not nearly as awful as I was expecting, and I was pretty entertained.

Surprisingly enough, though, the animation of the Flintstones cartoon skits have´╗┐ much richer, subtler color than I remember for the Flintstones proper.

This also seems to perfectly encapsulate the "televised roasts" that were so popular then.

This is right up there with Legends of the the Superheroes, also a Hanna Barbera crapfest. [You Tube part One of Six]

Sigh.
When life was orange crush and fruity pebbles.
Chewbacca and Wacky Packs.

It isn't, no. It's the Sylvers. I have no idea why I know this.

Ahh - here's the song: Disco Showdown. Mediocrity at its most mediocre.

They perfected crap in 1977.

Oh my god. Between this and Legends of the Superheroes... and the Star Wars Holiday Special... the Brady Bunch Variety Hour... oh my god.

The idea of B-list celebs roasting cartoon character suits while overlooking a court of scantily-clad ice dancers with bunny tails twirling and prancing. I can't help but think this special cost more to produce than any of the cartoon shows featured, some of which only having 16 episodes.

Legends of the Superheroes looks surprisingly a lot like the animated DC universe... except based off the old Batman T.V. show... and with comedy sketches... and sucks.

This is like a black hole of fail. How did we survive the 70s?


Oh my god.

Wow~ that was a blast from the past. I remember watching the cartoons, but never saw the ice show. Kinda funny! :-)

Speaking as a former "Disney on Ice" showgirl circa 1991 (and Baby Huey, and Mickey Mouse's understudy) I approve of this posting.

There is something kind of disturbing about a person dressed in a big plush person costume. Especially when the top part of the head is made out of shiny plastic.

Disco Showdown. Mediocrity at its most mediocre.

Mediocrity at its best, you mean. Seriously, that's some grade-A grade-B disco.

Sent to my daughter who is skating in an international ice show. Thank you so much for a great find!
