Saturday Morning Cartoon

There are some weird cartoons out there. One of them was Galaxy Goof-Ups. It was Hanna-Barbera Productions attempt to cash in on the then recent Star Wars space craze. The show, which ran from 1978-1979,  had Yogi Bear, Huckleberry Hound and a couple of new characters called Scare Bear and Quack-Up. The show was originally part of Yogi’s Space Race but it ended up with it’s own half-hour spot.

The show had Yogi and his team of misfits as space patrolmen who always “goofed up” and ended up in disco clubs. That’s right -Yogi was a ’70s swinger. A space swinger.

And I thought the 1979 James Bond film Moonraker was the lamest attempt to cash in on the space craze.
