When I was a kid my brother and I would get up Saturday morning at 4:30 a.m. and just watch the color bars on TV until at 5:00 a.m. the morning Farm Report would come on, and then after that “That’s Cat,” which was this kind of super weak show that would always try to confuse you. It had a character named “Me” on the show and the main character Alice would show you a photo that had her and the character “Me” both in the photo. Then Alice would ask, can you find “Me” in this picture. Half the time if you guessed the character “Me” you got it right, but the other half of the time you got it wrong because they would highlight Alice herself. People shouldn’t be allowed to screw with kids that way. “That’s Cat” was always off doing tours of cookie factories and things like that in between these confusing music and “can you find me in this picture” type of stuff.

Then after the lame Farm Report and That’s Cat, the real fun started. We could only get NBC (and poor quality at that) up in the mountains where we lived, but all the morning shows were so great. Sigmund the Sea Monster, Run Joe Run, Land of the Lost, Isis and Shazam.

A few years back on a Sigmund the Sea Monster marathon on TVLand I was super bummed because even though I TiVo’d them all they didn’t start with the song that had stuck in my head for the past 30 years. So just imagine my delight when I found the Sigmund the Sea Monster Season Two Theme on YouTube.

    Ahhhh, man, that’s a trip back in time. Thanks!

    I’d like to see an episode (well, maybe not an entire episode, but at least the intro song) of Run, Joe, Run. Somehow, that had more power than any of the other man-on-the-run-helping-people-in-his-spare-time shows (except maybe for Kung Fu)…

    You’re absolutely right about That’s Cat. It was never, well, Cat.

    HOly cow- Billy Barty played Sigmund?

  5. I didn’t really care for “Sigmund The Sea Monster,” but I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED “That’s Cat!” I used to watch it all the time as a child. I so miss it. It sure beat the heck out of such children’s shows as “Saved By The Bell” and “Bratz.”
