I wasn't sure which list this belongs on. Salvage 1. Andy Griffith runs a junk yard and builds a rocket made from garbage. The bad guys react in frozen mortal terror at the sight of a trash rocket chasing them down. Quark was another trash related show featuring space travel. And Richard Benjamin.

Two outer space androids from A.D. 2369 on the children's Saturday morning sci-fi program THE LOST SAUCER/ABC/1975-76. Ruth "Laugh-In" Buzzy and Jim "Gomer Pyle" Nabors teamed up in this live-action adventure about two androids, Fi and Fum from planet ZR-3 who got caught in a time warp that transported them to Earth of 1975. The plot thickens when a young boy Jerry, (Jarrod Johnson) and his baby-sitter, Alice (Alice Playton) became reluctant time travelers onboard their craft. The series followed the attempts of Fi and Fum to return the youngsters to Earth.

Small Wonder was a sci-fi sitcom about a family who has a robot daughter. Ted Lawson, an engineer at a huge
robotics firm, brings home a project that he is working on: a robot in the shape of a 10-year-old girl. The robot was a
Voice Input Child Indenticant, but was nicknamed Vicki for short. Not only did she brighten up Ted's wife Joan, but also
was a great sister to their only child Jamie Lawson. They tried to keep the fact that Vicki was a robot from the entire world,
but found it difficult when their neighbors, The Brindles, started snooping around the house. What the bad part was, Brandon
Brindle, the head of the Brindle family, was Ted's boss and he does his best to lie, cheat and steal to get him further up the
ladder. His wife, Bonnie, was no better than he was, and his bratty daughter Harriet had a killer crush on Jamie.

Jamie, however, would rather play with Reggie, his best friend and confidant than to have Harriet chase him everywhere.
Jamie also tried to teach Vicki how to be a normal kid, but all she could do is mimic people and do things literally. Vicki
also had an evil side to her named Vanessa, who was smart-mouthed, conniving and treacherous at times. But other than that,
the Lawsons enjoyed four years of living with a robot and no one outside the family was ever the wiser, not even the ever-nosy

“Gloria”- What was CBS thinking when they gave Sally Struthers her own “All In The Family” spin-off?

“Electric Woman and Dyna-Girl”- Whatever Sid and Marty Kroft were smoking when they did “HR Puff n’Stuff” and “Lidsville”, they had run out of it by the time they did this crapfest

“Shields and Yarnell Show”- A variety show starring 2 mimes. They wouldn’t even have liked this thing in France.

"She's The Sherrif"- Even Suzanne Summers' tight cop uniform couldn't stop this thing from stinking bad.

'Holmes and Yo-Yo' ran Saturday nights from 8:00 - 8:30, the series followed the mis-adventures of two New York City (?) police detectives. Unknown to almost everyone, one of the partners happens to be a super-sophisticated robot.

Never was there a more mis-cast robot in television history. John Shuck ('McMillan and Wife') plays Gregory "Yo-Yo" Yoyonovich, 427 pounds of police department relay circuits and armor. He looked more like 320 pounds of doughnut-eating actor. Richard B. Schull plays his partner on the force Detective Alexander Holmes. Bruce Kirby played Capt. Harry Sedford and Andrea Howard was Officer Maxine Moon, the girl who swooned after Yo-Yo, never suspecting his secret.

Yo-Yo had the power to eat anything, he had a built-in trash compactor that could absorb the shock of a bomb. He had a photographic memory, an independent power source and could print out color proofs. Just what you look for in an assistant today. But Yo-Yo was constantly malfunctioning - a bullet causes him to break out dancing, magnets fly out at him, he picks up radio signals from Sweden, and when his circuits blow he repeats "Bunco Squad, Bunco Squad, Bunco Squad" over and over.

Holmes and Yo-Yo was conceived as a comedy version of the highly successful 'Six Million Dollar Man/Woman/Boy/Dog' franchise that ABC had going at the time.

If the show reminded you of 'Get Smart', it's because they shared the same producers - Leonard Stern was executive producer and Arne Sultan was producer.

Most of the jokes on 'Holmes and Yo-Yo' were 'Get Smart' throw-aways: "Whyn'tcha try a bite of my blue plate?" Holmes asks Yo-Yo. Yo-Yo eats the plate.

To contrast the stupid jokes, the crimes were treated more 'realistically' to add an air of danger. But the real danger proved to be on the other channels - 'Holmes and Yo-Yo' lasted only three months opposite 'The Jeffersons' and 'Emergency', two gigantic hits in 1976

Pink Lady and Jeff- Despite the hot Japanese girls who spoke very little English (Pink Lady), Jeff Altman is nothing if he can't do his "I'll flip you like a cheese omelet" schtick.

Ghost and Mrs. Muir- Despite the spooky title, it was sooooo boring. That show was enough to actually make me get off the couch and go outside to play.

Most spin offs are guarenteed shit. What was the name of that one spin off from 3's Company w/ John Ritter (Jack Tripper) after he moves out and open's Jack's Bistro? What about Joanie Loves Chachi, or Flo. Also I'm surprised no one has mentioned the Larwence Welk Show. Or do you guys have a place in your heart for ol' Larry?
Posted: Apr 4, 2006 4:49 am

My wife started watching it as a joke and then got really into it. I had flash-backs of being a kid at my Grandma'a house again, "Shut up! Larwence Welt is on..." We stopped at "Mr. W's" on out way to San Diego. It's a resort that he built with a museum about him and giftshop... the whole works! I did enjoy his Halloween Special. The "Phantom of the Organ" played "Satan takes a Holiday" while dancing girls dressed like witches and black cats did their thing in a giant spider web. It was totally Satanic and Family fun at the same time... I have a huge collection of Organ LPs and The Three Suns 78s so it's not THAT much of a stretch..
