Description/Info:

At least since the mid-'60s, there has been a dubious but undeniable connection between kids' television and novelty pop songs. With the rise of the Archies in the latter part of the decade, Saturday morning TV became saturated throughout the early '70s with wacky adventures of young-ish hipsters who just happened to be able to break into super-groovy songs at any moment. Producer Ralph Small has capitalized on his self-confessed jones for Saturday morning TV with Saturday Morning Cartoon's Greatest Hits.
What makes this more than just another compilation co-optation is Small's recognition of the mind-melting nature of kids' TV, and the great liner notes. Artist prospective, show/song bios, and an essay from Small make this a truly fun collection. With minimal experimentation or revisionist arrangements, the tunes stick to their mind-numbing, ear-catching simplicity.
Of course it's guaranteed that you'll be singing along, but the faithful pairing of artists and songs makes it extra sweet. Groovy grrls Liz Phair ("The Tra La La Song"), Mary Lou Lord ("Sugar Sugar"), and Juliana Hatfield and Tanya Donnelly ("Josie and the Pussycats") spin a rainbow of sonic cotton candy. Matthew Sweet caves into his teen idol fantasies with a dreamy, safely psychedelic "Scooby-Doo Where Are You?." Sponge probes their Motor City roots via Japanamation with "Go Speed Racer Go," and several other acts seem to be channeling their childhood heroes: Butthole Surfers/"Underdog," Helmet/"Gigantor," Ramones/"Spiderman," and Sublime/"Hong Kong Phooey."
While the depth goes about as far as a Scooby Doo plot, this collection is great for parties -- or a Saturday morning hangover.

OH MY , CAN THIS BRING BACK MEMORIES , THANK YOU VERY MUCH !!!
I used to have this on casette. Loved it. Thanx, man.
Wait... You mean HR PNS was NOT merely a figment of my imagination? !Wo0oT! (Unlocks his padded cell & wriggles out of the festive "sports jacket with inter-locking white sleeves", laughing merrily) I'M FREE! I'M FREE!
Oh, man! :( About a month ago, I found a rip of the VHS rip of the video for this, but didn't download it because my hard drive was getting kind of full. Now, it's not on here anymore! :'( If anyone has it, could you PLEASE re-upload it or send it to me or something?! I'd appreciate it so much! Thanks!

oms i had this cd when it came out but like allllll good cd ex high school girlfriends steal them ty
I had a couple of copies of this CD as well when I was in middle school. I still have the same mp3 of The Murmur's version of HR Pufnstuf that I imported on my very first computer, which was nearly 10 years ago. I thought I would have to buy this a third time. I love this CD. Thank you for uploading it.
Thanks so much. Almost impossible to find this version of the Ramones doing Spider Man...and the rest of the songs are just an awesome bonus. Thanks again :)
Thanks, I had a couple of the tracks but not the whole thing.
Thank you for sharing this album. Higher quality (if available) would be very appreciated.
Thanks. I had this on cassette...
