1985 Saturday Morning Preview - Back to Next Saturday

Back in the 80s the networks would have Saturday morning preview specials to showcase the upcoming saturday morning cartoons for the upcoming season. A great way back then to get kids talking and circling times in the TV Guide.

This is a full 1985 Saturday Morning Preview titled "Back to Next Saturday". It features Keshia Knight Pulliam (Rudy from The Cosby Show), Lisa Welchel (Blair from The Facts of Life), Soleil Moon Frye (Punky Brewster), the kids from Punky Brewster, the kids from Kidd Video, & Spider-Man.

This special is done as an adventure story where Blair reads Rudy to sleep and Rudy dreams that she's trapped in the "Dream Zone". Where everyone from the Saturday Morning shows get trapped and have to get Rudy back so they can all get back. It features Blair singing the "Back to Next Saturday" song at the end, although I don't know if that's really her singing.

Shows featured are: Punky Brewster, Snorks, The Smurfs, Alvin and The Chipmunks, Gummi Bears, Kidd Video & Mr. T
