The Super Saturday Short-Lived Showcase Bonus Series: Super Sunday!

As we mentioned in our introduction to Inhumanoids, the five episode pilot of that series was actually comprised of 15 seven minute shorts that aired on an anthology show initially titled Super Week, then changed to Super Sunday (Super Saturday in some markets) the following weekend. Alongside Inhumanoids, the only other series of shorts to expand into an ongoing series was the now truly outrageous cult classic Jem and the Holograms. Since Jem went on too long to qualify for this blog as a Short-Lived series, we've decided to look at the remaining pair of Super Sunday offerings which weren't able to find a life beyond their initial shorts.

Starting tomorrow, we'll be looking at Bigfoot and the Muscle Machines, yet another tale written by Inhumanoids and Visionaries mastermind Flint Dille, with its nine segments spread across three weekly installments.

Then we're onto Robotix, the 15 chapters of which we'll cover in five posts.

After that, we'll wrap things up with a final surprise before moving back to our traditional Saturday schedule. Hope you all join along and enjoy the ride!

I actually saw Robotix in its entirety last year. While it had its weaknesses, I thought it had some interesting ideas. I'm curious to see what you guys will write about it.
