    I was a teen by then, but I would usually check out the previews and sample new shows out of habit.

    If memory serves, this was a few years after superhero violence was out and redeeming social value was in.

    “Yogi’s Ark Lark” was an hour-long episode of “Saturday Superstar Movie”, that curious showcase of pilots and one-offs (The Banana Splits as cartoon characters, a Snoopy-free Red Baron, an animated knockoff of “Love American Style” …). It was slightly reconfigured as “Yogi’s Gang”, with the ark not really having a destination but dealing with anti-social villains of the week. They usually tried to sell the more susceptible characters on the pleasures of lying and other vices. “Lassie’s Rescue Rangers” was also launched from a “Saturday Superstar Movie.”

    “Super Friends” was likewise into pro-social messaging, with marginally less silly villains who had to learn a lesson. It originally had two teenagers and a dog for comedy relief; they were replaced by the Wonder Twins.

    All I recall of “Mission Magic” was that the Mary Poppins-like teacher was named Miss Tickle and Rick Springfield played himself.

    There was a flurry of live action shows, like “Far Out Space Nuts” and “Ghostbusters” along with all the Krofft projects.
