Ah, the mixed messages of children's entertainment.

Fred apparently has access to a time machine but still turned up late. I wonder how many other franchises got the variety show treatment in the 70s. We need a wiki for this.

Whenever I feel like American television can't blow harder than it does now, it helps to look at the old variety show schlock networks used to excrete. The "we're in the money" dance routine was pretty classy though.

Fred Flinstone was the big closer? Fail.

I've actaully got a video of my dad and I at Hanna Barbera Land in 1984. They blue screened you into a video with Scooby-Doo.

If I ever needed to explain the 1970's to a person who wasn't there, I would show them this.

Why is that one guy with the banjo in all of these specials?

This was my childhood.

@Trish- That was Roy Clark of Hee Haw fame (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roy_Clark). Accomplished guitarist, unfortunately here playing second fiddle to best forgotten HB characters.

And let's not forget a time when Bonnie Franklin was considered an entertainer. If you can call that song entertaining.

I imagine hell being a lot like this.

And it just goes on and on, even when you try to sleep they just skate and sing around you.

When I first heard about everythingisterrible, I assumed it would be nothing more than a bunch of Hanna-Barbera cartoons. They brought Terrible into the mainstream ages ago.

Yep, looks like every furry con I've been to.

Maybe not as much disco. Happy to see the Hair Bear Bunch in here :D

This is one of those it is so bad that it is good. I would like to view this in its entirety. This would be great to watch on a Vicodin/wine buzz.

I cringed through the entire thing.. as a child born in the eighties, this made me appreciate the 90's cartoons I grew up with.

Yuck. There's just something about full-on 70s that always seems so smarmy and depressing, like the foul stench of breath through a grinning mouth of rotten, slimy teeth.

That was so bad I think it actually killed me. I'm checking my pulse right now and not getting anything. Yup. Dead.

I can imagine those chicks in the hot pants were probably responsible for some first time boners

Not as creepy as the Ice Capades with Disney Characters in the 1950's! Dear golly - they make even Mr. Yuk look like a nicer one to greet!

I stopped at the "We're in the Money" girls shaking their moneymakers. So painful.
