I can remember coming down stairs early on Saturday mornings, like 6:30 or 7:00. The really cool shows did not start until about 8:00am. I'd flip on the tv and maybe entertain myself for a whiel with my Shogun Warrriors robots or Stretch Armstrong. Then all the best shows would start coming on right around the time my stomach would start growling. By about the third bowl of Rice Krispies or Corn Flakes (with 3 heaping teaspoons of sugar sludge at the bottom of the bowl), Kanuki would come on. I found this old NOH TV ad in the back of an old ROM the Spaceknight issue in one of my long boxes in storage and it really took me back. By about the 20 minute mark of the show each week after the fourth or fifth severed limb or rolling head, and before the song she always sang prior to the sign-off, my brother and I would be pummeling each other silly over the shag carpet and plaid scotch guarded sofa...oh man - memories.

So what show do you all look forward to each week?

and all apologies to Bruce Timm for the blatant rip off...

I was unfortunately marked by the Krofft live-action spectacle that was Electra Woman & Dynagirl.

As soon as I read your post that theme song went through my head...I did not escape unscathed either.

That show was the original inspiration for my first series with Oeming: Spandex Tights

The illustrious Mr. Mack (and Bendis as well) provided pin-ups for that book waaay back!

Lost Cause Productions? As in Spandex Tights?

Yes.

Does Lost Cause Productions of the Spandex Tights fame still exist as a publishing company?

Lost Cause Productions limped from 1994 to 1998, barely ever broke even, and went out of business several thousand dollars in debt.

I, too, was involved with Lost Cause Productions.

You produced an underground comix entitled Lost Cause Comics for Last Gasp.

We sold our comix to Last Gasp, but the name of our company was Lost Cause Productions. We published four underground comix's Lost Cause Comix # 1 (1976), Lost Cause Comix # 2 (1978 ), Tales of Lost Times # 1 (1979), and Lost Cause Comix # 3 (1980) all under the Lost Cause Productions name. It appears that you may have the information that I seek. We would like to publish one more comix under the Lost Cause Productions name.

I am remiss as to the original thread, my apologies. Bugs Bunny and Warner Brothers , along with Popeye shorts on the local channels ruled. Inspired me to become an independent animator.

Where did you find that online?

I'd love to post a gallery of all the covers over on the Oeming board!

And I actually married a Judy!!!

Let me take this opportunity to clear up any tension anyone may have read between the lines of this thread. Everything is cool! Lost Cause and his partner published some fantastic underground comix in the 60s, 70s and 80s! They're looking to publish again and sought to avoid any collision with me due to the fact that I also published under the name Lost Cause in the 90s. There should be no such collision, and I encourage all (that are old enough) to support the new Lost Cause Productions underground comix title as soon as its ready to see print!

Good luck guys!!! :)

This thread went in such an unexpected direction, that Tim's brilliant satire below has nearly been lost. That would be a terrible shame...


I can remember coming down stairs early on Saturday mornings, like 6:30 or 7:00. The really cool shows did not start until about 8:00am. I'd flip on the tv and maybe entertain myself for a whiel with my Shogun Warrriors robots or Stretch Armstrong. Then all the best shows would start coming on right around the time my stomach would start growling. By about the third bowl of Rice Krispies or Corn Flakes (with 3 heaping teaspoons of sugar sludge at the bottom of the bowl), Kanuki would come on. I found this old NOH TV ad in the back of an old ROM the Spaceknight issue in one of my long boxes in storage and it really took me back. By about the 20 minute mark of the show each week after the fourth or fifth severed limb or rolling head, and before the song she always sang prior to the sign-off, my brother and I would be pummeling each other silly over the shag carpet and plaid scotch guarded sofa...oh man - memories.

I would say this has been pretty entertaining actually. I found your books on Mile High Comics, they have the covers in thumbnail and in the larger versions, signed copies and even variants I think.
