NBC Saturday Morning 1971

This year was somewhat dominated by live action shows and cartoon retreads and, needless to say, was a rather horrible year in NBC history - although they did call it The NEW Pink Panther Show. I guess it was technically NEW as they did add some new cartoons to the Pink Panther rotation including The Ant and the Aardvark, Inspector Clouseau, Mr. Jaws and Catfish the Hunter.

I could not find any streaming clips for the live-action BARRIER REEF and TAKE A GIANT STEP but from what I hear that is not the greatest loss to society given the shows' dismal ratings. If you know of any links to video clips please post them in the comments. Otherwise you can click here for a downloadable RM video of the opening to BARRIER REEF.
