BILLY JO/ No JIVE No color

I know this Throwback deserves more color than what I've posted, but the truth is I'm on a deadline. I will have to go back over it and do it some justice later. Just wanted to make sure I had something for this Thursdays post. Billy Jo Jive and Smart Suzy Sunset was one of my favorite segments on Sesame Street. I believe they only produced 3 episodes, "WRONG WAY WILLIE" ,"BAD NEWS BARTON" and "HAUNTED HOUSE"
There's also a really cool article about Ray Favata online. He's the guy who animated Billy Jo Jive, and then some. Click HERE for the article.

Throwback Thursdays returns (for now)

Welcome to the Gleek club. Gleek was a blue "space monkey" and the pet of Zan and Jayna, the Wonder Twins. Gleek was often used as comic relief for the animated series Super Friends. Gleek was also known for his bizarre space monkey gibberish.
