Can you find the ONE Saturday morning TV show from the 1970s that was live-action?

How many guesses did you need?

Oh, how we'd love to go back to the 1970s, if at least for Saturday mornings. Sitting on cozy shag carpeting or swallowed up in a bean bag, watching television with a huge bowl of Fruit Brute.

There were dozens of quirky, quality cartoons. In what other decade could you find a show called The Skatebirds? Of course, there were loads of strange live-action series for kids, too, filled with talking hats, sea monsters and superheroes. 

Think you can remember what was animated and what was live-action? Try to sniff out the ONE show below that was NOT a cartoon. How many guesses did it take you?

Lucky guess, never heard of it. Was in the military several years by then though and didn’t watch tv. Still don’t, download old western series and watch them in order.

Wasn't Space Academy a spin off of Jason of Star Command?

You have it backwards - Star command came after. It was explained that Star Command was based on a different part of the Space Academy asteroid. That also let them re-use the effects and models from the first show.

I was a kid who watched 'Space Academy', so I got it right. However, they should have left the Harlem Globetrotters off this list then, as they also had a live-action Saturday morning show, 'The Harlem Globetrotters Popcorn Machine'.

Unbelivable! I Knew that Space Academy was a live action, because of Filmation!

Pegged it the first try. The other two I considered for a moment were "Space Sentinels", which just didn't *sound* right, and "Mission: Magic", which I thought might possibly have been inspired by Bill Bixby's "The Magician". But "Space Academy" sounded like something they could have done live-action with young people (it was Saturday morning, after all), limited sets and controlled effects budgets.

Got it first try. I watched Jason of Star Command, Space Academy and Ark II as a kid and own all three on DVD now.

You picked the correct show!
Like Jason of Star Command and Ark II, Space Academy was a live-action science-fiction show! The 1977 series also happened to feature Jonathan Harris from Lost in Space!

I knew the answer because I had a mad crush on Ric Carrot

First shot. Process of elimination and then a lucky guess. More of a 60s cartoon guy.

I did NOT pick Fred and Barney. They weren't even on the list. I picked Emergency + 4.
