I watched too much TV as a child, and now when I look back I realize how messed up some of these shows were! Today we're shocked to learn Jim Henson was occasionally inspired by drug-fueled creative sessions. But a lot of what went on TV in the 1970s were thinly veiled psychedelic trips.

    New Zoo Review

    A hippo woman with gigantic nostrils, googly-eyed frogs, a geeky zoo keeper and his smoking-hot assistant.

    H.R. Pufnstuf

    Sid and Marty Krofft have never confessed to doing a lot of drugs on this one, but we're not stupid.

    Land of the Lost

    The second Sid & Marty Krofft show on our list. I may believe drugs were absent from this one only because the production value is so bad I'd expect more from stoners.

    Sigmund and the Sea Monsters

    This show was just so weird! The creatures are supposed to be cute but they're so freaky!

    Felix the Cat

    This show was almost like they grabbed a couple of art students still high on grass and told them to duplicate Warner Bros.

    Hong Kong Phooey

    The epitome of Saturday morning cartoons that rotted your brain but were sure fun. Just ignore the racist stereotypes.

    Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels

    Never mind the rampant sexism and animated teens in mini-skirts, Captain Caveman was like the Tazmanian Devil with depth and likeability.

    There was no shortage of super hero spoofs in the 1970s and arguably the most popular after "Rocky and Bulwinkle" was Underdog.It definitely had the best theme song of my list.
