The following is a list of episodes for Super Dave: Daredevil for Hire. The show premiered on September 9, 1992 on Fox Kids. Unfortunately, most of the show’s airdates are unknown. One episode was first aired on January 2, 1993.

After its first (and only) season, the show was put on hiatus by Fox Kids so the producers could retool the series. The second season, had it been made, was to be educational (E/I). In the end, only one additional episode was produced, titled “The Super Dave Superbowl of Knowledge”. It was aired as a special. Said episode also referenced the (failed) retooling effort.

Fox Hunts Dinosaurs Network TV

Aug 5, 1996

-By Eric Schmuckle

Preparing to make a big splash in children’s television, DreamWorks SKG is developing an animated series based on Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park. No deal has been signed, but the studio is believed to be far along in discussions for the show with the Fox Children’s Network, the top-ranked network on Saturday mornings. The cartoon version of Jurassic Park is targeted for 1998.
Gary Krisel, head of children’s television for DreamWorks, declined to comment. Fox Children’s Network officials also refused to comment, although it is well known that FCN president Margaret Loesch has long wanted to bring the property to television.
It is not clear whether DreamWorks will launch the show as a weekly or a Monday-through-Friday strip, but Fox offers the opportunity to go either way.
DreamWorks is shopping the Jurassic animated series even though the original blockbuster film belongs to MCA/Universal. Universal Cartoon Studios had begun developing a Jurassic ‘toon three years ago, following the blockbuster success of the feature, but Spielberg asked the studio to hold back in anticipation of a sequel. That film, The Lost World, begins shooting this fall, and is expected to be one of the top films and licensed properties for summer 1997.
Universal was so eager to sign Spielberg to direct The Lost World that he demanded–and won–the rights to develop the animated series at DreamWorks. Now Spielberg’s fledgling outfit has a marquee property with which to launch the expensive TV animation studio it has set up. Kids TV sources speculate that MCA may well retain a financial interest in the series.
Other networks might be in the hunt for the Jurassic series as well. DreamWorks held long discussions last year with both CBS and UPN about taking over a kids program block; with last month’s departure of CBS kids vp Judy Price, there could be renewed interest at that network. But Fox offers much higher ratings, and it has aggressively sought major presold kids properties, such as Casper–exec-produced by Spielberg.

The Fox Kids Network has reformatted one of its preschooler shows to feature captions that can build reading skills. FCN president Margaret Loesch, after hearing from a teacher in the Midwest about the value of captioning in teaching the deaf to read, has decided to expand Jim Henson’s Animal Show to 30 minutes and caption it for hearing youngsters. The reformatted weekly show launches today. All 39 new episodes will be captioned. Loesch said she also plans to create a series specifically for the form, something akin to a read-along storybook show, as early as this summer.

The Fox Fast Track
Loesch Captions Kids Show in Five Days
Five days to get from idea to execution? No problem. That’s what execs at the Fox Kids Network said when president Margaret Loesch decided she wanted to reformat Jim Henson’s Animal Show and caption it to aid kids’ reading comprehension.
Loesch, who credits a letter from a viewer with giving her the spark to take on the project, told her staff April 17 that she wanted to create a spring reading program–by April 22. Execs sifted through footage from the Fox Kids Cubhouse pre-school programming looking for an appropriate segment. They settled on the 10-minute animal show because of its strong ratings and good visuals. It is hosted by two muppets, Stinky and Jake (a skunk and a dog), and features a lot of word repetition that would be easy to caption and easy for kids to understand, execs said.
Two of the segments, plus extra footage, were spliced together, and captions were added so that 188 affiliates would have the program ready to air. Within the five days, the first five weekly episodes were completed. But there’s no rest. As soon as execs returned to work last week, they got Loesch’s praise for a quick turnaround, and the assignment of tackling the next 34 episodes.

Hollywood: Laugh and Learn

Nov 18, 1996

-By Betsy Sharke

When Mary Wickes, the voice of Grandma on the Fox Saturday-morning animated hit Life With Louie, died late last year, comic Louie Anderson, whose childhood and family the series is based on, made a controversial creative decision. Anderson, who has a hand in everything on Life, from the plots to providing the voices of little Louie and his dad, wanted Grandma to die in an episode.
It’s not exactly standard fare for Saturday-morning kids TV, but it is completely in line with the bittersweet sensibility that belongs in equal measure to Anderson and to the series. That sensibility–which talks to kids about some of the harder things in life yet manages to temper the bad stuff with Anderson’s droll sense of humor–has helped give Life With Louie a lock on the No. 1 spot among all animated kids programming on both weekdays and Saturday mornings. The series holds the No. 2 spot (to Goosebumps) among all children’s programming, live and animated, on Fox’s powerful Saturday-morning block.
Anderson and coproducers Matthew O’Callaghan (who initially collaborated with Anderson in creating the show) and Alex Taub’s deft touch with sensitive issues earned them a Humanitas Award for an episode during Life With Louie’s first season. The series is now in its second year and has a commitment from Fox that will take it through five seasons in all. Life With Louie, which airs at 10:30 a.m., opened the November sweeps with a 6.3 rating/26 share among kids 2-11 on Nov. 2, just a hair behind Goosebumps, which earned a 6.7 rating/26 share.
At its core, Life With Louie is a close look at the sometimes bleak realities of a kid’s world. When Louie wants a dog, he gets a goldfish instead. He suffers through his best friend, Jeannie, moving away. He’s constantly at the mercy of the neighborhood bully, Glen Glen. All these stories are drawn from real life; though there are bits and pieces of Taub’s and O’Callaghan’s experiences mixed in, most of the moments are ones Anderson lived through as a child.
Anderson grew up in Minneapolis among the youngest in a family of 10 children. Money, and his father’s patience, were equally tight. Anderson’s troubled childhood has long been fodder for his stand-up act as well as the subject of two books, Dear Dad–Letters From an Adult Child and Goodbye Jumbo, Hello Cruel World.
‘I get to recreate my childhood and make it happier and have it make sense,’ Anderson says of his Fox series. ‘And I try to get these parents to answer all the questions I had.’
So when Mary Wickes passed away, it was only natural that Anderson would choose to deal with it in the show. ‘The fact is that we lose people in our families, and we have to deal with that loss and we don’t have to be afraid of it,’ says Anderson, explaining how he came to believe that Wickes’ death was a story that Life had to tell. ‘I felt it was unfair to Mary to replace her voice–to me, it was no coincidence that she had found our (series) family. I felt we should do it, and I fought very hard for it. Then I had to figure out how to make it funny.’
The episode, which will air during the February sweeps, finds Louie dealing with the fact that he owed Grandma a thank-you note when she passed away. That sends him on a search of various religions to figure out where he should send the note now that Grandma is gone.
Anderson’s success with Life has led him to develop two other animated series. One, featuring the comic Carrot Top, is close to a deal that may get the series on a major network by next fall. Anderson also is talking to Whoopi Goldberg and Tracy Chapman, among others, about creating a series around the life of a young girl growing up in difficult circumstances and how she copes.
Anderson’s growing involvement in animation is ironic, given that the comedian resisted the prospect of an animated show for years. The idea for Life With Louie began with Margaret Loesch, chairman and ceo of Fox Kids Networks, when she caught Anderson doing his stand-up act on an HBO special.
‘As Louie was talking about his family, I started watching and laughing,’ Loesch recalls. ‘Here was this young, rotund man, who was so droll, and with that gap-tooth and hair, I just saw him as an animated character.’
Loesch contacted Anderson’s agent but was told that the comic wasn’t interested–he wanted to write books. Loesch came back two years later, but Anderson had another book project in the works and was doing movies. Also intervening was a prime-time comedy series starring Anderson, The Louie Show, which had a short run on CBS early this year as a midseason replacement on Wednesdays at 8:30 p.m.
‘When Margaret said, ‘I want to do a cartoon with you,’ I told her, ‘I don’t want to do cartoons,” Anderson says. ‘I didn’t get it. I was never a cartoon fanatic as a kid. I didn’t like superheroes, though I did like Top Cat. But I didn’t need that kind of outlet as a kid–I had the cartoon going on in my home.’
Finally, Hyperion Animation Co. (Brave Little Toaster, Bebe’s Kids) took one of Anderson’s stand-up tapes, animated it and showed it to him, along with another pitch for an animated special. ‘I laughed, and for me to laugh at my own stuff is tough,’ Anderson says. The tape evolved into a prime-time special, A Christmas Surprise for Mrs. Stillman, which aired last season and will be repeated on Fox this holiday season. The special led to the series.
‘We tell the story of what happens in a family when the door closes,’ says Anderson. ‘I try to look at the things that were hard for me as a kid, and what’s funny in that. I love the Christmas showChristmas was one of the most difficult times of the year for me. We were poor and my dad drank. To be able to remove the alcoholism and the abuse and create a happier holiday (with the special) becomes a form of therapy. The best thing about the series is I get to be with my mom and dad again. They’re both deceased, but every week I get to visit them through the show. It’s a lot of closure and healing for me.’
On Life, Anderson has created an imperfect family, with flawed parents. But underneath all that is the message that Anderson presses again and again–that you should love and care about your family despite the difficulties. ‘Kids are not dumb, and a lot of kids have that dad and that mom that aren’t perfect,’ he says. ‘I think kids want to know that they can survive it.’
That said, with the exception of Loesch and Anderson, no one thought Life With Louie would work as a network series. Once the show made the Fox Saturday-morning schedule, no one at the network thought it would survive, much less go on to become television’s top new animated show last season.
‘Most of my colleagues were skeptical,’ Loesch remembers. ‘They thought it was too much of a downer, and that the kind of humor and the droll nature and the sophistication of the stories would not be attractive to kids. I thought otherwise.
‘To tell you the truth, I always thought (Life With Louie) would connect until right before it went on the air,’ the FKN chief says. ‘So many people had told me I had made a mistake–‘This is a loser, you spent too much money, there’s no action, it’s not for kids’–that I started to doubt myself. I became very worried for a few weeks, and then it started to gain momentum and it’s continuing to grow.’
Loesch believed that Life With Louie’s clear difference in tone from its Saturday-morning competitors would make it click. ‘The canvas I’m trying to paint is that children want and deserve as much diversity in entertainment as we adults like,’ says Loesch. ‘We have action-adventure with Power Rangers and Spiderman, traditional animated comedy with The Tick and Casper, suspense with Goosebumps. This was yet another turn, an area we didn’t have. This show is real–we’re dealing with real issues through humor and love and real conflict, but not in an angry fashion. I thought it rounded out the landscape for us.’
Once he committed to doing Life With Louie, Anderson became convinced that the series would be popular with kids, even though it is about relationships and is a story-driven half hour without violence or action. ‘I believed in the show because I thought it was brand-new and it made you laugh and it made you think,’ he says. ‘Everybody always embraces that. And it’s about love and understanding, that everyone is worth something.’
The show’s success has spawned Life lunchboxes, tie-ins with Taco Bell and, in the works, a line of Schwinn bicycles. Though Anderson has always hoped that the show connects with adults as much as it does with kids, there have been some surprises along the way. ‘I got a letter from this woman who said, ‘Even though you paint this picture of your dad where he’s mean, it’s always evident that you really loved your dad,” says Anderson. ‘She said, ‘My sons and I watch your show–their dad died two years ago–and we talk about what it was like and what it would have been like.’ That’s what you’re striving for.’
Then there was the guy in his early ’20s, covered with tattoos and riding a skateboard, who zoomed up and confronted Anderson recently. ‘He says to me, ‘Hey man, that f—— cartoon is great,” says Anderson. ‘It was very funny. If that kid is getting something out of the cartoon, how great is that? You never know who you’re affecting.’

32 10/26/96 Tick vs. Filth
33 11/02/96 Tick vs. Europe
34 11/09/96 Tick vs. Science
35 11/16/96 Tick vs. Prehistory
36 11/24/96 Tick vs. Education [aired on Comedy Central]

It is possible that “Tick vs. Prehistory” premiered on CC, but I don’t know for sure. Another episode, “Tick vs. Filth” was scheduled to air on 10/20/96 on CC, but according to an old Usenet post, CC aired it the day after it premiered on Fox.

RE: FCN SATURDAY LINE-UP CHANGES STARTING MAY 3RD

WE WON THE FIRST SATURDAY OF THE SWEEPS, BUT WE BELIEVE WITH A SCHEDULE SHIFT, WE CAN FURTHER IMPROVE OUR RATINGS PERFORMANCE.

PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT BEGINNING SATURDAY, MAY 3, THE FCN LINE-UP WILL CHANGE. WE BELIEVE THE SATURDAY SCHEDULE SHIFT WILL HAVE A SIGNIFICANTLY POSITIVE RATINGS IMPACT FOR FCN DURING THIS IMPORTANT MAY SWEEPS PERIOD.

THE CHANGES INCLUDE:

1) KEEPING THE POWER RANGERS TURBO ON SATURDAYS. TURBO GAVE A HEALTHY BOOST TO OUR NUMBERS FOR THE FIRST SATURDAY OF THE SWEEP AND SUGGESTS A RATINGS WINNER THROUGHOUT THE SWEEP.

2) TAKING THE TICK OFF AND PUTTING X-MEN BACK IN THE 11:30 AM SLOT. X-MEN HAS PROVEN TO PULL BETTER NUMBERS IN ITS HOME TIME SLOT OF 11:30 AM. THE TICK’S NUMBERS INDICATE A DOWNWARD TREND THAT IS TOO RISKY DURING A SWEEPS PERIOD.

3) MOVING SPIDER-MAN TO 9:30 AM WHERE IT IS A PROVEN WINNER AND WILL NICELY COMPLIMENT ITS TURBO LEAD-IN.

AS A RECAP, HERE IS THE NEW SATURDAY LINE-UP BEGINNING SATURDAY, MAY 3RD:

8:00 AM C-BEAR & JAMAL
8:30 AM CASPER
9:00 AM POWER RANGERS TURBO
9:30 AM SPIDER-MAN
10:00 AM GOOSEBUMPS
10:30 AM EERIE, INDIANA
11:00 AM LIFE WITH LOUIE
11:30 AM X-MEN

IN ADDITION, SINCE WE ONLY HAVE A LIMITED NUMBER OF TURBO EPISODES, WE WILL BE FEATURING POWER RANGERS CLASSICS EVERY FRIDAY BEGINNING 5/9/97. THEREFORE, TURBO WILL RUN MONDAY THRU THURSDAY AND SATURDAY ONLY BEGINNING 5/5/97.

WE APOLOGIZE FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE THIS MAY CAUSE.
