It seems like this "Games" week wasn't in the modern regular rotation. I wonder why. Maybe it was too similar to another week where the theme was something about games. I can't remember the exact title, but they had Chuck Aber as Randy S. Caribou, and they had the "man, woman, boy, girl...reindeer, tiger team." I can't think of anything from this week that would be controversial like the "Conflict" week. Was it too dated? Any thoughts?
Drew -- This should have been in the regular modern rotation. The copies of this week's episodes that I have were recorded around 2007 or so.
Oh, I stand corrected. I wonder why I don't remember seeing it as an adult. Oh well, it's an interesting week of episodes, and I'm looking forward to reading more about them.
This is a great week of Programs Tim I just read both this and 1512 and to think that the real summer olympics set in London in 2012 are coming the year after next and Drew the week you are thinking of is the Fun and Games week from 1989 which was the last week of Programs that Dr Margaret B McFarland help with in 1988 she was in the credits for the week of Love 1661 to 1665 in 1993
I can confirm that this week was shown in recent years, I'll also agree with Drew, that it wasn't one I ever really saw growing up. Maybe an episode or two, but I don't really remember it. What struck me as an adult seeing it was the episode coming up where they visit the robot factory. I told my friend "Mr. Rogers went to see a factory where they were ripping off R2D2!". Most likely R2 was modeled after the robots shown. Anyway that's still to come.
This weeks episodes aired in 1983 just a year before the Olympic Games,am I right?
Exactly right. And if you remember, the 1984 summer olympics were in Los Angeles and the United States was olympic-crazy for about 18 months prior to the games.
