TV Series
    (September 11, 1976-September 2, 1978)
    ABC
    Created by Sid and Marty Krofft
    Hosted by Kaptain Kool and the Kongs (Michael Lembeck as Kaptain Kool, Louise DuArt as Nashville, Michael McMeel as Turkey, Debra Clinger as Superchickand Bart Sommer as Flatbush)
    Anthology of live-action segments (Dr. Shrinker, Electra Woman and Dyna Girl, Wonderbug, Magic Mongo and Bigfoot and Wildboy)
    The Kongs’ first-season segments were filmed at the ill-fated World of Sid and Marty Krofft — which later became the main Cable News Network headquarters.
    It wasn’t explained why Flatbush didn’t return for the second season.
    Only one segment – Wonderbug – appeared in both seasons.
    When it moved over to NBC in 1978 as the Krofft Superstar Hour, the Kongs were dropped, the format almost completely changed, and the Bay City Rollers came in.
    It capitalized on the glitter rock movement.
    Most of the Kongs’ songs were composed by the Osmonds.
    When the network learned that their audience was tuning in to the competition for the last half hour, they wisely chopped the show from 90 to 60 minutes.
    At least the Rollers weren’t created exclusively for the show.
    The Kongs – who really were musically trained – were able to release one song (‘And I Never Dreamed’).
    Bigfoot and Wildboy eventually became a stand-alone show (1979).
