Aired Saturday mornings, for four seasons, from October 1975 to March, 1979.
This children’s program marked the CBC’s entry into the rather competitive Saturday morning program schedule. This 90 minute show featured a cartoon, a serial and a one hour movie for kids.
The most familiar animated series within the show was The Undersea Adventures of Captain Nemo, produced by Rainbow Animation Ltd. in Toronto. It was a continuous serial featuring the story of Captain Mark Nemo and his able assistants, Christine and Robbie.
The whole series was coordinated by Nada Harcourt [1975-77] and Suzanne Garland [1977-79].
