Saturday Morning Preview – Back to Next Saturday (1985)

Last weeks post, Saturday Morning Pac Preview Party (1982), was so popular I thought I would keep the ball rolling on these Saturday Morning Preview, with the help of master video poster, dukeofcrydee. The Duke, as I like to call him, also posted the 1985 NBC Saturday Morning Preview show, which is aptly, but loosely (in name) based on the “Back to the Future” with some Wizard of Oz thrown in for good measure.

The special features Keshia Knight Pulliam (Rudy from The Cosby Show) who is read to sleep by Lisa Welchel (Blair from The Facts of Life). Keshia in her dreams meets all the stars of NBC’s Saturday Morning Shows and they need to help her escape her Dream Zone. It might actually be better than then Pac Preview Party, simply because it includes Welchel (dressed as Glinda the Good Witch) singing the now classic (and on my mp3 player) “Back to Next Saturday”.

  1. Hey good pick when I wrote about saturday morning previews I used that episode as a prime example. I loved watching them as a kid good thing we have YouTube so we can watch them over and over again.

    LOL Awesome! I really appreciate the kudos The Retroist and I’m really glad I can share whatever rare 80’s pop culture I can find with everyone. I’ve been going through The Retroist’s archives and have come across a ton of videos I forgot or haven’t seen in forever.

    Also, thanks for ripping an MP3 of that song!! I’ve been meaning to get around to it myself. Saved me the effort. :)

  3. Great site, by the way, Chris! I had fun reading through your blog. :)

    @Duke Just a big thanks to you, once again, for uploading these specials, you’ve brightened my Saturday for sure! :)
