Episode #20 - CBS Saturday Morning Preview Special (1983)

It's the 20th episode of Network Special and we are celebrating by going back to our roots! This week we are taking a ride down south to Hazard County to check out a new dance club owned and operated by 80s heartthrob Scott Baio. In 1983, CBS was excited to announce it's all new cartoon block dedicated to video games and Baio was all too happy to tell kids all about it. Also, we get a look at a reused Kroft puppet and some hijinx courtesy of Boss Hog and Rosco P. Coletrane!
