Too bad Filmation did not produce another season; it was finding its way near the end of its limited run.

And anybody else remember The Sixth Sense with Gary Collins? As I recall, he played a parapsychologist who investigated strange events.
I remember that. And it's triggering a half-remembered memory that it was syndicated as part of another series. I can't quite remember....
The Sixth Sense did not have enough episodes to meet syndication requirements (only 25 were produced), so it was tacked on to the badly edited syndicated package for the great Rod Serling's Night Gallery. Rod Serling (after divorcing himself from NG/Universal due to too many internal struggles), was paid a hefty sum to return & shoot more Night Gallery-esque intros with paintings based on The Sixth Sense episodes.

This manuver convinced a couple of generations to follow that the largely inferior Gary Collins series was a part of NG--leading to the impression that NS had a pile of crap episodes in its "fourth" season.
Oh, yeah, now I'm remembering Serling doing the introductions. Very interesting.

Not sure what that could be. There was one pilot made for an LiS cartoon, but only one.

The artist has admitted he knew that, but couldn't resist including Ralph.

Re: Sci-Fi TV Shows that you're pretty sure only you watched.

A show that made a big impression on me when I was a kid was Otherworld which ran for eight episodes during the winter/early spring of 1985. It was about a family that got transported through the Great Pyramid into what seemed to be a parallel universe. They end up as fugitives on the run on a strange and dangerous world which is divided up into dozens of different zones - each with different forms of government and ways of life.

I watched the first episode of Heroic Age a few months back and really enjoyed it.
I blind bought it a year or two ago and ended up being quite impressed with it, but I also wondered how the hell it passed under my radar since I usually jump on anything sci-fi when it comes to anime.

I might have to keep an eye out and see if it ever comes to the US. The cast is enough to get me to at least give it a try.

A short trailer to give an impression of the first episode:

Remember that it's an anthology series, made up of separate stories that are only tied together by the appearance of that last fragment of a world that was destroyed long ago (sometimes as mere decoration, sometimes as a plot device).

Re: Sci-Fi TV Shows that you're pretty sure only you watched.

Well, I was going to say "The Questor Tapes" but Christopher mentioned it already.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xlMyg5_zmyA


Then I was going to say. Space 1999... but alas...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8WZW4groJro



So now I guess I'll mention "Manimal". (Is that considered scifi or just fantasy?)

and more recently... "Odyssey 5".

While we're at it:

Genesis II (1973)

Strange New World (1975)

Spectre (1977)

But I'm pretty sure not only I have watched those... as a matter of fact I've made sure not only I watched those
