1970s / Big John Little John - Sitcom Flop
Who recalls this sitcom dud? In the fall of 1976, NBC decided to move away from cartoons and create a sitcom for its Saturday morning audience. It was titled Big John, Little John. The show's premise was that 40-year-old middle school teacher John Martin, while vacationing in Florida, takes a small sip of water from a hidden pool--not realizing it is the fabled Fountain of Youth that Ponce de Leon once hoped to find. The effect was that 40-year-old John would unpredictably descend in age to a 12-year-old...and then return to being an adult again just as unpredictably. (According to the story, had John taken a large drink from the pool, he would have been 12 years old forever!) Herb Edelman played 40-year-old John. Robbie Rist (notorious for his role as Cousin Oliver on the Brady Bunch) played 12-year-old John. Joyce Bulifant played 'their' wife. Only 13 episodes were made. The last first-run episode aired just before Christmas 1976, but reruns were shown until September 1977. Here is the show's opening.
