A year after earning Olympic gold, gymnast Mary Lou Retton joined ABC's Saturday morning lineup in a series of 5 minute segments airing twice each week.
Unfortunately, viewers may have gotten a little tired of Ms. Retton by then, as her cherubic face was on the cover of Wheaties cereal boxes, and had been on a number of magazine covers post-Olympics. For that reason, the ABC Fun Fit series died a quick death, cancelled after 3 months.
Perhaps the network might've been better off if they struck a deal with Hanna-Barbera and had Mary Lou interact with Scooby-Doo. Then again, ol' Scoob was on his last legs with the network at that time, too.
