Kidd Video marks its 30th anniversary this year, and to this day, there are fans still clamoring for the series to be released on DVD. Problem is, as with DIC stablemate Wolf Rock TV, there are rights issues precluding the release of the series on DVD due to the music videos used on the show. The series had two seasons worth of episodes, airing first on NBC. After an all-rerun 3rd season, Kidd Video was cancelled, but picked up by CBS, which needed to fill a hole on their schedule.
Robbie Rist (ex-The Brady Bunch), whose last Saturday entry, Big John, Little John, was a colossal flop a decade earlier (and also on NBC), was one of the stars, and played guitar & keyboards. I think he parlayed that into another band gig or two after the series ended, I'm not sure.
Anyway, the band is thrust into a dimension ruled by a despot named Master Blaster. If the concept sounds familiar, well, DIC would copy it just 4 years later with Captain N: The Game Master, also for NBC.
Here's one of the opens. This one's for the first season.
Kidd Video was the first collaboration between DIC & Saban, and their other notable one was the game show, I'm Telling!, which would replace Kidd on NBC's schedule.
