Toons After Dark: Puff the Magic Dragon & the Incredible Mr. Nobody (1982)

Puff the Magic Dragon (Burgess Meredith) returns one final time in a 1982 primetime special, in which he meets "The Incredible Mr. Nobody".

Producers Romeo Muller & Fred Wolf may have been running out of ideas by this point. Mr. Nobody is an imaginary friend to a lonely young boy.........

In hindsight, had the ratings been stronger, perhaps CBS could've gotten a weekly series out of this, although I am not sure if they could've gotten Meredith, whose only Saturday morning experience was as the narrator of the short-lived ABC series, Korg: 70,000 B. C. (1974-5) to commit to a series.

No rating.
