Saturtainment: Trollkins (1981)

Trollkins, from Hanna-Barbera, had the misfortune of being slotted directly opposite another of the studio's freshman entries, Smurfs. Small wonder, then, that Trollkins lasted just one season, and is a mere footnote, while the Smurfs lasted almost a full decade. Muttley16 uploaded the open, which includes an episode title card.......

Trollkins was inspired in part by the line of troll dolls, but also by the popular primetime series, The Dukes of Hazzard, which would later spawn its own Saturday morning counterpart, also on CBS, 18 months later. Currently, the series languishes in the Cartoon Network vaults.

Rating: B-.
