Unusual season; I sense a pattern here. Episode #121 appears to have broken a rule.

WHERE DID YOU GET THAT??? :excited:
TV Guide, New York Metropolitan edition. Listings for seasons 2-5 (still to come) were taken from TV Guide and the Los Angeles Times.

It wasn't in every edition of TV guide, was it?

Ok, so now we know the letters and numbers that sponsored these shows, but I wanna see some of these shows! The ones that weren't on Unpaved, and the ones that were at one time.

Probably it was in every edition of TV Guide, but only until the mid-70s.

Anyway, as I see from that, the show was actually VERY repetitive during the first season, or the first few seasons. The letters and numbers are all the same throughout the week, and as were the segments. And if you might have noticed from Unpaved, they would often air the same segment 2 or 3 times within the same show. That was how they were going to get kids to learn, but it obviously wasn't very efficient, since it only lasted like 2 seasons.
