Storyline

Originally telecast on March 24 and 31, 1984, as a two-part animated episode of the Saturday morning ABC Weekend Special anthology, "The Amazing Bunjee Venture" juxtaposes the Stone Age with the Modern Age in time-honored Hanna-Barbera tradition. Two 20th century youngsters, Andy and Karen Winsborrow, are accidentally transported back to the year 100,000,000 B.C. While dodging dinosaurs and surly cavemen, the kids find a loyal friend in the form of Bunjee, a lovable, orange-haired creature who resembles a flying elephant with suction cups for feet. Returning the courtesy, Andy and Karen bring Bunjee with them when they return to the present. Alas, Bunjee is hardly ready for modern civilization, and vice versa. Nancy Cartwright, later famous as the voice of Bart Simpson, is heard as Karen.

Thank goodness!!

I truly did think that I must have imagined this show! (I do have a pretty good imagination...) I remember watching this on an ABC weekend special when I was like 11. I remember that my sister and I played "Bunjee" for months afterward; pretending that we had found the Bunjee and that we had to make sure our parents didn't find him. (That says something about how different things are... 11 year old girls don't even watch cartoons now... that's not "cool" and they certainly don't play imagination games based on cartoons… but then again… we didn't have X-Box's back then either…) I can't remember much about the show itself, but I do remember that my sister and I enjoyed it immensely, and I also recall that there was a sequel that was on at one point that we liked just as much! To bad it isn't available on DVD. Seems like such a waste of a good cartoon for it to be gathering dust when it could possibly be inspiring the imaginations of a whole new generation of children!
