ABC After School Specials Taught Me Everything I Need to Know
This special series of movies that ran during the week in the afternoon (ya know, after school) was on for 25 seasons from 1972-1997! It taught me everything I needed to know.
I had no idea this was on for 25 years! I just remember that Kristy McNichol starred in most of the ones I caught after school.
I learned about adoption and pot and friends...you know who else starred in a couple of these specials?
My parents loved these things. They always looked in the TV Guide and would see, 'Andrea's Story: A Hitchhiking Tragedy' and say:
I want you to watch the ABC After School Special today...it's about how never to hitchhike.
Hey...if I got to watch TV I was cool with it.
