THE OTHER TELEVISION SHOWS STARRING THE WARNER BROTHERS CARTOON CHARACTERS


Written by Kevin McCorry
The Warner Brothers cartoons have been available for viewing on Saturday morning U.S. network television series other than The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Hour and The Bugs Bunny & Tweety Show. They have also been broadcast on weekdays on popular syndicated cartoon compilation television series. Below is a complete listing of every other regular television program to feature Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies.

LOONEY TUNES

In 1955, on WABD-TV in New York and KTLA-TV in Los Angeles, Warner Brothers' library of pre-1948 Looney Tunes, a cavalcade of the film studio's cartoon characters of the 1930s and early 1940s, premiered on television under the Looney Tunes television series name.

At first, the films were seen on weekdays with local personalities introducing them.

30-minute installments of this cartoon compilation television series began airing on April 11, 1955. There were 190 cartoons in the package, including those with Bosko, the Warner Brothers cartoon animation studio's first character- a diminutive, wide-eyed black figure with very little personality except a love of life; Buddy, an equally nondescript boy with a girl-friend named Cookie; and Porky Pig, Daffy Duck, and others.

Prints of each film were black-and-white, and it was not until 1969, when television stations across the United States demanded color, that Warner Brothers manufactured color prints of those early films that were originally produced in black and white. In 1960, Warner Brothers added post-1948, color Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies to its package for syndication (direct sale to individual television stations), while the ABC television network aired select post-1948 classics on The Bugs Bunny Show.

A listing of cartoons shown on this Looney Tunes television series is unavailable at this time.


THE PORKY PIG SHOW

    "Who's our favorite TV star? 
    Who comes on with a wham?
    Who's got the laughiest show by far?
    P-P-P-Porky Pig, our favorite ham! 
    Ooh, that Porky, Porky Pig!
    He's the barnyard's Mr. Big!
    When the music starts, you wanna tap your toes.
    You feel like dancin' a jig!
    Swing around in a circle, and doesy-do!
    Time to watch Porky Pig."

    "Sadly now we sing again, to each and every one.
    Gladly we'll come back,and then, we'll all have more fun!
    Watching Porky and his friends, wish it never had to end.
    Don't forget next time we meet, we're planin' something big.
    Just be sure to join us then for Porky Pig!"
Friz Freleng created Porky Pig, Warner Brothers' first major cartoon character, for "I Haven't Got a Hat" in 1935, a Merrie Melodie in which Porky was a porcine version of Chubby of the Our Gang comedies. Freleng's fellow animation directors Tex Avery, Robert Clampett, and Frank Tashlin refined Porky, giving to him a more appealing look, and Mel Blanc replaced Joe Dougherty as the provider of Porky's stuttering voice. Porky's particular speech impediment distinguished him from all other cartoon characters in the 1930s and 1940s, rendering him lovably vulnerable as the modest, put-upon hero of many cartoons pairing him with hustlers, moochers, aggressors, or troublemakers, some of whom were Daffy Duck and the pushy, master-seeking Charlie Dog. Porky's fractured statement of "That's All, Folks!" ended most of the Warner Brothers cartoons through the late 1930s and early 1940s.

Porky's cartoon presence diminished in the 1950s while most of the other Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies characters were in their prime. During this time period, he was usually a sidekick to a bumbling Daffy Duck in such Chuck Jones-directed cartoon shorts as "Drip-Along Daffy" (1951), with Daffy as a "Western-type hero" and Porky as "comedy relief", "Duck Dodgers in the 24 1/2th Century" (1953), Daffy's outing as an outer space adventurer and Porky as an "eager, young space cadet", "Deduce You Say" (1956), with Porky as "Watkins" to Daffy's "Dorlock Homes", and "Robin Hood Daffy" (1958), in which Daffy is a Robin Hood pretender and Porky a laughing Friar Tuck. Porky's other appearances through the post-1948 time period were as the blase master of a timid Sylvester Cat, while the traveling pair encounter a murderous-mouse-infested house, a haunted hotel, and an abducting buzzard from Jupiter, and Porky was also director Robert McKimson's character of choice in pairings with an annoying Daffy Duck.

From September 20, 1964 to September 2, 1967, Porky was the host of his own Saturday morning television series on the ABC network. The Porky Pig Show, thirty minutes long, featured the cartoons of Porky, Daffy, Bugs Bunny, Tweety and Sylvester, Foghorn Leghorn, and others. The opening to each Porky Pig Show installment involved Porky inviting his cartoon character friends, many of them rather bizarrely sized in cartoon animation provided by Hal Seegar Productions, assembling in a barn on Porky's farm to watch Porky's television program.

In 1971, four years after its network run, the television series was reassembled, with a different collection of cartoon shorts, and syndicated under the title, Porky Pig and His Friends.

BUNNY ET SES AMIS

In the mid-1970s, Canada's French version of the CBC, Radio-Canada, ran a series of half-hours with Warner Brothers cartoons dubbed in French. Although the title was Bunny et ses amis, Bugs only appeared with Daffy Duck in "This is it" (undubbed), lifted from the original Bugs Bunny Show (1960-2) to open each installment. Bugs' cartoons were never shown in this television series. Sylvester was the undoubted focus. Aside from an occasional Foghorn Leghorn cartoon short, the contents of every installment of Bunny et ses amis were Sylvester's cartoons with Tweety, Sylvester Jr., Hippety Hopper, Speedy Gonzales, Spike and Chester, or Elmer Fudd. The first installment consisted of "Chili Weather", "A Street Cat Named Sylvester", "Dr. Jerkyl's Hide", and "Tugboat Granny", all minus their titles. The format of the Bunny et ses amis television series was consistent with this. Each installment featured four cartoons, all with their titles removed.

THE SYLVESTER AND TWEETY SHOW

Tweety Bird was created by Warner Brothers cartoon director Robert Clampett in 1942 for "A Tale of Two Kitties", a Merrie Melodie pitting a pint-sized, loud-mouthed bird against two fallible cats patterned after Bud Abbott and Lou Costello. Clampett reused the bird in two additional cartoons, "Birdy and the Beast" (1944) and "A Gruesome Twosome" (1945), in which more unfortunate felines battle the "naked genius", who was given the voice of a toddler, a musical sense, and the name of Tweety. After Clampett departed Warner Brothers in 1947, his tiny bird became a yellow-feathered canary as Friz Freleng, senior cartoon-animation director at Warner Brothers, paired Tweety with a lisping, white-bellied, otherwise black cat named Sylvester, created by Freleng for the 1945 cartoon, "Life With Feathers". A buffoonish Sylvester in that cartoon and in "Peck Up Your Troubles" (1945) combated, respectively, a suicidal love bird and a woodpecker. Despite some initial opposition from general producer Edward Selzer, Freleng combined Clampett's bird with Sylvester, who evolved quickly into an often silent schemer and, like Chuck Jones' Wile E. Coyote, the eternally frustrated, empathetic pursuer of an elusive fowl.



The first Tweety-and-Sylvester duel, "Tweetie Pie" (1947), won an Academy Award, and the canary and cat starred in a total of 42 highly successful animated-cartoon short films from 1947 to 1964. Unlike the Road Runner series of cartoons, which were limited in setting to the U.S. southwestern desert, the cartoons with Tweety and Sylvester spanned the globe, plus history and fiction, and the duo were sometimes accompanied by Granny, a Tweety-protecting matron, and/or a bulldog. In his cartoons through the 1950s, Tweety became less energetic and a coy spectator of Sylvester's woebegone plots.

Sylvester proved his versatility by appearing without Tweety in several wonderful cartoons. In a lengthy line of cartoon shorts directed by Freleng's colleague, Robert McKimson, he fights a baby kangaroo, Hippety Hopper, which he and his impressionable son, Junior, constantly mistake for a giant mouse. Freleng's Sylvester is also the unwitting victor in confrontation with a bully bulldog, whose mongrel admirer proves to be a superior cat-fighter. In more Freleng classics, Sylvester is unsuccessful at catching a mouse that withholds from him a desperately needed can opener and is the victim of a drunken stork's misplaced bundle, of a adoringly destructive little girl, and of a commando Red Riding Hood mouse. Sylvester was also used by Freleng and McKimson as the feline opponent of Speedy Gonzales, Mexico's fastest rodent, and by Chuck Jones as traveling companion of Porky Pig in some scary places and situations.

For many years a staple on The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Hour, the duo of Tweety and Sylvester were given their own television show by CBS in September, 1976. On September 11, 1976, The Sylvester and Tweety Show premiered at 9 A.M. Atlantic Time, directly before The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Hour, which aired at 9:30. Midway through the 1976-7 season, CBS moved The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Hour to 10 o'clock and inserted an episode of Clue Club at 9:30 to separate Sylvester and Tweety at 9 A.M. from Bugs and the Road Runner at 10.


Title cards for some of the cartoons featured in episodes of The Sylvester and Tweety Show.

Each half-hour episode of Sylvester and Tweety contained three cartoons, the first and third with Tweety and Sylvester, and the second with Sylvester apart from Tweety. An exception to this was the installment airing on September 25, 1976, which contained three Tweety-and-Sylvester cartoons, "Trick or Tweet", "The Rebel Without Claws", and "Hawaiian Aye Aye". Often, a cartoon clip was added to an installment to extend the television program's duration by a minute or two. Following each episode of The Sylvester and Tweety Show was In the News, a short information segment to keep children informed on world affairs. Some of the sponsors for The Sylvester and Tweety Show were Sugar Pops and Cheerios breakfast cereals, Kenner Toys, Gabriel Toys, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, Tootsie Pops (who can forget the classic commercial in which a boy asks an owl how many licks are necessary to reach the Tootsie Roll center of a Tootsie Pop?), Bubble Yum, and, of course, McDonald's.


"Bad Ol' Putty Tat" and "Room and Bird" were two of the cartoons from which clips were used for the Sylvester and Tweety Show opening.

The opening for all episodes of The Sylvester and Tweety Show featured clips from some of their cartoons, among them "Bad Ol' Putty Tat" (Sylvester using a makeshift trampoline to reach Tweety's house), "Room and Bird" (Sylvester chasing Tweety down a corridor in the Spinsters' Arms Hotel), "Hoppy Daze" (Sylvester, coiled springs on feet, pursuing Hippety Hopper in a warehouse), and "Tweet, Tweet, Tweety" (Sylvester running after Tweety in a woodland and the two characters respectively rowing a log and a boat on a river). These clips were interspersed with new animation of Sylvester giving chase of Tweety on a stage, with lettering of their television show title behind them, in the same font as on title cards to their cartoon shorts as presented on the CBS television network since 1966. Robert McKimson directed these newly animated scenes, and he was listed above Friz Freleng and Chuck Jones in the cartoon directors' credits at the end of each installment. Sprightly music accompanied the visuals of the opening and of the closing credits. And Mel Blanc was sometimes known to voice Bugs Bunny announcing that The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Hour would be the next television program scheduled after Sylvester and Tweety.


The Christmas episode of The Sylvester and Tweety Show contained the three cartoons, "Gift Wrapped", "Canned Feud", and "Putty Tat Trouble", with Christmas being celebrated in Granny's house in "Gift Wrapped", Sylvester's people going away on a vacation and leaving Sylvester in a locked house with a mouse that holds the only thing that will enable Sylvester to eat any canned goods in "Canned Feud", and Tweety referring to Christmas as he removes snow from his nest in "Putty Tat Trouble".

On December 25, 1976, two of the cartoons on The Sylvester and Tweety Show were, appropriately, "Gift Wrapped" and "Putty Tat Trouble". Between them was "Canned Feud".

THE DAFFY DUCK SHOW

    "Here is the star of our show.
    The cool, calm Daffy Duck."
    "Yeeehaaaaw!"
    "Come, let's go now. On with the show now.
    Here's your chance to have some fun.
    Come on and laugh with Speedy and Daffy.
    You will be the happy one.
    You said you want to see a super show.
    Yes, you did! You said you did. Yes, you did!
    And so, let's go now. On with the show now.
    It's time to have a real good time.
    Real good time!"    
His first appearance was in the 1937 Tex Avery-directed Looney Tune, "Porky's Duck Hunt", as the mischievous mallard who frustrates hunter Porky Pig. For the first decade of his cartoon life, the "little, black duck" conceived by Avery and nurtured by Avery's fellow cartoon animation directors Robert Clampett and Chuck Jones, moved out of the marshland of his initial cartoon and became the most hyperactive, mirthful, multi-situational cartoon heckler in the Warner Brothers cartoons. Yet, he was gradually, through the 1940s, acquiring a different persona, that of a cowardly yet ambitious, gluttonous, and downright greedy egoist who would challenge Bugs Bunny's dominance, by dint of his conspicuous and shameless frailties, eventually becoming Bugs' jealous co-performer on stage in "Show Biz Bugs" (1957) and in The Bugs Bunny Show.

Jones made Daffy a vainglorious, failing star, the loser in several woodland confrontations with Bugs Bunny and with Elmer Fudd's rifle, and a miscast, overweening bumbler who revels in the prestige and never in the dangers involved with such roles as a "Western-type hero" in "Drip-Along Daffy" (1951), a Space Age adventurer in "Duck Dodgers in the 24 1/2th Century" (1953), swashbuckler in "The Scarlet Pumpernickel" (1950), Victorian era sleuth in "Deduce You Say" (1956), and a Robin Hood pretender to a laughing Porky Pig in "Robin Hood Daffy" (1958). In the same vein, Daffy was a somewhat less-than-invincible "Stupor Duck" (1956) and a recurring gumshoe battling formidable villains, in cartoons directed by Robert McKimson, who also paired Daffy with Porky, with Daffy as obnoxious hitchhiker, unrelenting insurance seller, huckster hotel operator, and burdensome houseguest.

Daffy did not receive exposure on an equal level to that of the other main Warner Brothers cartoon characters on CBS' The Road Runner Show and The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Hour. Few of his cartoons were included in the CBS package prior to 1975: "Don't Axe Me", "You Were Never Duckier", "Stupor Duck", "Duck Amuck", and some of Daffy's cartoons with Bugs. And although more of Daffy's cartoon outings were added after 1975, among them "Daffy Dilly", "Fast Buck Duck", "Aqua Duck", and "Robin Hood Daffy", Daffy was still mostly relegated to scenes on stage, in which he was usually humiliated by Bugs. The majority of his classic cartoons were distributed to individual television stations in the syndication packages of Bugs Bunny and Friends and Porky Pig and His Friends, with film prints of variable quality.

Starting in 1978, the NBC television network ran its own compilation television series of Warner Brothers cartoons. With CBS holding the television network rights to most Bugs Bunny, Road Runner, and Tweety and Sylvester cartoon shorts, NBC had little option but to air a television series starring Daffy, the only major Warner Brothers cartoon character with a sizable number of cartoons available outside of the rights held by CBS. Though NBC obtained some pre-1960 classics, for the most part the cartoons that it purchased the rights to air were post-1960, including nearly all of Daffy's limited-cartoon-animation tussles with Speedy Gonzales in a minimal-background Mexico. Several of Speedy's cartoons with Sylvester and small numbers of cartoons with other characters, were included in the mix.

The original opening to The Daffy Duck Show combined brief clips from the cartoons of Daffy, of Speedy, and of Daffy and Speedy together, with a rather uninspired song performed by a group of female singers. The opening to The Daffy Duck Show in its 1980-1 season, newly cartoon-animated, showed Pepe Le Pew descending into a hole in the middle of a vinyl record, and Yosemite Sam, Porky Pig, Tweety, Foghorn Leghorn, Granny, Speedy, Elmer Fudd, and Daffy emerging from the hole and scurrying away in various directions. An announcer then introduced most of these characters, and then Daffy and Speedy would squabble over who should receive "star" billing for the television show.

Each half-hour episode of The Daffy Duck Show contained four cartoon shorts.

The Saturday morning Daffy Duck Show premiered on NBC at 11:30 A.M. Atlantic Time on November 4, 1978, moved to 9 A.M. on September 15, 1979, returned to 11:30 on December 8, 1979, and remained there until its cancelation in 1981.

THE SYLVESTER & TWEETY, DAFFY & SPEEDY SHOW

In 1981, NBC ended its run of The Daffy Duck Show, and CBS acquired the rights to broadcast most of the cartoons that had been on Daffy's television show on NBC, including virtually all of the films pitting Daffy against Speedy Gonzales. In 1981-2, to supplement its 90-minute Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Show, CBS ran a half-hour television series consisting of the many Daffy and Speedy cartoons combined with those with Sylvester and Tweety. Most episodes of The Sylvester & Tweety, Daffy & Speedy Show contained 4 cartoons, usually two with the cat and canary and two with the duck and mouse. The Sylvester & Tweety, Daffy & Speedy Show expanded to an hour's length in September, 1982, but soon thereafter, when The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Show expanded to two hours, cartoons with Sylvester, Tweety, Daffy, and Speedy were absorbed into the two hours of The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Show.

THE BUGS BUNNY/LOONEY TUNES COMEDY HOUR

In September, 1985, the network rights to broadcast Warner Brothers' cartoons on Saturday morning transferred from CBS to ABC. On September 7, 1985, at 9 A.M. Atlantic Time, ABC began transmitting The Bugs Bunny/Looney Tunes Comedy Hour, a 13-episode television series, each installment of which contained 7 cartoons, some extensively edited for violence. No Speedy Gonzales cartoons were shown, presumably because of their Mexican stereotypes. And for some bizarre reason, no Tweety cartoons appeared either. Each installment in this television series was approximately 42 minutes long, with the remaining 17 minutes of airtime filled with commercials and a segment of Schoolhouse Rock.

The one-minute opening for The Bugs Bunny/Looney Tunes Comedy Hour was composed of quick cuts from various cartoons with which an announcer introduced each of the characters starring in the show. Clips from "Bully For Bugs" (Bugs being rear-ended by the Bull), "Little Boy Boo" (Foghorn Leghorn pitching a baseball to Egghead Jr., who bats it down Foghorn's throat), "The Scarlet Pumpernickel" (Porky Pig escorting Sylvester; Sylvester and Porky laughing at Daffy Duck), and "Drip-Along Daffy" (Daffy falling through the saloon floor after drinking Canasta's noxious cocktail and triggering his own guns into shooting a hole through the floor) were included in this assortment of cartoon excerpts.

The format of the television show was consistent in that the first cartoon in each installment was a Bugs Bunny, and the third was a Road Runner. For four consecutive weeks early in the season, the second cartoon in the episodes was a feature without regular characters: "A Waggily Tale", "I Was a Teenage Thumb", "The Hole Idea", and "Martian Through Georgia". Bugs was heavily favored in this television series, often appearing in 3 and sometimes 4 of the seven cartoons per episode.

Moving-graphic cartoon titling first utilized in the final Bugs Bunny/Road Runner season was retained for The Bugs Bunny/Looney Tunes Comedy Hour, but the accompanying music was that which had been used for all Bugs Bunny cartoons in Season 1 of The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Hour.

Below are images of the titling for some of the cartoons on The Bugs Bunny/Looney Tunes Comedy Hour.

   
   
   

The contents of the first installment of The Bugs Bunny/Looney Tunes Comedy Hour were "Portrait of the Artist as a Young Bunny", "Robin Hood Daffy", a severely edited "Fast and Furry-ous", "Bewitched Bunny", "Pop 'im Pop!", "A Scent of the Matterhorn", and "Knighty Knight Bugs". Installment two's cartoons were "Hot Cross Bunny", "Hippety Hopper", "Zoom at the Top", "Wideo Wabbit", "Mouse Wreckers", "Heaven Scent", and "Beanstalk Bunny". "A-Lad-in His Lamp", "Cats A-Weigh", "Gee Whiz-z-z-z!", "Hare-Breadth Hurry", "Who's Kitten Who?", "Dr. Jerkyl's Hide", and "High Diving Hare" were the cartoons in episode three. And six of the cartoons of episode four were "Mother Was a Rooster", "Going! Going! Gosh!", "Robot Rabbit", "Wild Over You", "A Fractured Leghorn", and "Dumb Patrol".

BUGS BUNNY ET SES AMIS

The Montreal-based TVA network, which telecasts through the predominantly French-speaking, Canadian province of Quebec and is available via satellite on cable television systems through Canada, tends to air American movies and popular television shows dubbed in French. In autumn of 1988, TVA broadcasted L'Epopee de Bugs Bunny, the French version of The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Movie (1979), which was cut to an hour's length, with commercials. In early January, 1989, TVA began running classic cartoon shorts under the title of Bugs Bunny et ses amis (Bugs Bunny and Friends) at 6:30 P.M. Eastern Time, after the evening news on Saturdays.

Installments were a half-hour long, with four cartoons shown in each. Titles and credits for the cartoons were cut, and to allow for additional commercial time, some cartoons were joined a minute in progress. Every installment started with a Bugs Bunny cartoon.

TVA showed a limited amount of cartoons from January to early September, 1989, repeating many of them twice. When the network obtained an entirely different and larger batch of cartoons in September of that year, all of the cartoons that it had been showing for the previous 8 months disappeared and for the next 11 years were not seen again on the network. Instead, the cartoons that first aired on TVA starting in late 1989 were recycled constantly- until 2000, when Bugs Bunny et ses amis was replaced on TVA by Quoi de neuf, Bugs?.

The quick opening and closing for Bugs Bunny et ses amis contained clips of "Duck! Rabbit! Duck!" (Daffy pointing at Bugs and shouting at Elmer to shoot his rifle), "Little Beau Pepe" (Pepe wooing the paint-striped cat), "Ali Baba Bound" (Porky riding Baby Dumpling), "Crockett-Doodle-Do" (Foghorn being struck by lightning), "Swallow the Leader" (the cat being dive-bombed by the swallows), "Zip N' Snort" (the Road Runner), and "Operation: Rabbit" (Wile E. Coyote about to be hit in his nitroglycerin shed by a train). An instrumental version of the Bugs and Daffy song, "This is It", played over these clips.

BUGS BUNNY (YTV)

Canada's Youth Television (YTV) began broadcasting in September, 1988, and although the specialty cable television station telecasted animated cartoon television shows galore, the Warner Brothers cartoons did not appear on YTV until August, 1997, under the title of Bugs Bunny.

YTV obtained prints of more than 200 post-1948 cartoons from Warner Brothers' Canadian division, which informed YTV that the cartoons were from the 1930s! While some occasional later time period (1958-64) Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies were in the package, the majority of the cartoons were of the late 1940s and early to mid-1950s, and the cartoons provided by Warner Brothers Canada were in no way affected by the distribution situation in the United States. Some of YTV's cartoons were also on ABC; some were on the WB Network; and some were on Nickelodeon.

YTV also obtained most of the prime-time television specials. Notable exceptions were How Bugs Bunny Won the West, Bugs and Daffy's Carnival of the Animals, and Bugs Bunny's Looney Christmas Tales. The specials were intermixed with 76 three-cartoon episodes, which were broadcast from Monday to Friday at 5:30 P.M. Atlantic Time, then for a short time period over the Holidays of 1997-8 at 12:30 P.M., then at 5 P.M. through to August, 1998. Starting on September 21, 1998, Bugs Bunny was retransmitted weekdays on YTV at 9:30 A.M.. A further three-cartoon installment was added when YTV moved Bugs Bunny to a 1:30 P.M. airtime in November, 1998.

Cartoons were run in their original format, with no editing of any kind, which is surprising as some cartoons have violence that has for a long time been deemed unsuitable for television, and others contained ethnic or racial stereotypes or racially stereotypical caricatures. "Caveman Inki", banned from television in the U.S., appeared whole on YTV, as also did the seldom shown "Which is Witch?" and "Wise Quackers", but the installments featuring these were run at the unusual airtime of 12:30 and past the notice of regular viewers of the 5:30 airings, and when these episodes circulated again in the summer of 1998, "Caveman Inki" was replaced by "Beep, Beep!", and "Wise Quackers" was superseded by "Hillbilly Hare". "Which is Witch?" was permitted to continue running, as also was "Southern Fried Rabbit" (with Bugs in black face posing as a slave).

QUOI DE NEUF, BUGS?

In 2000, the French-language TVA network in Quebec, Canada, replaced its long-running Bugs Bunny et ses amis with Quoi de neuf, Bugs?, another television compilation series of Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies cartoon shorts. All cartoon titles were henceforth shown, cartoons were sometimes edited for commercial time, and there were usually 4 cartoon features per installment. Broadcasts were at 11 A.M. Atlantic Time on Saturdays from January to June, 2000 and then on Saturdays at 1:30 P.M. and weekdays at 6:30 P.M. Atlantic Time.
