If you interspersed it with scenes of getting eaten by a giant couch, this would be exactly what my dreams were like at age 6.

Is that flying dune buggy a Meyers Manx?
Ah, found the Wikipedia page on "Wonderbug". I was both right and wrong about it being a Meyers Manx.
"In Wonderbug mode, the car was a Volkswagen-based Meyers Manx-clone body. Specifically the body was a Dune Runner manufactured by Dune Buggy Enterprises of Westminster, California. Dune Buggy Enterprises offered the Dune Runner with three different hood choices. Wonderbug has the T- Bird hood choice."
Wonderbug was my favorite when I was a wee nerd.
The scenes where it would switch to a hand puppet (I'm not kidding) in front of a blue screen so it could do facial expressions was a bit jarring, though.
And how does this NOT earn a "white people" tag?
I'd say I might have seen Wonderbug as a kid, but I think I'm just thinking of SPEED BUGGY from the Hanna-Barbera cartoon of the same name, which has more or less the exact same face as Wonderbug, just in cartoon form.
Same style, yeah. I liked "Wheelie and the Chopper Bunch" better than "Speed Buggy."
I must've had a thing for protagonist vehicles that only communicated non-verbally. I wonder if they make medication for that?

I like how Kaptain Kool flat out sexually harasses Superchick and everybody's totally fine with it.
Also, did they sing the line, "When you join us / you'll know why we are gay"?
Don't get left behind
Take a trip with us today
We will lead you through a land of dreams
Krofft's got some super shows
They will blow your mind away
When you join us, you'll know why we say
It's just a crazy world
Where anything goes down
Where most of what appears isn't true
So in this crazy world
We like be around
And laugh at life along with you
Did you know the guy who played Kaptain Kool also auditioned for Fonzie!

I hated this show so God-damned much when I was a kid.
Seriously, you wouldn't think a six-year-old capable of such hatred and rage as this thing inspired in me.

I liked the Supershow, it was fast moving (didn't remember how intense until I watched the clip), and had different segments to keep you interested, plus it has Bigfoot And Wildboy, and Bigfoot is always awesome.
I was a veteran of shows like Electric Company and Banana Splits, so I could understand this, full of stuff that kids would like.
This was probably killed off by Star Wars, entertainment changed after that came out.

Magic Mongo sounded so familiar I had to look the guy up on imdb. Apparently he did a million cartoon voices including Scrappy Doo!
I never imagined the voice of Scrappy looking like that.
