Cartoon Production Information:

Dick Clark provided the rock and roll songs for the background of this story.

The special was produced and presented to ABC in 1981, which decided not to air it. It was very graphic for a Hanna-Barbera cartoon, including a sequence of the Vietnam War, and ABC felt the time was not quite right for airing. The film was retooled in the mid-80s, with a new sequence featuring classic Hanna-Barbera cartoon clips set to Wham's hit single "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go." ABC still would not air the special.

To date, the sole public showing was at the 2nd Los Angeles International Animation Celebration in July 1987.
