Cartoon Production Information:


Australian rock star Rick Springfield lent his name, likeness, and songs to this 13-episode show about a magic schoolteacher and her six students. Originally spun off from an episode of fellow Filmation series The Brady Kids, Mission: Magic starred teacher Miss Tickle, her pet cat Tut-Tut, and students Franklin, Vinnie, Kim, Carol, Harvey, and Socks, who together formed the "Adventurers Club." The animated Rick Springfield also had a pet, an owl named Tolamy.

In every episode, some sort of trouble reared its head in Rick's alternate dimension, and the singer would contact Miss Tickle on his magic gramophone for help. Responding to the call, Tickle would draw a chalk door on the blackboard, creating a portal to Rick's fantasy world. Not surprisingly, principal Mr. Samuels disapproved of all the supernatural goings-on, but Tickle's otherworldly field trips were simply too exciting for the Adventurers Club to pass up.

At the time this cartoon aired, Springfield was primarily a superstar in his own homeland, with 1972's "Speak To the Sky" as his only stateside hit. He would, of course, go on to greater U.S. fame as a star of daytime's General Hospital and as the singer of "Jesse's Girl" and "Don't Talk To Strangers."

Traditional, Hand-drawn Animation.
