Production Notes:


It's hard not to imagine the pitch meeting that started it all. An animation executive comes into the room, says "Hey, let's have a show based on the rock star Meatloaf!" and is met with the overwhelming response of "Yeah, kids love Meatloaf!"

Meatballs and Spaghetti was indeed a cartoon incarnation of Meatloaf, with the large-girthed musician's name thinly disguised as "Meatball." Together with Spaghetti, his skinny and talented singer/wife, the two shared adventures that only a struggling husband and wife rock band could share, somehow managing to fit in at least one song per episode. Always ready to help out was Meatball's assistant, Clyde, as well as Spaghetti's loyal dog, Woofer.

Though the show ran on CBS in the 1980s, it felt more like a product of the 60's, with these husband-and-wife "mod" rockers as the show's main characters. Up against ABC's powerhouse Scooby and Scrappy Doo, Meatballs and Spaghetti went on to rock & roll heaven after one season.

Traditional, Hand-drawn Animation.
