Thunder is a television series which aired on Saturday Mornings on NBC during the 1977-1978 television season. The show centered around the adventures of Cindy Prescott and her friend, Willie Williams and featured Thunder, a black stallion who ran wild near the ranch owned by the Prescott family: The cast also featured Cindy’s parents: Bill, a rancher, and Anne, a veterinarian. Thunder was always there to rescue Cindy and/or Willie in times of trouble “caused by others’ misdeeds and thoughtlessness,” including a forest fire caused by a practical joker, and Willie being hit by a stray bullet fired by teens in a no-shooting area. Also playing a part in the adventures was Willie’s stubborn mule, Cupcake, who was trained to “burp” on camera. For about a month, in an effort to improve ratings, the producers of Thunder re-titled the show “Super Horse, Starring Thunder.” Thunder was created by the creators of Fury, another show featuring a stallion. This show also aired on NBC, from 1955 to 1960. Thunder was part of a 90-minute block of three live action shows to debut on NBC during the 1977 season, along with Search and Rescue: the Alpha Team and The Red Hand Gang. It was the only one of the three run for a full season in the United States, with all episodes aired.

Sesame Street… 20 Years & Still Counting is a special aired on Friday April 7, 1989 on NBC. It was made to celebrate the 20th season of the popular children's show, Sesame Street. This special, unlike most Sesame Street specials, was not made by Children's Television Workshop but by Jim Henson Productions and was meant to air as part of The Jim Henson Hour, but ended up airing as a solo special the week before the premiere episode aired. In the special, comedian Bill Cosby tells us about the history of the show while interacting with various Muppet characters. Among the subjects featured are the curriculum, the show's adult humor and even the foreign co-productions. There are also guest appearances; opera singer Plácido Domingo sings with Placido Flamingo, and Ray Charles sings "It's Not Easy Bein' Green". Meanwhile, Ernie and Bert are taping the street with their video camera so they can watch Sesame Street on television. Every now and then, we cut to Kermit the Frog in his Muppet News attire asking people how to get to Sesame Street, occasionally running into people who were on the show when they were kids. The show ends with the characters all singing "Sing". The program was dedicated to the memory of Joe Raposo.
