Classic Nick Wednesday
Show Title Needed
Show Title Needed
Wednesday, January 28, 2015
The other day I received an IM on Facebook from my friend Andrew. He asked if I could help me him remember the name of a show which aired on Nickelodeon in the 1980’s. I wasn’t able to help him but I thought maybe some of you could. Here is a copy of the conversation we had. If you know the name of this show please post it in the comments below.
Thank you in advance,
Advocate for Classic Nickelodeon

I can’t remember the name of it I just remember it was about a bunch of urban street kids hanging out trying alcohol, running from gangs who beat up some kids grandpa there’s a dead cat in it that eats a spoiled sandwich it was kind of a creepy show for kids the main characters were this young black woman and this nerdy young kid with glasses

hummm, 7 years younger than me. I don't remember that as a SD. I asked for your age thinking that it may have been something that aired in the 90's which would be after my time.

It was early 80s era

Well, it could have been an after school special. In December I went thought the list of SD titles that I had and saved all the links to post to my blog as Classic Nickelodeon Special Deliveries. What I discovered was that a couple of titles that I had listed were not SD they were after school specials. But don't give up hope b/c there is still a chance that we can find the title.
I should have access to my Word program tomorrow (have to go buy ANOTHER code for it - I'm seriously pissed about that) Anyway, on Wednesday I will post a special blog asking for the title to this program with the clues you've given me. Surely someone out there would know what it is.

The kid blows a horn to alert his friends to arrest the gang that beat up his grandpa that's the last clue I can remember.
