In Search of Saturday

Welcome to “In Search of Saturdays" an advertising space I’ve designed to help our members find those long-lost movies, cartoons, TV shows, toys, games and anything else that we’ve all been looking for, for a very long time.

The instructions are simple. Post your personal “looking for” list in the comments and we’ll all see if we can help you find what you’re looking for. - This will be a group effort please.

If you can’t remember the name of a show or toy that’s alright, post what you can remember and maybe someone here will be able to tell you what it is. Also, please remember that if you are listing television shows or movies please let us know if you are looking to purchase these shows or if you just want to watch them online. Then we, the members of the group, will help try to help each other and go “in search of” those items for our fellow members.

A good place to start our searches is iOffer which, in my opinion, is better than eBay because you can find lots of shows there that you can’t find anywhere else.

*** MY WANT LIST ***
This is a list of the Classic Nickelodeon programs that I’m looking for to purchase. Please note that I am a private collector who does not copy and resell my collection. The videos and DVDs that I collect are for my own private viewing here in my home or my Mother’s house where I originally watched them. If you have any of these and would like to sell me copies please contact me at Also, IF YOU CONTACT ME VIA EMAIL PLEASE PUT THE NAME OF THE SHOW IN THE SUBJECT LINE. Thank you.

Classic Nick Friday – Standby. . .Lights! Camera! Action!

Leonard Nimoy hosts a show on the Nickelodeon cable channel that takes a behind-the-scenes look at major movies. 

CineMagic Issue #22 by Starlog Press
Publication Date – 1983

“Standby. . .Lights! Camera! Action!” is a series of 12 one-hour shows on the Nickelodeon cable channel that takes viewers behind the scenes of major motion pictures and examines how movies are made. The show should especially interest CINEMAGIC readers because a variety of special effects are explored by host Leonard Nimoy and his guests. Past guests have included a mechanical effects technician, a professional stuntwoman and others whose profession is some fascinating aspect of film- making. Nimoy invariably has his guests demonstrate the tricks of their trade.

Recently, CINEMAGIC Publisher Kerry O'Quinn appeared on "Standby. . .Lights! Camera! Action!" to talk about the CINEMAGIC/SVA Short Film Search. C1NEMAG1C Editor-in-Chief David Hutchison also appeared on the show and demonstrated a few simple special effects that CINEMAG1C readers should be familiar with, among them: miniature rocket exhaust, miniature explosions, making a raygun from house- hold items, and creating a cobweb effect. Damon Santostefano, a 1980 CINEMAGIC/SVA winner appeared on a segment aired in August and talked about his winning film Roublex O.M.F. and his aspirations of directing feature films. Joey Ahlbum, a 1982 winner of the CINEMAGIC/SVA Short Film Search, has also appeared on the show to talk about his film, Bandits, and his career in the animation field.

Produced exclusively for Nickelodeon, "The First Channel for Kids," each hour examines three films; the principals involved are interviewed; the stunts and special effects are demonstrated; and every detail, right down to makeup and costumes, is explained in such a way that fantasies are preserved, curiosity is heightened and awe of the silver screen is intensified.

"Standby. . .Lights! Camera! Action!" fulfills the need created by the proliferation of films aimed at young audiences.  The fantastic qualities of these films has created a desire in many young people to learn how movies are made. That desire is in the heart of every C1NEMAGIC reader, and "Standby. . .Lights! Camera! Action!" provides a rare opportunity to sample the methods behind the magic of
today's blockbusters.

Films featured in the series include: E.T.; Star Wars; The Empire Strikes Back; Revenge of the Jedi; Annie; Superman III; Black Stallion II; Wonder Woman; and Raiders of the Lost Ark sequel. CM
