Trivia / Calvin and the Colonel

  • Creator Killer: The show's failure ended up bankrupting TV Spots, the animation studio.
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: Mostly in black-and-white, although some color copies recently resurfaced into some collectors' hands.
  • Recycled Script: Many episodes were adaptations of scripts from Amos 'n' Andy.
  • Screwed by the Network: The show was taken off its Tuesday night slot after six episodes due to low ratings. The remaining 20 aired the following year on Saturday nights to complete the first season contract and fulfill Lever Brothers' agreement to sponsor the show.
