1. A-Lad-in-Bagdad

Description: The LikeTelevision™ Cartoon channel proudly presents A-Lad-in-Bagdad, get it.... like Aladdin... and his magic lamp. This cartoon is very overtly racist - as the Black Genie is an ugly stereotype - and of course the villain, the evil Arab character, appears to be an early member of Al Queda, working for the notorious Osama Bin Laden. This funky cartoon features that egghead guy as Aladdin, who wins the lamp in one of those midway crane games -see the great gum grabber in the toy section if you are confused. Well, the Sultan plans an entertainment contest to see who gets to marry his daughter. And it appears he is smoking a houka, you know..... a water pipe, like in the Jefferson airplane song, White Rabbit, which featured the houka smoking catepillar. Got it? BTW - we know that Bagdad is really spelled Baghdad.... ummm, I think it is anyway. It is hard to believe this was made for children, huh? Our apologies - we present it as a piece of history.

2. Angels Hard As They Come

Description: LikeTelevision's movie channel proudly presents -Angels Hard As They Come, a classic biker movie. Warning: This film contains some gratuitous nudity, drugs and foul language, like most biker films. Angels Hard As They Come, was made in 1971, is an interesting piece of film history for a lot of reasons. Jonathan Demme produced the film and helped write the screenplay. Demme is best known for directing Philadelphia with Tom Hanks and Silence of the Lambs starring Jodie Foster as Clarice Starling and Anthony Hopkins as Dr. Hannibal Lecter. But here's a little factiod tie-in - Scott Glenn, the hero Long John in Angels Hard As They Come played Clarice's boss, Jack Crawford and Roger Corman was FBI Director Hayden Burke in Demme's film adaptation of the terrific Thomas Harris novel. Small world, huh?. Also of note, Angels Hard As They Come marks the screen debut of Gary Busey, who stars as the hippy, Henry - while in real life, he's an avid biker.

8. Dubious Lampoonery - Kinky Fried Man

Description: The LikeTelevision™ movie channel presents Doobious Lampoonery, some short video parodies from a 1977 film called American Raspberry. The list of stars in this film is seemingly endless. Check out IMDB for a full listing. The series - Doobious Lampoonery contains adult situations, course language and some brief nudity. As such, it is recommended for adults only. The second clip in this 7 pack is called Kinky Fried Man and features Kinky Friedman as Ol Ben Lucas, the cowboy racounteur. The ditty goes like this - Ol Ben Lucas, had a lot of mucus coming right out of his nose. And now many years later - sweet Kinky Friedman is running for Governor of Texas. Only in America. Followed by the Frontier Gynecologist - a very silly comedy short. Given the passage of time - the comedy is even more weird than when it first aired.

9. Get Christie Love

Description: Get Christie Love - a 1970s funky action drama about a kick butt police woman, played by Teresa Graves is a classic, and has a spot in the history of movies. The movie morphed into a short-lived TV series of the same name and Teresa Graves was the first black woman on TV to star in an hour long show. By today's hypercritical PC insanity - this movie could be viewed as racist. There are some stereotyping incidents and other things that will make you roll your eyes - and yes - they use the N word. At the same time - Christie Love is a heroine - and a tough, karate kicking Mamma Jamma. The TV show played opposite another classic female cop drama - Police Woman, starring Angie Dickinson. Lots of channel flipping times, yes they were.
