1988 closing credits from “As The World Turns” including the advertisement that put the “soap” in “soap opera”, Dan Region’s invitation for the next episode, and the Procter & Gamble Productions ident. I don’t know about you, but that theme song really sticks out in my memory. My mom watched ATWT religiously (hence the VHS recording), so this sequence conjures a weird nostalgia for me. A nostalgia for simpler times, console televisions, and syndicated cartoons.

I can’t find much on the Interweb about this apparently short-lived TV series from late-80s/early-90s CBS, but it was apparently intended to compete against NBC’s ALF in the Tuesday night primetime lineup.
Does anyone remember this show? Seems like it was a follow-up to the wildly popular “Rescue 911” and CBS’s answer to Fox’s “COPS”
