HOT WHEELS!! The 1969 Cartoon LP!
DADDYKIN HAD THIS TO SAY WHEN HE SHARED THIS LP:
"Hi. Remember the "Hot Wheels" cartoon from 1969? The show was part of the "Saturday Super Club" programming on ABC-TV...the pic from the comic book ad may jog your memory. It was basically a half-hour cartoon ad for the Mattel toyline of the same name. The FCC cancelled the show for this reason, but not before a comic book from DC and a soundtrack album from Forward Records were released. Classic toon designer Alex Toth provided the look of the show, and also drew the DC comic book. Like "Scooby-Doo," there were bubblegum songs played during the show even though the characters weren't in a band. Mike Curb and Michael Lloyd produced the album, which features an anonymous Davie Allan and the Arrows playing the soundtrack!
The theme to "Sky Hawks," another Curb endeavor that ran side by side with "Hot Wheels," is included on this album. Original album cover artwork, pics from the cartoon, and all six comic book covers are included in the folder. Gentlemen, start your engines...TRACK LISTING: 01. IT'S MAGIC, 02. SKY HAWKS, 03. MILLIE LA RUE, 04. JACK RABBIT SPECIAL, 05. MOTHERS, 06. HOT WHEELS, 07. COME BACK BABY, 08. DANCE LITTLE GIRL, 09. WHERE THE NICEST PEOPLE MEET, 10. WORDS AND MUSIC."
