|On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly.

The Harlem Globetrotters
The series focused on the Globetrotters traveling from place to place in their red-white-and-blue bus (driven by their coach Granny and assisted by their dog mascot Dribbles) only to become engaged in conflict with ne'er-do-wells. The Globetrotters sought to make things right and still make time for a basketball game.
Cartoon liberties are taken with the Globetrotters' court antics, as the team used anything from kites to motor scooters to even a legal court dias to score against their opponents. The team's live-action performances usually involved sleight-of-hand with the ball and general mischief with the referees.
In 1972 and 1973, the Globetrotters appeared on The New Scooby-Doo Movies. In 1978, the Globetrotters' show was slotted in by NBC as a mid-season replacement under the umbrella title Go Go Globetrotters. In 1979, they were turned into superheroes as The Super Globetrotters, and the same year they made an apperance in a segment of Fred and Barney Meet The Thing.
