Wake, Rattle, and Roll (retitled Jump, Rattle, and Roll when it aired on The Disney Channel on weekday afternoons in 1991) is a live-action/animated television show produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions and Four Point Entertainment that premiered in the fall of 1990. The show's title was inspired by the song "Shake, Rattle and Roll". After its single season on the air in syndication, Wake, Rattle, and Roll moved exclusively to The Disney Channel under the title Jump, Rattle, and Roll.Jump, Rattle, and Roll ran on The Disney Channel from October 7, 1991 to 1994. It has also been screened on Network Ten in Australia while the animated segments were broadcast on ITV in the UK as part of the short running Saturday morning children's programme TV Mayhem.
The series was about a boy named Sam Baxter (played by R. J. Williams) and his robot D.E.C.K.S. (voiced by Rob Paulsen; built from old audio/video equipment and a Sony U-Matic videotape head; an acronym for Digital Electronic Cassette-Headed Kinetic System) and their adventures in the basement, which has a time machine that can bring back historical figures. In some cases, Sam and D.E.C.K.S. occasionally have remote fights in which they each have a remote control and start pressing buttons changing each other from Hanna-Barbera stars to famous movie stars.
Sam's grandpa Dr. Lester T. Quirk (played by Avery Schreiber) is a brilliant inventor and is constantly supplying Sam and DECKS with sci-fi technology to add to their basement bedroom:
People Processor - A teleporter used to send or retrieve people to and from anywhere in the world. Sometimes, it could even send people through time.
Mondo-View - A supercomputer that was used for several reasons on the show, for example, Sam is able to talk to Grandpa Quirck anywhere in the world.
Debbie Detector - A video monitor used by Sam and DECKS to communicate with Sam's older sister Debbie (played by Terri Ivens) which lessens the amount of time Debbie spends in the basement. It often makes an alarm sound when she approaches.
Monster Tails is about a group of pets who live in a castle in Transylvania with their guardian Igor Jr. (voiced by Charlie Adler), the son of Igor (Iggy for short). Each of them had a similar personality to their masters, who are in Hollywood making movies:
Dr. Veenie (voiced by Jonathan Winters) - Dr. Jekyll's dog. Dr. Veenie's a brilliant scientist. But whenever he sneezes, he transforms into the super-strong (but berserk) Mr. Snyde (who's like Dr. Jekyll's alter ego Mr. Hyde).
This was the Wacky Races of the 1990s, in which the racers drove monster trucks made for racing. Each vehicle had a different theme, specific to its drivers; e.g., Yogi & Boo Boo's truck resembled a giant picnic basket on wheels. Game show announcer and disk jockey Shadoe Stevens provided the voice of the race announcer.
