Oh man, I remember watching this show but I don't remember much about it. Time to check out episodes on youtube. RIP John Candy.

I remember it. Saturday Morning NBC camp cartoon with John Candy voicing the harmless camp coucilor and the 6 stereotype kids. The trouble maker, the neurotic nerd, the glamour girl and more. The evil land developer was always trying to get the camp closed. Harmless enough.

Ah yes. It all started coming back to me once I watched the intro. Made it even cooler than John Candy actually sang the intro too =P I think this show made me want to go to summer camp until I saw the Kamp Krusty episode of the SImpsons =P

Kamp Krusty is my favorite episode of the Simpsons. "Shut up and eat your pinecone!"

About this tv show


The show was set in a fictional summer camp run by Candy. The animated series spawned a brief comic book series based on the show; also entitled Camp Candy, it was published by Marvel Comics' Star Comics imprint.

Twenty-seven episodes of the series aired during the 1989 and 1990 television seasons on the NBC television network. Thirteen new episodes ran in syndication in the 1992 season, along with repeats of the previous episodes. The series was later rerun on the Fox Family cable channel in 1998.

Harry Nilsson wrote the series' theme song, which Candy sang.

The later syndicated broadcasts featured live action segments featuring Candy.

In both versions, the closing credits featured songs about Camp Candy that were sung to the tune of various traditional "campfire" songs.
