The Get Along Gang
Oh, those syrupy-sweet folks at American Greetings. As if Care Bears, Holly Hobbie, and Lady Lovely Locks weren’t enough, they had to keep going… and give us the ne’er-do-wrong Get Along Gang. (And by ‘gang’, we’re most definitely NOT talking about the kids who used to hang out behind shop class stealing swigs of dad’s whiskey.)
The worst that Montgomery, Zipper, Dotty, and the rest of the G.A.G. posse had to face were their fellow animal friends maybe being a little bit annoying. Just a little, though… everybody got along with everybody in Green Meadow, don’t ya know.
Yes, life in that old, abandoned caboose was pretty sunny for our friends. Sure, Catchum Crocodile would occasionally cause a wee bit of havoc, but it wasn’t anything that a little teamwork, positive thinking, and friendship couldn’t handle.
Awww, that’s sweet.
The Get Along Gang ran only for a year on CBS, beginning in September 1984, and only 14 episodes ever saw the light of day. We chalk it up to the fact that life was just too darn perfect for these animated animals. Sometimes you just need a Gargamel or two to make things interesting.
There’s no denying it, though…
We ♥ The Get Along Gang.
