The ’80s was a good era for television. After all, those ten years gave the world Cheers, Family Ties, Hill Street Blues and The Golden Girls, to name just a few classic series. However, plenty of that decade’s shows subsequently slipped into obscurity, never to really resurface – until now, that is.

60. Ace Crawford, Private Eye

Ace Crawford, Private Eye was a parody of the stereotypical film noir detective, starring Tim Conway in the title role. But Conway wasn’t having much luck with TV shows at that point in his life. His variety show The Tim Conway Comedy Hour had only survived for a little over three months, and Ace Crawford fared even worse at a mere five episodes.

59. My Pet Monster

Like many of the cartoon characters of its era, My Pet Monster started out as a mascot for greeting cards. He was a little blue guy with horns, fangs and (more strangely) orange plastic handcuffs. Such was his success that he was given his own direct-to-video movie and cartoon show, but in the end the series lasted just 13 episodes in the latter half of 1987.
