Emergency + Four

Synopsis of Saturday Morning Show

A cartoon version of the prime time TV show Emergency!, this show teamed paramedics Roy DeSoto and John Gage with four youngsters: Jason, Randy, Matthew, and Matthew’s sister Sally, who was later renamed Carol. Together with Flash the dog, Charlemagne the mynah bird, and Bananas the monkey, the group attempted to avert any and all disasters in Los Angeles County.

The voices of DeSoto and Gage were provided by the actors who had brought the characters to life in prime time, Kevin Tighe and Randolph Mantooth, respectively. The animated version lasted three seasons, the last of which consisted of reruns.
