    I got a free subscription when SMBSS came on the air on my local FOX network.

    I forgot about this. I never had it (no interest), but I do remember a commercial for it....vaguely.

    I believe 45 issues were produced in all, with the last one coming out in 2001. Like St. Jimmy said, the reason given in the last issue for ending the magazine was that too many trees were being destroyed printing it. However, it was most likely due to production costs along with the decline of Fox Kids (it ended less than a year later...a few months after the last issue came out, Fox Kids weekdays ended and was only on Saturday mornings). It began back in Fall of 1990 to coincide with the premiere of Fox Kids on Saturday, September 8, 1990.

    I've always said that no other basic cable children's programming block has ever extended its reach and level of committment to kids. Both the Totally Kids Magazine and the Fox Kids Countdown provided means of communicating with fans outside of the usual weekday and Saturday morning programming. Such forms of outside contact with viewers were unheard of in the early 90's. Kids could send in letters through both mediums and have their voice heard.

    Nevertheless, I've been in the process of putting together information on the magazine over the past year or so (in addition to the Fox Kids Countdown, as I said in the other thread related to that). I'v been able to track down about 25 of the issues, but I've been looking to complete the set so I can provide scans. I have tracked down a source that might possibly help me obtain every issue, but I've lost touch with that source recently. Hopefully, I can re-establish contact so I can provide you all with some info.

    Not to go off subject here, but for any of you who remember watching the very FIRST season of FoxKids: do you remember this one cartoon show that only lasted that single season called "The Pigsburg Pigs"? I only started watching it around spring up until its cancellation. If anybody has any more info on this cartoon (or an intro), I'd sure like to see it up on this site.

    Piggsburg Pigs!, along with Fox Funhouse and Zazoo U, premiered during the first season of Fox Kids and were not renewed for a second season (extra credit to the whoever knows which of the three was cancelled first). I have seen episodes of Zazoo U and Fox Funhouse, but I've yet to see anything for Piggsburg Pigs. Nevertheless, all three series are extremely hard to come by today. The only remnants of Piggsburg Pigs! that I've been able to track down are the four McDonald's Happy Meal toys.

    I know what you mean. The mag came free to my grandma's house for some reason in the last years of it's publication and it was being sent from a Fox station in the Twin Cities which is quite out of my area. I've got mixed feelings on the mag considering when I was getting it I was in ninth grade and I disliked Fox's cartoons shows except the first year of Digimon, the Ripping Friends, Spider-Man/Spider-Man Unlimited and the five episodes of Escaflowne they played. Cybersix really creeped me out and I totally avoided that one. A superchick who has the secret identity of a man. Talk about scary.
