I remember sometime in early 2000 watching this cartoon series on FOX on Saturday mornings that, from what I remember ended up being very short-lived and was on along with the Escaflowne series. It was set on a post-apocalyptic earth where science was forbidden and replaced with magic. Could anyone help?

Please guys and gals - help an old SFFer find this film. I've scoured the web and no luck but maybe one of you Childs of the 80s can help...
This film I simply remember loving. I'm pretty sure it was an 80s film and all I can recall is the ending where they're stuck in a ski-lift and it starts swaying as they either get it on or have a party (yup, memories that hazey) - I'm also sure Shannon's "Let the Music Play" was the closing credits too...
Anyone? Someone? Help!!

There was a television kids show on PBS in the 80's that had a woman and man probably in their late 30's early 40's. She was a blonde with short hair and dressed in a long red late 1800's dress with a black hat, he wore a pirate outfit, had brown hair, parted it down the middle and feathered it back. He had a thick mustache and spoke with a gruff voice like a pirate. He called her "lady". I can't remember what she called him. If I remember correctly they were stuck on an island and the map they had gave them clues to letter sounds and objects with those sounds. Loved that show....was gonna look it up and can't remember the name. Any help?

Oh my god I have been trying to figure out the name of this movie for what feels like 10 years.
The only things I can remember from it are:
It's from the late 80's or early 90's.
There is a young girl with purple hair who befriends some sort or alien girl.
The alien girl has two dots on the side of her forehead.
The purple haired girl takes the alien girl home to live with her, her brother & mom.
There are two men dressed in black that are after the alien girl.
That is pretty much it. Thanks!

Question please help!
i have a very vague recollection of this cartoon. not sure when it was made. but i watched it in the 80's. it wasn't on tv that i know of. we used to rent the video. i think they were short cartoons. from what i can remember there was a man who lived in a house in the middle of nowhere. may have been on a hill. one of the episodes he fell asleep and was dreaming he was lying on his bed flying in the night sky and objects were flying past him. i think there may have been horns or trumpets. and another episode i think had to do with a christmas tree and the star on top of it. please help thanks

Looking for a title of a film
Okay so this is a long shot...It may hav been a film on tv so i dont even know if it'd be on video or dvd...AND i cannot even remember the name OR any of the actors...
The plot was...
There was a not so pretty girl with big unattractive glasses, curly hair...an aunt who was a waitress. She worked on a farm/horse range place. The main guy in the film trained up a "snobby" blonde girl who would win the ribbons at the dressage horse shows etc but then this snobby girl quits on the trainer....thus starts the love story betwean the not so pretty girl and the trainer when she decides to try out to be in the horse show...she ends up getting a makeover and they fall for eachother...
i cant remember any more...the way its made sorta makes m think of those mid day movies...that sorta feel.
it may have been a canadian film...or american...of the 80's...maybe 70's but i reckon 80's...
its a long shot but thought i'd give it a go and ask!!!

Gentleman and Scholar
Does any remember...
It was one of the cool childrens supernatural dramas that used to appear on the BBC and ITV during the 70s and 80s. This one may have been in the 90s or a repeat of something from one of the decades above.
I can't remember much about it, other than one of the things it featured was a drummer boy in some caves below a ruined castle/manor house.
While I am on this subject, anyone remember any other supernatural serials aimed at children? Wonder why they don't do that stuff any more - even things like the Demon Head Master.

Alright. It was sort of like Power Rangers. I remember that much. There was a princess too. She had red hair, and gold armor. I think it was on Kids WB!

I saw a movie last night and I really want to know what it was called.
I didn't see it the whole way through though.
It was about thig group of people went to stay up in a log cabin in the country. They were just sitting round when a man knocked on their door, and asked them for help. He looked like Freddy Krugger and he was bleeding heavily. One guy, who had seen the man earlier, told him to clear off, but the man simply got into the group's car. They started freaking out, and began attacking the man, hitting him. Eventually they set him on fire by accident and he died. However he ran to the resevoir whilst on fire, and died in the water. Anyway, one of the girls ended up bleeding the same way as the man had. She started off feeling sick, and a few hours later, her legs were covered in blood. The rest of the group stuck her out into the shed, since she was infected. Then another guy got it and drove off since they were all arguing, and because the girl who had it was having a coughing fit, vomiting blood. He went to the town to get a doctor, but the shopkeeper's son decided to bite the guy's hand for no apparent reason, simply yelling "pancakes," doing karate and then biting him. (that part was hilarious.) Anyway the boy's dad told the guy he didn't want his son getting sick, so he tried to shoot him, but the guy escaped. Meanwhile back at the house another girl had gotten the disease, and started freaking out. She went outside, covered in blood and ended up being ate alive by a dog, who I think belonged to the Freddy Krugger guy. then the dog started eating the girl in the shed, and one of the guys shot the dog.
The guy who went for help was shot by the shopkeeper who followed him, the guy who shot the dog shot the men who followed him, and he got the disease as well.
Basically they all died. It was so weird.

Star Wars fans
I'm trying to find a movie that I only saw the previews for. It was a comedy about a bunch of guys who decide to go to California to steal a copy of the new Star Wars movie. It looked really funny but I can't find it.

There was a show on TV in the late seventies or early eighties that I believe was called Cliffhanger. It featured three serialized stories, running in a staggered fashion, so that at none of the stories were ever resolved in the same episode. These stories were much like the old serials that were shown in movie theaters an age ago. Anyway, I do remember one of the stories being about cowboys battling an evil organization that lived underground with the entrance being through a hidden cave.
