I'm trying to find the name of a Saturday morning cartoon that was on in the later half of the 80s, probably between 86-87.

In the first episode there were three or four real kids (not cartoons). Something happened to them and they were transported into a cartoon world where they were also cartoons. This transformation was also shown in during the opening of each episode.

They went to an underground world, I think it might have been in the sewers, that was populated by these small green non-humanoid creatures who became their friends. From what I remember, it was one of those Smurf rip-off, like The Snorks.

I think it was only on for one season and it was never very popular; that is, I never heard anyone discuss it anywhere else.

Does anyone remember this or do you know where I could find some 80s cartoon database.

Thanks!

Btw, kind of off-topic but remember the cereal commercials they played during Saturday morning cartoons? Did you ever notice that they were all exactly the same: Some cartoon character was trying to steal the cereal. Every one was like that. It's pretty funny/scary that that is what they figured out most appealed to the psyche of children.

It's not that Kidd Video but the transition to the cartoon world and attempts to get back sounds just like it.

I'm sure the cartoon I am looking for borrowed heavily from it, as many movies/TV shows are basically rip-offs of something else that was popular from that time.

Thanks though!

Underground + little green creatures reminds me a bit of The Secret World of Og, but there are no live-action segments in that miniseries, unless the topic creator has confused the two.
