    Your reference to Kaptain Kool and the Kongs reminded me of a factoid that has always amused me: Kaptain Kool himself was played by Michael Lembeck, who went pretty much directly from this gig to playing a lead in the R-rated Viet Nam drama THE BOYS IN COMPANY C. (He now works steadily as a director of sitcoms.)

    One of the Kongs was Debra Clinger, who had previously had a sort of semi-fame as a member of the singing group the Clinger Sisters. She tried to establish herself as an actress about the same time that a young woman named Debra Winger was just beginning to get work. At the time it was very easy to confuse them; now, the distinctions seem obvious.
