“Bang the Chocolate Turtle Drum” (alternate title: “Not Very Good Friends”)

After the “accidental” death of his younger beauty queen sister, JonBenet (Lindsay Sidney Greenbush), 9-year-old Burke (Jackie Earle Haley) processes his grief by confiding in a kindly police interrogator (Russell Johnson of “Gilligan’s Island” fame). Told in flashbacks, the story depicts the siblings’ complex but loving relationship: Burke shredding his sister’s rhinestone cowgirl costume before The Boulder Little Miss Pageant, Burke stabbing her with a section of train track from his miniature railroad set, and Burke batting her over the head with a flashlight after the little harlot tries to steal his pineapple while enjoying a midnight snack. Burke finally breaks down when the interrogator offers him some candy from a box of chocolate turtles—the same brand JonBenet loved! The same kind of candy box in which he’d always replace the chocolate turtles with his own feces!

The interrogator ends the session by bringing in Burke’s parents, John and Patsy (played by real-life husband and wife Hal Holbrook and Delta Burke), who had been anxiously waiting in the reception area. Burke cries “I was jealous because you loved her more than me!” Patsy reassures him, “Don’t worry son—she’ll never come between us again!”

The program ends with the family and the interrogator making a pact to never to reveal the contents of their discussion. The family gives the interrogator stacks of cash before returning home. The interrogator gives his two weeks notice then flies to the south of France to live out the rest of his days in luxury.

The final scene: JonBenet’s Little Miss Crown sits atop the family’s fireplace. The camera pans down to the fire, where the empty box of candy and a cord of rope slowly burn as the end credits roll.

Producer’s note: Any resemblance to any person(s), living or dead, is purely coincidental!

IMO, Helen’s appearances on the Afterschool Specials never really worked, because her footage was always so obviously shot separately from the child actors in order to circumvent lawsuits.

They just didn’t have the technology back then to make the interactions appear seamless.

Frankly, this was a sad period for her.

Because of this thread I watched the real Afterschool Special "Please Don't Hit Me, Mom!" on YouTube.

Lesbian icon Nancy McKeon babysits 8-year-old Sean Astin when she notices bruises all over his body. Oh, what to do? It doesn't help that the boy's older brother has asked Nancy to the prom and tells her to butt out of his family's business. Pretending she's writing a paper, Nancy meets with a doctor who gives her straight talk on child abuse and what she needs to do next.

The best part was that Sean's mom was his real-life mom, Patty Duke Astin, and as always in these TV projects she's the best thing in them. She really goes after Sean in a scary way that she probably couldn't have done with a random child actor.

(1978) Jennifer (Susan Olson) learns the evils of mixing Quaaludes and gin at a raucous teen party across the tracks in the town's wealthy neighborhood. She is full of despair when she finds she is pregnant with not one, but two babies. Not wanting to end up like her worthless, alcoholic mother (Susan Blakely), Jen sets out to find the paternity of the twins. Her young chemistry teacher (Special Guest Star Susan Day) assists on the quest, often invoking the ire of the school's principal, played by Lawrence Luckinbill. As luck would have it, Jennifer makes an early discovery of a certain DNA just as she's going into labor. It turns out the father of Twin #1 is rich boy Danny (Lance Kerwin), and Twin #2 was fathered by another town richie (Dennis Christopher). Their mothers (Susan Lucci, Susan Anton, respectively) are furious when they learn how this white trash teen harlot seduced their unsuspecting sons. But the truth comes out, and Jennifer has her day in court, winning extravagant child support awards. Special Guest Star Susan Sullivan plays the judge. Another win for plucky new single mom Jennifer is receiving a patent for her DNA discovery, and a job at a newly formed biotech. Rolling in cash, she moves with the twins out of the cramped single wide she shares her useless mother and into the rich folks' hood. Introducing Nell Carter as the twins' mammy/wet nurse. Music by Toni Basil.
