ABC Afterschool Special was a series that the network ran from 1972 to 1997, aimed pretty squarely at teaching kids what they thought were important lessons. While some episodes were pretty great, others were just straight up weird, with these 10 being especially strange.
It Isn't Easy Being a Teenage Millionaire (1977)
It was about the dangers of letting money control your life after you've won the lottery. Somehow we get the feeling not many kids really related to this one.
High School Narc (1985)
A 22 year old police officer (because those TOTALLY exist) has to pretend to be a student to expose who's dealing drugs in the local high school (it turns out to be Viggo Mortenson).
The Late Great Me! Story of a Teenage Alcoholic (1979)
A 15-year-old girl starts drinking to impress a boy, but then basically becomes an alcoholic overnight. The message kind of gets lost in how insane it is.
Pssst! Hammerman's After You! (1974)
A kid has to face his bully after school, complete with every possible cliche for this kind of story that you could possibly think of.
