Wake, Rattle, and Roll (retitled Jump, Rattle, and Roll when it aired on The Disney Channel on weekday afternoons in 1991) is a live-action/animated television show produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions and Four Point Entertainment that premiered in the fall of 1990. The show's title was inspired by the song "Shake, Rattle and Roll". After its single season on the air in syndication, Wake, Rattle, and Roll moved exclusively to The Disney Channel under the title Jump, Rattle, and Roll.
The series was about a boy named Sam Baxter (played by R. J. Williams) and his robot D.E.C.K.S. (voiced by Rob Paulsen; built from old audio/video equipment and a Sony U-Matic videotape head; an acronym for Digital Electronic Cassette-Headed Kinetic System) and their adventures in the basement, which has a time machine that can bring back historical figures. In some cases, Sam and D.E.C.K.S. occasionally have remote fights in which they each have a remote control and start pressing buttons changing each other from Hanna-Barbera stars to famous movie stars.
Sam's grandpa Dr. Lester T. Quirk (played by Avery Schreiber) is a brilliant inventor and is constantly supplying Sam and DECKS with sci-fi technology to add to their basement bedroom:
- People Processor - A teleporter used to send or retrieve people to and from anywhere in the world. Sometimes, it could even send people through time.
- Mondo-View - A supercomputer that was used for several reasons on the show, for example, Sam is able to talk to Grandpa Quirck anywhere in the world.
- Debbie Detector - A video monitor used by Sam and DECKS to communicate with Sam's older sister Debbie (played by Terri Ivens) which lessens the amount of time Debbie spends in the basement. It often makes an alarm sound when she approaches.
After a short live-action skit, D.E.C.K.S. would turn on the television screen on his torso and display an animated short. There are two new Hanna-Barbera series made exclusively for this program.
Monster Tails is about a group of pets who live in a castle in Transylvania with their guardian Igor Jr. (voiced by Charlie Adler), the son of Igor (Iggy for short). Each of them had a similar personality to their masters, who are in Hollywood making movies:
- Frankenmutt (voiced by Frank Welker) - He is the dog of Frankenstein's Monster. He has incredible strength, organ-playing abilities and the brain of a genius, literally.
- Elsa (voiced by Pat Musick) - She is the pet dog of the Bride of Frankenstein. Elsa has the brain of a parrot and a crush on Frankenmutt.
- Catula (voiced by Charlie Adler) - He is Count Dracula's cat. Although Catula is arrogant, he's a master of magic and transformations, usually.
- Mumfrey (voiced by Frank Welker impersonating Woody Allen) - He's the Mummy's dog. Mumfrey is a constant insomniac.
- Dr. Veenie (voiced by Jonathan Winters) - He's is Dr. Jekyll's dog. Dr. Veenie's a brilliant scientist. But whenever he sneezes, he transforms into the superstrong but berserk Mr. Snyde (who's like Dr. Jekyll's alter ego Mr. Hyde).
- Angel (voiced by Pat Musick) - The pet goldfish of the Creature from the Black Lagoon. Angel's a ghost because she was eaten by a shark. Angel tends to shout at certain times.

1: Yogi & Boo-Boo Bear in the Jellystone Jammer.

Because Disney Channel didn't have any commercial breaks at the time, Hanna-Barbera added a "secret cartoon" at the end of the last live-action segment, which was either reruns of "Dino and the Cave Mouse" (Cave Mouse became a part of the opening credits for the Disney Channel episodes) from The Flintstones Comedy Show or re-runs of "Undercover Elephant" from The CB Bears Show.
