Happy Groundhog Day with alternate history 80's TV shows starring Punxsutawney Phil

Happy Groundhog's Day!

Did you ever wonder just how many days are depicted in the movie Groundhog Day? Catch up on the seer of seers, prognosticator of prognosticators, the groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil's's predictions for the year. It's six more weeks of winter.

Did you know that PETA wants to replace Phil with an animatronic groundhog? I for one would like to be the first to welcome our robotic groundhog overlords.

Now some alternate history 80's TV shows starring Punxsutawney Phil...

And so, Punxsutawney Phil finds himself leaping from Groundhog's Day to Groundhog's Day, striving to put right what once went wrong, and hoping each time that his next leap, will be the leap home.

(Ten years ago / In 1972), a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit. This groundhog promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Punxsutawney underground. Today, still wanted by the government, Punxsutawney Phil survives as a soldier of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire... The Groundhog-Team.

The Groundhog is wanted for a murder he didn't commit. Punxsutawney Phil is believed to be dead; and he must let the world think that he is dead, until he can find a way to control the raging spirit that dwells within him...

(Quantum leap, Incredible Hulk, A-team)
