I am having serious difficulty getting Mathematica 3.0 to combine graphs using ParametricPlot3D expressions.

EX:
a=ParametricPlot3D[t, 0.5t^2, 0.2t^3, RGBColor[1,0,0]}, {t,-2,2},
BoxRatios->{1,1,1},
AxesLabel->{x,y,z},
PlotRange->{{-2,2},{0,2},{-2,2}},
ViewPoint->{3,1,1}];

b=ParametricPlot3D[t, 0.5t^2, 0, RGBColor[0,0,1]}, {t,-2,2},
BoxRatios->{1,1,1},
AxesLabel->{x,y,z},
PlotRange->{{-2,2},{0,2},{-2,2}},
ViewPoint->{3,1,1}];

Shouldn't ''Show[a, b]'' work then?

I'm getting this error message.

In[17]:=
Show[a, b]

Show::''gcomb'':
''An error was encountered in combining the graphics objects in \
\!\(Show[\(\*TagBox[\(\\[SkeletonIndicator] Graphics3D \
\\[SkeletonIndicator]\), False, Rule[Editable, False]], b\)]\).''
Out[17]=
Show[\[SkeletonIndicator]Graphics3D\[SkeletonIndicator],b]

I've been through the ''book'' and tried to research this out. I'm new at Mathematica and am CLUELESS. Can anyone shed any light on my problem? Thanks.
