A forgotten gem of TV's slightly tarnished age, 16 March 1999
Author: willie-14 from Houston

I had totally forgotten this show which I used to watch as a child until word of Peggy Cass's death a few days ago made me think of it again. I remember the enjoyment of seeing the Marquis Chimps do their thing weekly, but wonder how hard it must have been for Ms. Cass and Mr. Weston to film with notorious upstagers each week!
