...And I'm Puzzled!
29 December 2009 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

John Astin has always been a laugh riot. As Gomez Addams on THE ADDAMS FAMILY, he was too much. Even on an episode of NIGHT GALLERY where he played a soul condemned to hell, his comical flair still shone through. And Marty Ingels is also a great comedian.

Put the two together and you can expect nothing less than total hilarity. Together, the two could turn even the lamest of scripts into classic comedy.

I remember this program when it was on prime time. If memory serves me correctly, this sit-com followed THE FLINTSTONES on ABC. Even at the tender age of 8, I understood this blue collar comedy about two bumbling carpenters for what it was, a laugh riot.

What I cannot understand is why this sit com was never picked up for syndication after the show got the cancellation ax.

What I understand even less, is why this series was never released on DVD or even as a budget VHS tape.

Hello? Is there anybody out there who feels the same? DVD? Please?
