Sight gags on the show
17 May 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I recall one episode where a customer who had her kitchen remodeled by Dickens and Fenster and she complained that the magnetic catches on her cabinet doors were too strong. Fenster argued with her about her complaint as Dickens replaced the catches with weaker ones. They left the kitchen, magnets in Dickens pocket....and the refrigerator followed them out the door, drawn by the magnets in his pockets!! I was nine years old, hey, it was funny. The theme song, I recall it clearly, was some bizarre melody played on what sounded like a kazoo played underwater, and indeed the title of the song was the "I'm Dickens, He's Fenster March" and it was available on some cheesy album of then-current TV show themes. Wish this series was available on DVD or, in syndication on cable!!
