I'm Dickens, He's Fenster
29 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was 6 or 7 when this show aired. Even though I was very young I was impressed. I thought this show was hilarious. I don't recall specific episodes but I remember a lot of slapstick-type humor. I do know that I looked forward to this show coming on but it was canceled all too soon. I'm happy for IMDb where I could check on this show since I didn't even remember the name-just that it starred Astin and Ingles. I was glad when John Astin showed up on The Adams Family, one of my favorites as a child. I was sorry that Marty Ingles didn't show up again, at least on anything I might have watched as a kid. It would be great if someone would dig up the old episodes, there wasn't many I'm sure, and make them available. It says a lot that I remembered aspects of this show, the actors and that they were carpenters, from when I was so very young -esp. since its run was so short-lived.
