Will Be Available On DVD Soon, Supposedly, 13 April 2011
Author: suldog from United States

Supposedly, all the masters for all 32 episodes were found and are being transferred to DVD. The question is when?

I loved this show when I was young. Great slapstick, but not the mindless variety. Clever sight gags and some real heart displayed by the writers.

Leonard Stern was the mastermind behind it, and he deserves credit for putting together a great cast.

Oddly, the show appears to have been canceled despite good reviews and rising ratings at the end of its one-season run.
