Steckler's entry into the kid-flick genre, 8 April 2006
Author: haildevilman from Tokyo, Japan

This was (probably) meant for TV. There were three separate shows on the video I saw.

Slide whistles, boops on heads, keystone kops style violence, and goofy outfits.

It looked like a Mack Sennet comedy with sound.

Steckler filmed this in and around his home using his friends and family mostly as cast. The anarchic wildness made this a trip from start to finish.

Steckler had a habit of making things up as he went along. And he was BRILLIANT at it.

My son liked this film enough to ask me to find the DVD so we don't have to deal with our worn out tape anymore.

This is a great film for the kids.
