The Hudson Brothers--Bill, Mark and Brett--hosted this colorful and fast-paced Saturday morning comedy variety series aimed at children. Taped in Toronto, the show featured plenty of music, sketches, blackouts and one crazed emu puppet that attacked almost everyone in the cast. Written by Marty McKee <>

Great fun!

1974...I was ten and I remember vividly laughing at Chuckie Margolis and falling over in delirious cackles as Emu the bird, after trying hard to learn to be a delicate artist with paint, splattered everything in sight (especially his "handler", Rod's FACE) with paint. That bird was our favorite, even though it was obvious to us young 'uns that it was a mere puppet. Hull had a talented hand, in that he could make that bird's expression of boredom or displeasure convincing, not unlike Jim Henson and his Muppets.

I was a music fan as well so the music helped keep my interest in the show. All of the regulars were hilarious and familiar through the short run of the show...I wish I could remember them all, so I shall keep a sharp eye out for a DVD compilation, if one exists or is in the making.

"Care for a chocolate-covered cricket, marinated in sauerkraut?" "NO THANKS...*snap-crack*...WE'RE TRYING TO CUT DOWN!"
