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 <>

Another boring day on the island of Pegi Pegi
16 January 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

It's great to see that the Hudson Brothers' efforts with their Razzle Dazzle show didn't go to waste. I remember that show, I was 10 then and looked forward to Saturday mornings. I was especially fond of Island of Pegi Pegi skits, I still quote this phrase to this day... and I've had some laughs (outlouds) from people my age, being present when I've said it... They may have not lasted more than 3 years, but I really wish they'd play it again, in reruns or TCM/AMC... somewhere! Comedy lasts forever, once funny - always funny!

Another part of the show that was great was the skit "Margolis", I knew a guy like that, nothing he said was ever true - we had "selective hearing" when he babbled on and on... all us teens knew better than to listen to him (hey you made the news Beauchemin)..Anyway, this skit reminded me of this weirdo, but funny??? Absolutely - turns out it was their own material (The Hudsons) - the only material allowed by the "brass" at the show written by Mark, Bill & Brett...DUH

It would be great to see them in action again (despite the years) I've said "once funny - always funny!"
