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 <>

Laugh In, The Marx Brothers and the Archies Combined
16 July 2004 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

This was one of those shows that stuck out in the 1970's. The Hudson's were pretty much promoted as a combination bubble gum act/Marx Brothers act. The brothers had a prime time summer variety series and it pretty much was decided to move the boys to Saturday mornings where their talents would be more in line with the audience they were trying to reach. However, this was a pretty good show. It was a combination of "Laugh In" and "American Bandstand". The brothers, Bill, Brett and Mark, showed off both their musical and comedic talents backed with a great ensemble cast. Also, this was one of the few shows that were on during that year that didn't try to be overly preachy and try to teach the kiddies how to be good little boys and girls. This is definite lost gem of the 1970's.
