"Life's getting better..."
17 November 2009 | by (McDonough, GA) – See all my reviews

I can't vote on the quality of this show, save that I remember the opening lines of the theme song:

"Life's getting better/Spring's coming soon/Nine feet of snow/And it's only June".

I am glad others remember so many details about this show; I recall that they tried to make a catchphrase out of Ivan calling someone a "yutz" or a "yotz".

There were several shows that I watched as a child that I tried to make "my shows", which was to say, shows that I alone watched and found funny. "Big Eddie" was one I used to watch and this one. Apparently, my attempts at maturity outstripped my memory!
