Bowzer once stunned a fourth season audience by announcing dramatically at the end of one episode, "This is the last Sha Na Na show you will ever see." He then launches into an explanation that "me and the boys (sic) have been giving it a lot of thought, and we've decided that it's time to move on". Moments later, this is revealed to be a setup for an elaborate joke, as Bowzer responds to a "message" from an off-stage producer: "What?! We HAVEN'T been canceled?!"

A bunch of never-weres from the fifties dug back up to make a boring, poorly-written show in the seventies. The leader had a dog's name. They were obviously on a sound stage. They were nowhere near as funny as they thought they were. Its dumbness was only comparable to the "Brady Bunch Hour." It was very adolescent. I tried to avoid it, but my little brothers had to have it on sometimes.
