Trivia

The diner which provided the setting for many jokes, songs and sketches throughout the series was named Harold's Diner. The proprietor, Harold, frequently interacted with the boys in a variety of ways - not all of them friendly. In a rim shot sketch in one episode, Harold makes the whole gang line up to receive vaccinations before they're allowed to be seated. When asked what the vaccinations are for, Harold impatiently replies, "I have mice - I don't want them to get sick!" See more »

Rock 'n' Roll will never die.
11 February 2007 | by (Tokyo, Japan) – See all my reviews

I was never a huge fan of 50's rock, but I still couldn't help liking this show.

This was like every other comedy ensemble. Putting the greaser rock songs in and having guest stars from the same era helped a lot. You always wondered which lost classic they'd cover next. And putting comedy into the performances was great too.

Of course Bowzer pretty much owned this show. It would not have worked without him. Some of his humor sounded ad-libbed too. The guy was a trip.

Other favorite were Big Lenny (Why do the big guys always have the high tenors?) and Santini. (Great deadpan from him.) Great show.
