The 1987 "Adoption" episode was never seen in the U.S. again following its original airing, and it never aired in Canada. Among the scenes that led to the banning is the one where Valerie and Lance adopt Doug because it was cheaper than buying a dog. The studio master of this episode has a large label on it reading "DO NOT AIR". By 1987, there were fifteen episodes pulled from the rotation for Nickelodeon: the banned "Adoption" episode, all thirteen 1981 episodes, and the 1982 "Cosmetics" episode. Including Alasdair's "Crusher Wallace, the school bully" and the censored locker monster skits. While telling jokes, one of the kids is eaten alive in front of the cast. See more »
Teddy Roosevelt was a famous sportsman, and Ernest Hemingway was a famous hunter. Can you name a famous camper?
Yeah, my parent's Winnebago.

You know, how can you let Vanessa answer any more of these questions? Her jokes are terrible.
I wouldn't talk, Lisa.

That's all she can do.

While the first six years of this show are arguably the best, any chance to see any of the reruns is to be seized with both hands. The comedy goes from the brilliant to the bizarre, the feel is fun, and the layout is something worth stealing. There's a whole generation out there who still fight the urge to duck whenever they say the words "I don't know" for fear of green slime falling from above, and many a fond smile can be found when the phrase "Lisa, don't encourage your father" is repeated in a certain tone of voice. When this show was good, it was very, very good.
