This series popularized the character of accident-prone stuntman Super Dave Osborne (Bob Einstein), leading to a spinoff TV series and even a movie a few years later. The character, however, actually originated on an earlier John Byner TV series in the early 1970s. See more »
The sketches on this show were edgy for it's time. I saw most of the series when it aired on syndicated TV. They would bleep out the obscene words with a loud "honk" car horn sound which made it even funnier! The Bigot Family sketches always cracked me up. Even though it was a "racey" sketch it always ended with Byner as the Irishman saying "but we still love each other". Another one of my faves was the McDrive-thrus. Every show had a different one like: McJoke- in-the-Box, McSex-in-the-Box, & McCheech & McChong-in-the-Box. Super Dave was also great. He was like a human Mr. Bill. This needs to be out on DVD...soon!
