Memory Lane
14 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My brother and I used to fiend for this show as kids. I remember seeing Ace Ventura and thinking... "Oh my God. It's the guy from that Duck Animation Show!" No one ever knew what I was talking about except my brother. It's just funny that a guy I grew up watching every day just disappeared only to pop up again 20 years later and be a Hollywood superstar. Sure the show was a little tame, but I think what I liked about it so much was that it didn't try too hard. I mean sure it had wacky and funny, but it also was easy to get drawn into because it wasn't too far out of real life. Like a Welcome Back Cotter or Night Court. You could sink into the characters as real people. Not cheesy fabricated icons of what a stereotype of a person should be.
