The show started out with a run time of 30-minutes, then was boosted to 60-minutes. It ended up going to 90-minutes when Garbage Pail Kids (1988) was canceled after a mere 13 episodes, and CBS had nothing else to fill the void. See more »
This was one of my all time favorites growing up. I think I saw every episode, up till the 90s episodes anyway. I loved all their crazy adventures and how they'd imagine themselves in movies and TV shows.
I always felt so bad for poor Fozzie. No one ever laughed at his jokes. I felt really bad for him in the episode where he wanted to run away.
My two favorites were Gonzo and Animal. I loved Gonzo because he was weird and marched to the beat of a different drummer. I loved Animal because he was wild.
And of course I loved Barbara Billigsly as Nanny. I always wished we could see her face, but maybe it was better that we couldn't. I still remember the episode where she explained why there are earthquakes. It was simple and in a way a child could understand.
