It's strange looking back.
13 September 2001 | by (Rush,Ky) – See all my reviews

I probably would have forgotten Richard Pryor's kids show if it were not for a ancient VHS tape I made when I was little. Have you ever looked at an 80's home recording of network TV? Man, That's some strange s**t! No wonder so many folks back in the day started (ahem)freebasing!

Well, I'll get to the show. Basically, you take "Fat Albert", and give it a little edge (more ethnic humor than say, "The Brown Hornet"), make it live action and throw in a couple of muppet-esque puppets, and you Pryor's Place in a nutshell. I can't believe Amazon has all the episodes on VHS!
