Somebody must have been "Puffin' Stuff"!

Sid & Marty Kroft did some pretty strange s**t back in the day but, Richard Pryor hosting a Saturday morning TV show? Of course, in retrospect, Paul Reubens wasn't exactly Mr. Rodgers either. It IS refreshing to see Mr. Pryor work clean AND play various characters including a street-corner, sax-playing Rastafarian. Pryor's Place is one of those good ideas that just didn't have enough time to marinate.

I think Ray Parker Jr. (of Ghostbuster Theme fame) said it best: (Whoa-oh-oh) Let's get on over to Pryor's Place. (Pryor's Place) (Whoa-oh-oh) We're gonna party so, don't be late. (Don't be late) We've got plenty of friends Who live in the street. The craziest people you'll ever meet On Pryor's Place (whoa-oh-OOOH) Pryor's Place!
