What about Alan Thicke?
15 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Alan Thicke hosted this show and it only shows Fred Savage on the credits? What's up with that? I was thinking about this show because because I just saw Alan's son Robin Thicke play and I was thinking, "What was that show Alan Thicke did on Saturday mornings on ABC about the animals." It was this show but you'd never know from IMDb. This is one of the few times I've found IMDb to have incomplete info on a mainstream network show. The thing that I always remembered about this show was the theme song. It went something like, "Animals are the funniest people, we love animals." I also remember this really good bit they had they're panel (who were playing for their favorite animal charity) guess what monkeys and squirls would do to get food and it was hilarious. The snow monkeys in particular stand out in my mind. I think they had so much about snow monkeys because the show had some deal with Tokyo television to get footage from them. They were always showing snow monkeys (not that I'm complaining).
