Funny Satire
15 July 2006 | by (Missouri, United States) – See all my reviews

I recall my parents used to tape this show for me when I was younger, as it was on late at night. I remember it being quite funny, though I would probably get more of the jokes now.

The one episode I remember well involved Nixon investing the bartenders money in the stock market and losing it. He tried to raise money by selling his "precious bodily fluids" (as he called it) to people who couldn't pass drug tests, and by writing a children's book with himself as the hero.

There were cameos by all the living ex-presidents and many of the celebrities of the day. It also had some witty lines, and some funny physical comedy involving the Gerald Ford puppet. I really hope to see it on DVD one of these days.
