Quotes

Richard Nixon: Jim Bakker became a disgrace when he got caught with a woman. Jimmy Swaggert became a disgrace when he went to a hotel with a woman. Gary Hart became a disgrace when he dared the press to follow him. I remember the good old days when you had to have brains to be a disgrace.

Whacked out, and I loved every Minute of it!
21 October 2002 | by (UT, USA) – See all my reviews

It's pure silliness, slapstick, you name it, it's that very thing. It's just what you'd expect from Sid & Marty Krofft. They were great in the ways they chose to portray their characters and it was funny without dragging their names through the mud. They played on every possible political issue and made perfect satire of it. In it's own chosen dimension (and I do mean outside this sphere), this was an absolute MASTERPIECE!!!
