Rerun on Saturday mornings in the early 90's?, 13 September 2009
Author: andy-1268 from United States

I remember this show running on NBC Saturday mornings around 1990. I was around 12-13 at that time, but knew Corey Haim was much older at that point, or at least seemed it. It was funny to me then that a clearly old show was being shown around Saved by the Bell and that type... Anyway, just a memory, i watched it, even though it was pretty odd, and "Pauly" from Rocky was the main reason I got a kick out of it. I remember the NBC promo's stating that they were the only place you could see "Roomies!", which was funny since the show was obviously old, and if it were to become a Saturday morning hit, wouldn't be able to film more episodes. A show that's stuck with me for awhile, i thought I may have dreamt it.
