Hot Dog Man! Hot Dog Man!
19 May 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Remember the episode when Jesse was working as a Hot Dog Vendor at a wrestling arena and he ends up kicking some butt to the tune of a screaming crowd yelling "Hot Dog Man! Hot Dog Man?"

Priceless sci-fi entertainment for its day...

I loved this show when I was a kid... A shame it only lasted twelve episodes, since that's not realy long enough to be re-run...even on the Sci-Fi channel.

Time to check Ebay, methinks...
