Trivia

Brian Edward O'Connor improvised much of his dialogue as Schemer. He also came up with the idea of his single hair curl, as well as his garish costuming (which he staid belonged to his father). In fact, O'Connor improvised so much during filming that he was eventually given credit for Additional Material. See more »

A fond memory from my childhood.
24 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved this show (no kidding right) but it was extra special to me because I was and still am very picky about what I watch. Sure the characters got hammy once in a while but this show was great. Didi Conn, Brian O'Conner, Ringo Starr and Georger Carlin (R.I.P) were excellent. Stacy's nice but worried attitude, Schemer's jerk and childish attitude and Mr. Conductors funny and wise attitudes were real great. I don't know why but my favorite episode was the one with the Good Conductor and the Evil Conductor because of the hilarity that ensued. Overall I think that if you ever find a tape that you should definitely watch it, I own two myself.
