Scorch was a 1300-year-old dragon who lived with TV weatherman Brian and his daughter Jessica. Scorch could talk, and appeared with Brian on his news program posing as a ventriloquist's dummy. Scorch would make jokes during Brian's weather forecasts. No one knew Scorch's real identity. Written by

I don't know what's your beef about this show, Ira, but I enjoyed it when I was 10. Scorch is a lot different than Alf because the latter isn't that funny at all.
This puppet was so hilarious to the point that he's a little annoying.. but still funny. The show doesn't rely on slapstick but on constant punchline exchanges from Scorch and Brian, then Scorch and Howard... especially Howard and that's the thing that makes it spectacular! I was laughing my butt off whenever he ridiculed Howard on the set and made him choke on the anchorman's attempt to be a smart ass! Hope you'll try watching the show again, Ira (I said try). Maybe it'd change your mind... or maybe not. In any case, I just hope this show gets released on DVD! I'm willing to shell out my hard earned cash just to get a chance to relive the moment. If Pirate 1 knows how to grab a copy (I hope it's on a compact disc), please do write me. Thanks!
