Trivia

The near indecipherable and much-debated lyrics to the theme song are: "Hey smiling strange, you're looking happily deranged (Can you settle to shoot me,) and have you picked your target yet Hey Sandy...ai yai yai yai... Don't Ya' Talk Back, Hey Sandy Four feet Away, end of speech its the end of the day We was only funning, but guiltily I thought... You had it comin', Hey Sandy, Don't Ya Talk Back, Hey Sandy." The line in parenthesis above has never been revealed by the band members, and "Can you settle to shoot me?" is only one of several interpretations. See more »

Goofs

In the introduction of the show, Mark Mulcahy is wearing a gray vest. In the next shot, the vest is gone and he is only wearing a shirt. The vest switches on and off numerous times. See more »

Quotes

Fran 'Pit Stain': [to Little Pete] We've all got our problems, Wrigley. Mine happens to be glandular, yours happens to be my fist!
Bus Driver Stu Benedict: [grabbing Pit Stain's arm before he can punch Little Pete] Hi. I'm Stu Benedict, bus driver, and you're...

wow I miss this show
10 August 2001 | by (little rock) – See all my reviews

I think of all the shows I still wish were on tv, I miss this one the most. this was one of the most weirdest creative sitcoms ever made. it was like this bizarre little suburban universe that I really wanted to be part of. not only was the writing great, but the music by one of my favorite bands polaris, is also great. I don't think that televison gets much more creative and funny than this show.
