Trivia

The cartoon became a massive cult favorite in Poland, Hungary, and other Eastern European countries, due to its repeated showings during the 2000s, and good quality dubbing work. Many consider it a cherished childhood favorite, it ranks among the most beloved animated series ever for people who grew up during that time, and several of its jokes are quoted to this day. In comparison, it was mostly forgotten in America. See more »

Ever Thought You Had A Strange Family?
27 August 2002 | by (U.S.A) – See all my reviews

Louie Anderson's stand-up comedy about life as a child is now a Saturday morning cartoon. There was Dad, Mom, and his 10 brothers and sisters.

In the cartoon, Louie's dad is named Andy, though in real life it was Louie. I guess they changed it to avoid confusion. There were all kinds of crazy episodes, like the one where the family goes to a theme park across the country. They raft down the Grand Canyon, even fly a hot air balloon and when they finally arrive, they find the theme park has moved. Or how about the one where they take a vacation to Lake Winibagasha where Dad tries to catch a giant legendary fish. Of course not all the episodes were fun and games, some were serious, like the death of Louie's grandmother. Actually, I think that was the only serious one. Another good one is where Louie get's a goldfish and names it Pepper. He feeds it doughnuts (Louie's favorite food. I wonder if he ever wanted to be a cop) and it grows to twice it's normal size; Dad owned a 1949 Rambler, which was a real piece of junk, but he loved it. (Funny, in one of Louie Anderson's stand-up shows he said his father drove a Bonneville.) Anyway, Dad loved that car. And even though Louie didn't, he helped fix it up so Dad could drive it in the Veterans' Day parade. That's something else his Dad was, a veteran from the big war: WWII. He'd always be telling stories about what he had and didn't have during the war. It's not on anymore, but it was a pretty good show when it was on. Hopefully it will one day return to TV. In the meantime, Louie Anderson currently hosts Family Feud.
