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.
