The Greatest Henson Production Since 'Dinosaurs'!
26 August 2002 | by (U.S.A) – See all my reviews

This show was a hit! It was a brilliant idea. Since they made the mistake of getting rid of Dinosaurs, this show more than filled the gap. It was like a galactical Brady Bunch. And the baby, Bobut. He was classic! That's David Rudman doing his voice. We all know David as that annoying Baby Bear on Sesame Street; but the show didn't last for very long, because like Dinosaurs, this show got alot of heat from critics. It lasted about eight episodes then was pulled off. I don't really remember much about the show so I can't do that extensive of a review, but I definately know that it was funny, hip and outrageous! If only they'd bring it back, but unfortunately it's probably been taken to the TV Graveyard with over classics you never see on TV anymore: like Dinosaurs, Muppets Tonight, Baby Bob, Muppet Babies, Pee-wee's Playhouse, Sanford and Son, The America's Funniest Home Videos with Bob Saget, Top of the Heap, 704 Hauser, Checking In, the list goes on and on. But anyway, I'm telling you that Aliens in the Family was a great show and the fact that it was cancelled shows that TV networks have no taste!
