A long-lost Muppet gem

Well, I'm 37 and I absolutely adored this show. I still remember Bobut's Lambie-Pie & Stinky Stevie, and "I require Choc-O-Yum chocolate pudding", his vestments being too heavy, Tweeznax, Doug's mug and the plot of all the episodes I saw on Saturday mornings, even though I only saw them once.

The humor was similar to Family Guy, with Bobut being a baby (alien) with adult intelligence and wanting to his kill his nanny Sally. I thought it was much wittier than Alf. I don't understand how a show like Alf could succeed and this smarter show could fail.

I would LOVE to have this on DVD or to purchase for download on Amazon.
