Storyline

The basic plot of this show was that Weird Al was coming to you from a split-level cave twenty miles below the surface of the earth, along with his pet, Harvey The Wonder Hamster. Each show would have a rather loose plot around which strange and weird things would happen. Written by Jonathan D. H. Parshall <parshall@citcom.net>

Trivia

According to Weird Al Yankovic, when the show was hiring writers, a young Seth MacFarlane approached the network with the original blueprints for Family Guy, hoping to turn it into a series of animated segments for the show. Had he been hired, The Weird Al Show would have been to Family Guy what The Tracy Ullman Show was to The Simpsons. See more »

Quotes

Martha Quinn: If someone asks you for directions, stop. Think about it for a moment, and if you don't know the best way for them to go, smile and tell them cheerfully that you can't help them and they should ask someone else. Giving someone directions that you're not sure about, even if you're just trying to help, is a bad idea. Don't be a hero. No directions are better than bad directions.

One of my favorite Saturday Morning TV shows.
27 August 1999 | by (Vernon, NJ) – See all my reviews

Why'd they take this show off the air. It was the'90's version of "Pee-wee's Playhouse". I am a very big "Weird Al" fan, and I was very disappointed when they took it off the air. I got the new "Weird Al" CD, and I get kind of upset when I listen to the show's theme song on the CD. They should put "The 'Weird Al' Show" back on TV.
