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

Tahj Mowry: What was that?
Al: "Jurassic Park", smart guy. You were in "Jurassic Park", remember?
Tahj Mowry: No, no, I wasn't! And besides, that wasn't even a clip from the movie! That was just your music video!

The best "kids" show of the nineties.
28 January 2001 | by (Bellerose, NY) – See all my reviews

Why this show was cancelled so quick is beyond me. Oh yeah... the ratings. Well it's not the show's fault, it was the time slot (it was on at 8:30am on Saturdays where I live). This show was great nontheless with its take on the kid show genre in general. I still love the Bill Nye parody where everyone is singing "The Grass is Green" (you have to see it to understand) and the 80% Chance of Rain (a spoof on disaster movies). I hope they release these on tape sometime soon.
