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

New FCC regulations required a portion of children's programming to be educational, therefore CBS executives required each episode of the Weird Al show to have some kind of "moral lesson" at the beginning that was played out during the show. See more »
Say, Al, what do you want to do today?
Well, we could pour maple syrup all over the rug and then lick it off...

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.
