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

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 »

Quotes

Announcer: Can you imagine a world without dirt? It seems dirt is everywhere. Chances are there is dirt somewhere underneath you right now. Many things grow in dirt. Like carrots. Carrots are good to eat. But you should never eat dirt; it doesn't taste very good and you might get dirt on your uvula. Dirt is dirty, so if it gets on you, wash it off. Rocks are dirty because they're found in the dirt and they have dirt on them. Some people like to study rocks. Whatever.

I miss this show
6 July 1999 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I miss this show it was funny, I loved the parodies of the milk ads and TV shows like Sabrina, The Teenage Fish and Mummy and Daddy, and the 50% Chance of Rain,Fatman,Harvery the Hamster and Fred Higgans, which were all hilarious i get cracked up just thinking about them also I don't remember the musical guests and there were also weird regulars, and the parodies of those 50's school film It's kind of like Pee-Wee's Playhouse only crazier. My cousin (who is 30 something year old guy) thought it was interesting because where he lived it came on before a farming program.
