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 »
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.

"The Weird Al Show" only lasted for 13 episodes. I think the biggest reason for this is that the audience for such a show was probably rather small to begin with and the network's moving the show around didn't help any. Now I like Weird Al--and even went to his concert a few months back. BUT, his weird and surreal humor just isn't the sort of thing that will appeal to most adults. And, as far as kids go, it would appeal to the strange kids out there (like me when I was young) but just couldn't compete with corporate programming. It was was too different and filled with bizarre skits and unusual guest stars--much of which would have gone over the heads of many kids.
My feeling is that before you try watching the show, get copy of Al's "UHF". It's somewhat like the show but with more polish and the skits are far less hit or miss. Then, once you know whether or not you like this sort of strange humor, find the DVDs and watch away. Overall a very good show but a definite niche show.
