You cantankerous crocodile!!
30 January 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

So to quote Basil Bitterbottom (Harris), the high-strung director of one of the weirdest shows ever to be made for kids. At least by '70s standards.

"Uncle Croc's Block" featured the great Charles Nelson Reilly as the reptile of the title, with Burt Reynolds movie regular Alfie Wise as his pink furry side-kick Rabbit Ears. The set they performed on looked co-designed by Salvador Dali and the guys from "Pee-Wee's Playhouse".

Of course, like any show, they'd show cartoons. Uncle Croc, though, preferred cartoons the likes of "M*A*S*H" takeoff "M*U*S*H" ("Messy Unwanted Shabby Heroes") set in the Yukon and "Fraidy Cat" - about a cat whose eight past lives come back to haunt him as he tries to hang on to his ninth.

Then came the guests! Like the Six Dollar and Ninety-Seven Cent Man (who kept falling apart every visit), Stogie Bear (a manic-depressive version of Yogi), Billy Bratson (who just yells "Sha-Zowie"! and turns into a hero that isn't QUITE Captain Marvel) and a genie who blinked her eyes and granted wishes that weren't quite as good as expected.

Must have been too weird, because I don't remember hearing much about that show after its initial run. Oh well, for what it's worth, I thought it did fine to entertain impressionable 10 year-olds who would later grow up to write about long-forgotten kids shows on IMDB.

Nine stars for "Uncle Croc's Block".

Now why don't they show THIS on Nick at Nite's TV Land?
