Kurt Paul is listed in the end credits as Paul Bearer (the cemetery caretaker), however, his scene was cut from the final version of the pilot which aired on network television, but it remains in the unfinalized workprint of the pilot and can been seen online on YouTube. See more »
This pilot for a never-materialized series (another reviewer is incorrect in referring to it having a run of only 2 episodes....this, the pilot, was the ONLY episode ever made. It was never picked up or approved as a weekly series.) is a lot of corny, goofball fun. It was a perfect situation for Anthony Perkins, and the rest of the cast is hysterical throughout, often stealing scenes right out from under Perkins, especially Joshua Miller as Edgar, and Pam Matteson as Miss Blasco (who seems to echo Madeline Kahn had Kahn been playing the character). It would have been interesting to see what other stories would have been created had this delightful concept been given a chance.
