i want it back!
11 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

i love the busy world of Richard scary and i think that it should be put back on t.v for the younger viewers. I, for one was a big fan of the show when i was younger and i do miss it being on t.v. sometimes my friends talk about that show and how much we used to love it and miss it dearly. we all would like to see the show back on television so we could all watch it again. I don't know about you other viewers and i really do not understand why they do not want to see it again or why they think it was useless. I really don't think shows are useless. I just think that they may be useless to me but very useful to other people, but then again that's just my opinion.
