This was a funny Show
17 August 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Back when MTV was stupid, yet still not compeletly moronic this show was on for a while. It was just a bunch of wacky characters put together on television. Alex Winter plays a variety of crazy characters including Eddie the Flying Gimp (who doesn't speak a word if I remember correctly), Willard Shrek ( a guy who works for hours at a convience store and gives a show to a security camera, fueled on caffine pills and beef sticks), the burrowing bishop, and one with a aged comedian named Wisey Wisenstein who is partnered up with Sinead O'Conner. Another character was Lockjaw, a cop who stepped on a rusty nail and now has lockjaw and can only yell at people.

He would make fun of family shows by having them viciously fight each other then have the wacky neigbor come in the middle and cry out in pain. "Who took my beloved vira and stuffed her in the trash?" THe dad just raises his hand as if he were guilty of going 30 in a 25. The old man looks as if he's about to break down and attack the father then breaks out in laughter and hugs. "She was old and baggy anyway." Of course this show as called 'The Huggins Family'.
