Storyline

In this spin-off of the TV Funhouse cartoons on SNL, our host Doug (Doug Dale) hosts a show on a set that resembles Blue's Clues if it wasn't computerized. He picks a theme for the day (Caveman Day, Western Day, Spaceman Day, Mexicans Day) and encourages his "Anipals" (His animal puppets) to do stuff for the day that corresponds with the theme. Of course, they never do and get themselves in crazy situations like going to a Tijuanese Bordello and Doug is stuck on the set all alone. There's also Robert Smigel cartoons and mock-educational films! Written by Me

Robert Smigel is so cool!
10 December 2005 | by (Long Beach, California) – See all my reviews

stars: Doug Dale as Host Doug and puppet Jeffy the duck. Robert Smigel as Fogey, Rocky the lobster, Xabu and Triumph the insult comic dog. Dino Stamatopoulos as Whiskers and Chickie. Jon Glasser as Hojo the turtle. Dave Juskow as Larry the mosquito.

Okay, this is a weird show..let me tell you! It's host is Doug, a stereotypical children's show host that lives in a house with several puppet animals called the Anipals. Doug is totally G-rated, but the Anipals cuss and drink and do all kinds of bad things. While there was the plot with the Anipals, there are also short films. Its a sketch show too. Some of the sketches include, Fetal Scooby Doo, Black Sabbath cartoon, Porn for Everyone, Mischivous Mitchell(spoof of Dennis the Menace), Ambiguously Gay Duo and many others. The sketches were cool, considering they were sometimes cartoons, sometimes real life and sometimes they were clay animated. My personal favorite sketch was Joecamal, a cigarette based spoof of Pokemon. TV Funhouse was a great show that some find offensive and bad, but was so funny! Based on the short cartoons featured on Saturday Night Live, which were also written by Robert Smigel.

rating-TVMA. 8 episodes my rating-B plus.
