A Very Funny Hodgepodge of Sketches,Good Music,Too
I watched this program when it first aired in 1982.I liked it so much that when it was rerun later that summer I taped it to watch again,because I was out when it aired again.I watched it several times over a two or three week period before taping over it.Probably the most significant thing about this show was it might very well have been the television debut of Pee Wee Herman.While I had already seen Paul Reubens' character in CHEECH & CHONG'S NEXT MOVIE,it was probably the introduction to a large segment of the world.The "Funky High School"segment was also funny,in a very weird way. Steve Martin starred in a hysterical sketch called "Auto Interruptus" as a radio talk-show addict who got a big surprise listening to his favorite show while he drove home from work.The music was supplied by Riders in the Sky & Devo's video for "It's a Beautiful World."I'd really like to see this one on DVD.All in all,a very entertaining piece of early '80's memories.
