I have seen early material on this program, and all I can say is, it
promises to be one of the most unique and funny programs to hit
the airwaves in years.
It's directed by Frank Oz and written by two guys from the
Simpsons and is sort of a wacky cross between "The Addams
Family" and "The Waltons." It's kind of like a live-action Simpsons
in a way.
It's about a weird family -- not monsters like the Addamses, but
just plain weird. They're really close and live by old-fashioned
family values but they don't take any crap from anybody. In the
pilot, the whole family goes along to help the oldest son retrieve
his stolen skateboard.
It's loaded with physical comedy and sight gags and promises to
be unlike any of the dry, boring shows currently clogging up the TV.
I think it could easily become a phenomenon and people could be
walking around with Funkhousers T-shirts and lunchboxes before
you know it.
