I miss this show.
17 January 2007 | by See all my reviews

I remember when cable comedy held unpredictable gems like MST3K, early Pee-Wee and "the Higgins Boys and Gruber". Low key, offbeat and full of surprises (before cable comedy programming became the bland mush of stand-up and movies it is today) The host segments were unbelievably laid back - the boys just sat around the kitchen table sucking down coffee and cigarettes. The fat Higgins boy didn't look like he could walk a block. They made MST3K's Joel Hodgson (who created both shows) seem like a dynamo by comparison. And the content! Talking monkeys! A robot detective! (or was that another show - it's all a blur) Clutch Cargo! (er - well, it was darn funny at the time) I will bless them forever for showing kinescopes of Bob and Ray TV shows - a real treasure from the vault.

Bring it back on DVD!
