Cool Rock Music. A sick House Band. Hot Females. Hot Hero Sandwich was the ultimate show for a boy just fixing to get his pubes. they had some pointless comedy, but most of the sketches and songs had some valuable lessons on growing up; a favorite of mine was the song "Puberty", sang by the hilarious Puberty Fairy, an extremely hairy man dressed in a sparkly female fairy outfit, complete with star-tipped magic wand. ("This could be your lucky day ...PYEWW- BERRR- TEE!") seriously, it ruled when I was eleven, and I was so mad when 1981 rolled around and IT WAS GONE!!!!!!!!! My little sister used to make fun of the silly little grin that'd come across my face when the theme song played. First the drums "Bam-boom-Bam! Bam-boo-boom-Bam!" Then the "A" note on the bass "BomBomBomBom..." Then the hook "Yoooooou are my hero!" It's kinda sad that so few people remember it, but after all, it was just a stupid show, and there's more to life than TV. But as TV shows go, this was one of my favorites in my adolescent years, when everything else Saturday Morning had to offer seemed so "gay".
I ain't forgot "Hot Hero", the butt-kicking-est band of 1980 next to the Knack!
