Witty and clever humor on a Saturday morning
22 March 2005 | by (Capitola, CA) – See all my reviews

I recall watching this show and finding it much funnier than the live series. Gordon, Rick and Skip were like a furry Three Stooges, getting into bizarre and hilarious predicaments, while the bird and Curtis taunted. Bob is a semi-competent inventor and Flo the wise, yet not clichéd mother.

Episodes included Larson Petty's attempts to take over Melmac, an attempted invasion by shrimp, Pizmo the robot at the planet's center, Gordon moving out, preservation of the west feldman smulk bird, a visit to the racetrack at south toaster, among others. Something fun and entertaining while most other cartoons were little more than half-hour advertisements for toys.

This would be a great set to own on DVD.

Edit: I have picked up a couple Alf DVDs - ALF: Animated Adventures - 20,000 Years in Driving School and Other Stories & ALF Tales: ALF and the Beanstalk and Other Classic Fairy Tales. Animated Adventures I swear have been edited. I have several of these on old VHS tapes and will compare, but could swear there was a Birdland song in Birdman of Melmac.
