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
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.
I remember two things about this show besides how much I liked it. They
are: "Madame Poughkeepsie," a fortune teller that Gordon would visit;
and the episode with the Boulliabaseball game, where fish were used
instead of balls. The "cat" problem became quite severe after the sixth
inning on hot days for reasons you can probably imagine.
It is definitely a show for a more mature audience than little kids, and should be considered as one of the early examples of the animation renaissance that "Ren and Stimpy" and "The Simpsons" started. If it ever becomes available on DVD, I will camp out at the store to get my copy.
