Where can I find this?
25 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember watching FTV on Saturday mornings. I think my favorite character was Ramone with the big pompadour hair.

One of my favorite skits was Mark McCollum as John Denver singing "Sunshine on my Shoulder". Well when they pull the camera back, sunshine is on his shoulder: it's the heavyset guy in a sun suit sitting on his shoulder!

Loved it. They would interpret the songs exactly how they sound.

You know videos rarely went with the storyline of the song. Is it possible to find clips or even DVD's of this great show?

Why does a comment have to be 10 lines long? That's stupid.
