Quotes

Al: But without my stuff, what am I? Just another cave-dwelling, accordion-playing, hamster-loving, TV show host. What a cliche!

The 13-episode series ends, appropriately enough, with Al's cave already emptied out

Today's lesson: When faced with a problem, use your creativity and imagination to help you solve it.

Weird Al returns from a cave dwellers convention to find that he's been robbed. Worse, he had bragged to all his friend that he hosts a TV show from his cave-home. But what kind of show can he put on when all his props and devices are gone?

Meanwhile, the professional wrestler Randy "Macho Man" Savage loses a match with Harvey the Wonder Hamster. Al destroys a newly formed civilization just to feed his face. Bobby the Inquisitive Boy gets to hear a story about Fat Man battling the Egg Man. The musical group All-4-One must sing a cappella. Gilbert Gottfried tries to prove that he's not imaginary.

What's on the TV Al borrows from The Hooded Avenger? A public service announcement gives advice on how to give directions. Dick Van Patten is chided for his execrable taste.

It seems appropriate that the last episode of this soon-to-be-cancelled series should take place in Al's empty cave. It looks as if the crew had prematurely torn down the set.

How good is this 13-episode series? Al Yankovic and his co-creators tried hard to overcome the limitations of time, budget, censorship and the network's insistence that this comedy show should have the pretense of being educational. Some funny stuff emerged from the series, but on the whole it's an adequate time-filler and not much more.
