Bong-spilling funny stuff!!!
25 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember this from when my sister had HBO back in '83. It was WAY too funny then & I'm sure would still be today. Paul Ruebens, Elvira, Edie McClurg aka Mrs Herb Mendenhall. All hilarious comics.

WHERE CAN WE BUY THIS COMEDY CLASSIC!?!?!? It's hard to believe that you can get ever how many seasons of "Perfect Strangers" on DVD but you can't find this anywhere! There was some guy selling bootlegs back in 2005 according to Google. Maybe they'll read this page & re-issue it. HBO??? You hear me??

"Joo are a very beautiful woman. What is your name?? My name is Ramone Azteca. This is the Ramone Azteca portion of the show." This and many many more joys await you!
