Half-hour series comprised of shorter segments, all lampooning TV programming, all intentionally in bad taste. Included "Bachelor Pad," where love guru Chad Randolph offered tips to single dudes on how to score chicks while on a budget; "Bikini Beat," where police badges come on skimpy bathing suits; "The Handy Dan Show," where an incompetent do-it-your-self expert showed the TV audience why to never do it yourself; "Life Styles of the Poor and Unkbown," a glamorous look at the not-so-glamorous lives of the under-privileged; "Too Hip," about a pair of Simease twins joined at the hip, one neat, one sloppy, who serve as police detectives; "6 and 1/2 Minutes," an investigative news magazine uncovering stories not big enough for prime time; and "Gomer Hiel, N.A.Z.I.," following the madcap adventures of an inept soldier in the World War II German army, among others.
