Total Lunacy
4 June 2000 | by fiascofilmscoSee all my reviews

I've only seen a single show since the originals ended in 1963. It featured rewrites of The Hunchback Of Notre Dame (which became Dinky Dunstun, Boy Cheerleader) and The Hands Of Orlak (Hands Across The Fee,) and a couple of other bits. The guest "star" was Annette Funicello, who introduced Hunchback.

The writers of this show literally destroyed the original story lines of these films and replaced them with wildly funny scripts using the Jay Ward stable of sound effects, and the talents of Bill Scott, and June Foray.

The show I saw had a tag for "next weeks show" featuring the "Adventures of Harry and Ozziet" using footage from silent classics.

I'd like to see these shows again. I believe they were ahead of their time.

UPDATE: 9/12/2009:

I have just purchased a set of these shows from Amazon. The transfers look great. BUT, only episodes 1-6 are really good. After #6, they didn't do parodies of an entire movie again, like what they started doing at the beginning. I hate to say it, but, some of the episodes just aren't funny. Towards the end of the series, they tended to use the same snips of film over and over again.

I'd almost bet that someone in the higher-ups at Desilu told Jay Ward to 'tone it down a bit.' For this, I am sorry, as they had a good thing going there.
