The greatest kids show of any era!
4 April 2008 | by mfricharSee all my reviews

"Hot Dog" was an incredibly funny show as well as educational because of the frequent contributions of Woody Allen, Jonathan Winters and JoAnne Worley (of 'Laugh In' fame). These folks provided hilarious improvisational commentary such as Woody Allen's musings when handed a piece of rubber for making a large school eraser that he described as something his mother would beat him with during the Jewish holidays - or - Jonathan Winters improv skits using a miniature baseball bat as a test tube, telescope, and other zany things. The Youngbloods (w/ Jessie Colin Young) were frequently featured - one instrumental song, in particular ("Prelude", I think from the Rock Festival LP and "It's a Lovely Day" from the same album) was an instrumental which played during 'how to' footage. One of the greatest shows ever - not just for kids. I was 17 and watched it every weekend. It was created by Frank Buxton and lasted one season - a tragedy.
