Dim, fond memories
5 January 2003 | by caj-5See all my reviews

I also remember seeing this show, but vaguely. Where I was -- in Cincinnati, Ohio -- it came on Sunday mornings. I, of course, watched it religiously because back in those days there were no Sunday morning cartoons and stuff (only Wonderama and U.S of Archie), and there was always serious withdrawal after the beloved Saturday morning cartoon binge.

I'm sure Storch and Tucker must have felt like they were at the tail end of their careers, but they were the dudes to me then. And the gorilla? I don't know, I just bought it at the time. I don't remember much of the show, but I remember really liking it. Would love to watch it again just to see how much I recognize.
