The HoneyBunnies
20 April 2005 | by Momcat-1See all my reviews

This was an hysterical episode that starred Howard Hessman as a bitter cartoonist, enslaved by his adorable creations "The HoneyBunnies", and unable to do "serious" work. How he resolves his dilemma was one of the funniest things I've ever seen on network TV. I too wish they would release this show on DVD. It's probably disintegrated by now though. :( I don't have a lot more to say about this show, as I really only remember this episode. But with all the old shows being trotted out for resurrection on DVD, perhaps there is still hope. Maybe someday there will be a George Burns retrospective, and this could becomes part of it. I believe he was actually in a couple of the shows, though mostly he was the host, doing the same kind of commentary he did on the old Burns and Allen Show.
