I'm Herman's intellect. Without me he couldn't hold his job, pay his rent or tie his shoes.
I'm Herman's sensitivity. Without me he wouldn't feel tenderness, honesty or love - the good things in life.
Oh! I'm Herman's anxiety and I keep him out of trouble - and believe me, there's trouble *everywhere*!
I'm Herman's lust. Without me he'd miss out on all the good stuff. Y'know, fun, food - babes!

I was too young when I watched this show to really give a true critical assessment of it, but it definitely entertained me. Most of the jokes went over my little head, but the ones I did get were quite funny to me. I remember being especially disgusted by the character that represented Herman's lust and a bit annoyed by the feminine character in his brain. It was a clever idea, and I wish that it had a longer run.
