The Steven Banks Show was gone before it could be appreciated. It was the black sheep of PBS, but considering that the Peeb was programming nothing but McNeil/Lehrer and Ken whosit's Baseball, it's a wonder this oddity made it on the air.
It would never have made it on regular TV, but may have done well on HBO or Showtime.
I recall one ep when a character said something about the kid from "Lost in Space" and mispronounced his name. "Billy MUMMY" A second later, Bill Mumy walked in and tore the guy a new one for his ignorance.
There was the Chelsea Clinton/Veruca Salt comparison where Steven saved Chelsea's life at a carnival.
