The Weird Al Show: The Complete Series

Posted on

Weird Al Yankovic’s short-lived kids’ show dares to be stupid — witness cartoon superhero Fatman, eyeball armchairs, and candy corn on the cob. Pee-wee’s Playhouse comparisons are inevitable, but Al and friends (like Harvey the Wonder Hamster and other celebs) fall short of Paul Reubens’ subversively childish humor.
