The Weird Al Show: The Complete Series

Genre: Comedy, Kids and Family; Starring: Weird Al Yankovic; Director: Keith Alcorn, Peyton Reed; Author: Tracy Berna, Zeke Kamm, Ron Weiner, Weird Al Yankovic; Status: In Season; MPAA Rating: In Season

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. EXTRAS The Saturday-morning episodes include commentaries with Yankovic and director Peyton Reed — plus guests like Emo Philips and Judy Tenuta — ripping on ”the network” and making R-rated jokes about their labor of love.
