We gave it a B

After the success of Saturday Night Live‘s ”TV Funhouse” segments, Robert Smigel hatched this short-lived, off-color variety show, which approximates Pee-wee’s Playhouse minus all good vibes. The conceit: Host Doug Dale gamely introduces each episode’s theme, then his foulmouthed ”anipals” abandon him for, say, a cockfight or a brothel. Onslaughts of scatological and sexual humor follow. Pitch-perfect cartoon parodies like ”Fetal Scooby-Doo” and ”Wonderman” might attract tykes, but beware: Even the EXTRAS — blue episode commentaries and outtakes — are strictly adults-only fare. B
