The Weird Al Show: The Complete Series (2006)

Details Release Date: Aug 15, 2006; DVD Release Date: Aug 15, 2006; Movie Rated: Unrated; Genres: Comedy, Kids and Family; With: Weird Al Yankovic

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.
