TV Funhouse coming to DVD!
No, not the TV Funhouse from Saturday Night Live (that's already on DVD, a best of). I'm talking about the short-lived Comedy Central series that that Robert Smigel did in 2000-2001. Paramount has announced that the DVD is coming in December.
If you've never seen the show, it was truly one of the more bizarre TV shows we've ever seen on television. It took the form of a kids shows hosted by Doug Dale and his "Anipals," really crass, creepy puppets. Each show had a "theme," such as "Western Day" or "Christmas Day" or "Astronaut Day."
I can't wait to see this show again, because I remember being slightly disappointed in it, that it wasn't as funny as it should have been (though I find the SNL TV Funhouse and Triumph The Insult Comic Dog hysterical). Maybe I just wasn't in the right mood when it came out, so I'll check it out again.
Lots of guest stars on these shows, including Bob Odenkirk, Robert Goulet, John Ritter, and Hootie and the Blowfish.
