Bob Saget Goes on a Midnight Search for Sasquatch (VIDEO)

Bob Saget Goes on a Midnight Search for SasquatchBob Saget is an interesting guy. He's best known as the über-clean-cut star of 'Full House,' and the equally clean-cut host of 'America's Funniest Home Videos.' But outside the world of mainstream TV, he's known for something else. Mr. Saget is, in fact, a legendarily profane stand-up comic. It just goes to show that everyone has hidden depths.

His new series 'Strange Days With Bob Saget' is all about exploring hidden depths -- his own, and other people's. Bob tracks down weird subcultures, and shows a charming willingness to take part in the most bizarre activities.

On the latest episode (Tue., 10PM ET on AETV), Saget meets up with a group of hunters who spend their free time searching for Sasquatch -- or "Bigfoot," if you prefer. Bob is skeptical, but then -- while standing out in the forest in the middle of the night -- he hears a terrifying noise. And then he hears an even more terrifying one.

Saget is deep within Olympia National Park, along with members of the "Bigfoot Field Researchers Association." One of the hunters holds up a microphone, capturing an unearthly howling sound. Bob describes it as being a cross between "a wounded bat and a platypus in heat." His response to the sound is this: "I actually believe that a Sasquatch just howled at us. ... I heard it."

It's a spooky moment, with everyone caught in the green glow of night-vision goggles. It's also a moment which is instantly undercut -- when a "Field Researcher" farts right next to the enormous parabolic microphone. "You farted with a parabolic?" Bob says. Oh well. Still, as Bob tromps out of the forest, he closes with the following mock-poetic reflection. "I was two-for-two: a Bigfoot and a Big Fart. ... It was going to be hard to sleep, knowing that either one could strike again before dawn."
