Pitching Inventions to Andrew Dice Clay on 'Raising Hope' (VIDEO)

Andrew Dice Clay, 'Raising Hope' - 'Bro-Gurt'Andrew Dice Clay and Patton Oswalt partnered up to provide a memorable guest appearance on 'Raising Hope' (Tue., 9:30PM ET on FOX). Ultimately, it turns out Clay was little more than the Great and Powerful Oz to Oswalt's Wizard. Yes, it was as weird as that sounds.

The premise was simple enough: The family decided to try to create investments that Clay would endorse and help them take to market. But it turned out the entire thing was a scam, so nobody was getting a fast ticket out of their lives.

But Jimmy got something perhaps even more valuable. He got to take Sabrina off that pedestal he's kept her on, after realizing that she's not perfect. In fact, her handle idea for his baby mop was absolutely terrible, and he finally stood up to her and said so.

Obviously, this won't hurt them in the long run. We all know these two crazy kids are going to wind up together, it's just a matter of how long it takes. So instead of worrying about them, we sat back and enjoyed the crazy 'Wizard of Oz' ending.

As cliche as it was seeing Oswalt anoint the group one by one with brains a heart and courage, it was all worth it to see Maw-Maw as the Wicked Witch of the West in the end. The coda at the end where the family revealed that they'd never seen the movie answered away any plausibility questions we might have had with the scene -- or at least from the point of view of them recognizing what was happening was a direct take from the film.
