When David left the series for awhile, boy did they improve it when Johnathan Galkin joined Hey Dude.
As problem nephew Jake, he's a slacker like Ted. However, just like AC Slater of Saved By The Bell, he's an accomplished drummer!
Jake's first scene was riding on Homer's hay bailing truck, playing tribal rhythm music on his drums (or as he calls them, his tubs). Of course that drives Uncle Ben crazy & his cousin Buddy to shirk, he was very cool. Also, Melody mentions about The Brady Bunch. She would later portray Marcia in both movies.
I wonder if AC Slater challenged Jake to a drumoff, who would win the Battle of the Drummers?
