    According to wikipdia, the show first went into production with Louie Anderson cast as Cousin Larry. Did they film an unaired pilot with Louie? If so, is it included on the DVD set?

    So a fat guy who yells instead of a curly guy who's neurotic?

    I prefer Cousin Larry.

    It's just the Dance of Joy montage on it. They didn't mention any additional features on Tvshowsondvd speaking of which even though I have the original episodes, it's sad that they didn't put more extra stuff on the sets like the ABC Promos (of which there were many for first two seasons). Those Louie pics are something. He is a funny guy but could never pull the physical parts of the show Mark did.

    I believe they were officially homosexual in the original pilot
