  • An extremely unique cartoon series about Ed Grimley and his zany crew of friends and aquaintances. Full of catch-phrases and amazing voice work from many of Martin Short\'s talented SCTV alumni. Probably not for everyone, but brilliant in its own right.

    I thought I was the only person on the planet who remembered this show. Well, besides my friend Christine who was my only highschool friend who shared the sense of humour necessary to \'get\' this wonderful show. I still giggle when thinking of some of the great lines. In particular, the songs stick in my head. Who couldn\'t laugh at \'On a pretty decent day\' or \'Don\'t leave us Mrs. Frebus\'? Once upon a time I collected these on video (remember BETA anyone?) but alas, I\'ve no idea where the tape ended up. I would LOVE to see them again. If anyone ever learns of their release on DVD, please drop me a line. I\'ll be first on the pre-order list. I suppose I can\'t really explain the attraction, but I think wacky comedy, with intelligent dialogue has always appealed to me. I wish Ed had been hatched in today\'s world of 500+ channels. I\'m sure he could have found a permanent home along side the likes of The Simpsons, SouthPark or even SpongeBob. Ed\'s adventures ended all too soon. I just hope I\'ll get a chance to call up Christine, and have her over for a giggle at Ed\'s expense in the not-too-distant future.
