The Weird Al Show

Show Summary

The Weird Al Show was a show that used to air Saturdays on CBS. The show included "Weird Al" Yankovic, The Hooded Avenger (Brian Haley), Madame Judy (Judy Tenuta), J.B. Toppersmith (Stan Freberg), and Al's pet, Harvey the Wonder Hamster. By FCC requirement, the show was educational, but it did have a lot of Al's very weird humor, and some guest stars and musical acts. Unfortunately, in January 1998, CBS cancelled all shows in the Saturday Morning lineup. The show was released on DVD on August 15, 2006.

Theme Song Lyrics Oh, this is a story 'bout a guy named Al, And he lived in a sewer with his hamster pal, But the sanitation workers really didn't approve, So he packed up his accordion and had to move To a city in Ohio where he lived in a tree, And he worked in a nasal decongestant factory, And he played on the company bowling team, And every single night he had a strange, recurring dream Where he was wearing lederhosen in a vat of sour cream, But that's really not important to the story.

Well, the very next year he met a dental hygienist With a spatula tattooed on her arm (on her arm), But he didn't keep in touch, then he lost her number, Then he got himself a job on a tater tot farm, And he spent his life savings on a split-level cave 20 miles below the surface of the Earth (of the Earth), And he really makes a mighty fine jelly bean and pickle sandwich For what it's worth.

Then one day Al was in the forest, trying to get a tan When he heard the tortured screaming of a funny little man. He was caught in a bear trap and Al set him free, And the guy that he rescued was grateful as can be, And it turns out he's a big-shot producer on TV, So he gave Al a contract, and what do you know? Now he's got his very own Weird Al Show!moreless
