Episode Summary

Mining Accident

Al is trying to write a song about cheese when some miners crash through a wall in his living room. Al believes that the miners are very rude, and they begin to fight and shout at each other. The Hooded Avenger tells Al to quit fighting, and they do quit by watching some TV. They have fixed the wall when a bolder comes crashing down through it. Al makes some split-pea fudge to keep the underground rats away, therefore, making the wall "fixed." Because of this, the miners decide to help Al with his cheese song.

  • As much as I love Weird Al...

    It's not like I went in expecting much. I figured it would be something like "Pee Wee's Playhouse" only not as good. Even if I do like Weird Al and Paul Reubens equally, I knew that this wasn't going to be as good.

    I'm sort of treating these early words as a pilot episode or even a show review but the reason is that it was the first episode of "The Weird Al Show" that I have ever seen. Anyways, more on the episode. I found the plot to be nothing special, I know it's a kids show but even for kids I'm sure it wasn't that entertaining.moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Show Announcer: Could it be that Al and the miners have learned to get along, or will a wall come between them?

    • Al: (Telling the Hooded Avenger about the miners) How could you like them? They're uncivilized and philthy and crude!
      Hooded Avenger: Oh, they're just different. Maybe if you just reached out and got to know them, you might actually learn how to appreciate them a little bit.

    • Al: (To the miners) In the future, I'd appreciate it if you refrained from gambling in my home. It's in inferior, uncultural form of entertainment.
      Miner: Inferior? I hate to break it to you, pal, but accordion-based song parodies aren't exactly the highest form of entertainment either.

    • Miner: Hey, buddy, are we near the mine?
      Al: The what?
      Miner: The coal mine. According to this map, it should be around here somewhere.
      Al: I don't know anything about a coal mine, but this is my home and I really didn't need a side entrance.

    • Al: Hey! don't you miners have any manners?
      Miner: I don't know. Maybe you can lone us some!

    • Bobby: Hey, Al, I've got a question. Where does dirt come from?
      Al: I don't know, Bobby. But I can tell you where it goes. Onto them. (Points to the miners)

    • Channel Hopping Announcer: Today, on Phil Frye the Science Guy, Phil teaches us all about grass.
      Phil Frye: Grass is green!
