  • Weird Al wants to get John Tesh on the air with him! Can he do it?! Maybe sort of! :lol:

    Weird Al Yankovich is one of those few performers who manages to make every piece of his work one of a great genius. Songs, music videos, concerts, cameo appearances in movies, even starring in a movie himself. Weird Al had conquered a lot and one of the few things missing on his resume was a star of a children's variety show. Although, there is something Weird Al might want to have given a second thought to. If you want your show to survive for more than one season, don't have your first musical guest be the Barenaked Ladies because it will Never go over well with the F.C.C. for obvious reasons! Weird Al did a lot better with this second episode and made sure he had a man with a respectable name with respectable talent come on the air: John Tesh! Of course, the way he comes on the air is a very funny one at that! And this episode even includes the debut of the one, the only, Fatman! With Harvey the Wonder Hamster! Weird Al is inempt at really being an effectual superhero, but what he lacks in great powers, he makes up greatly with funny humor! And that's what this show is all about: it might give you a moral, but it will be sure to give you a funny time as well! That's why this show has become a cult favorite! That's why I like it! :idea: Enough said, true believers! ;)
