WORST SITCOM EVER
2 October 2003 | by gbulmashSee all my reviews

At 35, this is the worst sitcom I can remember seeing in my entire life. Considering some of the stinkers to hit TV, that's a heck of a distinction.

The mixed puppet/human cast (some sort of bad Alf rip-off) didn't work. The characters were awful and the jokes were pitifully hackneyed. If they showed this on a TV in a prison, the convicts could sue for cruel and unusual punishment. It was that BAD.

Anyone who fondly remembers this was probably 4 years old when they saw it, because anyone over that age (or over that *mental* age) would be hard pressed to stomach one episode of this.
