The eleventh episode is the best so far; for once the main plot is as funny as the miscellaneous bits

Today's lesson: "Whenever you are in any type of competition, it is always important to play fair."

What's on Al TV? Fred Huggins makes one of his puppets vomit. Tony Maloney is a too loose-limbed exercise show host.

For once, the main plot is as funny as the miscellaneous bits, partly because Jack Plotnick as Uncle Ralphie is pretty funny. By the way, nothing is wrong with your DVD's audio. Radish's song about "little pink stars" was bleeped out by the censors in the original broadcast.
