Never should have been axed in such fashion...shame.
This show was actually pretty good. What can be said that hasn't already? Great cast and it's not ALL just one note fish jokes. There's a LOT but they're all throwaways and not considered big laughs that fall flat - that's a totally different thing. Even Don Knotts was up in this b*tch! Ritter was SUCH a talent - the guy SEEMS so simple on the surface people never really gave him his credit. He's done brilliant work and like John Candy he was never replaced.
This show show have been toned down by 5% (that's not much) just the hell's or damn's...maybe an innuendo here and there and place on sat afternoons or mornings even. Watching it NOW (like some many things looking back when you're older) well sure you could say it could be more complex in the mystery part but for a cartoon it works just fine.
It's not a classic as the 6 episodes stand, but it is something I would have watched - had I given it the chance. Anything that was done in prime time to combat the simpsons failed until King of the Hill so this never had a chance but after only 3 episodes how could anyone think anything else but that it sucked. Family Dog bombed and I think there was a cat show? LOL This was aimed to high and should have been marketed differently...could have sold some toys even.
I wished there were more episodes having just watched all 6. Such talent and such little faith? Fox is fickle..oh Capitol Critters! That was the other one lol
