I thought Jerry Lewis was unfunny before, now I'm even more convinced. I want the 8 min 59 seconds of my life back. I can't say I wasn't warned, though.

Oh come on now! There were many far worse cartoons created in the 80's... Little Rosie, The Gary Coleman Show, etc... history did have a habit of repeating itself when it came to Saturday Morning Cartoons!

This was Filmation, right? Had to have been. Has their signature licensed character + 1000 monkeys with paint brushes style.

Sounds like Rodd Keith did the opening theme song - which ain't a bad thing no how.

Yup, this was a Filmation product. Making things even more craptacular: Jerry's voice was provided by none other than David L. "Squiggy" Lander.

This is still not as bad as "Gilligan's Planet".

Don't be hatin' on Squiggy, man! He was in the Credibility Gap with Harry Shearer. In addition, the Lenny & the Squigtones LP has the first appearance of Christopher Guest as Nigel Tufnel.

Speaking of The Credibility Gap -- One of Lander's Gap characters was a Jerry Lewis knockoff named Freddie Herbie, a pompous old-school comedian who raised money to fight the dreaded disease... necrophilia.
Also, Gap member Harry Shearer is one of the few people outside Jerry's inner circle to have ever actually seen a rough cut of "The Day The Clown Cried." Ask him about it sometime.

I was by no means impugning Mr. Lander's other work (including his roles in both of David Lynch's TV projects), just signifying that his participation in this dreck makes it more interesting to watch. That's a backhanded compliment, I suppose.
Learning of his Freddie Herbie character takes the whole thing to a new level of craptacularity.

If you sit through all that you get to find out that cartoon Jerry Lewis' uncle is a Chinese detective.

And given Jer's work on the MDA Labor Day telethon, it's ironic that David L. Lander was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1984.

Hey, "Scote"! That's not Jerry Lewis. It's a cartoon! You may be confused. But that's pretty daring, coming out against Jerry Lewis. Congratulations! Yes, congratulations to one and all!

Why does One Ton Son have a bad cockney accent?
