10-Year Old Me thought this was Great
on July 16, 2013
For this short-lived TV series (13 episodes, never repeated as far as I know) to have made such an impression that I would immediately BUY IT 38 years later is quite amazing. Let's see what was going on in 1975. I was 10. I was watching Saturday Night Live's first season, I had gotten into Monty Python when the local PBS station started showing Flying Circus around that time, I don't think I had seen Blazing Saddles or Young Frankenstein yet so I wouldn't have known who Mel Brooks was. I guess I knew the Robin Hood legend so I could see the potential for parody. So after viewing a few of these episodes again, I can say that this purchase is well worth it. The gags are low-brow but still funny. Comedy veterans Dick Gautier, Dick Van Patten, and Bernie Kopell are great. I had forgotten how cute and funny Misty Rowe is. And so far, there have been some great guest stars - Sid Caesar, Dudley Moore (I also had forgotten how much I liked him), and Steve Landesberg (pre-Barney Miller but thanks to the Blazing Saddles DVD I know he had been in the pilot for the Blazing Saddles TV show [as the Gene Wilder character]). I still have another 7 episodes to watch but I'm already enjoying this so for a price under $20, I would say that's a good value!
