    Did anybody else see this?
    It wasn't original voices or newley created clay animation, but it sure was funny

    I don't know, Davey...

    Seems odd to have the characters of a religious program (even in animated form) pushing commercial products. Doesn't that seem self-defeating? Art Clokey's other famous duo, Gumby and Pokey would work better...

    Now, Alf, on the other hand, I can have fun with. He's back - and not in Pog form(!)

    Hmm...my spider senses are telling me that I can expect to have contributed to a closed thread...

    I was shocked to see this one. I used to watch this show as a kid, somewhat unaware of it's religious background. It was funny from a nostalgic perspective to see the characters in a significantly different situation. I'm still amazed they got clearance. Money will buy a lot of things...

    I saw the advert, it was pretty funny. I fondly remember watching the duo as a kid in the seventies and I too wasn't aware at the time that it had a religious theme. They were nice little morality plays (don't lie, don't steal, don't hurt others) and not a bad thing to teach the kiddies.
