      ummm I don’t know. ACK! *tries to dodge the slime*

    2. NazTb0y says:

      well, South Park and Family Guy have done a lot that’s similar. You are right, however, that you truly couldn’t do this on Nickelodeon anymore. I seriously hate Nick. It got it’s balls ripped off and became so goddamn sanitized.

    3. SuaveGemini says:

      Moose was her real life child nickname cause she was ironically small for mer age. At least thats’s what the Slime TV website and interviews said.

      i agree.. they are very controversial shows – however, using kids in skits that are controversial is something you really couldn’t do on television 🙂

    5. NazTb0y says:

      you’ve got a point there, but you should check out the Pokemon episode in Season 3 of south park. The spoof Alabama Man commercial uses kid actors who do and say things that are at least as controversial as anything that took place on this show. The Christmas episode in Season 1 has another spoof commercial that uses kids for a Mr. Hanky doll, which is quite risque.

    6. laurenmargaux says:

      and in turn, i see your point, but also south park does not have a child-dominated cast on a regular basis.

    7. DeleteThisMF says:

      Well yea, of course THOSE shows push the envelope, but I mean kids shows on like you said pussified Nick. This stuff is racy in todays kid show standards

      Its not as controversial as current shows, such as South Park, certain episodies of King of the Hill, Family Guy and American Dad.

      Ross: I’m going to give her a piece of my mind!

      Moose: Sure you can spare it?

    14. matthew3alex says:

    15. IVoNzIpPeRI says:

      This show was awesome!It help take the anxiety of divorce and made it funny!I only wish that they would release it in a dvd set! I would love for my children to watch it!

      @deesyphrr My mother is the touchiest woman in the world,but she never said boo about us watching this.I never thought of the Firing Squads skits as inappropriate at the time,but this show sure was cutting edge for the 80’s.

    20. pyrogyra72 says:

      @IVoNzIpPeRI If they did, they’d edit it to death. I say re run these shows on Comedy central. (complete and Uncut!)

    21. NJburbsSeeker says:

      Les Lye RIP played every adult, and always made me laugh.

    22. ultimatemegadeath says:

    23. ultimatemegadeath says:

      I’ll Keep Lisa! >;D

    24. KaristaSwiss says:

      53 is a classic WAIT A MINUTE 😮

    25. HawkfanMom1981 says:

      They need to have a channel with all the old nick shows from the 80s. The 80s were the best. TV was worth watching back then unlike now. You’re better off buying DVDs and watching your own movies nowadays. Anyone know if these episodes are on Blue ray DVDs?
