‘The Weird Al Show’ Coming to DVD
Catch a sneak peek at some of the highlights from The Weird Al Show DVD, which hits stores Aug. 15!
The children’s television series from quirky song parodist “Weird Al” Yankovic will be released on DVD Aug. 15. Though The Weird Al Show only aired for one season in 1997-1998, all 13 of its episodes will be turned into a three-disc box set that includes bonus footage like animation storyboards and a karaoke version of the show’s theme song. We can expect ukulele-fueled jams and spoofs of once-popular television sitcoms (one skit is entitled French Prince of Bel Aire and finds “Weird Al” sporting Napoleon garb). And, of course, like his recent satirical take on sensitive-guy rocker James Blunt (read more), there’ll be more cheeky versions of ubiquitous songs.
Talk: Do you think they should reinstate the The Weird Al Show with new episodes? COMMENT
