You may be right! I may be crazy!

I found out that Season One of Dave's World comes out on DVD today. Does anyone except me remember this show? It was a sitcom that aired from 1993 to 1997, and it was based on Dave Barry's life and columns. Harry Anderson of Night Court fame starred as Dave. Here he is with the real Dave:

If you're new to my blog: Dave Barry has been my hero since I was about 12 years old. I base my life upon his teachings.

It was a very cute show, but I remember being disappointed that it was merely cute and not pee-your-pants funny like Dave's actual columns. I think I was the only person in America who actually watched it -- besides my family members and the few college friends I could trick into watching it. I have it in my Netflix queue, but I almost feel like I should buy my own copy, since I'm the only person in America who might consider buying it.

Remember when they totally ripped off that scene from a Brady Bunch episode? Where Dave was standing outside the house and talking to his kid inside the house? I think Dave was trying to teach his kid about safety and strangers. Good times.

It was a great show! The only bad part was Harry Anderson's terrible hair, which kept growing and growing. Call me crazy, but I liked him as Judge Harold T. Stone, with the tidy haircut, fedora hat, and crazy ties. When he tried to be shaggy like the real Dave, Harry's thick naturally wavy mane just looked plain awful. Otherwise it was hilarious! I still laugh just thinking about the security alarm episode.
