TV Shows - D.C. Follies

This was Syd and Marty Krofft's foray into political satire, and appealing to a more grown up audience after spending most of the 1970s doing children's shows. Great stuff, starring Fred Willard as a live action bartender serving puppets of various famous politicians and celebrities of the time.

1 Yes, well, at the time this aired, I would have known little to nothing about British programming. The puppets were incidental to the actual jokes being told, which really made the show. Case and point, I hated "Land Of Confusion" and thought Genesis should worry about their own problems on their own side of the pond instead of focusing on what they perceived as ours by dissing our President and his wife. Even without that, I doubt the British are able to lampoon American politics the way Americans can. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on February 20, 2013, 1:40 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 AFAIK, this show was just a ripoff of Britain's "Spitting Image". The Genesis Land of Confusion video used the Spitting Image puppets. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on January 20, 2013, 4:18 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Didn't this show get its start after the Genesis video in which many of these puppets appeared? ("Well, beddy bye boes time again") -- Submitted By: (John63btf) on January 14, 2013, 6:16 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

Great stuff, starring Fred Willard as a live action bartender serving puppets of various famous politicians and celebrities of the time. I often wonder if this show didn\'t have much of an audience because grown ups didn\'t want to watch a \"Syd & Marty Kroft\" show, while kids weren\'t getting the sofisticated humor. I found a similar effect on Malcolm In The Middle......humor geared toward grown people who may not want to watch a show about kids. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 21, 2012, 11:52 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
