Description by OLDIES.com:

Before Pee Wee Herman ... before even Saturday Night Live ... there was "The Uncle Floyd Show," a no-budget daily variety program that made cheap TV funny (or made funny TV cheaply). Unrehearsed, unscripted, unedited and unbudgeted, "The Uncle Floyd Show" blended vaudeville, slapstick and burlesque with unexpected, often anarchic results. In the primitive pre-cable television era of the 1970s, this quirky offbeat pseudo-kiddie show presented an off-the-wall collection of oddball characters and comic craziness that the kiddies never understood - but the college crowd loved. Uncle Floyd is assisted by his wisecracking puppet pal Oogie and supported by an assortment of showbiz misfits in ridiculous comedy bits and assorted wackiness the likes of which have never been seen on TV before or since.

Product Description:

In 1974, "Uncle" Floyd Vivino began broadcasting a low-budget television show spoofing children's TV programs of the 1950s. Blending vaudeville, slapstick, and burlesque, the daily variety show soon earned a cult following among adults for its wacky brand of irreverent sketch comedy featuring unique characters like Don Goomba and Eddie Slobbo. This compilation offers the best of The Uncle Floyd Show in all its unscripted, unrehearsed, and unedited glory.

Gone with the times Movie Lover: from White River Junction, VT US -- December, 10, 2009

What was camp then is now chump. Maybe it is because I've gotten older or maybe the death of Soupy Sales ended the era in my mind; this sense of having fun is dead and gone


Floyd! Floyd! My Wife Gladys Escaped! Movie Lover: from Los Angeles, CA US -- June, 15, 2006

Okay, this is not for everyone. But this show is a big part of my high school years growing up in New Jersey.

The Uncle Floyd Show is no-budget local TV at its best, not even half a step up from cable access. It's a "kiddie show for adults." Many similarities to Soupy Sales TV shows, and to someone who followed in Floyd's wake, Pee-Wee Herman. That should give you an idea of what to expect. Puppets, corny jokes, vaudeville, slapstick comedy, goofy characters, piano music, Tin Pan Alley, all hold sway. There's an occasional ribald bit here and there, but there's plenty of unhinged fun here for older kids and adults too.
