Storyline

The Hudson Brothers--Bill, Mark and Brett--hosted this colorful and fast-paced Saturday morning comedy variety series aimed at children. Taped in Toronto, the show featured plenty of music, sketches, blackouts and one crazed emu puppet that attacked almost everyone in the cast. Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@soltec.net>

Kids entertainment with no agenda.
16 June 2019 | by Java_JoeSee all my reviews

There was a time when kids shows were made for children for the purpose of entertainment and only entertainment. This is one of them. Where other shows were all about teaching you moral lessons or the alphabet, this show just wanted to entertain and make you laugh.

Big Bill, Middle Mark and Baby Brett made up the Hudson Brothers. They were a musical act that enjoyed some moderate success with a prime time variety show played for laughs and then a year later moved it to Saturday mornings as a kids show. The format was pretty much the same with the exception of a lack of guest star. They'd play a musical number, there would be sketches, they'd sing another song and the ending with bad jokes before they all piled into the van and drove off.

It's an interesting little time capsule that brings back feelings of nostalgia. The entire series is out on DVD meaning it's possible to see it again or for the first time if you missed it when it first ran.
