On a previous very popular edition of Where You At Wednesday, we hipped you to some TV animals. This time, we are taking it a little further with some “fake” TV animals, and what happened to them. Check it out after the jumpy jump!!
Alf’s show stopped in 1990, but he has kept it moving with some random stuff and hella-merch sales. He starred in the ’96 TV movie “Project Alf” and in 2004 rocked out on TV Land with his own short-lived talk show. Surprisingly enough, though he has made appearances in tons of shows, his last appearance was in November 2007 on “The O’Reilly Factor” as TV Icon of the Week.
How do you make bocu money off a sock puppet? Ask Shari Lewis, she invented that shit! Okay, maybe not, but she did succeed at it rather nicely with Lamb Chop. Lamb Chop first appeared in 1957 and mostly appeared in Lewis’ music-comedy network show in the 60′s. However from 1992-1997, Lamb Chop had her own PBS show that was a hit for the channel. Shari Lewis died in 1998 from pneumonia while undergoing cancer treatment. However, her daughter Mallory has been known to resurrect the character and keep her going.
Mr. Floppy was the smoking and drinking bunny that lived in the basement on “Unhappily Ever After,” a relatively short lived sitcom. Only Jack, the father can hear or talk to him. Mr. Floppy was voiced by Bobcat Goldthwait and to date hasn’t made any appearances since the show’s last episode in 1999.
