I remember a thousand Saturday mornings, eternal, brightly-colored, golden like Lewis Carroll's "golden afternoons," except in my memory it wasn't summertime. It was always those magical few weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
After five seasons (1989-1994), Joel escaped to Earth, and the mad scientists abducted the hunkier Mike (Mike Nelson above), who stayed on for ten seasons, until the series ended in 2004.
The riffs and interstitials often made homoerotic subtexts visible, and many of the movies featured extensive beefcake, but that's not enough to make my memory of the basic-cable farce "golden."
It is no wonder that the slow, ponderous final theme, played over the ending credits, always filled me with a profound sadness.
