Nice Reuben-lite collection by author interviewing 200 people from cast, crew, talent agent to CBS management on the behind-the-scene gossip & office politics on taking a risk & making the big budget children show & the toll on actor physically & mentally.
I wasn't die hard fan of Peewee Herman. However, I was curious on big budget bigger personnel nationwide show that played homage to local children shows.
Phil Hartman was first season sidekick cast member. Reuben steamed rather than thrilled Phil jumped ship to Saturday Night Live? Whooboy!
