In the late Nineties, Fox Broadcasting and Saban International purchased the Christian Broadcasting Network's Family Network and (ahem) rechristened it the Fox Family Channel. It was meant to compete against Nickelodeon with line-ups of Saban properties like Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. They even made their own TV movies, like this one, which also has the National Lampoon brand attached to it, which is why we watched it. Co-host Carl and I love watching full-length National Lampoon movies on YouTube, but this has to be the first NatLamp movie we've seen aimed for kids.
Thomas F. Wilson ("Biff from Back to the Future") and Karim Prince ("Blue Power Ranger") star alongside check cashers George Kennedy, M. Emmet Walsh, and Brion James.
