With the early 1990’s came the bizarre fad of famous stand-up comedians, who weren’t necessarily “kid friendly” getting greenlit for their very own Saturday morning cartoons. Comedians like Howie Mandel, John Candy, David Wayne, and the now kinda-problematic... Roseanne Barr and Bill Cosby. We're talking Camp Candy, Bobby's World, Little Rosey, Waynehead, Life with Louie, The Completely Mental Misadventures of Ed Grimley and a ton more shows that make us go wait a minute... whaaaaat?
