Good Idea. Bad Idea.

What show is that from?! I’m going insane. There was a TV show that my brother and I used to love when we were younger. One of my strongest memories of being in Los Angeles with my family was how different, and superior, so much of the television programs I watched were. Not only does there seem to always be an episode of “Law and Order: SVU” on, but also the children’s programs were varied and so much better in the US when I was little.

So there was this show that I adored. I cannot for the life of me remember the name of it now. It had all sorts of sections to it – it was animated – and one of the sections was this part called “Good Idea. Bad Idea.” The good idea would be, for instance, someone changing a light-bulb with shoes on his feet and the bad idea would be someone changing a light-bulb with wet hands and getting electrocuted in an exceptionally amusing manner [at least to young children it seemed amusing]. Also, I don’t think I’m giving a very good example, because it was usually less crudely amusing and less educational, just very silly and funny.

There was also a section in this show of these weird crosses between animals and how they’d look while running a race.

Does anyone have any clue what I’m talking about or have I gone insane and imagined a whole TV show?

  1. Mr. Skullhead is a character from the animated television series Tiny Toon Adventures and Animaniacs. He originated on Tiny Toons when the character Elmyra Duff removed the tiny skull in the center of the hair bow she wears and imagined he had a show and created his theme song. Later he made the transition to Animaniacs. On Animaniacs Mr. Skullhead was a minor character, featured in the “Good Idea/Bad Idea” segments and starred in one full-length cartoon, “Skullhead Boneyhands,” a parody of the Tim Burton film Edward Scissorhands. Skullhead never spoke, and usually fell victim to some sort of catastrophe.
    Skullhead appears as an over-simplified skeleton (his head being a simple oval) wearing a blue suit with matching derby hat. He seems incapable of speech. His intro for his theme song ends with him being smashed, his own bones spelling out the title.

  2. Ok, I might be mixing up TV shows here. Good Idea/Bad Idea is really from Animaniacs as shown above [thank you, inidoops] but I’m thinking of yet another show, a really old one I think that only showed reruns when I was a kid… Hm. I guess I’ll just keep going crazy.
