  1. Bearman

    haha…I got that. I wonder if anyone else knows that reference anymore though. Is it replayed on Nick at Nite??

  2. Bo Lumpkin

    Every neighborhood usually has a nut. It is kind of sobering when you find out that you are it.

  3. Bob

    Love it! “Odoripark.com: Come for the comics, stay for the ‘Perfect Strangers’ references!”

  4. SpilledInkGuy

    Now we are so happy, we do the Dance of Joy! :)

  5. Michelle

    LOL! I forgot about Perfect Strangers. Where was Balki from?

  6. DadaHyena

    They need Mr. Dink (from the old Nickelodeon cartoon “Doug”) as a neighbor. Not only does he got the “wacky” part down, but he’s also got gobs of disposable cash!

    “Very exthpenthive, Douglath! Huh-HYUCK!”

  7. dgriff13

    OMG, cousin Balki. That takes me back.

  8. jynksie

    Welp, if we’re gonna talk about my favorite show from the 80’s then we should begin with this: http://thessp.ning.com/video/perfect-strangers-boston-1

  9. Adrean

    That was one of the few captioned shows when I was a kid… The terrible music video they did for Balki rattled around my head for a loooong time. :P

  10. Chris

    Wow, I had no idea the Perfect Strangers reference would draw so much attention :)
    Bearman: Thankfully, it looks like there are enough of us old timers who remember…
    Bo: I’ve heard the same theory applied to families!
    Bob: Hey, you may have something there… “Now with 25% more 80s sitcom references!”
    SpilledInk: *applause*
    Michelle: Mypos, of course! :D
    DadaHyena: Hah! Doug… That was a long time ago, wasn’t it…
    dgriff13: I always felt bad for Cousin Larry, I confess.
    jynksie: That’s awesome! Saw the shot-for-shot comparison, too. Hilarious!
    Adrean: One thing you can take as comfort: I never intend to do a Full House reference…. I shudder to think!
