The show that FOX forgot
A look back on a very underrated show
1999 was a big year for FOX. They had The Simpsons, Family Guy, Futurama, King of the Hill, and that's mostly what everyone remembers, but what about the 5th show at the time? That's right, The PJs
The PJ's is about a group of people who live in the housing projects in Detroit, Michigan. It stars Eddie Murphy as Thurgood Stubbs, the super intendent (Or, "Super" as the other characters say it.) of the projects, He also lives with his wife, Muriel Stubbs, voiced by Loretta Devine. This show has it's own page here on Retro Junk, so there isn't much of a need for me to explain it. All I'm really trying to say is that this was a great show, but only lasted on FOX for 2 seasons, fortunately it got picked up by the WB for a 3rd. The show currently airs on Cartoon Network's late night programming block, Adult Swim. 6 episodes (that were never aired in the U.S. before) are currently being shown on Adult Swim every saturday up until December 5th. These episodes started airing on October 31st (Halloween). so basically, if you wanna see new episodes of The PJs, just watch Adult Swim on saturdays!
P.S. I remember throwing a penny in a wishing fountain at the mall, and wishing that FOX would replace American Dad with new episodes of The PJs, because I see American Dad as more of an attempt to make Seth MacFarlane a household name, Just like The Cavalcade of Cartoon Comedy, or The Cleveland Show.
Oh, Seth. When will You learn.
