    I was just reading the Home Movies credits one night cuz i love the music, and then i saw at the end before the show that burns and burns thing, it said "Science Court inc" at the bottom and it just brought back a memory similar to me remembering Larry and Steve, a show made by the family guy guy.

    anyway ever see/remember it?

    I saw it. Good show... had the same quirky humor I loved about Dr. Katz and Home Movies. Seems like it'd come on super early, but I caught it a few times and thought it was very clever.

    I vaguely remember Science Court or as it was also known for some reason, Squigglevision from Disney's One Saturday Morning. I remember a character named Joe Schmoe and I also remember this show was where I heard my favorite word of all time for the first time: Behoove, which means that something would be in your best interest if you did it.

    "It would behoove me to buckle my seatbelt on the highway because I don't want to get a ticket."

    Yes I remember Science Court. In 1997 the ABC affiliate in Seattle aired the show on Saturday mornings at 11:30, or last call for kids stuff before the noon hour, the offical end of Saturday morning.

    I thought it was very entertaining, using scientific principals to solve a court case each episode. Very funny banter between the smart lady defense lawyer and the clueless gentleman prosecutor. The best part was the lady Judge, think she was voiced by Paula Poundstone the comedian. During oral arguments the Judge would be doing her nails!




    Although well produced the show lasted only one year and I'm guessing low ratings? I've got to ask this; does it seem to anyone that the last cartoon of Saturday morning has the mark of doom upon it? I always get a downer feeling at the 11:30time slot, just like on Christmas morning. Call it the "It's Over" feeling.

    The judge and the dimwitted lawyer were great. I remember an episode where said lawyer drops his pants in court. The judge then said that he's the only lawyer she knows who could drop his pants and still maintain the same level of dignity.

    That's a great line. Love the way the prosecution lawyer was the brunt of jokes and his arrogant stupidity left his ego unbursed. This show is a hallmark of excellent writing. Too bad it ran only one season.

    Argh, it was "credibility," not "dignity," now that I think of it. Still a great line, though.

    Even though the show was more "kid friendly" I thought it was every bit as funny as "Home Movies".
