The Completely Mental Misadventures of Ed Grimley

Martin Short teamed up with Hanna Barbera to turn his Ed Grimley character from Canada's SCTV into an animated series. Ed is "a sweetly nerdy guy who lives in a funky Victorian apartment with his goldfish Moby and clever rat Sheldon. Storylines include his encounters with the cranky Mr. Freebus, Ed's landlord; Miss Malone, his gorgeous neighbor; the Truly Remarkable Gustav Brothers - Roger and Wendell, identical twins who look nothing alike; and Ed's favorite television program, Count Floyd and his "Really Scaaary Stories Show." Ed's catchphrase is "I must say!"

Halfway through watching this on DVD for first time since it originally aired, and I'm bumping my rating up. This pre-Simpsons one-season wonder was maybe the first really solid evidence...
