The Award Winning Series

Featuring Live Interviews and Original Film Highlights

“Charlie Hustle”

“Best syndicated sports series on television.” — LA Times

Pete Rose, baseball’s “Charlie Hustle” has been smacking base hits, sliding head first, and winning for over three decades.

His individual accomplishments are highlighted by more that 4000 total hits, and his memorable 44-game hitting streak, a National League record and the second longest ever to Joe DiMaggio’s 56-game streak.

Rose puts everything he’s got — 110% — into every game. Rose’s enthusiasm and determination were contagious as he sparkled Cincinnati’s “Big Red Machine” to two World Championships, and the Philadelphia Phillies to another.

Pete has since rejoined his original team, the Reds, as player/manager, a fitting end to a career that includes every individual and team success one can imagine.

Pete Rose, a real competitor, and a Greatest Sports Legend.

It’s official. Gallagher, America’s most outrageous comic has gone Melon Crazy!

The first warning sign of Melon Craziness is a tendency to collect strange “melonabilia” like huge thirty foot watermelons, watermelon blimps, or three-piece watermelon suits. (And other very strange piece of melon matter.)

The second warning sign is a tendency to hang around with other crazy people like special guest comic Bill Kirchenbauer (Tony Roletti of Fernwood Tonight) who does impressions of xerox machines. And the third sign of melon craziness is the messiest Sledge-O-Matic demonstration of all time. Take home your copy today… and stand back! SPLAT!

At Last, A Cartoon-Super-Hero Who Really Uses His Head.

Jim (The Head) is an animated mutant super-hero with an insanely large cranium. A freak encounter left him with a problem. A big one: he’s got an alien named Roy living inside his oversized dome. Plus, he’s got the added headache of having to deal with an impending invasion of Earth by a fiendish army of evil parasitic aliens.

Jim and Roy are feverishly assembling the Anti-Invasion Machine, whose five pieces have been scattered throughout the world. Will Jim and his skull-dwelling companion have the skill to save the Earth? Only The Head knows.
