TV Show Mash-Up

Recommended Posts

This cartoon was popular enough to be moved from Saturday morning to prime time, where it won an Emmy.  Then it was moved back to Saturday, with the addition of a new character, and was cancelled after a few episodes.

The voice actor for one of the main characters described the character's voice as 65% Orson Welles, 35% Vincent Price.  And he should know.  He also dubbed Vincent D'Onofrio's role as Welles in "Ed Wood."

The other main character's voice was modeled after Frank Spencer, the main protagonist of the BBC sitcom Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em (1973).

The main characters were unintentionally created by Bruce Timm, when creating caricatures of Producers Eddie Fitzgerald and Tom Minton.

Ok, some cooking shows.  Name any to take the round.

 

A) Michael Symon filled in for a season when Robert Irvine was fired for padding his resume.   RI returned for the next season, because he was interesting and Symon was not!

B) Guy Fieri zooms around,  stopping at little hole-in-the-wall eating establishments and other places,  and finds out how they make some specialty for which they are known.  The nickname for this show is "Triple-D".

C) 2 chefs assemble teams, then try to teach them to make dishes- after which the teams compete to make the dishes competently.

D) Buddy Velasco tried to do a standard cooking show.  This was the result- and it's not his best-remembered work....

E) Who decided that the best choice for a host for a cooking show is an actor-martial artist?  Mark DeCasco was the host for a while.

F) This show ended because Chris Cosentino, one of its hosts, was too injured from various  "eat the hot food" challenges to continue in his role.  Aron Sanchez and he normally had traveled from place to place,  trying to out-cook and out-race local chefs at some local dishes and local sites.  (The locals may be used to making the dish all the time, and definitely knew all the driving shortcuts.)  Both teams (of 2)   were issued a car and backpack for the episode (ignore the backpack's contents and risk losing the episode for lack of some critical tool.)   One season had Food Network chefs brought in to compete against Aron and Chris.

G) Walmart "Flavortown" is the setting for this cooking show.  Four chefs (professional or amateur)  compete to make a specified type of dish within the parameters, using the workstations provided and the contents of the Walmart "Flavortown" supermarket in which this show is filmed.

I actually used to watch "B" often.  Assuming I get the Ds in the right order, it's

Diners, Dives, and Drive-ins

"Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives."   But that's the CORRECT show.
