NBC should bring back 'Sammy'
15 April 2001 | by jellyneckrSee all my reviews

I feel bad for David Spade. He makes the best primetime cartoon on television then after only a few episodes NBC cancels it for good. It was an entertaining show about a TV star and his wacky family. Sure, it could of used better voice casting, but it was a funny, heartwarming cartoon for the family. Being a David Spade fan, I think NBC really ripped him off.
