"Philosophy Street" is a new attraction from the Children's Television Workshop, in which the kiddies at home are taught the difference between idealism and realism, and Mr. Willis the grocer (John Candy) helps Herbie the puppet pick up a fresh supply of materialism. Elsewhere, "A Fistful of Ugly" (introduced in promo form in the previous episode) stars The Sheriff With No Name (Harold Ramis) and some other guys. Additional highlights from this week's episode include "Good-Bye America," with Geraldo Rivera (portrayed by Joe Flaherty) discussing Roman Polanski's remake of Duck Soup with the nation's top critics; and in the call-in show "Feedback With Moe Green," we are introduced to the inimitable Guy Caballero. (Or at least to Guy's disembodied voice!)
