What does a clay audience's laughter sound like? Turns out it's a lot like the obnoxious canned chuckles last heard on, say, Charles in Charge. Strange as it is to pair a stop-motion animated comedy with a laugh track, it wouldn't be so bad if the jokes were funny. Instead this tween-targeted series, which follows dentist dad Glenn Martin (voiced by Kevin Nealon) and his family's RV adventures, gives us a prostitute joke right off the bat. And it's a really bad sign when a show resorts to ye olde visiting-the-Amish plotline in its very first episode.
