I'm the only one old enough to remember this show from its original run, so I'll list some favorite moments:

  • Tokes resigning in disgust and Stokes immediately arresting him for possession.

  • The time they nailed that alderman for illegally keeping giraffes, and Tokes rode around on a giraffe.

  • When Stokes was dating Nurse Wendy and she gave him crabs, but they were tiny puppet crabs she got from Tokes.

  • Every single time Tokes accidentally shot himself. ROFL.

  • That sad episode when Captain McPkank died.

You guys must have some some eps on TV Land. What are some of your faves?

There are times when I'm convinced you wrote for SNL.

He did. Most of the skits didn't air until the end of the episodes, though.

Re: April Fools // "Tokes and Stokes"

This whole thing is fucking perfect.

Also, I'm totally fangirling over Alex. Not just the mustache (but dat mustache tho), but the score. Day-um.

Re: April Fools // "Tokes and Stokes"

All these descriptions of episodes of Tokes and Stokes makes me realise that ABC had gotten worse over the years. Bring back this classic show, Disney! Take a risk!

This was awesome and that score was perfect.

Re: April Fools // "Tokes and Stokes"

I still remember the episode where Stokes hooked up with Tokes' ex - Fanny Handl'r, the Austrian puppet cabaret singer. I never picked that she would actually be a double-agent who attempted to assassinate McPkank, and it was gut-wrenching to watch Stokes have to gun her down to save his Captain's life.

Re: April Fools // "Tokes and Stokes"

The episode where they went to the mirror universe and Stokes didn't have a mustache was quite riveting, as I recall.

Re: April Fools // "Tokes and Stokes"

The infamously godawful Christmas Carol parody/clip show episode never has been available on video - many people don't even believe it exists.  But I saw it, I swear I did *.

Also the one where KISS and the cast of AfterMASH guest-starred together is just bizarre.

* unless that was a Fall Guy episode

Re: April Fools // "Tokes and Stokes"

Was that with the infamous musical number, "Tokes Christmas Carol"? I heard the Catholic Church tried to excommunicate the producers over that one.

Re: April Fools // "Tokes and Stokes"

I remember they tried to be clever with the titles in season one but ran out of ideas after the art theft episode  'Brush Stokes'.

Lots of props to all of you guys putting this together (and to Trey for putting up with all of you). I'm pretty amazed the cops were not somehow involved in this production and that Dorkman was brave enough to venture in to a dumpster.

Good job all around!

God loves you!

Re: April Fools // "Tokes and Stokes"

The best part was when I TOTALLY FUCKING FELL FOR IT in the first few shots.  It took me a while to realize that you hadn't just dug up crazy old footage from Trey's glory days and concocted something out of it.  Good fucking job.

My problem was the two characters were identical, and I couldn't tell which one was Stokes.

You guys, the Tokes and Stokes theme has been stuck in my head since you put it up.  I feel like I'm walking around as some superfly 70's badass crime fighter or something....complete with the retro film grain.

See, the best part with "Tokes and Stokes" is the almost Fight Club-esque twist that they are really the same guy, just a split mind.

My problem was how Trey could be "grizzled" in 1974. Dude grizzled early.

Yes, I was an early grizzler.   And a late groomer.

Day = made. Thank you for that.

Obligatory just-so-you-know that you can download the track on my SoundCloud page (the "music" link under the April Fools video).
