Thursday Cartoon Intro - ED GRIMLEY
The character of Ed Grimley was created by Martin Short and originated on the Canadian television show SCTV. From there, Short took the character with him over to SNL, The Martin Short Show and various other guest spots. In 1988, Ed Grimley was transformed into an animated character in the cartoon series THE COMPLETELY MENTAL MISADVENTURES OF ED GRIMLEY. The series followed Ed on his 'misadventures' and had numerous SCTV guest stars such as Eugene Levy, Dave Thomas, Andrea Martin, Catherine O'Hara and Joe Flaherty. Other notable guests include Ringo Starr and Christopher Guest.
Currently the complete series isn't available on DVD. However, you can find one episode of the Ed Grimley show on Warner Bros. Saturday Morning Cartoons: 1980s, Vol. 1 DVD.
