Canceled Too Soon #136: 'Benji, Zax & the Alien Prince' (1983)

The lovable doggie hero Benji got his own TV series! And for some reason it was a mashup of "Star Wars," "The Fugitive" and Harmony Korine's "Gummo!" It was the ongoing saga of a young alien prince hiding out on Earth, as he's chased by intergalactic hunters and repeatedly rescued by a goofy-looking robot and a plucky homeless dog: "Benji, Zax & the Alien Prince!"

It's one of the weirdest shows we've reviewed in a very long time, so buckle up and start listening to film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold as they unearth this bizarre TV artifact from the 1980s, and decide once and for all if it was... CANCELED TOO SOON!

Give it a listen!
