Script from "Hendu's Romper Room" children's TV show commercial, circa 1992: "Hey, kids, gather 'round. It's your big buddy Hendu, host of 'Hendu's Romper Room' on public-access Channel 74 in Oakland. You want to get in the game at 4:30 in the morning? Stop by and have some big-league fun with your pal Hendu, a guy who likes to clown around. What kind of fun do we have? Well, check out my buddies in the dugout: We talk on the phone, we drink beer, we catch some zzzz's, we catch some more zzzz's, we grab our gloves and get ready for the game, we cross our legs and chew tobacco, and we cheer on our fans - you little guys. So, tell your parents to get you up before the sun comes up and turn your TV to Channel 74. 'Hendu's Romper Room' is on, and we're playing with balls - baseballs, that is."
