On June 2, 1984, NBC broadcast "Welcome To The Fun Zone" as a one-shot summer
    replacement for "Saturday Night Live." Hosted by Dr. Demento, it is listed 
    in TV Guide as "A 'late-night party' blending comedy, music, and videos. 
    It included: Dr. Demento, Howie Mandel, John Paragon, puppeteer Mark Weiner
    and the Weinerettes, Bozo the Clown, and John Candy in 'The Golf Course 
    That Dripped Blood.'" Also appearing are Victoria Jackson and Weird Al 
    (who performed "I Lost On Jeopardy" on the show). Al also write a theme 
    song for the show, but it was not used. The song he wrote evolved into 
    "Fun Zone", which is on the UHF Soundtrack Album.
