Default "Where's Rodney?" unsold pilot from 1990 starring Rodney Dangerfield

Unsold sitcom pilot about a kid who can magically summon Rodney Dangerfield to solve his problems. A co-production of Aaron Spelling and Hanna Barbera (!)

I think I might have watched this when it aired.

I've never saw an episode, but this sounds like it may be one of those so bad it's good shows. I love Rodney.

But if the pilot was never sold doesn't that mean it never aired??

I guess that's possible, but what I think that it might mean is that it aired, but the network decided not to pick it up, so no other episodes were produced.

Edit: I looked it up and it turns out that some unsold pilots air and some of them don't.

Why wasn’t this picked up? Even if it was lousy, it was Rodney Dangerfield, and people would have watched.

I agree! It would've been good for a season or 2.
