5 Clips from the Insane Children’s Show Steampipe Alley

Alley

This one might be a little more for the older generation but for those of you who know who Mario Cantone is you might remember him doing a little show in the 80s-early 90s called Steampipe Alley.  As I look back on this show I now sort of realize what it is.  In the same light as He-Man it was a show that blatantly expressed Mario’s homosexuality disguised in children’s programming.

I’m amazed that this thing was even on.  From his Joan Rivers impression to flailing about the show I am by no means saying it’s wrong to be homosexual, but it’s very very evident that this was a “flaming” show and was really just a way for Mario to express himself.  As you may know, Mario now uses his homosexuality as the focal point in his stand up comedy.

And I have to admit, looking back as an adult, it was a pretty damned funny show.

Here are 5 clips from Steampipe Alley

Wow, this is before homosexuality was very accepted on TV and this couldn’t be any “gayer.”

Best part about this clip?  Pretty sure the first 2 seconds they were playing “Never gonna give you up”
