Saturday School: Flying Rhino Junior High (1998)

Canada's Nelvana studios felt it was time to take viewers back to school toward the end of the 20th century. However, what they had in mind wasn't exactly targeted at improving minds or imaginations.

Flying Rhino Junior High, which spent 2 seasons on CBS (1998-2000) is centered on a disgraced student, Earl, who hides in the school's basement, creating a super computer which he uses to alter reality, or at least try to. Considering that it was airing opposite some live-action high school comedy on NBC (i.e. Saved By The Bell: The New Class), I think viewers were gradually turning away once they saw how hokey this was. If ya don't believe me, scope the open:

Never saw the show, so no fair rating can be given here.
