Does anyone remember this show? Do I have the name of it right? It was an anthology series on Showtime, I think, in the early '80's, created by Shelley Duvall. Anyway, Frank was in one episode called (not sure here) The Boy Who Went Search Of His Shivers, with the guy that used to be the hospital administrator on Chicago Hope and was in Ghostbusters II---I wanna say Peter Scolari, but that ain't right. Peter somebody. Ramble,ramble...get to the point!!!!!!So, Frank is this servant, and at the end of the show, the young man becomes rich, so Frank the servant is wearing a crown, and he's taking a bite out of an apple...very hazy memory. I know that there was once a video of it available. Anyone with a better memory or more info, please h'ep me!!!!!!!!

I remember that, too, but not until you just reminded me.<br><br> I think Frank polishes the apple under his arm, offers it to I-can't-remember-who, they kind of wrinkle their nose and decline with a head shake, he shrugs and takes a bite of the apple and walks off. Am I remembering right?<br>Didn't he kind of have a crooked walk and a hunchback kind of thing happening, too? And the clothes kind of looked like burlap?<br>It was a long time ago, and i WAS in an altered state at the time I saw it...but that's what I think I remember. ;)<br>

You're thinking of Peter MacNicol (Kristy's brother). Here's a page I found about the video.<br>http://www.uoregon.edu/~splat/Shivers.html
