New Kids on the Block in Beverly Hills of Arabia






Going back a short period in time many in the US wish to forget, in 1990 the New Kids on the Block where immensely popular, and as a result they had their own cartoon to accompany their fame. One particular episode has the group to be arranged to wed a "Middle Eastern" woman, straight out of 1001 nights. What makes this more than a typical Arabic based plot, is that the family lives in a mansion right in Beverly Hills. One wonders if the writers were slightly influenced by the 30+ years of Persians living in Beverly Hills many in McMansions. Regardless, to read into anything further into this script would undoubtedly lead one to madness. However, the video is posted above.
