In 1991, Head of the Class ended its run and Robbins started a production company with producer friend Tollin, aptly named Tollin/Robbins Productions. The company originally produced several small budget sport documentaries. Hecht, now Head of Development for Nickelodeon, contacted them and asked them to film a project for the network. The half-hour documentary they made featured the network's game show hosts Phil Moore (Nick Arcade) and Mike O'Malley (Get the Picture and Nickelodeon GUTS) as co-hosts of a comedy tour as they drove around to different cities to perform. Since their schedule only permitted for two days of filming, Tollin/Robbins had to make the entire show appear as if they had toured around the country.
