Alice Cooper and Gene Wilder don't seem like they have much in common aside from the fact that they both became superstars in the 70s.
But back in the mid-90s this unlikely duo appeared together in Wilder's sitcom Something Wilder, with Cooper playing himself and moving in next door to Wilder's character Gene Bergman.
Episode 14 entitled “Hangin' With Mr. Cooper”, was the second to last episode of Something Wilder to air on NBC, at a point when the producers were trying to save the show by introducing zanier storylines.
I can't help but wonder if the show would have been cancelled so quickly if they'd cast Alice as the neighbor from the beginning, because Wilder and Cooper have surprisingly good comedic chemistry.
