Summary: This wormy layer of
filmic offal from the Sceptred Isle portrays something not
to be seen in England again until the administration of
Margaret Thatcher: a prehistoric monster laying waste to the
Prologue: Crow finds out that his web is the perfect nesting place for the rare Spix's Macaw.
Segment One: Pearl has flown off to Los Angeles to find an ally in the struggle to bring bad films to Mike. She finds Leonard Maltin, who recommends the movie Gorgo. The two then get real pissy about lunch.
Segment Two: Based on one character's resemblance to Samuel Beckett, The Satellite of Love presents its own adaptation: "Waiting for Gorgot."
Segment Three: Mike is obsessed with winning the William Sylvesterr edition of Trivial Pursuit. The Bots have a hard time remembering who the hell William Sylvester is, exactly.
Segment Four: Perhaps inspired by today's movie, the Nanites put on a circus! With Nate the clown! Mike puts down his quarter to get in! But he forgets how tiny they are and the Circus is crushed! Horrible death and carnage! Wheee!
Segment Five: Uh-oh, crow and Servo have contracted with the mob to make a saucy calendar with the women from today's film. Mike helps the pair scan the film for attractive English and Irish women in our charming backhanded insult to both countries.
Stinger: Incomprehensible fisherman.
Leonard Maltin was very nice and sweet and a real pro when
he did our show. He learned his lines quickly, had an
instant rapport with Mary Jo, and rolled with many changes
that came along. He is a charming, affable, thoroughly
professional man. Too bad he gave Gorgo three
stars, the dope.
