Bit: A Case of Mike Fever
Episode: 1012- Squirm
(Crow and Servo reading comic books and
Mike: So every object in the universe has its own spry
satanic sprite just waiting for the moment someone wishes it
that's weird...Hey, do you suppose there's even a hellish
imp for me?
Well, let's try it!
(in a voice like the "Case of
Spring Fever" protagonist) Shoo! Mike! I hope I never see
Mike again for as long as I live!
(With a sproingy sound, Mikey the Mike
Sprite pops into existence)
Mikey: So, you
never wanna see Mike again for as long as you live? (All
laugh) OK, mister, I'll fix it so you get that wish!
Mike: Hey, guys,
look, it must be--
The name's Mikey! The Mike Sprite
they call me!
Mike: This is
totally amazing! I had no idea--
Quiet! This has nothing to do
I heard your wish, and, well, now
you're gonna get it! No more Mike from now on!
(Mike pops out of existence)
Crow: Well! Well...live and learn, huh? There is a Mike
The name's Mikey.
(Crow and Tom return to their comic
You got your wish.
We, uh, we understand that.
NOOO Mike! (whistles)
Yeah. (continues to read)
Heh...this is good.
(Mikey looks from Crow to Tom and back.
Both are totally engrossed in their books.)
What's that you say?
I didn't say anything.
Tom: Neither did
You-- you got your wish...?
Uh, OK. Uh... gee, I wish I could
have a big Steak-Ummm sandwich brought to me by...Mike.
NOOO Mike! (whistles) Do
for...um, let's see. I wish I could jump on Mike's bed.
NOOO-- hold on. Does Mike's bed
exist if there's no Mike?
You'd better do an easier
Tom: Look, do you
want us to beg you to bring Mike back? Is that it?
Oh, all right. (assumes Frog-Man
voice again) Aw, gee, Mikey, I didn't realize what I was
missing. Isn't there anything we can do? Please let me take
back my wish!
Well, OK. I'll do it just this
But next time be more
Tom: We will, we
Don't ever make that wish
(Mike returns from limbo with the same
Tom: So there
must be a sprite for everything. Now what if I said...I hope
I never see Mike's socks again!
(With the same sproingy sound, another
sprite appears. He looks exactly like Mikey, only wrapped in
Mike: Oh, no...
Socksy: The name's Mike's
Socksy: The Mike's Socks Sprite,
they call me!
(Commercial sign blinks)
Mike: Right. Uh, we'll be right back. Hey, come on, I
want my socks back.
Socksy: NOOO Mike's socks!
Mike: No Mike's
