i'm in a mcdonalds in rural virginia and 8am-10am is when the whole place is chock a block with old people. And at the height of this time frame it sounds like the old southern guys in the egg cream scene!

A Case of Spring Fever takes the cake at being the OLDEST short Mike and the bots have had the pleasure of riffing...since, you know, Pearl thinks it was made in the "1700s". :P

In the Spring Fever short does he say that "hobo sticks" have springs?

if the spring sprite was named Coily, then Mike's sprite being "Mike'sy" is inaccurate....

My god, did every actor in this movie learn a southern accent by taking lessons from Europeans attempting to portray the cast from Sweet Home Alabama?

Alright so Roger was attacked on a boat in the middle of the river, then ran into the woods?....Sounds about right.

Something that stands out for me here is the weird little sub-plot about Mick's wet clothes. First of all, why does the girl offer to lend him dry clothes? Did he only pack one outfit? And secondly, why does he decide against changing? Were they in a hurry or something? It would be one thing if they just forgot to have him change, but we see him actively deciding to put off changing until after they go on what appears to be a light errand.

I stayed up late and saw this on TV on night as a kid and I was absolutely traumatized by it. Of course they cut the scene that traumatized me, where Roger gets attacked by the worms. Still, many years later this movie just looks so stupid to me. Oh how I have lost my innocence!

I've got Coily's voice stuck in my head. I was at the gas pump and when it asked if I wanted a receipt I hit "No" and said "Noooooo receipt!"

I've been watching the episodes out of order, via Club MST3K, so saw Springy before Crow dressed up as Willy the Waffle back in Season Four - admittedly makes (slightly) more sense...

Is it just me or does the guy from the Springs short seem way older than his golfing buddies?

Also, that short always reminds me of this clip from the Simpsons: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hPym09LQfnc
(I know the quality on that clip is pretty terrible, but it's the best that I could find in English)

Squirm is one of the few Misty films that I will watch without the commentary. It's shown on cable sometimes. There are some scenes with Roger and the worms that are unfortunately edited out of this version.

"Alas, poor Beardsley! I knew him, Mick, a fellow of infinite beauty, of most excellent filth. He hath borne my thinnest frame naught yesterday, and now, how abhorred in my imagination it is! Bulimia takes its toll. Here hung those lips that I have kissed I know not how oft. —And your teeth so foul, riddled they are to mark your merriment. No longer will your name pass my lips in a beckoning roar. Let my woes guide your death, as yonder Nelson mocks chapfallen along alloy creatures of crimson and gold. Yay, make their ever-watching shadows laugh!"

"Say, Girlfriend, now that we've started finding bodies, why don't I leave you here in the middle of nowhere alone with this guy you obviously hate. You know, the passive-aggressive guy who, as far as we can tell at this point, seems like the most likely culprit for the dead guy we just found? Oh, don't worry about me; you just stay here in the rowboat with Oily McCrazy-eyes while I take his truck. BYE!"

90 degrees? Where I’m from 90 is a mild spring day suitable for ditch digging and long distance sprinting.

So Fly Creek is both 5 miles straight ahead, AND half a mile to the right through the woods?

From IMDB :
Kim Basinger auditioned for the female lead.

Sylvester Stallone eagerly pursued the casting agents for the part of Roger, and Martin Sheen was briefly attached to the project to play Mick.

Why couldn't we have gotten that movie?

Not where he eats, but where he is eaten: a certain convocation of politic worms are e'en at him. Your worm is your only emperor for diet: we fat all creatures else to fat us, and we fat ourselves for maggots: your fat king and your lean beggar is but variable service, two dishes, but to one table: that's the end. - Hamlet

First this guy hallucinates a talking spring, then he starts rambling incoherently to his friends about how awesome springs are and how the world is made of them...is this short really about springs, or is it an anti-drug PSA?

Fun trivia: Makeup effects guru Rick Baker worked on this film.
The movie he worked on before this one? Track of the Moon Beast.
The movie he worked on after this one? The Incredible Melting Man.
The movie he worked on after that one? A little film called Star Wars.

I love that we finally get the short for Springs that inspired the Willy The Waffle sketch in 423 The Bride Of The Monster (about an hour and ten in). I like to think of the Brains sitting on this gem of a short and then presenting it in the final season as a goody.

When I was little I watched a made-for-TV movie about killer worms that was pretty similar to this; I remember in one scene the worms hid in an empty gardener's glove and when he put the gloves on again they ate his hands. So now I have this compulsion to check my gloves and boots before I garden. I think there was a sequel with giant killer lobsters. Anyone know what movies I'm talking about?

I guess this short was made to combat the growing hatred of springs among fringe Anti-American groups. Makes perfect sense.
