Ed Kemmer in WWII
1 laugh

Donald Petkus - 8 days ago

Ed Kemmer, our science teacher, was a fighter pilot in WWII. He evaded capture for two weeks after escaping a POW camp. Apparently there were a lot of greatest generation folks ( including Ed Wood) in those B movies.

Sheesh ... another one. 38:40 - bat harmlessly flapping around in its natural habitat, and the moment the sherrif sees it he opens fire.
What is it with all these movies where everything the slightest bit unusual or unexpected is greeted with a hail of bullets from the good guys if not the hero? Anyone would think every problem can be solved by shooting it.

Around, 50:00ish, when he's talking about that new picture, "something about Puppet People"...

Frank still has a bunch of cheese cubes on his tray before Joel's invention exchange...

...but then, as he says, "I think I ate all the whole thing." Joel's invention exchange presentation only took a minute. It's funny to imagine Frank furiously gobbling cheese while Dr. F's back is turned watching Joel. That is all.

That was a wise move, putting a giant, mysterious, possibly dangerous spider in the local high school gym.

Lawn Darts are a little bit different story The kid of the guy who got lawn darts banned didn't go running to daddy because she was dead. Lawn darts friggin kill people so I'm not putting those on the same shelf as creepy crawlers. .

What is that at 57:18? It sounds like Servo is saying something but Kevin's mike isn't picking it up.

Ooh... They compare the sheriff in this episode to Alan Hale. But in their next giant spider movie The Giant Spider Invasion the sheriff actually IS Alan Hale. Spooky.

Funny thing is, they did revive the Creepy Crawlers maker in the 90s, just a safer version. My friend had one, and I remember that smell! According to the internets, it came out the year after this ep was shown.

The really realistic part of this flick (once you get past the notion of a tarantula the size of a city block that doesn't collapse into jelly from its own massive body-weight) was the way it powered through the brick wall at the school to gobble up the janitor but was unable to make it through the clapboarding at the science teacher's house to get the wife and kid. The tragedy here is that I remember when these goofy 50's sci-fi flicks scared the ever-loving crap out of me. I hang my head in shame.

In that short, the guy giving advice on speaking has one of the worst speaking voices ever, a dull monotone that's guaranteed to put listeners to sleep.

While watching this I actually had a spider crawl up my foot. Timing is everything!... and the spider was released into the great outdoors as I did not want its mother showing up looking for it (you never know...)

Between me and my two older brothers we had every toy mentioned in the creepy crawlie sketch except the lawn darts. I remember pressing silly putty on the newspaper cartoons, my brother waking me and my sister up for school with that ugly black air blaster and burning myself making Incredible Edibles (that tasted better than the cakes I 'baked' in my Easy Bake oven.

Joel's cheese phone was invented in the same month and year as I was born! Coincidence? Read the book.

Also, I like the nod to the Forrester/Earhardt days.

DDT may not kill giant spiders, but at least they don't have to worry about any bald-eagles for a few generations.

I grew up in the 90s and played with Creepy Crawlers when they were revived. Now I feel like I owe Joel and the bots ...Of course, mine was much safer ...But I do remember a home smelter that made tiny figurines. That sounded like a fun accident waiting to happen.

The short's the best part of this, but watch the movie-- you'll laugh (at the humans) you'll cry (for the spider.)
