Another unfinished ep on my tour. This is the one that no matter how late in the proceedings I started, I still fell asleep before the end. I'm really glad I finished it because the last ten minutes are the best ten minutes. Coises!

I've seen the shorts many times, of course, and the skits are all wonderful. Difficult Pills to Swallow is one of the greatest inventions ever, and apparently a Difficult Skit to Dramatize. That Frank!

Posture pals is an old favorite. And randomly, when the narrator's risperidone starts wearing off, he starts to rhyme a few stanzas. A treat.

Wasn't "Appreciating our parents" already shown in an earlier episode? I've seen it already, but hadn't seen the Posture Pals one before. And I going crazy?

"In a way, the money is father's work." The hell do they mean, "in a way"? What other angle could you possibly see that from?!?

The short the father works all day as an electrician, then comes home and wears a tie to balance his checkbook and eat? Did people really do these things? My Dad grew up in the 1950's and he says not in his world.

Considering the actual film is only an hour long, it's incredible how slow it is. The entire feature should have been its own short!

Anyone else notice that they used the same music in Bloodlust?

The Posture Pals segment is hysterical on two levels. The riffing is top-shelf, and the film is just so funny on its own. I just laugh at the thought of people like my mom and dad having to suffer through these pathetic attempts to make them better people.

I just realized that Joel was checking dental records to make sure Crow was Crow. Since when did Crow have any teeth?!

It's funny, considering the opening sketch, that Trace went on to work at America's Funniest Home Videos.

I swear, I have tried to watch this epi. @ least 3 times, maybe four. I just can't do it, I fall asleep about halfway through! I will try again.

“It’s a good thing we have institutions that will take good care of them for the rest of their lives.” Or at least until Reagan gets into office.

…The smith a mighty man is he
With large and sinewy hands.
And the muscles of his brawny arms
Are strong as iron bands.

I can’t believe I remember that whole stanza from 5th grade lit.

Yes by simply improving you posture you too can be a king or queen of Narnia.

If you could swallow the giant, second pill, I'm sure a lot of guys know you inside and out.

Laugh if you said 'NO!' out loud when the narrator asked, "Don't you agree that these 4 children deserve to win after trying so hard to improve their postures?"

"Jimmy, put your mother on, don't hang up Jimmy...Jimmy..." I believe this is a James Garner quote from The Thrill of it All with Doris Day.

They don't explain the painful pill invention thats on franks upper right corner - the small globe. I wonder if that was a mishap - and they just thought it was the best take and kept it. Why else would they create a prop to not even use it haha.

Either I don't remember this one, or have only seen it once. Have a shorts dvd-r so Ive seen posture pals but The Unearthly - I can't seem to remember anything from it ( similar with Creeping Terror - because its so similiar - almost the same movie by the same guy, same monster, same set, mostly the same idea lol )

I will never, in a million years, get over the creepiness of Our Hero shooting the moves on a mentally ill woman in the midst of a pile of corpses. Twilight only aspired to this level of Creepy Hero-dom.

I think it'd be interesting to have Joel and the Bots pull the Joyzee Mooks voices in every episode. Interesting, yet quick to become really irritating.

Hmmm...pretty good stuff, as usual. The 30's slang is fun...but come on: Ann B. Davis? I know her! Well, met her regularly for a while. Very nice woman. John Carradine sounds like the late David; like father, like grasshopper. Talent and sadness: read David's bio on WikkiP.

Did anyone else catch it when Joel said, "Pickled punks?" Does anyone know what a pickled punk is? ... A mutated baby corpse in a jar. Pretty morbid coming from Joel!

Mary's mom in Posture Pals looks so much like Jethro Bodine, I can't get over it. Especially since Max Baer dresses up as his sister Jethrine all the time. (0:13:15)

Ah, that butt-tucked posture has ruined the backs of two, maybe three generations. In the movie, watch for the brain-dead guy's twitching. He was supposed to play a corpse, but couldn't hold still!
