I teach pre-k (4- and 5-year olds), and I don't think Johnny is 5 years old. He looks no older than 4. Why does the short lie about his age? To make it seem less tragic and negligent that a small child is allowed to wander off?

The Riffing during the chase scene at the end was hilarious! I couldn't stop laughing!!

Good Lord that Mister Tucker guy is so pretentious it makes me want to punch something.

The moral of the short seems to be that if you wander off at a crowded fair, you'll get to do all sorts of cool stuff and meet every celebrity. Who is this kid, Forrest Gump?

Interesting to see Edward Platt in this kind of role! I'm a little disappointed there weren't more Get Smart! riffs, though...

I liked Gypsy's math probl-er Gypsy's train story. It was gritty and thought provoking.

It’s not Merritt Stone. Although he IS in Earth Versus the Spider, Tormented, and The Magic Sword.

A man dies aboard a train and they think the cops aren’t going to check along the tracks?

"Those two men look as though they've just seen a ghost." They look like two guys simply walking together through a dining car.

Did anyone catch the shout out to the original Ocean's Eleven starring the rat pack? In OE, Sammy Davis, Jr. sang a song with the lyric E.O. Eleven! Joel said that when Mr. Trucker told the men he wanted to steal a million dollars. Obscure!

The movie starts with C. Everett Koop awkwardly pitching woo to Stockard Channing, and somehow gets better from there.

You know, the "Who is Merritt Stone?" bit wouldn't work if they tried to do it now, now that we have the internet.

And crow's line during the short, "Oops, sorry dad," is one of the greatest lines I've ever heard.

Seeing Crow and Servo in bed makes me feel so vindicated. When I can, I watch an episode when I fall asleep.

Heh, Gypsy's eye going out as she nods off while Crow outlines his afternoon in Chicago is priceless.

You know, if I could stretch this short to over 2 hours, and make it about a mentally disabled adult instead of a child, I bet it could win multiple Oscars!

File this under 'Can't Be Unseen': When Joel is filling in his "Paint-by-Numbers Mark Rothko" what does he draw?

Here's a hint: It's a part of the anatomy of a little less than half of the population.

Y'know, I didn't hold up much hope for the short in the first couple of minutes, but then Joel'n'the Bots caught fire and really started ripping into it. This is becoming one of my favorite shorts.

The feature itself wasn't an instant favorite, but it grew on me very quickly, thanks to the riffing on Edward "Chief" Platt and that I Sing Whenever She Sings Whenever I Sing Whenever She Sings Guy.

Another favorite of mine, another ep that I'm surprised hasn't gotten more laughs. (Hey, c'mon! Jazz jokes, a great short, the "Who Is Meritt Stone" finale, and a climactic fight in NEWARK, People! This is a certified gem!)

BTW, The Art Institute of Chicago really is free on Tuesdays--and Evanston is a great place to kill time...

I'm 90% certain that some of the same Jazz music in this film was used in Manos.

DIRECTOR: Mr. Louis, we're going to put a strange white child in your lap for several minutes and film it...hope you don't mind!

OK looks like it's pulled from all the free sites, unless you want to watch it in parts. Hulu has it (echchch no thanks their ads are horrible!) Netflix has it on streaming though.

Worth it for the short alone, but the movie gets less excruciating in the second half.
