Is it strange that i think all 3 of the guys afternoon in Chicago fantasies sound like fun?

Is it weird that I noticed that 'Johnny At The Fair' uses the same music as the short 'Aquatic Wizards'? I guess stock music had to start somewhere!

This film. . . Woof. I wonder how long you can power the city of San Francisco using nothing but the energy generated by Jack Kerouac spinning in his grave?

One of the best shorts!
Is it me or does the 'lost children' sign seems a little over the top... it appears to light up! Not to mention the large number of kids that apparently have also been lost/neglected.

Lol, Yay! I know all those stations Joel was listing during the creative writing segment. ^_^ Also, Crow, that was just so deep! And Gyspy's story. Wow. Really makes you think, huh? :P
Good episode!

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 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?

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.

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.

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!)

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.
