...showed back up in a wartime (Basil and Nigel) Sherlock Holmes movie: the one set at a convalescence inn in Canada. I just watched all those in order, and it was like seeing an old friend when Rondo showed up.

More depressing than "High School Big Shot," but not as depressing as "Stranded in Space." Proof that not all old movies are classic, or even watchable. Other than the old grocer scene and the host bits, this one's pretty hard for me.

Crow could use some babysitting pointers from Vicky if he wants to be a tyrannical babysitter. But who wouldn't be bagging for their life when threatened with a flamethrower or fire ax. XD
Vicky: "An I would force them to clean the toilet after I'm done with it. I have a mean stool problem."
Well that was just...icky. Where's Trixie?

"Could those chicks just out of the shell be sent without food on trips of a day, two days, even three? Indeed they can; Nature thought about that, too."

Because in the wild chicks often travel long distances immediately after hatching.

Excuse me for going on another vegetarian rant, but now that I work at a grocery store slicing meat and cheese (don't ask; it pays well), I can tell you that roughly half of all rotisserie chicken get thrown away. Every night we toss out pounds of unbought chicken tenders, chicken wings, you name it. The chicken of tomorrow my ass. Us Americans are spoiled brats taking animal lives and throwing them away like rocks into the river.
RIP Clucky McCluckster. RIP starving kid in Africa.
And yes, I am being a self-righteous annoying dork right now. Deal with it.

So apparently this movie was a sequel to House of Horrors, and there were supposed to be a series of The Creeper movies, but Rondo Hatton died after filming this. It's too bad. I heard the next movie was going to be called The Brute Man Meets the Grumpy Old Grocer. The movie's tagline? "Creeper, Creeper, Creeper, you give me the creeps!"

8:57 I sincerely doubt their assertion that "very special photography" was used to peer inside an incubating egg. More than likely, they took a handful of eggs and just started busting them open...and that makes me so sad.

What they dont tell you is the skinny chicken has twice the flavor of the plump one! Also if you don't wash your eggs they will stay fresh almost indefinately, they come out with a coating of some kind of chicken goo that acts a barrier preventing things from reaching the egg and spoiling it...

This episode is one of the funniest, from beginning to end. The laughs just keep coming, the timing is perfect, and Mike and the 'bots had a great time. From the chicken short, to the actual movie, and even the skits, thus is a laugh til you cry presentation that deserves many more votes than 79. I am utterly amazed!
