Guest Star Robin Williams
17 October 2018 | by Jimmy_the_Gent4See all my reviews

The first scene is a funny quick promo of Angel Cortez FBI Jockey, with John Candy in the title role of the Mexican jockey working undercover for the FBI. Bobby Bittman has a funny PSA for the Public Library, he reads with some kids while smoking a cigarette.

Gus the Security Guard has a crush on Mrs Prickley. Robin Williams first appears as John Houseman reading the phone book. Farm Film Report welcomes Dance Fever host Denny Terrio (Martin Short). He does some dance moves and blows up real good.

Gus greets musical guest America and at first will not let them in but relents when he finds out Mrs Prickley rented the studio to them. Juul Haalmeyer and his dancers are rehearsing there but Gus chases them out. America performs a song Right Before Your Eyes. Gus has a romantic dream sequence about Mrs Prickley in a limo during the song.

A very funny Movie Of The Week follows, The Bowery Boys In The Band. Williams plays the Leo Gorcey Slip character who is a closeted gay having a party with his gay friends while his straight pals Sach (Short) and Whitey (Candy) show up. Some of the funniest bits are when Slip talks in his normal macho New York accent but launches into a high campy tone when he is with his gay pals. Sach tells him about their pal Gabe is in trouble. This turns into a Deer Hunter parody as Gabe is playing in Russian Roulette game.

Rawl Withers shows some National Midnight Star stories and Harry the guy with the snake on his face has a commercial for de scramblers of cable TV.

Next is a hilarious BBC version of Jane Eyrehead. Andrea Martin plays the title role who comes to the mansion of Mr Rochester (Joe Flaherty) who talks like Eddie "Rochester" Anderson! The final scene has them stuck in the Jack Benny Show.

Williams then plays Rev Gene Filler for the Church Of Unlimited Credit, where he asks for donations for a dowry to heaven. Count Floyd then hosts Dr Tongue's 3D House Of Slavechicks, which in addition to the usual 3D effects there is a can of Smell-O-Rama.

There is a funny commercial for a record of Curly Howard singing great movie love themes. he does his high pitched "la-da-dees" to Romeo And Juliet and The Godfather. Gus asks Mrs Prickley to be his girl friend but she is not interested. There is a People's Court parody of Flaherty and Andrea as a bickering couple blaming Road Runner cartoons for their problem.

The final scene has Rev Filler asking for more money along with his disinterested son (Short)
