** Later that same episode, he receives a video message from Becky (who, for the record, is as human as ever), assumes she sent it psychically from her "mutated lobster brain," and [[RewindReplayRepeat replays it]] forwards, backwards, and upside down until it gives him something in the language of the "crab-men" (who may or may not exist InUniverse; [[MST3KMantra it's not important]]).

* OpeningNarration[=/=]FakeOutOpening: Creator/BillyWest starts out reading the opening narration as GKR, using a gravelly voice. Then, right when you think this show is an action drama à la ''WesternAnimation/{{X-Men}}'', West ''flawlessly'' switches voices and reads the rest as Geeker.

A twistedly brilliant Saturday morning cartoon by DougTenNapel (the same man behind ''EarthwormJim'') and Doug Langdale (who ironically helped make the ''Earthworm Jim'' cartoon, despite [=TenNapel=]'s opposition to it; he would later go on to create Disney's ''WesternAnimation/TheWeekenders'' and ''WesternAnimation/DaveTheBarbarian''), ''Project G.e.e.K.e.R.'' ran for thirteen episodes in [[TheNineties the mid-90's]] on Creator/{{CBS}}. However it was doomed from the beginning because the FCC's new [[ExecutiveMeddling educational programming requirements]] came into effect in January 1997, just as its first season run was ending, and CBS couldn't see it meeting [[EdutainmentShow E/I]] guidelines well enough for a second season.
