Film watched: The Stranger aka Stranded in Space

The Segments:

  • Joel has turned Tom and Crow into his own personal at-home shooting gallery. He also discusses the show's premise.

Segment 1/Invention Exchange
  • Both sides offer similar inventions riffing on the classic "Bang!" Flag Gun — Joel with a "Kaboom!" Uzzi, "Sloink!" knife and "Kachow!" dynamite, and Dr. Forrester with a "Slunk!" harpoon gun, "Klunk!"/"Whssh!" nunchuks and "Boingee Banga Ka Bonga!" TNT plunger.

Segment 2
  • Crow and Tom argue about their Toppers TV trading cards. Joel derails the conversation with his "Kids in Court" set.

Segment 3
  • Crow had a nightmare and comes to cookie-baking Tom for comfort. They discuss their ideas about Ward E.

Segment 4
  • Joel is an evil executive who orders Tom and Crow to take care of the problems threatening his criminal empire. His use of euphemisms confuses his henchmen. Evil laughter galore.

Segment 5
  • Tom is the head executive at a TV studio, and Joel and Crow need to pitch the film to him as a pilot for a series. It fails miserably, but they read a letter, which itself has series potential, at least. Dr. Forrester tries to promote Frank, but he won't be swayed from his second banana status.
