Did You Know?

Goofs

This short implies that George Lucas got the inspiration of the Howard the Duck movie from a pet duck named Howard. This is false as Steve Gerber and Val Mayerik were the actual creators of the Howard the Duck comic. George Lucas only served as a producer for the movie adaption and had no involvement with the creation of the character. See more »

Quotes

Professor: No. Search not. Inspiration will you not find. It will find you.
George: Could you talk forward?

One of the 5 best shorts I have ever seen.
13 June 2000 | by notlehsSee all my reviews

What an excellent piece of work Joe Nussbaum needs a feature directing gig. I loved it. Download and watch as soon as you can. It is just fantastic. I laughed all the way through. I am usually pretty unimpressed with shorts, but this is just totally entertaining. I watched it a few times now, and it has great detail. Excellent parody. Large KUDOS!
