ZeldaQueen Dear god, I could have gone for seeing one of those.

I remember this one bike safety video I saw and the "improper biking techniques" were always demonstrated by this unsuspecting (and apparently extremely stupid) dude who would bike incorrectly and get hit by a car or something. At the end of the movie, a family goes to enter a biking contest and the daughter shouts "Hey, look at that guy" and sure enough, the poor bugger's there, head wrapped in bandages, several teeth missing, and waving a bike helmet.

DALI-II My god,the producers of this shit were stoned.

Those monkey masks look creepy.

Earthbound_X I can't believe no one mentioned bike helmets!
Did bikers not have to wear them in the 60s?
Oh, and Rifftrax just added this to thier list of shorts!

bikegeek All i want to know is why the monkey in the hospital is wearing a stethoscope?

Grossenschwamm Honestly, I took the whole monkey comment as a racial connotation.

artimus I preferred Bus Nut, but that was hilarious. Good job, again, Rog! ^^
and that was...scary O___O

Obscurus Lupa True story: There were no bicycle accidents in the entire 60's decade BECAUSE ALL THE KIDS WERE SCARED SHITLESS.

xscoot Part of the blame actually goes towards the company that made the bike that was ridden by two kids. Who the hell puts the part where the second rider stands in front of the driver? It should always be behind the driver! It's like they were brainstorming ways to get kids into accidents so they can be paid to make this film.

beatpole Disturbing, but not nearly as disturbing as Napolean Dynamite.

Simple:

"Slim" Jim Beam over there had the nickname slim for a reason. He was the previous year's take on that video's franchise. Then he ated all the lunches for himself, got fat, back on the mayo, then wrecked his car so he was bummin' rides one day down in the valley when his old buddy Fshlorgel Fshlooplalopnik offers him a ride. Then him and OJ simpson walked in, slit the lizard's throat, and jesus I am out of madness.

On a related note, I think the purpose of the masks were to show the kiddies of that day and age horribly disfigured people without *really* freakin out the snowflakes. Those are crudely misshapen, they remind me of the masks the kids wear in Pink Floyd "The Wall" Just frighteningly distiurbing.

AND FUNNY AS HELL!!!

neoboman Not the gripping, tour de force that was Bus Nut, but a worthy effort nonetheless.

Slobulus HAHAHA @ 10:59 When Filbert gets crushed. You can even hear the blood squish out of his body! HAHAHAAHAH! Oh man. This shit is priceless! Even his eye balls bulges out.

Ahhhh ...love it. Thanks for sharing this gem.

You know you're distracted when you let a steamroller crush you.
That works too. As long as someone is fucking someone over I'm happy

TheDoomThing Hmmm, Maybe Orville had a grudge on them, so he BRAINWASHED them to be hits by cars,steamroller etc.

Count Mek I was thinking the EXACT same thing Mr. Flashman! I mean, 20 SECONDS is a loooong time to react to something like imminent death.
Feb 2nd, 2008 08:59 PM
Flashman beggars the question why fat monkey kid didnt jump off if he could plainly see he was about to ride into the hole
Feb 2nd, 2008 05:48 PM
Count Mek When I saw the picture that showed the apes I had to scroll back up the page and calm myself down before I could continue, also, they need to put a Death Count on the top left corner, ever death it goes up by one! Mwahahahahaa.
Ace find -RoGelz-!

Spruce Moose Why must the narrator keep saying "Right?...right." after every death? It's unsettling!
Feb 2nd, 2008 02:30 PM
incognit000 So let me get this straight...

Your reward for biking safely is to get fat eating monkey food?

And there's a thin green line that goes through everything.

Jaimas I've seen horror movies less frightening then the contents of this movie.
Feb 2nd, 2008 12:36 PM
mew barios like anyone would care if a bunch of monkeys ended up in the hospital

mobo85 The film's narrator is Edward Everett Horton, an old-time actor probably best known nowadays as the narrator of the "Fractured Fairy Tales" on The Bullwinkle Show.

The son of the director of this film had some things to say about this:

Ren & Stimpy mostly used old production music, so some of the cues might actually have been used in this film.

BigMac500 I think those masks are to scare the children into such shock that they will not wish to leave the house. No bicycle riding means no being crushed by steam rollers, which means improved safety! Huzzah!
