In the opening scene what sounds like a children's program is playing on the TV in the background. It is actually a raunchy sketch called "Koko the Klown Show" from the movie The Groove Tube (1974), Chevy Chase's first movie which was also directed by Ken Shapiro, who played Koko, and directed Modern Problems (1981).

Jealous, harried air traffic controller Max Fiedler (Chevy Chase), recently dumped by his girlfriend, comes into contact with nuclear waste and is granted the power of telekinesis, which he uses not only to win her back, but to gain a little revenge.
The bloody nose scene goes from mildly amusing to rather revolting, and that made it something I could have done without. But that was the only really bad part of the film.
