A series of short sketches, most of which parody late-night television and the low-budget movies one often finds there. Other skits include a man being attacked by his apartment, a funeral hosted by classic comedians, and a teen-age boy's big night turning into a nightmare. Written by

Scenes featuring two veteran character actors, Lyle Talbot
and Dan Seymour
, were cut from the finished film. Seymour played Dr. Muggs McGinty, a seedy racetrack doctor who treats Mary Brown in the "Reckless Youth" segment, and Talbot appeared as Prescott Townsend, head of the "American Space Association" in the "Amazon Women On the Moon" segment. Talbot's deleted scene is included in the Special Features on the movie's Collector's Edition DVD. See more
