Fresh wood chips should not be this appealing
15 August 2005 | by (Coastal Maine) – See all my reviews

Herk Harvey and Centron bring us another little instructional piece of fantasy, this time regarding shop class. A bespectacled young man (who looks likes my dad when he was in high school) discusses with his Mickey Mouse-eared friend on why he loves shop class. He narrates about his fantasy through the short, including his career discussion with his shop teacher, who does not resemble any shop teacher I ever had in high school. Anyway the discussion leads to another discussion about shop with the basketball coach, who states that shop never helped him, yet it did since he now has a ready made hobby of building giant recipe card boxes.

MST has a field day with this short, I would think 95-100% of anything put out by Centron would be great material for the gang from Best Brains.
