Storyline

A man is unable to play golf with his buddies because he has to fix the springs in the family couch. Frustrated, he wishes aloud that he never has to deal with another spring in his life. Coily the Spring Sprite then appears and grants his wish! The man quickly learns that springs are everywhere and are essential for the working of just about everything he owns, from his front door to his wristwatch and his automobile. Coily returns everything to normal and, having seen the light, the man becomes an unstoppable champion of the role of springs in today's world. Written by yortsnave

NOOOOOOOO SPRINGS MY FRIEND, NOOOOOOOOOOO SPRINGS!!!!!!! HEHEHEHEHEH!!!! BOING This is easily one of the most disturbing of all the "I wish that ____ didn't exist" type of 1950's short films ever made. A man, who looks like Eleanor Roosevelt, gets fed up from fixing his sofa and wishes never to see another spring as long as he lives. It's up to COILY (I kid you not, that's his name) the spring sprite they call him, to show him the error of his ways. Possibly one of the top 5 funniest shorts ever to be mocked on MST3K, up there with Chicken of Tomorrow and MR. B Natural.
