Horshack joins a religious cult
23 June 2016 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"The Deprogramming of Arnold Horshack" finds the nerdy Sweathog joining the religious cult of Baba Bibi, now answering to a new name, Abu Kareem Hasan. The Baba's main phrase: "what is is, what was will be, what will be was, but will be again!" There are two things he has learned from the Baba: "love a lot of people, sell a lot of flowers!" Mr. Woodman knows all about the cult that brainwashes young kids: "my kinda guy!" Julie admits getting thrown out of a hippie commune back in Nebraska: "they caught me doing my nails!" Tired of the constant taunts from his fellow Sweathogs, Horshack has decided to quit school and go live with the Baba. Ellen Travolta makes the second of three appearances as Arnold's mother.
