Storyline

William Shakespeare's classic play comes partially to life in this Made for German TV production. During Mike's introduction to the viewers, Tom announces he's changed his name to Htom Sirveaux (sounds the same, but it's not). Pearl's development of a new deadly virus that can kill off half the world's population by next morning is forgotten when Mike hustles Pearl into sending him a movie of his choice, though he should've been more specific with his suggestion. Crow and Tom try pretending to be the ghost of Mike's father, except that Mike's father is alive and well. The Bots begin storyboarding their own productions of Hamlet and even go as far as enacting an all musical instrument version to Mike. Mike and the Bots then play a rousing game of "Alas Poor, Who?" and have to try identifying a famous celebrity based solely on one of their bones. In the end, the Bots reveal their Hamlet action figure complete with a dialogue pull string, but the string is a little longer than Mike is ... Written by Titus Yorick
