Episode cast overview:
Jim Mallon ...
Frank Conniff ...


Mike and the 'bots are forced to watch the dreary educational short Is This Love? (1957) with its stiff actors and at least one middle-age "youth." Next is the horrifyingly bad Terror in the Night (1964), where a mysterious serial killer is less off-putting than Mikey, the sniveling girl-boy; the sickening bubblegum song, "Yipe Stripes"; and office scenes filmed in the boys' locker room. Meanwhile, Mike tries to call his grandma. Dr. Forrester invents the FrankNForcer to keep TV's Frank out of his hair. Mike and the 'bots counter with the Waiter-Baiter. Mike reads Crow and Servo the poetry of e.e. cummings and debates with them on the merits of showbiz love. Mike raps with the 'bots when they pose as rival gang members. A pair of electrically-charged glasses turn Mike into the sniveling Mikey in the film. To close the show, Mike sings an ode to janitors. Written by J. Spurlin
