An All-Star Spectacular!!
2 August 2009 | by See all my reviews

After Scrooge makes money from a large lot of old tires Glumgold sold him (Scrooge sold them to the neighborhood children as tire swings), Glumgold makes a bet with Scrooge that Scrooge couldn't make a fortune out of anything. Scrooge says he can.

So Glumgold points Scrooge to the Uncrashable Hindentanic! The Hindentanic was an abandoned dirigible apparently, tucked away in a hangar.

Scrooge begins promotion immediately, gaining the notice of faded screen actress Gloria Swansong, and her trusty aide, Quacks (taken from Max in the original movie, Sunset Boulevard), nevermind that Quacks is a pig.

Invited along is filmmaker Irwin Mallard, astronomer Carl Sagander and John D. Rockefeather and his honey bees he is transporting as well.

Gloria Swansong smuggles in as a nurse for a patient undergoing a beak transplant (Linda Blair from Airport '75 and sort of Cicely Tyson in Concorde: Airport '79).

Also on board is Glumgold, disguised as an Arab (?), who is ready for sabotage!! So the stage is set for the animated parody of disaster films, with Sagander noting they are heading toward a meteor shower, Rockefeather's bees getting loose and Launchpad being the rejected pilot who must save the day.

The inclusion of the bees (The Swarm, 1979) is a good chuckle, and I suppose the meteor shower is derived from Meteor, with Natalie Wood and Brian Keith.

The best line is definitely delivered by Duckworth, the butler (is that his name?) as he sees Gloria Swansong, he tells her he remembers her movies when he was a kid and they didn't let him see them without a ticket either, and boots her away from the Hindentanic.
