In the beginning, Peter says he got three Stephen King
books, "Stand By Me", "Misery", and "The Shawshank Redemption". The movie Stand by Me
(1986) is actually based on the King novella "The Body"; The Shawshank Redemption
(1994) is based on the novella "Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption". Both novellas were published together in the book "Different Seasons". Not only are there no King novels titled "Stand By Me" or "The Shawshank Redemption", but Peter could not have checked out three different books from the library. See more
Hi, it's me, Peter, your TV cartoon pal. You know, Lois has been bitching lately that I watch too much TV and don't read enough books. So I went to the library and picked up three books by the greatest author of the last thousand years, Stephen King. And tonight, I'd like to share them with you. We begin with a little tale called "Stand By Me", about four young boys who went looking for a dead body, and instead found... themselves... and also a dead body.
