Quotes

[first lines]
Doctor: Mr. Twiddle, you are a very sick man. You have a serious case of trombonosis. Now, I would suggest complete relaxation at some quiet, remote hideaway, because if you do not get away from these noisy horns, your entire nervous system will shatter. You will just blow up!
[Mr. Twiddle recoils in shock]
Doctor: My wife here will give you our recommended travel folders.

This took me years to track this down
5 August 2007 | by LiLTORTYASee all my reviews

I have been asking around for simply years for this cartoon but I never knew how many H's were in the title to be able to search correctly.

Well, I will do my best to purchase it at whatever the cost.

This cartoon is by far of my dear favorites of all time. The hilarity of beyond funny. True comedic situations that is leaps and bounds in the same direction but way ahead of its time of the great Simpsons cartoons. Having realistic themes with outlandish results is what makes this cartoon fantastic. I cannot stop laugh when I see this or even think of it. On www.youtube.com I can only find this cartoon in french I believe it is in. If only I can find it in English, I'll be one grateful camper.

The horns, the laughing nurse, the signs at the resort ...everything is over the top genius.
