They want their little gold jackets back
9 November 2001 | by DomitianSee all my reviews

Yeah, what to say. Two teens, who look like members of the Hitler youth, explore the Seattle world's fair, grope an Asiatic woman, tour the "Bell Atlantic Phone Pavillion", and basically run around like a couple of perky, obnoxious airheads. Very humorous, if not just for the stunning accuracy of the predictions in future phone technology (PUSH BUTTON PHONING). One of the best bits is where a tour guide proudly shows off the "Electronic Bellboy": essentially a GIGANTIC, OBTRUSIVE pager. Very elaborate systems of phone use are discussed, one of which is the ability to turn off the oven or air condition from a phone. The climax and song on the Space Needle is not to be missed. This short is available on the episode of MST3K with the film "Space Children" which is also bad.
