OMG!!!! I've been looking for this FOREVER!!!!
22 November 2008 | by sugarpatch22See all my reviews

I am screaming with excitement as I type this!!! I have had this vague memory of a movie we used to watch in grade school (maybe around 1976-1979-ish) on rainy days in the school's auditorium. All I could remember is crazy pancakes that made all those swirls and polka dots when people would eat them. Here is my google search that I just did - "1970's crazy pancake movie" - hahahaha!!! We moved out of the town I grew up just before high school so I lost touch with all of my childhood friends and had no one to ask about this wacky memory!! I cannot tell you how excited I am. Now I am off to go find out where I can buy, rent or just watch this thing online somewhere!!! Anyone know where?
