A Civil War-era secret agent with an extraordinary special power serves under president Abraham Lincoln protecting America from supernatural foes. Unsold animated TV pilot adapted from a short comic book from the creator of Hellboy.
Unsold animated TV pilot adapted from a short comic book from the creator of Hellboy. Enlisted in President Abraham Lincoln's secret service, the amazing agent Screw-On Head is the bravest and most dedicated operative, even though at first glance, he is nothing more than a disembodied mechanical head. However, with the exotic ability to screw itself onto a wide variety of robotic bodies, the Head is eager to accept missions his human colleagues don't even dare to pursue. Along with his faithful valet, Mr Groin, Screw-On Head goes on a mission to save America against the ghastly Emperor Zombie and his evil plan to unleash an ancient Demigod on earth. Can the mechanical super-spy foil the megalomaniac's schemes?Written by
The comic book story from which the animation was based finished with four random drawings of three horrible old women (labeled as "werewolf", "cannibal" and "criminal lunatic") and a monkey. The monkey and two of these women are featured in the animation as actual characters, the woman left out being the 'criminal lunatic'. See more »
You let America down...
You let me down. You went on and on about how sweet the candy was, then told me not to put it in my mouth, and got mad at me when I did.
If by "candy," you mean ancient forbidden evil, then yes, I told you not to put it in your mouth.
Patience the Vampire:
I think your forbidden evil is fresh as a daisy.
Thank you, darling.

This is rife with possibilities, showing that contemporary comic book art and stories could move into mainstream visual entertainment. The bizarre title sort of tells it all in that a disembodied robot head can be attached to a host of bodies. There are great villains and the plotsyn are surreal. I am a sucker for this as David Lynch's style is so attractive to me.
