Trivia

When Poncherello and Bruce Nelson are leaving the comic book store, Elvira tells them "Unpleasant dreams..." This was a line she used in her then-airing program Movie Macabre (1981). See more »

Goofs

Elvira calls Central Station to tell Ponch that she has some news. Instead of just speaking to Ponch on the phone, she has him visit her at the comic-book store, yet what she tells him could have easily been relayed over the phone. It makes sense that Elvira might want to see Ponch and Bruce again, but Ponch shouldn't waste time and gas without even inquiring over the phone what Elvira knows. See more »

So Bad It's Amazingly Good
11 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

I sat down to watch this episode thinking I was going to get bored after 10 minutes and turn it off, but after 10 minutes I was complete hooked. I couldn't stop watching! This might be one of the most ludicrous and bizarre episode in the history of TV, and of course that makes it "must see TV".

Everything and the kitchen sink is in this episode. It's so "out there" that it really is hard to describe, you really do have to see it. Just when you think it can't get any more weird it gets more weird. Just when you think it can't throw any more surprises at you it throws another one at you. And it does all this with its own sense of crazy fun. So even though you know it's "bad" you can't help but smile each time they throw something else your way. Hey, at least they tried to do something unusual, and boy did they succeed, even if it is so-bad-it's-good kind of entertainment.
