Storyline

New Year's 2000 is approaching, and Spooner Street is preparing for a big holiday bash. When Peter hears about the impending disaster of Y2K, however, he panics and locks the family in the basement. His fears turn out to be well-founded when the world's computer systems go haywire and civilization is destroyed by atomic blasts. After digging out of the rubble, the family decides to travel to the Natick Twinkie factory in the hopes of finding food and building a new town. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Trivia

It is shown that Peter gets into long, bloody brawls with a giant chicken named Ernie. Their rivalry originated from a flashback when Ernie gave Peter an expired coupon for a local market. See more »

Goofs

(at around 6 mins) The world map on the monitor spells out "Happy New Year", with the Y slightly misshapen. A few seconds later, the Y is not misshapen, even though one of the generals point out that it is. See more »

Quotes

[a U.S. map at a military base shows 'Happy New Year' lit up on the map]
Military Sergeant: Very nice, lieutenant.
Military Tech Guy: Actually, all of those lights represent missiles that went off. The pattern is just a coincidence.
Military Sergeant: Come to think of it, that Y is a bit off. Still, it looks nice.
