Is there a spamusement election I don't know about?

THERE'S A FURBY ON THE WING!!! THERE'S A FURBY ON THE WING!!!


(XD It reminds me of one old episode of Johnny Brove that parodied The Twilight Zone. There was a clown on the wing. Good times, good times...)

Surely it should remind you of the actual episode of The Twighlight Zone?

Except if, perhaps, you didn't see the actual episode, but have heard about it. It's a classic. It's also in the Simpsons in one of the Halloween specials. But the creature is destroying the School bus instead.

I actually watched the episode again with my family right before reading this. Spectacular.

Is the Twighlight Zone still on TV? Or do I have to continue searching for it?

Personally, I don't know whether I'd be more scared to see a Furby on the plane or a gremlin. Furbies always scared the hell out of me.

I never saw this famous episode, how did it go?

Even without getting the reference, this strip freaked me out.

The episode, as I remember it, is about a man (Shatner) flying home after being released from a mental institution. Once the plane is in the air, however, he sees a gremlin type creature tearing apart the wing. However, nobody else sees it, and his sanity is brought into question. Don't remember how it ends though... Anybody?

I know how it ends in the movie, but not the series.

I believe they end in a similar manner. There is physical damage to the plane that is seen by the viewer, but the protagonist still gets carted away by men in white coats.

Yeah the ending was the same exact thing.

The whole *gasp* the plane is damaged, yet the poor guy is getting dragged away for being "insane."

I don't know which gremlin was scarier, though. The low-tech-yet seemingly-real one of the episode, or the...more gross looking one from the movie. Bleh.

Either way, I'd prefer to see NOTHING on my airplane's wing. NOTHING. Not even wind. Go away wind.

The ending for that portion of the movie was a throwback to the beginning of the movie where the guys in the car are driving in the desert and one becomes a monster and eats the other guy. That's why it can't be EXACTLY the same.

Yes. Why, I remember the days when I was Scottish. It was a wonderful time. My father ran around in kilts. My mother played the bagpipes. 'Twas wondrous.

There are loads of kilt shops in Edinburgh. It's like the place is a stereotype of itself. They're all for tourists. Kilts were a recent invention, anyway.
