Battle of the Bulge

Episode #21: Battle of the Bulge

Rating: **½

AD: 10/9/89
D: John Kimball, Bob Zamboni
SEd: Bryce Malek
W: Dev Ross, Tad Stones
RSC: Fat Cat, Mepps, Mole, Wart, Spinelli, Kirby, Muldoon
Voices: Corey Burton -- fat bat with sombrero
Peter Cullen -- Monterey Jack, little bat, helicopter pilot
Jim Cummings -- TV announcer voice
Tress MacNeille -- Lady Richmore, radio voice
Rob Paulsen -- Chief Marley, "Boss" bat


Major theme: Monty has to diet.  Was inevitable they'd use it sooner or later, but not the contiguous theme of other RR being dragged into it as well.

"Aerobic Exercising with Dev": reference to writer/voice dir. Dev Ross.

Some mildly risque bits: C&D convinced to go for early AM jog by sight of Gadget in Spandex and final gag of fully clad RR jumping into Monty's Alka Seltzer bath with (presumably) naked Monty inside.

Jamaican fruit bats funny incidental characters -- funny how FC snubs his gang so quickly when new partners in crime hold promise of more riches.  Appeared same year as Sebastian -- !!

Nebulous "police chief" (mentioned a few times but changes appearance each time he appears) has a name here, Chief Marley (|| Bob Marley of reggae fame?).

"Banana! Banana!" -- reference to old hippie chant and belief that smoking bananas was hallucinogenic!
