Minor Continuity Glitch–Patriot’s first name is Dillon, not Darnel.
Or its Zodon not caring about what he calls him?
Alternatively, Zo’ could be like Walter Bishop when it comes to names.
Agreed, he’s just sassing the guy.
And then he may also get alternate universe’s Patriot’s name correctly.
It’s so SAD that Zodon doesn’t care if he gets his name right… and that Dillon is so used to it that he doesn’t even object anymore…
What’s sadder is that this may have been a case of the author getting Dillon’s name wrong. Whoops!
My mind is hearing the sound effects of the Showcase Showdown wheel from THE PRI¢E IS RIGHT.
My mind is hearing the sound effects from Stargate, which is what I think this is supposed to resemble.
No way… Too straight. Definitely both. I bet Aaron thought of PisR while watching SG1 and we get a combo satire.. The best kind. Kinda like trying to call 911 about a maniac with a combo flashlight screw driver killing people… from a blue British police phone box, getting put on hold and finding the hold music is the Dr. Who theme… But Aaron’s more subtle than I am.
Mind you the contraption does resemble the SG earth home gate “A” Ā symbol from the unit patch.
Come on 1$…
“Wheel of Morality, turn turn turn. Tell us the lesson that we may learn!”
Now why does that sound so familiar?
“Number 4…Free trip to Tahiti!”
It was a gag used at the end of some of the Warner Brothers’ (and Warner Sister) segments from Animaniacs.
I think you mean every Episode, so that it met the bare minimum requirements to stay listed as an “educational cartoon”. =P
Ironically enough, the “Wheel of Morality” gag was very seldom used on “Animaniacs”. I get the impression the writers hated it, since it’s a heavy handed way to teach morals that either have nothing to do with the episode in question, or are diametrically opposed to the episode in question. (See for example, “He-Man and the Masters of the Universe”, which had the most shoehorned morals, most of which contradicted the events in the episode or have no real world applicability; contrast the “G.I. Joe” PSAs, which were fun and informative about real world issues, like gun safety, first aid, fire safety, staying away from railroad tracks, or water safety.)
I don’t believe the “Wheel” ever landed on it, but I distinctly remember it having a “Bankrupt” space (ala “Wheel of Fortune”).
Which fits, since the show was morally bankrupt anarchy bordering on nihilism (especially where the Warners were concerned). Fun, in limited doses.
So was Histeria!, come to think of it.
am I the only one wondering if USA Patriot bent the pieces he was holding when he spun it?
You are not! With that stance limiting his range of motion and certain muscle groups tightening in place, I can only imagine how much force traveled through the center of those handles.
