Transcript:Saturday Morning Fun Pit
Sergeant : Mr. President. I found the TV remote.
Nixon : Good work, Sergeant. I'm awarding you the purple heart.
Sergeant : But I wasn't injured.
[Nixon shoots a gun at him, then opens a trap door] Ow! [Screams]
Nixon : Well, enough governing. It's Saturday morning, damn it. Let's watch some cartoons.
[Grunts] Announcer: It's time to fall into The Futurama and Friends Saturday Morning Fun Pit! Here comes Bendee-Boo and the Mystery Crew!
Lead Singer : ♪ Bendee, Bendee-Boo, what's wrong with you? ♪ You're such a lousy mascot. ♪ No one understands a single word you say. ♪ Not even the jerk in the ascot.
Bendee Boo : Rite my riny retal rass! [Owl hoots] [Repeated hooting]
[Cut to the Mystery Express vehicle]
Leela : It sure was nice of your nephew to invite us to his cloning lab here in the repeating forest.
Fry : Hey, like, here's a puzzler. How old are we on a scale of 14 to 32?
[Laugh track plays]
Fry : Did anyone else hear that weird laugh? It's spooky.
Leela : It doesn't seem to correspond to anything funny happening.
Fry : I'll say.
[Laugh track plays]
[Spooky music plays]
Dragon Ghost : Turn around. Go away. Do it now.
Bendee Boo : Rikes!
Fry : Splinkies! What was that?
Leela : I don't know.
Hermes : It's a mystery.
Fry : Like, I've got a bigger mystery. How am I going to fill my hungry stomach?
[Laugh track plays]
Fry : Yeah. Leela : Where can we find food here in the woods? How about that Kabuki Theater?
Fry : Like, where there's a Kabuki Theater, there's a concession stand.
[Laugh track plays]
[Cut to inside Kabuki Theatre]
Hermes : Say, Fry, why do you always have the munchies? And also your eyes are bloodshot, you're paranoid, and the van has a skunky odor.
Fry : Search me. No, don't. I'm carrying. [Chuckles]
[Laugh track plays]
[Spooky scream] [Screaming] [Laughing]
[They try to run but don't get anywhere. This is because this is always what happens on Scooby Doo although George claims it's because his floor has butter on it]
George Takei : I do enjoy a well-buttered floor.
All except Bendee Boo : George Takei?
Bendee Boo : Reorge rakei?
George Takei : Sorry to haunt you so effectively. I thought you kids were that dragon ghost that's been spooking the town.
Fry : Like, what's the story with the Yakitori?
George Takei : Help yourselves. But I warn you, that chicken is over a year old.
[Laugh track plays]
Amy : Why is the food in your concession stand so old, Mr. Takei?
George Takei : You see, Amy, this used to be the most popular Kabuki Theater in the entire outskirts of town. But people stopped coming after they built that darned basketball arena.
[Brief shot of the arena. Spooky music plays]
George Takei : Now everybody likes basketball instead of Kabuki. It's an insult to my Japanese heritage.
Amy : How so? This is America, not Japan.
George Takei : Maybe so. I'm not sure. Now, how many tickets would you like for the show?
Fry : Like, none. But thanks for the yucky-tori. [Chuckles]
George Takei : Another grave insult to my ancestry. [Laugh track plays] [Doorbell rings]
Leela : Nu? Is this the Professor's cloning lab?
Zoidberg : Cloning is a sin against nature! But yes. Follow me to the Professor's cloning room. [Machine beeps, trills] You see, I'm his Butler. Ah, my Uncle Fry and his mystery-solving friends. Perhaps you can make sense of the What is it that's been haunting us, Zoidberg? Ghost. [Screams] Now then, let me show you my lab. This is my cloning machine. This is where I keep various lengths of wire. And those are the Harlem Globetrotters. - All: The Globetrotters? - Bender: Ruh robe-rotters? What you doing wearing an ascot, brother? I think it looks nice. [Laugh track plays] Whoa, whoa, whoa [Sputtering] [Laugh track plays] What are you Globetrotters doing here? We're in town for the big game. And we stopped by to help our friend, the Professor, with his cloning machine. Just call me the clone prince of basketball. [Laugh track plays] Like, it's basketball superstar Larry Bird! Larry Bird, what are you doing here? Hi. This is Larry Bird calling. Listen, my Agent sent me that cartoon script, and I've decided I don't want to be involved in any way. [Beep] Nice to meet you, Larry Bird. Okay, let's clone us a whole team of Larry Birds. Now we can practice for the big game. We figure, if we can beat five Larry Birds, we can beat anybody. Cloning is wrong. It's wrong, I say! Oh, I just hope that mysterious dragon ghost doesn't show up at the lab again. But why would a ghost want to stop the Globetrotters from practicing? And against a team of clones, no less. Well, gang, it looks like we've got more of the same mystery on our hands. [Thunder crashes] [Snoring] Like, the real mystery is how I'm gonna get any sleep with all this noise. I need some air. [Screams] It's me, the dragon ghost. We met before. Like, yikes! [Crashing sound] [Laugh track plays] It's time to spring into action, gang. Okay Rabbit goes around the tree There. All right, it's time to get to the bottom of what, at this point, can only be called a mystery. Let's split up. Eight of us will stay here with this dragon trap the Professor built. Hermes: Meanwhile, Fry, Bendee, you go look for the dragon. Like, you guys are terrible friends for always sending us to our deaths. - I'm not going. - Re reither! Would you do it for a Bendee Brew? Ro-kay. Ri'm a ralcoholic. [Laugh track plays] ♪ Yummy yummy yummy, I got love in my tummy. ♪ And I feel like a-loving you. ♪ Love, you're such a sweet thing. Good enough to eat thing. ♪ And that's just a-what I'm gonna do. ♪ Ooh, love to hold you. ♪ Ooh, love to kiss you. ♪ Ooh, love, I love it so. ♪ Ooh, love, I love it so. ♪ Ooh, love, you're sweeter. ♪ Sweeter than sugar. ♪ Ooh, love, I won't let you go [Laugh track plays] All right, gang. I think we have all the clues we need to solve the mystery of the haunted cloning machine. Only one person took issue with the ethical ramifications of cloning and also had access to this castle. The Butler, Dr. Zoidberg! Let's see who this so-called Butler really is. Oops. Never mind. Here, take this. [Laugh track plays] Whoa, whoa, whoa [sputtering] May he rest in peace. Hey, there's a dragon in this trap! Help. Help. Let's see who this dragon ghost really is. All: George Takei? That's right. And I would never have gotten away with it, regardless of you meddling kids. But, like, that dragon ghost was hovering and translucent. Yes. You see, I used the projector from my Kabuki Theater. But Kabuki Theaters don't have a projector. Some do. It all makes sense. He knew that if he scared the Globetrotters away from the big basketball game, disappointed fans would flock to his Kabuki Theater. Of course! No, that's not why I did it. Then, like, why did you do it? I'm mentally ill. [Laugh track plays] [Crowd cheering] Thanks for helping solve the mystery. After practicing against five Larry Birds, we're ready for anything. Announcer: And now, introducing the opponents Six Larry Birds! [Crowd cheers] [Laughing] Bendee-Bendee-Boo! [Crowd clamoring] What's all this ruckus? People live here, you know. Mr. President, our children are fat and dumb, and we blame cartoons. It's time to get government onto our backs. We demand you regulate children's programming and force the writers to shoehorn in helpful lessons. Fine, fine. Get off my lawn. I'll have Agnew put in a call to Hollywood. [Grunting] All right, let's laugh and learn. Announcer: And now, the show that teaches kids to eat right and have a good time [Chuckling]: All while tolerating others. This will shut up those whining hippies.
