Rip Taylor (born Charles Elmer Taylor, Jr. on January 13, 1934 in Washington D.C.), is an openly gay American actor and comedian.
Taylor is known for his high-voiced yells, zany hair (which is a toupée), and bushy handlebar moustache over a perpetual toothy grin. He always enters a venue tossing handfuls of confetti from a paper bag onto his audience and laughing hysterically, while the band plays his theme song, "Happy Days Are Here Again."
Taylor's comedic style includes horrible puns, often in conjunction with props (for example, holding up a plastic fish full of holes and exclaiming "Holy Mackerel!") and miming along to novelty records (including the works of Spike Jones). If he gets little or no reaction following one of his jokes, he stops for a moment and yells at the audience: "I don't dance, folks! This is it!" Or, "Hello? Can you people hear me?"
Rip's original stand-up persona did not include the trademark moustache, toupee, and loud suit. Instead he appeared clean-shaven...

Tom and Jerry: The Movie is a 1993 animated feature film, the first feature to star Turner Entertainment's cat-and-mouse team Tom and Jerry, and the only Tom and Jerry feature to be released theatrically worldwide, although Tom and Jerry: The Fast and the Furry was theatrically released in select cities of the US by Kidtoon Films.
The film is a departure from the typical Tom and Jerry cartoons: Tom and Jerry have a new look in this film, giving spoken dialogue lines they didn't have in the cartoons. The duo works together to help an orphan girl in trouble, and the film contains numerous musical numbers. The film was received poorly by critics and viewers alike.
Richard Kind provided the voice of Thomas "Tom" Jasper Cat, and Dana Hill provided the voice of Gerald "Jerry" Mouse. Tom & Jerry creator Joe Barbera sevred as creative consultant for the picture, his partner Bill Hanna was absent from the project. The film was directed by Phil Roman, produced by Film Roman for Turner...,
DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp is an animated film released by The Walt Disney Company in 1990; it is based on the animated series DuckTales.
In this film, Scrooge McDuck, Huey, Dewey and Louie, Webby Vanderquack and Launchpad McQuack search for the treasure of Collie Baba and his forty thieves. They find a magic lamp and a genie that can grant them all kinds of wishes. Unfortunately, Merlock the Magician (voiced by Christopher Lloyd) wants that lamp, and he and his sidekick, Dijon the Thief, would do anything to get their hands on it.
It is interesting to note that a preceding episode of DuckTales, Master of the Djinni, featured a race to collect a magic lamp. However, the lamp and genie featured in the episode appear to have no connection to the one in this movie.
The film begins with two things: an eagle flying over a canyon, and Launchpad McQuack flying his biplane through the canyon in his usual method for flying, much to the fright of Scrooge McDuck and the...,

They hire the stoners to drive the limousine to Las Vegas, but along the way, Cheech and Chong find themselves strapped for cash, so they start selling pieces of the car. When the Arabs find out that Cheech and Chong have delivered what remains of the car without any money in it, they go after the duo to try and kill them, and find them inside a porno theater showing a "hidden camera" film of the stoners having sex with...
