Method to Her Madness

Plot

In the 1950s, Skippy, who talks like a beatnik, attends the New York Actor's Studio, which Slappy scoffs at.

Crew

Trivia

  • Several real-life actors appear in the studio: Marilyn Monroe, Liza Minnelli, Marlon Brando, James Dean, Jack Nicholson, and others. The class is run by Lee Stressbird, a parody of legendary actor, director, and theatre practitioner Lee Strasberg.
  • The scenes Skippy reads with Brando contain lines from films for which Brando would later become famous: the "contender" scene from On the Waterfront, screaming "Stella!" from A Streetcar Named Desire, and "an offer he can't refuse" from The Godfather.
  • Dot makes a cameo appearance at the beginning.

All the Words in the English Language (Part 3)

Plot

Yakko, approaching the Zs of the dictionary, begins singing slower out of extreme energy, until collapsing due to the lack of energy just before approaching the last Z word in the dictionary. Yakko eventually gets back up with his remaining energy and sings the last word, completing the song. Yakko is then congratulated, while Dick Button invites the viewers to watch Yakko sing all the numbers above zero for the next show, which causes Yakko to faint.
