aka Maciste Vs. The Headhunters. "In a Time of Titans, Colossus Towered Above All!!!" Overexposed Italian muscleman everybeef Maciste fights... (spins the wheel of antagonists) ...evil island tribesmen. Whoever the heck Colossus is, he's not in the movie. It's probably only an inability to shoehorn this into Greek myth that's the reason translators didn't try to turn this into another Hercules movie. This is the episode with Nummy Muffin Coocol Butter. Promos (1m) YouTube (1h32m) Premiered August 20, 1994.

I will be there and I will be square, and I will try to up my chatwindow riffing game just to help out those of you who are down. (Not that I'm not too... but I've worked the 'laugh through the tears' process before like the no-makeup clown I am)

I have a chorus rehearsal, so I will probably miss this one which is a shame. It's another one of my favorites.

Well, in your honor, wittgenstein, we should show the Bugs Bunny cartoon with the mini musical number:
"Oh we're the boys of the chorus,
We hope you like our show.
We know you're rooting for us,
But now we have to go-o-o-o"
