Short Reviews of RiffTrax Shorts: Lunchroom Manners

It's Short Reviews of RiffTrax Shorts, our new series where the title is almost as long as the actual reviews!  We are going to take a look at a RiffTrax Short every day this year, until we run out of shorts.  That will get us through the majority of the year, so strap in for madness!

(Released February 21, 2008)

Mister Bungle.  He's filthy.  He's rude.  He's messy.  He's killed twelve men.  

Okay, maybe that last one isn't true(we really don't know).  No one likes him, and no one wants to be like him.  Especially not Phil.  Phil makes sure his hands are nice and clean(the kid uses half of the soap in the dispenser), and his buzz cut is all in place before he eats the piece of cake as big as his head and drinks two different kinds of milk.

There is so much to like in this short!  The overabundance of soap, the sad puppet, the giant cake, and of course the repetitive angry/pained cries of "BUNGLE!"

And not only is this another Coronet short—I told you there were going to be a lot—but this is also the first in their Beginning Responsibility series.  We will see many, many more of these.

Lunchroom Manners is the first short that is going to get the PB&A ESSENTIAL seal.  Everyone who likes RiffTrax should own this one.

See? It's got a fancy stamp and everything!
Obviously, it gets five Mister Bungles out of five.
