Did You Know?

Goofs

This short implies that George Lucas got the inspiration of the Howard the Duck movie from a pet duck named Howard. This is false as Steve Gerber and Val Mayerik were the actual creators of the Howard the Duck comic. George Lucas only served as a producer for the movie adaption and had no involvement with the creation of the character. See more »

Quotes

Professor: No. Search not. Inspiration will you not find. It will find you.
George: Could you talk forward?

A great short
14 June 2003 | by rbverhoefSee all my reviews

This is one of the funniest short films I have ever seen. The references to Star Wars are great and the ending is just perfect. If you like a spoof with a little intelligence you will definitely like this short. Great.
