| Wow - what a goofy movie!
What do I say? Can you sit through 90 minutes of TV's Vic Tayback as an ancient Egyptian official? Can you suspend your sense of the ridiculous long enough to watch a pee-wee league football player run around the Firestone Tire factory? Can you wrap your head around the fact that the director of "Ransom" also had a hand in this goofy televisual experience? I can - and you can too, when you watch this... thing. It's hilarious for all of the wrong reasons. I knew it was silly when I was 10 years old - and I certainly know it now. Yet, it's an experience I cannot forget.

"Tut and Tuttle" (originally titled "Through the Magic Pyramid") is a colossal example of bad 80's television. It's like the moldy casserole that you left in the fridge way too long. You have to open it. Then you have to share it with someone - anyone - right away! Here! you gotta smell this!
