| What's wrong with it? Heck if I know...
I've read a few bad-type reviews on this, but that just shows what I know. i think Stay Tuned is one of the funnier movies to roll along in a while. Yeah, it's filled with TV rejects like Ritter, Dawber, and Levy, but they're still kinda funny. The funniest thing are the TV parodies (yes, they're funny, dammit), and the whole parody of the modern entertainment industry. Plus you've got a great Chuck Jones cartoon set right in the middle. Moves along just fast enough to keep your interest, and the characters are just tolerable enough you don't want to turn off on it. As was noted, it grows on you.

When Daryl goes to steal power from the neighbor's house, he removes the electric meter and uses booster cable type clamps on the lugs. Removing the meter would cut power to the neighbor's house. However in subsequent shots, there are lights on both inside the house and in the yard.

Crazy Credits

Chuck Jones' credit is in a different typeface to the rest of the credits. It is in a handwritten style.
