The inventive and prolific Bill Plymton (The Tune, Mondo Plympton) scripted, directed, and animated this 73-minute Italtoons animated feature. Newlyweds Grant and Kelly encounter an ongoing parade of surreal situations after energy eruptions from a TV satellite dish raises a lobe on the back of Grant's neck. The lobe makes any fantasy come true, heightening the couple's sexual experiences, but media mogul Larson Giles wants the lobe in order to control TV viewers. Heading Giles' army is Colonel Ferguson, who also desires the lobe for himself. Grant turns Ferguson into a lizard and renders the soldiers helpless so they begin shooting sandwiches instead of missiles. Kelly and Grant flee as the violence escalates. Shown at 1997 film festivals (Toronto, Palm Springs, Sundance).
