"Cookery Crock"'s host Angus Crock (Dave Thomas) welcomes war criminal Dr. Joseph Mengele (played by Joe Flaherty à la Gregory Peck), who injects a hormone serum into a casserole. The director/host of "The Freddie de Cordova Show" (Flaherty) interviews guests while remaining just outside camera range. Jack Klugman (Flaherty) as "Quincy Cartoon Coroner" grills Tweety Bird and Spike the dog to find out how Sylvester the cat was flattened to death. And the McKenzie Brothers (Thomas, Rick Moranis) discuss more "things that bug them" (the last-named sketch was removed from the U.S. syndicated version of this episode).
