TV kiddie show host Muley Graves (Harold Ramis) shows the classic "Three Dummies" two-reeler "Of Mice and Dummies," with John Candy as Curly, Eugene Levy as Moe, Joe Flaherty as Larry, and Catherine O'Hara as Margaret Dumont (how did she get in there?) But Muley's inherent Bolshevism gets the better of him, and he ends up guest-starring in the SCTV Movie of the Week, "The Grapes of Mud" in which Preacher Casy (Levy) tells us way too many times that he's "lost the callin'" and Tom Joad (Flaherty) ends up in Arizona (rather than California). Also: "SCTV AM News Today" offers highlights from the International Association of Terrorists Picnic, and exclusive footage of emcee Bob Barker (really Dave Thomas) going berserk on the set of Truth or Consequences.
