Many of us remember Christopher Lee way before he was Count Dooku or Saruman, as a B actor best know for his Hammer "Dracula" films. Here's a chance to see Chris in his former glory: as a stereotypical Asian villain complete with slanted eyes, a "Fu Manchu" mustache (well, I guess he *is* playing Fu Manchu here) and looking embarrassed in a bad, bad movie.

This experiment gets a bad rap - it's actually pretty funny.

323- THE CASTLE OF FU-MANCHU

First shown: 1/18/92
Opening: The SOL's Teen Club
Invention exchange: The bots offer an extremely useful telephone transducer chip, while all Joel has is the big head (again), the Joe Besser "Stinky" Bomb
Host segment 1: Crow decries "The Miss Saigon Syndrome," J&TB become distraught, the Mads are pleased
Host segment 2: The Shriner Flying Carpet sketch collapses into weeping; delighted, the Mads order out
Host segment 3: The bots are inconsolable, Joel tries to cheer them up with the story of Fu-Manchu, but the pain becomes too much. The Mads celebrate
End: J&TB are utterly beaten, the Mads toast their victory and are so cocky they try to riff the film themselves! Gotcha!
Stinger: Monkey pile on the castle guard!
