From our laboratory in the castle east -- which has some pretty lousy acoustics -- we bring you the first half of a two-part creature feature on movie monsters.

This is only tangentially related to this episode, but every time I scan over the list of episodes, I read this one as "Classic Cookie Monsters." Drew will know why.
