Charcoal Fever III

Tommy and Rusty enter college and become fans of David Lynch: a combination that produces the weirdest installment of Fun With Numbers. There's lots of style over substance (and often over comedy); sometimes things work, sometimes they don't... but it's always entertaining. In addition to the freak-out segments (including "Stayin' Alive," The Bushhead Trilogy, "Cookie Bar?" and "Po' Folks," there are also the classic music videos "Magic" and "The Backwards Video" as well as what is perhaps the quintessential Cooter Ray show, featuring Jerry Toby as played by new feature player Noby Nobriga. Noby is the "III" of Charcoal Fever III and will be the third member of the Fun With Number series for parts four and five as well. Embrace the odd.
