A Case Of Spring Fever (1940)

This educational short from 1940 is famous for it’s appearance on the August 1, 1999 broadcast of Mystery Science Theater 3000, which also happened to feature the B-Movie ‘Squirm’. However while Mike and the gang on the Satellite of Love make it very humorous as always with their wisecracking…I believe it defeats the true purpose of the short. Horror. It’s a tale of mind-numbing madness and fear thanks to its animated mascot, Coily the Spring Sprite.

You really do not want to upset Coily, trust me.

Now try to go to sleep tonight and not see Coily appearing beside you…taunting you…for all time.
