“The Good, the Boo and the Ugly”

Tons of references to The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966), starting with the title:

  • The music playing throughout the segment is based on TGTBATU’s famous main theme, composed by Ennio Morricone
  • The film is the most famous example of the “Spaghetti Western” genre, so-called because they were traditional Westerns filmed in Italy
  • The two men in the saloon are caricatures of Lee Van Cleef and Eli Wallach, who played Angel Eyes (the Bad) and Tuco (the Ugly), respectively
  • Chicken Boo as “The Man with No Personality” parodies Clint Eastwood’s poncho-wearing Man with No Name, also known as Blondie (the Good)
