Bath Time For Bonzo
Long ago, in a bathroom not very far away, the leaders of the Rebel Alliance--led by the heroic Luke Skywalker--planned their next attack against the evil Galactic Tub Toys in an adventure that would become known as . . . THE EMPIRE GETS WET
An All-Star Sci-Fi Action Fantasy with dialogue, music and sound effects improvised by a four-year-old boy during a bath
(Theme music: Dum-DUM, duh-duh-dee-DUM-dum . . . )
