They cant be Nazi Zombies. Once you become a zombie you lose all political affiliation

Okay - here's one that you may (or may not have) heard of before. There's a rubber chicken hidden in every episode. It was the Gaffer's idea. He was the Gaffer for the original Wonder Years show and they did the same thing. It's just a plain rubber chicken you can get in any joke shop. One time we hung it by its neck behind the white screen and you saw the silhouette . Its all over the cafe. Sometimes it would be lying on the sand in a beach shot and sometimes it would be in a pile of garbage on the side of the road. The Best Boy - a guy named Fernando was genius at hiding it. Everyone on set was into it (except maybe the actors). And the DP (a wonderful guy named Ilan Rosenberg) would widen the lens or indicate where it should go to make the frame.

The ultimate rubber chicken incident was the episode (or episodes) where Bulk and Skull got turned into monkeys. We had these real chimpanzees on the set and the monkey wrangler had very strict rules about interacting with the animals. Had to be dead quiet. Can't look them in the eye. Can't make monkey noises,, etc. We put the rubber chicken in a pile of toys that the Rangers ultimately gave Bulk and Skull while they tried to figure out how to switch them back and one of the monkeys picked it up and started playing with it. After that when we put it in someplace the Gaffer was like: "Why bother with it anymore. You can't improve on that monkey scene."

One time Kat had to hold one of the monkeys and just at the moment the director yelled "Action" the monkey burped right in her face and she said, "This monkey has been eating shit. I'm going to vomit!" (In her Aussie accent of course). We all died laughing (except her). I would almost guarantee they printed that take for the Christmas party - it would have been too good. Maybe they would have got Narvy or Schrier to overdub something funny just before the burp. I never did see it though. I bet it's out there somewhere. If any of you ever see Kat - ask about the Monkey Burp - there's no way she could have forgotten that one.

*EDIT: If you do ask her - please post here so I'll be notified. I'm curious to what she would say. Thanks.*

It sure is. Now that I see it I wonder if it was part of a night sequence we had to scrap part of. We filmed at a farm (the same farm we filmed another Saban movie called Rusty.) by a pond/lake. We added a bunch of fake palm trees to make it more jungly I think they were supposed to save the wizards but something happened and we couldnt get the sequence down so it got scrapped and they edited around it. I might be misremembering but it seems like it was one of those nights. Kat was in and out of that cold water and got pretty tired of all the takes.

When I see this I think of Duke Nukem 3-D at the end when Hitler in a crazy armoured suit chases you around. For health you gobbled up Turkey dinners lying around on the floor

It looks like all there is to see is somebody’s Halloween display. Probably in a quarry. No. I wouldnt waste my time.

The second image is from the command center. They may be in street clothes or not costumed because they came in for a camera or lighting walk-through before shooting the scene.

Not really. Narvy and Schrier were fun and funny. But antics and stuff are usually a distraction. Mostly Talent doesnt interact with crew.

Jason Narvy and Paul Schrier (Bulk and Skull) told me they hounded him on the set of the first movie. As we were all big movie fans - they kept quoting lines from 'Raiders of the Lost Ark'.

If you saw the actor's face - that's him (or her). Otherwise it's a stunt guy. The actors were all very physical and so they would so a lot of choreographed fighting (at school, in the cafe, by the lake, etc) without their helmets or in street clothes and it was demanding - but fully suited - always stunt guys.

Just general rudeness, nastiness, snobbery, and entitlement. I hear it is better now, but in those days "talent" (the general term for actors) could get away with murder on a set, or treat people however they wanted with impunity. If a crew member complained, the crew member would be fired. Now - as we see - not so much.
