The rude, clumsy puppet Mr. Bungle shows kids how to behave in the school cafeteria - the assumption being that kids actually want to behave during lunch. This film has a cult following since it appeared on a Pee Wee Herman HBO special. To license this film and get a higher quality version for broadcast/film purposes, contact A/V Geeks LLC .
