Good Idea, Bad Idea

Post by Billy » Fri Nov 11, 2005 12:11 am

Anyone remember Animaniacs? It had this segment which, as the title suggests, featured a good idea and a bad idea. Let's see if we can do some Knightmare ones.

Good Idea: Growing a beard to look like Treguard.
Bad Idea: Growing a head to look like Festus.

And the team who also ignored Treguard in series 5, when they were told to take an arrow ("no Pickle, not a weapon, more like a token,") then they don't take it, take the poison, and have a weird idea about trying to hide a knife.

Good idea for Simons team: "Walk forward"

Bad idea for the same team: "Side step to the left."

Simons team was in series 4.

Good idea: "Spellcasting, S-H-O-V-E-L."

Good idea: collecting the green energy plants in series 2.
Bad idea: attempting to chop them finely and sprinkle the pieces on mashed potato.

Good idea: talking to Mug, to convince him that he's not ugly.

Good idea: flying on the back of Smirkenorff to reach Level 2.
Bad idea: flying on a magic carpet to see the King Of The Potato People, and beg for your freedom... and you're telling me you're completely sane? I think that calls for two hours of W.O.O.

I think the "Good Idea" and ellipsis are quite sufficient. ;)
