Gilbert and Frank celebrate their 200th (!) episode by welcoming frequent guests (and friends) Drew Friedman, Rupert Holmes and Richard Kind for a loose, laugh-filled (and frequently lewd) discussion of essential topics, including: the cinema of Fred Gwynne, the unpredictability of Jerry Lewis, the long-lost child of Uncle Miltie, and the risks and rewards of meeting one’s heroes. Also, Drew puts Groucho to bed, Rupert lunches with Frank Capra, Richard lives up to his name and the panel recalls the movie that changed their lives. PLUS: The Olivia de Havilland of monster movies! In praise of Dan Castellaneta! Gilbert disses (the original) “Casino Royale”! Merv Griffin co-stars with a gorilla! And the boys rank the best Richard Kind impressions!
This episode is brought to you by Squarespace (www.squarespace.com code: GILBERT) and Harold Ramis Film School.

Gilbert and Frank welcome back one of their favorite guests, cartoonist and illustrator extraordinaire Drew Friedman, who discusses his newest book, “Drew Friedman’s Chosen People,” and joins the boys for a rollicking hour of rumors, innuendo, half-truths and outright lies. Also, Drew puts Groucho to bed, Frank meets a real, live Stooge, Fred McMurray inspires Captain Marvel and Sammy Petrillo takes credit for “The Munsters.” PLUS: The Uncle Miltie puppet! The MAD genius of Don Martin! The return of Perfecto Telles! Jerry Lewis “kills” Peter Lorre! And Mr. Warmth plays Felix Ungar!
