UHF

Easter egg: Go to the side of the DVD that doesn't have Special Features on it. There should be a button for it anyhow. If you click it, Weird Al will come out and say, "Hey, the special features are on the other side of the DVD." Do it again. And one more time. The last time he screams at you.

Easter egg: Put the UHF DVD in your DVD player, when the Main Menu pops up, Go to scene selections, and then highlight chapters 13-16 and then go down, and the thing on the bottom between the knobs will be highlighted. Go there, and you will see a scene from the telethon with Fran.

Plot hole: Throughout the telethon we see volunteers taking pledges over the telephone. As with all telethons the vast majority of pledges will be paid by cheque. Instant bank transfers were unknown in the days the film was set and the telethon ends at midnight, at which time American banks are most certainly shut! How does George manage to have $75,000 in CASH for Big Louie on site that very night? Not every single pledge would (or could) go out to the remote site to pay in cash - not at that time of the night, anyway - and he couldn't raise more than the required sum as this was a share offer and an oversell would reduce the value of individual shareholder's equity.

Chosen answer: It's making fun of "Badges? We don't need no stinkin' badges!" which is an often referenced 'quote' from "The Treasure of the Sierra Madre" (Actually, the real line is "Badges? We ain't got no badges. We don't need no badges. I don't have to show you any stinking badges.", but that's the way people say it.)
