This was an episode of a cartoon show that I saw sometime in the 1990's, probably not later than 2002. Two kids, who I think were friends and not siblings, were in a magical place where they got to create their own worlds. There was a river dividing their pieces of land. Their parents are watching this from some kind of room, and as the parents argue and won't get along, the children also argue and begin to create more scary and negative things in their worlds. I remember that the girl started with a pet kitten and the boy had a pet puppy, but after they started fighting over who was going to come over to whose side of the river, they got impatient and angry. The boy made his puppy into a wolf and the girl made her kitten into a big cougar/wild cat. Does anyone remember what show this was?

Answer: That was an episode of Captain Planet.

My guess would be that the film was released in the 1990s or earlier this decade. The setting of the film was a health spa in nineteenth or early twentieth century America. The health spa was owned and operated by a physician. The basic thesis of the physician was that the entirety of human disease can be attributed to genito-excretory (especially bowel) dysfunction. Among the other principals are the following. A young couple is featured. The couple takes a train to the health spa in order to secure treatment for the husband. The physician examines the throat of the husband and says that his bowels are "sick, sick" (really no surprise there). The physician recommends that the husband enter the spa for treatment. A good bit of the film deals with the misadventures of the husband as he takes the spa's treatments for his malady. The physician has a grown ne'er-do-well son who is given to extorting money from his physician father and which son also enjoys spying on bare naked ladies (one of which is the wife of the young couple, mentioned above) as they bathe in the spa. In the final scene of the film, the physician rides a bicycle or motor bike off of the end of a pier, tumbles headlong into a body of water and (presumably) drowns. I never did get any of the stage names of the actors or actresses. The actor who played the physician was a mature gent (an Anthony Hopkins type). That's all that I can remember. I just saw bits and pieces of the film on free television several years ago. I would dearly love to purchase a copy of this film for playback on dvd but I don't know the title of the film. Can anybody help me with the title of the film?

The movie i would like info on was made between 1985 & 1987 at a guess. I was young when i watched it and my memory of this movie is quite vague. The movie was set during world war 2 and featured aliens or creatures of some kind? If my memory serves me right, these creatures were helping the soldiers? Could anyone shed some light on this movie please?

Answer: Sounds like Zone Troopers from 1986.

I'm trying to remember the name of a comedy/parody movie. All I can remember is that it was about a martial artist with a talking tongue, and there was also a fighting cow.
