Dave takes Kimberly to see The Lion King, then they go out to eat. I remember John McAdam going off on this in his old tape listings: that Dave was portrayed as an idiot for being out of his league at a restaurant like this and not knowing what Chateaubriand was, when the average WCW fan may react similarly. We do get Disco Inferno in a bunny outfit reading a poem, for whatever that's worth.

You didn't comment on the awful sound effects that accompanied DDP's assault on Dave. Even as a ten-year-old, I recognized how campy and ridiculous this segment was, and it has remained a favorite ever since.

Also, The Lion King had been on VHS for months, having hit theaters a year earlier.

I think that's a different segment later.

I was only seeing WCW through Wordwide during this time and they ran the hell out of this angle (and over all storyline) Seems like they thought Dave could have been an 80s type upper midcard goofy face and I remember the sound effects segment!

This was ridiculous. Kimberly was just so good looking that it's hard to hate on her. The sound effects, Disco in the bunny outfit, DDP's fanny pack. Just crazy stuff.

That was Disco in the bunny outfit ? Well, that's a damn good trivia question ! Yeah, stupid segment, and the sound effect really makes it even stupider. Really vintage bad WCW production, which is too bad as DDP's vignette earlier on were pretty good and funny. Kim is adorable though.

The sound effects reminded me of the Beauty Pair movie where they dubbed whole matches with Crash! Bang! Pow!

Well, aside from Kimberly being cute as a button, this was horrific. It's established that Dave is an idiot because he doesn't know what chateaubriand and some kind of exotic soup that even I--a food industry professional--can't pronounce. DDP lures Evad back out to the car with a threat about "rabbit stew," then assaults him with the help of some horrific sound effects that William Dozier wouldn't have allowed in a third-season Batman episode. A legendarily awful segment that I've never actually seen before.

A little later on WCW, we'll have a visit to the Dungeon of Doom. Dont like that? Well, over on the other national promotion, Jerry Lawler is in the dentist's office, using every infuriating dentistry pun known to man, to hype a psycho orthodontist that seems to like to torture children. 1995 was one bizarre, often idiotic, year.
