Movie connection in Trivia

In the trivia section is stated, that Walt Jr.'s watching Earth vs. the Flying Saucers on the TV. While IMDB says it would be Plan 9 from Outer Space. As I don't know any of these two films, someone with the knowledge could correct either the one or the other fact. -- CompleCCity (talk) 00:26, August 6, 2015 (UTC)

It's definitely Earth vs. The Flying Saucers. The pseudo-documentary style of the opening narration from the film (audible in the first seconds of that sequence in the ep, if you listen closely) is unmistakeably from Earth vs., and even ends with the title of the movie worked into the narration. (That's at about 5:06 from the end of the ep, at least in the edition that's on Netflix). The design of the saucers is also obviously from Earth vs. The film is very well known to classic sf film fans; it is considered a landmark-for-its-time in stop-motion animation by the legendary Ray Harryhausen. (The story isn't bad. The writing and acting, well... we've all seen better :) (But Plan 9 was considerably worse.) I've submitted a correction to IMDB.  RickBrant (talk) 22:44, March 31, 2017 (UTC)
