In 1998 the worlds oil supply is exhausted. The U.S. Treasury is empty and in deep debt to a billionaire businessman (Chief Dan George) wholl foreclose on the nation in 30 days. The solution: a telethon to save Uncle Sam from bankruptcy. And with this way-out-there premise as a launching pad, Americathon explodes into comic outer space. Written by Firesign Theatre veterans Phil Proctor and Peter Bergman, this wickedly funny and 30 years later, outrageously timely escapade stars Harvey Korman as an ego-tripping emcee, Fred Willard as a scheming White House aide and John Ritter as a mellow fellow of a President. Has the country got a prayer when the people running the show havent got a clue? Tune in to this all-stops-out extravaganza of hilarity andstrange but true foreboding. **Please be aware that this is a manufactured on demand disc that was created using a DVD-R disc.
