The UHF (best comedy film ever) location tour in Tulsa!
Here I am at the Plots R Us graveyard
Here’s the Spatula City home!
Here’s jlingo_23 at Plots R Us
Yes, you’re seeing correctly: Here we are at Raul’s Apt.!
Watch out for those flying poodles!
Here’s a human femur (maybe?) we found downtown next to the UHF City Hall. I picked it up and put it in my trunk, where it still resides until I can find someone that may be able to identify it.
I’m coming to you live from City Hall! Mayor Thompson! Mayor Thompson!
jlingo_23 gets in there as well…
I point to where Noodles Macintosh (the late Billy Barty) is tripped by R.J.’s thug.
Taking a peek in the dumpster where Gandhi busted some heads!
Kuni’s Karate School/George Newman and Bob’s studio apt.!
And here’s where George makes an impassioned plea to have his head bashed in with a crowbar…(fortunately he still owed Bob a whole $5.00)
I bet these people that live there don’t even have a clue what this is all about!
And here we come upon the site of Mecca…the station!
Beautiful, isn’t it?
Now where could the original building have gone?? I’d give anything to sort through its rubble, and maybe keep the doorknob.
We were the lucky recipients of Philo’s wave transmissions.
I have the power! (“claim it from the highest level!”)
I trod on Holy Ground (former site of the building).
Where’d it go? Oh yeah! R.J. DID say he was going to turn it into a parking lot!
Get on down to Spatula City!
Seven great locations!
Harden’s Hamburgers still remembers the time (see the memorabilia).
I’m psyched! I’m ready! The ORIGINAL building that Harden’s used to reside in. But more importantly, Big Edna’s Burgers in UHF!
And here’s what it looks like today (sad ain’t it?)!
And here we are recreating being thrown out by Big Edna. Now you know what Weird Al and David Bowe saw on their way to the grass.
At the last minute, the owner pops her head out to tell us all about the long day of filming back in 1988. She talked about what a nice guy Al is…
Boo! Hiss! The insidious Channel 8! Michael Richards as Stanley Spadowski braved its interiors more than any person should…(and kept it polished neatly at that).
Mr! Hey Mr.! Change…Ya got change?!!
The blues bar where the revolution was televised. We could just hear The Battle Hymn of the Republic wafting through in memorium…
Though we jumped the bar, we never could find those blueberry daquiris that George sampled.
This here’s Harvey Bilchick’s residence. We considered buzzing the door to see if Aunt Esther was inside, but we were running outta time.
And this my friends, is the location of Crazy Ernie’s Used Car Emporium (it’s a giant-supermarket of cars!). The baby seal would’ve been comfortable in the sudden downpour that swept in at the last location of our tour that day.
And that’s about it. We also saw: Terri’s apt., Terri’s dental office building where she worked, and some other assorted minor places, but that’ll tide us over for now. I must make that UHF location tour documentary soon, including interviews with local Tulsans that appeared onscreen as characters!
