all right, I finally am going to break down and ask. Pod People has always been one of my favorite MST3K's......and the whole routine with the names, always ending in Chief...McCloud gets me rolling, but I have no freaking clue what the reference is. Anyone out there can satisfy my curiosity?

Oh, that.... the old NBC mystery movie. McCloud was the "Coogan's bluff" character, and the chief was the NYPD boss he answered to.
....The way they said the names was based on how the characters sounded, when speaking to each other. With just a lil bit of exageration.

Thank you very much.....TV references are harder for me to pick up as my hippie parents were fine with my movie obsession but never let me watch television. Your help has eased a troubled soul.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
