Zero Hour! – Airplane! Mashup!


You may know the 1980 comedic/cinematic masterpiece “Airplane!”, and in fact if you hang around in these parts of the cybernet it’s essentially one of the prerequisites for entry into the Obscure Reference Club (ORCi).

And many of you may know that Airplane! (the 1980 comedic/cinematic masterpiece) was partly inspired by and pokes fun at the disaster genera classics “Airport 1975“, Airport ’77 and The Concorde… Airport ’79.

And of course you can probably quote all the best lines in the movie (Heck, even people who have never seen the 1980 comedic/cinematic masterpiece know most the jokes).

But, did you know the actual plot and most of the characters for “Airplane!” (the 1980 comedic/cinematic masterpiece) were based on the 1957 Paramount film “Zero Hour!“?

Of course you did. Y’all are kinda weird and adorable like that.

Well, here then for you is a delightful little mashup of the two, along with a few obscure references for the most obscure references!!

“What a pisser.”

And if you ever get a chance to see “Zero Hour!” in its entirety, then go for it. We won’t stop you. It’s almost like the entire cast was played by Leslie Nielsen’s family.

P.S. It’s National Chocolate Ice Cream Day in the USofA. Might be the start of a great evening.

  • They're the same movie? I did not know that. I don't know what to say. I… I….

      It get funnier when you realize the aircraft sounds are from Zero Hour and not a jet.
