Kill them both!

Turbo discs, anyone?


Stop him! Go, go, Demon Team!

No! Help, Turbo Man! Help! I'm coming, Billy!

Ta-ta, Turbo Man.

[Grunts] [Gasps]


[Computerized Voice] Five seconds to ignition.


[Sinister Laughter]

It's turbo time!


Got you. [Cheering]

You haven't seen the last of me, Turbo Man!

I'll have my revenge!

Here you go, Mr. President.

Mom, Dad, Booster.

Thank you, Turbo Man. You can always count on me.

Hey, Jamie, why don't you go upstairs and change, hon? It's almost time to leave.

But Dad's not home yet.

Now he's probably gonna miss me get my belt.

He misses everything. [Turns TV Off]

Well, he's not gonna miss this. He's probably just working really hard.

Hello, Mr. Jacobs.

Oh, yes, we've been busy, but, you know, I like that.

I'm gonna make it. I hear you.

Yes. So what can I do for you?

200 king-sized by next Friday?

No problem whatsoever, but only for you, Mr. Jacobs... because you're our number one customer.

[Beeps] Andrea, hi.

Well, if you think the fabric is too dark, then we'll just recover it.

And no extra charge Well, what do you expect? You're my number one customer. [Beeps]

Don't you forget. You're my number one customer.

You're my number one customer.

[Beeps] Liz. Hi, honey. How are you?

Howard, where are you?

I know— Jamie's karate class.

Don't worry. I'll meet you there. I promise.

And don't forget, you're my number one customer.

Liz! I— Look, I didn't mean that— [Groans]

Liz? [Dial Tone]

I gotta get out of here.

I'm gonna make it. I'm gonna make it.

[Sighs] He's not gonna make it.

What the—

[Horns Honking]



The kids look great, don't they? Yeah, they do.

Ted, I baked you some cookies— [Instructor Shouting]

You know, to thank you for fixing my screen door. [Students] Yes, sir!

Well, thanks, Judy. [Giggles]

[Instructor] One! One!

Ted, I was wondering if you’d mind... taking a look at my porch light.

It just doesn't seem to be working... and you being such a handyman— Sure. I've got just the tool for the job.

[Instructor, Students Continue Shouting]


I'm gonna make it.

[Siren Wailing]

Damn it.

[Students] Hai! Two!

Hai! Three!

Four! Hai!

License and registration, please.

Look, sir, I'm in kind of a hurry.

I'm really late for my son's karate class.

Oh, I do apologize if I've caused you some sort of delay.

How thoughtless of me.

Because the last thing that I want on my conscience right now... is for a private citizen to somehow be disappointed... in the performance of my duty.

Look, I was not criticizing you, Officer. It’s just that-

Step out of the vehicle.


That's my boy!

There. Are we finished now?

Recite the alphabet.

"A," "B," "C"— Backwards.

[Grunts] [Applause]

Way to go, Jamie! [Whistles]

I didn't make it.

[Car Alarm Chirps]

Hey, neighbor!

Ted? What the hell are you doing on my roof?

What's Ted doing on your roof? Ta-da! [Laughing]

I had some extra lights in the garage... and since you didn't put up any yourself, I thought, what the heck?

Why not spread a little Christmas cheer around the neighborhood?

Aw, gee, Ted, how thoughtful.

Hey, sorry you missed the karate class today.

But don't worry. I got it all on video for you.

What would I do without you?

Did you tell Ted that he could put lights up on our house?

Howard, do you have any idea what time it is?

I know. You should have seen the traffic, and on top of that, I got a speeding ticket.

Don't explain it to me. It wasn't my karate class you missed.

[Man On TV] We'll be back right after these messages Hi, buddy. [Announcer] It's turbo time!

Now it's your chance to save the universe with Turbo Man!

Battle evil with America's favorite superhero... and his sidekick Booster.

Jamie, about that karate class tonight...

I was trying to—Jamie.

Jamie, stop!

Listen. It was not my fault.

Jamie, don't walk away from your father.


Can I come in?

So, champ... are those hands registered weapons yet? [Chuckles]

Oh, is this it?

Wow! This is really cool.

How do you do this?

Like this?

No. I know. Like this.

What do you think, Jamie? How about this?

[Grunting, Moans]

Ya! [Growls]



I've done something really stupid today, huh?

I don't care. Oh, come on, Jamie.

I hope this is not true, because I really wanted to be there.

Look, believe me, I— But you always say that, and you never come anyways.

Purple was important to me, Dad.

That's one away from green and three away from black.

But I saw you get yellow. But you missed blue.

You're right. I really blew it.

I'm really, really sorry.

You think you can let me make it up to you?

Like how?

Well, like letting me do something special...just for you.

Like, if there’s something really important... you've been wanting for Christmas, hmm?

Ah, don't worry. I got it covered. I wrote Santa.

Ah. But Santa gets very busy this time of the year.

Sometimes he even has to ask moms and dads to help out a little bit.

Nah. It's not that important.

Tell me. What do you want?

I want the Turbo Man action figure with the arms and legs that move... and the boomerang shooter and the rock-and-roar jet pack... and the realistic voice activator that says five different phrases... including, "It's turbo time!"

Accessories sold separately. Batteries not included.

Well, I'm glad you had to stop and think about it.

Johnny's gonna get one, and so is everybody else I know.

Whoever doesn't is gonna be a real loser.

Well, that definitely won't be you.

Thanks, Dad. I love you.

I love you too, Jamie. I love you!


[Howard] Liz, you should have seen us in there I mean, we were really bonding We were drawing.

We were laughing, having a great time, talking about that Turbo guy.

Turbo Man. Which reminds me— you got the doll, right?

The doll?

Yeah. That Turbo Man doll.

I asked you to pick one up two weeks ago.


That doll. Of course.

Howard, you didn't. Please tell me that you did not forget that doll.

No, no. I-I— I got it.

I— I got the Turbo Man doll, the one that has those things that shoot out in front... with that rock 'em sock 'em jet pack... and with that realistic voice box that says, "It's turbo time."

I got it. Oh, good.

There you are. I mean, you thought for a minute... that I would not do something that you tell me?

I got it right away. [Sighs]

Good. Because at this point... they'd probably be impossible to find.

[Man On Radio] KQRS, Minneapolis We'll do the rocking while you fill the stocking.

♪♪ [Rock And Roll]

Wait. Whoa. Where you going?

I just have to run to the office quickly. That's it.

Howard, it's Christmas eve.

You can't be going to the office.

I have to pick up the D-O-L-L.

I left it there by mistake Oh. Okay.

All right. Bye.

Dad, you can't go to work today. What about the parade?

The parade? The Holiday Wintertainment Parade. We go every year.

Oh. Well, you didn't go last year or the year before.

But Mom and I always go. Anyway, this year Turbo Man's gonna be there Yeah. Turbo Man. Turbo Man. Yes! It's turbo time.

Dad, you can't miss it. It's gonna be really cool.

I won't miss it.

I'll be there. I promise.

Whoa! [Car Alarm Chirps]



Sorry about that, Howie. What's that— a reindeer?

A little Christmas surprise for Johnny.

You just think of everything, don't you, Ted?

Howard, I'm of the mind-set you can never do too much... to make a child's Christmas magical. [Snorts]

So what happens to Blitzen after Christmas?

I've been watching a family of deer down by Lake Minnetonka.

I thought I'd take him down there and set him free If nature's kind, they'll take him in like he's one of their own.

How touching.

Hey, buddy. How are you? [Roars]

Hey! Whoa! That's odd.

Reindeer are usually such gentle animals.

There must be something about you he doesn't like— aftershave or something.

Yeah. All right. Got to go.

Where you off to so early?

Picking up a Christmas present for Jamie.

Whoa! Nothing like waiting till the last minute, Howitzer.

So, what'd you get him? One of those Turbo Mans.

Oh. That's great.

I got a Turbo Man for Johnny months ago.

It's nestled safely under our tree.


Howard, by the way, they say it may get icy later.

You might want to wrap some chains around those tires.

Maybe I should wrap some chains around you.

Come on. It's freezing out here. There's a hundred people— Because of two minutes? Because of two minutes you're not—

[Crowd Shouting]

Hey. Give the man a break. He's a dad trying to get a toy.

Go ahead. Have cuts, man. Last-minute shopping, huh?

Yeah. Enough to drive a man insane, ain't it?

Myron Larabee.

Howard Langston. [Chuckles]

See, I have to shop late because it's the busiest time of year for me.

All these important Christmas letters that people send to folks... they don't even talk to but once a year... not to mention relatives sending presents they're going to have to send back anyway.

How many toiletry kits does a man need?

And how about those little, stupid letters from kids to Santa at the North Pole?

[Child's Voice] "Dear Santa, could you send me a bike and a Slinky?"

No! Your father's been laid off!

And as if I didn't have enough pressure in my life.. my son sends me out for some goofy-butt toy... some fruity robot named Turtle Man.

That's Turbo Man. My son wants one too.

You know it's all a ploy, don't you?

A ploy? Man, where have you been?

Don't you watch TV? We are being set up by rich and powerful toy cartels.

Oh, come on.

You got these big fat cats sit there using working class just like me and you.

They spend billions of dollars on TV advertisement... and then they sit there and use subliminal messages to suck your children's minds out!

I know what I'm talking about because I went to junior college for a semester.. and I studied psychology, so I'm right in there.

I know what's going on. Then they sit there and make a kid feel like garbage... because you, the father, who's working 24-7... delivering mail so you can make an alimony payment... to a woman that slept with everybody at the post office but me... and then when you get the toy, it breaks, and you can't fix it because it's cheap plastic!

Know what I'd like to do? I'd like to walk up in that office... grab one of those guys and just choke him, choke him until an eye pops out!

[Man] What's the matter with you?

You shouldn't wear fur.

[Groans] [Crowd Shouting]

Back off. I'm first.

Turbo Man, you're mine!

Move it, move it, move it! Whoa!

Get out my way! Get out my way!

Booster? Who wants Booster?

The Turbo Man dolls, they're all gone!

There's got to be another one here somewhere. There are none here!

Excuse me. I'm trying to find a Turbo Man doll. Yes?

Me too. Do you have any more in the back?


What? What's he laughing about?

What did I say? These guys are looking for Turbo Man.

A Turbo Man doll, yes.

They're looking for Turbo Man.

Hey, everybody. These two are looking for a Turbo Man

[All Laughing] Shut up, man.

Now what's so funny?

Where have you guys been?

Turbo Man's only the hottest selling Christmas toy ever. Duh!

But you know what? We got plenty of Turbo Man's faithful saber-tooth tiger Booster.

[All Laughing]


Where's your Christmas spirit?

That's better.

Now, there must be a Turbo Man around here somewhere.

Uh, duh— The last one just left.

Um, some lady had it on layaway. A lady? What lady?

Uh, uh, sh-short, uh, with a fur coat. Fur coat.

Sorry, buddy. [Grunts]


Give me this. Hey!

This is war.

[Myron Laughing] Whoo!

[Groans] Yeah!


Oh, poor baby. [Chuckles] Turbo Man.


Excuse me, lady. What! What do you want?

I'm not a robber. I followed you all the way from the store.

Oh, really? Yes, really.

There's something I wanted to ask you. Would you like my phone number?

Oh, no. I mean, no. It's, uh, I would like your bag.

My bag? Yes. I'll offer you twice what you paid for it.

Twice? Okay, three times.

Three times. Oh, I get it.

Oh, sure. What the heck. For that kind of profit, knock yourself out.

Oh, thank you. And just in case.

Here's my phone number.



I don't want Booster.

Hey, hold it. Wait!

Wait, lady! I need that Turbo Man!

Hi, Liz. Oh, hi, Ted.

Look at you.

It's Christmas eve, and you're slaving over a hot stove.

Is this the mom of the year or what? It's no big deal.

And modest too.


Liz, looks like you could use a little you time.

Why don't you go upstairs, take a shower?

I'll keep an eye on the boys, finish up with the cookies.

Oh, no— Da-da-da. Go on.

You deserve it. Uh— Oh. Well, o-okay, but listen for the oven timer-

I know. Sugar cookies.

Bake 12-15 minutes till golden brown. Yeah.

Ted's got everything under control.

[Phone Ringing]

[Ted] Merry Christmas. Langston residence.

Hi, I— Ted?

Howard! Hey, buddy. How's it going out there?

Everything okay? Yeah, fine. Ted, I need to speak to Liz.

Could you get— [Ted Moans]

Howard, excuse me, but your wife's cookies are out of this world.

What— Who told you you could eat my cookies?

I'm just helping Liz out a little in the kitchen. She's baking up a storm here.

Ted, I need to speak to my wife... so could you get her on the phone, please?

I think she's in the shower. Do you want me to go check?


I mean, no, that's fine.

On your way out, just tell her I will be a few minutes late... but she shouldn't worry.

Oh, she won't worry. I mean, I'm here, and— Mmm! Oh, these cookies! I got to get the recipe from Liz.

Put that cookie down! Now!

Howard, is there something bothering you?

Because this time of year, there's a very high incidence of stress-related breakdown.

[Bell Rings] Oops! There's the next batch. Gotta go, Howard.

I'll give Liz your message though. Bye-bye. Yeah, but—

[Dial Tone]

Hey, hey, hey, look who it is! [Moans]

Still on the hunt, huh? Yeah.

Hey, sorry about whacking you at the toy store.

I got caught up in the friendly spirit of competition.

That's all right. Don't worry.

But I was thinkin', you'd have done the same thing.

That's when I realized—you and I, we're the same kind of person.

I sort of doubt that.

I was thinking about that brouhaha at the toy store— I was thinking we could join up as a team... like Starsky and Hutch, like Jonny Quest and Hadji, man... like Bonnie and Clyde like Ike and Tina— Not Ike and Tina, because she left, but we could do it!

Search and destroy. Divide and conquer. Me and you. What do you say?

Thanks, Myron, but, no, thank you.

Come on, man. Let's do it. Let's be a team!

Gee, Myron, I think you're a good guy and all... but this I would like to do by myself.

You understand, right?

Oh, yeah, I understand you, man.

I understand plenty. I know what's going on here.

Mr. Wear Your Little Fancy Cashmere Coat And Your Nice Little Suede Shoes.

I was good enough to talk to in line, but I'm not good enough to be on your team!

These balls will then be drawn in a standard lottery fashion to see who gets a doll.

If you’re not one of the lucky few.. we have plenty of Turbo Man's faithful pet tiger Booster in stock.

We don't want it! We don't want it!

But, you know, little boy with your attitude...

I don't think I want to give you access to this.

Tony, show him.

That was taken this morning.

How do I know this is not some kind of a scam?

Forget it, Tony. This guy doesn't want our help.

Whoa, whoa, whoa. Wait a minute, guys. Merry Christmas.

We're all businessmen. I'm sure we can work out some sort of an agreement.

You got the cash, we got the doll. How much?

Ho, ho, ho, ho!

Merry Christmas Ho, ho, ho!

A merry Christmas to you, Officer. What are you, crazy?

Santa never delivers a gift out in broad daylight.

Excuse me. I may be wrong, but you are not the real Santa Claus.


And you're not the kind of guy who's got enough foresight... to get his kid a Turbo Man before Christmas eve, are you?

Your dad is so cool. I wish my dad did stuff like this.

Oh, he never used to, not till he and my mom split up.

Really? Hey! Maybe your parents should get a divorce.

Did wonders for my dad


Hot chocolate?

[Phone Ringing]

Hello? -Jamie, how are you doing, old buddy?

Hi, Dad! I knew you'd call!

Hey, listen, let me talk to your mother.

You can't. Why not?

She's next door petting Ted.

She's what? Listen, Dad, are you on your way?

The parade's gonna start soon.

Jamie, get your mother, please.

Well, are you? Am I what?

Coming home soon. Yes, immediately! Now please get your mother!

'Cause, Dad, before you left... you promised that you were gonna be at the parade.

You haven't been here all day, so you can't miss it.

Jamie, please.

'Cause, Dad, when someone makes a promise, they definitely should keep it.

You know, it's like what Turbo Man says:

[Deep Voice] "Always keep your promises if you want to keep your friends."

Enough! Enough of this Turbo Man, okay?

I had it up to here with this Turbo Man!

If there’s anyone I don't want to have advice from right now, it's Turbo Man!

Now get your mother!

I'm sorry, Jamie. Look, I didn't mean— What would you know about keeping your promises? You never keep your promises!

You never do anything you say you're gonna do!


Damn you, Howard.

[Dial Tone]

Here you go, my man. This will warm you up.

Thanks. [Myron] Cheers You?

Peace! 'Tis the season to be jolly.


Any luck in finding that doll?

No. Me neither.

[Chuckles] Maybe this will help.

Oh, yeah.

So I couldn't find the kid a doll.

Does that make me a bad father? No. Nah.

But yelling at him for no good reason?

Now, that makes me a bad father.

Look, we get one chance a year to prove we're not screwups.

And what do we do? We screw it up.

I remember a few years ago..

I wanted to do something really special for Jamie.

So, I built him his own clubhouse.

It came out great.

Oh, it— Well, I mean, the door was a little crooked, right?

And the roof didn't sit quite straight... but you should have seen his face light up.

Oh, when he saw that, he was so excited.

We played in that clubhouse the entire day.

He even made us have Christmas dinner in it. No!

Oh, yeah.

I was the hero then.

Look at me now.

You're right. That kid's gonna need some serious therapy, man.

Oh, don't say that. Mm-hmm.

I know what I'm talking about.

See, I never forgave my father.

I remember one Christmas, I wanted this one special toy- a Johnny Seven O.M.A. gun.

You remember those, don't you? No.

I still remember the commercial like it was yesterday.

Two kids playing out in the backyard.

"Johnny to Peter. Johnny to Peter. Enemy sighted."

"Roger there! Open fire!"

And then Johnny would whip out his Johnny Seven O.M.A. one-man-army gun.

Seven guns in one— count 'em!

One— it's a grenade launcher. [Imitates Rocket Grenade Firing, Exploding]

Two— it's an anti-armor gun. [Explosive Shot]

Three— it's an antitank gun. I see ya, buddy. [Explosive Shot]

Four— it's a rifle. [Rapid Gunfire]

Five— it was a tommy gun. [Machine Gun Fire]

Six- it's an anti-aircraft gun.

Just in case somebody survived, seven was a cap-firing pistol.



Thing looked like a blast.

But— Of course, for my old man...

Christmas was just another opportunity to let me down.

I never did get that Johnny Seven O.M.A Sorry to hear that Hey, don't mean nothin'.

You ever heard of a guy named Scott Sherman?

Yeah. C.E.O. of Sherman Industries.

He was my old neighbor... and his dad got him a Johnny Seven O.M.A. gun.

You know what happened?

He became a billionaire.

And me? Well— [Scoffs]

I'm just a loser with no future.

Here's to you, Dad.


I can't let this happen It’s just a doll.

It’s just a stupid little plastic doll!

Uh-uh-uh. That's "action figure."

There's got to be one around here somewhere!

[Radio Deejay] You say you've been looking everywhere for a Turbo Man doll?


You say you'd do just about anything to get your hands on one?

Yes, yes. Well, KQRS has good news for you.

If you’re the first caller to correctly identify all eight of Santa's reindeer... you will be the winner of the hottest toy since Johnny Seven O.M.A.

No, it's- Wait, wait, wait! You're too late!

I've already got the right answer! I won! Yeah!

I don't need the right answer to win! I got this!

And what's that? This, Mr. Track Star, is a homemade explosive device!

A bomb? [Gasps] Good Lordy!

Yes, in layman's terms- a bomb! So back up!

You built a bomb? I didn't have to build a bomb. Don't you read the news?

Hundreds of these things come through the mail every day.

I just kept one in case I ever needed it.

So give me the doll, or I'm gonna blow up everybody in this place!

Are you out of your mind? Put this thing away! This is not worth it!

Maybe not to you, but to me it is. So back up!

Myron! Come on, old buddy.

Give me the package, all right? Come on.

Did you call me buddy? Yeah.

I am not your buddy! I tried to be your teammate! I wanted to be your friend!

But no! You had other plans for Myron Larabee! No, I had no plans.

You were no different than the rest of those civilians... those common letter writers who make fun of my kneesocks and my safari hat in the summer!

[Muffled Chortle]

Are you laughing at me?

Huh? Oh, no! Lord, no. No, not at all.

Mr. Ponytail Man, I know you! I know your kind!

You're the kind that puts the trash can in front of the mailbox... so I have to get out of my Jeep, don't you?

No, not true! I recycle! Shut up!

That's right! Shut up! Why do you think the window's there?

So I can just put the mail in there! But you act like everything's okay!

It's not what you think it is. Oh, it isn't? Really?

Then do tell me what it is because as far as I know... you got Jamie his own Turbo Man weeks ago.

What it looks like is that you've broken into our neighbor's house... and you're stealing presents from under the tree.

Liz, if you just give me a second, I could explain it to you.

I know parts of this are going to sound completely ridiculous... but let me tell you the truth Howard, I've been listening to your version of the truth for far too long now... and honestly, I don't want to anymore.

All I want is to salvage what's left of Christmas eve... and go to the parade with my son.

Liz, please.

Ted, would you drive us? Of course.

You can't bench-press your way out of this one.
