Quotable Epcot: Cranium Command

I’ve said it before on the blog but I am going to say it again: there is a Cranium Command sized hole in my heart.

The mixed medium show that includes live action film and animatronics found its home in the Wonders of Life Pavilion, and told the quirky story of a “brain pilot” named Buzzy who gets stuck commandeering the day-to-day life of a 12-year old boy. Chaos ensues under the direction of many dramatic brain functions.

It’s unfortunate that Cranium Command closed five years ago… especially since it was one of those attractions that could be enjoyed by everyone in the family (even my dad who tends to fall asleep during certain shows i.e. Finding Nemo), gave shelter from the elements for over 20 minutes, and was true edutainment. It’s pretty much the epitome of what Epcot stands for, and what it fails to strengthen lately. It’s not the same, but if you pour over the YouTube videos of the show… it is still funny and sweet and smart. Sure, the voice actors are a little outdated but that could have easily been amended.

Oh well, a girl can dream, can’t she?

While watching, I couldn’t help but realize how many awesome quips are thrown all over the place. Like t-shirt worthy quotes and I thought, hey, why not share them with ya’ll?

So here we go:

  1. I loved this show so much! It was great from beginning to end, but I think my favorite moment was the finale, when Buzzy finally earned everyone’s respect — even the General’s!

    You’ve listed lots of my favorite quotes, but I also loved this classic from General Knowledge to a recruit:

    “IF YOUR BRAINS WERE DYNAMITE, YOU COULDN’T BLOW YOUR NOSE!”

    and this exchange:

    “CAN YOU WALK AND CHEW GUM AT THE SAME TIME?”
    “NEVER – TRIED – SIR!”

    This show was absolutely perfect. They really should have updated it with current celebrities and found another location for it.
