Panel 1: Havoc breezily flashing the supposed documentation, here, is a direct lift from a bit that always cracked me up in the 1993 movie Matinee, in which John Goodman plays a William Castle-style schlock movie producer. As seen in the movie’s trailer at the 0:35 mark, he declares that his horror flick Mant! (Half Man! Half Ant!) “is based on scientific fact, on theories that have appeared in national magazines,” while quickly waving an unreadable handful of publications past the camera.
Re: the year 1993: To paraphrase one of my favorite Mystery Science Theater 3000 lines (from Riding with Death), “Sure hope it never stops being the 90s, or we’ll all be in trouble.”
