We all know Disney is famous for pushing the boundaries of children’s entertainment, but nothing encompassed the right-down-the-line attitude of Mickey’s
Evil Happy Empire quite like the racy and risqué “Cory in The House.”
Kyle Massey plays the son of chef Victor Baxter, who is captured and enslaved by the President of the United States (based on the putrid administration of our race-baiter-in-chief), and is forced to enslave and move Cory to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue with him as he is to be put in charge of the kitchen at the White House and ensuring the President and his guests are treated with the best hospitality. The show really doesn’t have time to please the PC crowd and refuses to tip toe the line of decency and humanity. I’d strongly recommend giving this show a shot to see what this country could end up being if Obama eventually declares ‘Martial Law’ and announces his third, fourth, fifth, and even sixth terms in the office of the President.
Without further ado, I present the best eight episodes of this classic kids show
- “The New Kid in Town” (Pilot)
With Tanya still in England and Raven in college, Victor Baxter is brutally beaten and enslaved and is forced to relocate and move to The White House in Washington, DC and serve as the personal chef of the President. Cory and Victor arrive in Washington D.C. and meet Meena Paroom, Newt Livingston, Sophie Martinez, President Martinez, and Samantha, the President’s assistant. Cory is trying to get to know people after being violently uprooted from his childhood home.
- “We Built this Kitty on Rock and Roll” (Season 1 Episode 4)
The Night’s Watch takes stock; Varys meets his better half; Arya is taken to the commander of the Brotherhood; Daenerys makes an exchange.
- “Beat the Press” (Season 1 Episode 10)
Tuco drags Jimmy at gunpoint into the house where the skateboarding twins are being held. Jimmy explains that the twins were part of his scam operation, but they picked the wrong car. Tuco leads Jimmy to the garage, where the twins are tied up. After Jimmy frees them, Lars reveals that this was all Jimmy’s idea, which infuriates Tuco. Later, Jimmy is tied up and gagged with duct tape, and on his knees in the desert. Tuco demands to know who Jimmy is and why he is coming after him. Out of options, Jimmy lies about being an FBI agent. Tuco’s subordinate Nacho doesn’t believe this, and Jimmy confirms that he is actually a lawyer. Jimmy is released. He talks Tuco out of killing the twins, suggesting Tuco break their legs instead. Jimmy drives the twins to an emergency room, with the twins calling him “the worst lawyer in the world”. Nacho visits Jimmy at his nail salon office, reveals a scheme to steal the money the Kettlemans embezzled, and offers Jimmy a 10% finder’s fee. Jimmy declines to participate, telling Nacho that he is a lawyer, not a criminal. Surprised, Nacho leaves his phone number with Jimmy, encouraging him to call when Jimmy decides he’s “in the game”.
- “Who Let the Dolls Out?” (Season 2 Episode 5)
Omar continues his bold strikes on the heavily guarded Barksdale stash houses. McNulty launches his own investigation into last year’s prison suicide of D’Angelo Barksdale. On the streets the bloodbath continues, prompting Burrell and Rawls to jack up the heat on their district commanders. The street violence also presents Daniels with a tough decision. A beleaguered Cutty tries to get his life back on track.
- “Peace, Love, and Misunderstanding” (Season 2 Episode 12)
Michael is tired of his father always having GOB compete with him, so Michael gets GOB his own banana stand franchise, only to find that GOB has set it up 20 feet from the old one. After the two compete, they decide to teach their father an elaborate lesson, and Buster refuses to use his handicap to scare kids. Meanwhile, Maeby uses Lucille’s surgery in a horror film.
- “Never the Dwayne Shall Meet” (Season 1 Finale)
When Homer installs a cell phone tower on his roof to pay for his destruction of the Bill Of Rights, the machinery is put in Lisa’s room, forcing her to move in with Bart. When the new living arrangement causes her stress, Homer agrees to try sensory deprivation therapy with her.
- “Macho Libre” (Season 2 Episode 11)
The Dunder Mifflin Infinity website is launching and Michael is excited about going to the big launch party in New York while Angela plans a satellite party for the Scranton branch. Meanwhile, Dwight competes against the website to see who can sell the most paper in one day.
- “Goodbye, Farewell, and Amen” (The ‘M*A*S*H’ series finale)
The episode’s plot chronicles the final days of the Korean War at the 4077th MASH, and features several storylines intended to show the war’s effects on the individual personnel of the unit, and to bring closure to the series. After the ceasefire goes into effect, the members of the 4077th throw a closing party before taking down the camp for the last time. After tear-filled goodbyes, the main characters go their separate ways, leading to the final scene of the series.
I think we all learned a lot from Disney through this beautiful masterpiece of a TV show, and ‘Generation Cory’ will be a lot more well rounded for indulging in it’s powerful message.
