Synopsis
The giant Mr. Horrible is a one-man crime wave, leaving Senator Goldwater and President Johnson at wits end. To help out, Herbie enrolls in a superhero school to become a licensed costume hero. Herbie did not graduate, and when his father threatened to become a costume hero, Herbie created the Fat Fury. Not a licensed, graduate hero, but he'd do. He wore red flannel underwear, a blue cape, a blue mask and a plunger on his head. Bare feet! The Fat Fury rescues the Statue of Liberty and defeats Mr. Horrible.
