PERFORMER Jerry Nelson
DEBUT 1992

An unnamed Big Time Producer writes a letter to Eliot Shag in the Dog City episode "Ya Gotta Have Hart," proposing they make Ace Hart: The Movie.

An excitable caricature of a French filmmaker, the self-proclaimed genius producer bellows through a megaphone, suggesting that Ace Hart struggle with his own mortality. The film gradually shifts from a mixture of Ingmar Bergman and the French avant-garde to Jerry Lewis-style slapstick. Unable to abide the heavyhanded producer's meddling and insistance that Ace will do whatever the "genius" commands, Eliot rebels and has the foreign auteur tossed out by Bowser.
