With Beaker off on a Star Trek cruise (where he encounters George Takei), Dr. Bunsen Honeydew realizes his life is very empty. Bunsen and guest star, Andie MacDowell, decide to take a walk on the wild side. Bob Keeshan and Ben Stein make cameo appearances with special performance by Liz Gandara, Lisa Thompson, and Jennifer Keyes as the Fly Girls.

Skit Highlights


  • The original US airing of the episode differs greatly from the international version:
    • Clifford's introduction to the show, "Four Weddings and a Frog," and the Penguin Chorus (and its introductory scene) were all omitted.
    • Many of the backstage scenes and sketches are arranged differently.
    • After Bunsen and Andie's tap routine, an establishing shot of the cruise ship appears before transitioning to George Takei and Beaker.
  • The emcee of the Star Trek convention that Beaker attends is played by Bill Barretta.


  • Liz Gandara, Jennifer Keyes, Lisa Thompson as the Fly Girls
