My cartoon art teacher taped it and we watched it in class today (sadly no tv at boarding school) and it's so funny. Anyone else see it.

I like the way he wouldn't leave the comic shop and kept restacking the comics in their bins, and his trying to become the Hulk. " but I did it once before" Great episode.

Isn't Mr. Lee working for DC Comics now? That made his "Marvel Support" even more funny to me! Marvel rocks!

I saw it, I wished I hadn't seen it though. I didn't enjoy it much at all, lots of potential fell flat there, and Stan Lee's lines were dreck.

Stan Lee's lines are always dreck. Who goes around saying "Excelsior" anyway?

I thought it was prett damn funny. I love the way he can poke fun at himself. Although, nothing will ever top his performance in Mallrats.

I liked when he stuffed the Thing toy into the Batmobile. And then he put an X-Men comic over a Batman comic.

Excelsior, according to a Stan Lee's Soapbox column, are those packing peanuts used to ship boxes, I think. Who doesn't use those nowadays? :p Stan Lee is the same as Steve Allen; people just don't realize the impact he's had on a particular area. I mean, Steve invented the Pog! :D

Excelsior is not packing peanuts, it's straw-like wood shavings that's been used for packing needs and stuffing furniture for over 100 years. It was a trademarked name, meant to refer to be lofty, to "excel", and it was used to express such feelings of lofty excitement.

I stand corrected. Apparently, I was NOWHERE NEAR the true definition of "excelsior." I curtsey to your superior knowledge in my sarcastic way, JT. ;) :D
I guess I'd never heard Stan Lee speak before, but it's just the way I thought he would talk.
