Hooked on Cook — Part 2

Oh, joy — a YouTube user has posted my favorite comedy sketch ever; "Superthunderstingcar," Peter Cook and Dudley Moore's parody of Gerry Anderson's puppet TV shows ("Thunderbirds," "Stingray," and "Supercar"), from their mid-1960s series "Not Only But Also."

Warning: If you're at all familiar with Anderson's shows, or with "Team America: World Police," the "South Park" creators' homage to them, this sketch is liable to make you spit out your coffee.
