Oh wow, you're right. Meet the Feebles came out in '89. I never new this existed. But I can't find any evidence of a lawsuit about it.
There has been some concerted effort to erase it from history.
Just watched the Feebles trailer. No lawsuit necessary. That it exists is punishment enough.
People forget that before he was Peter "Lord of the Rings" Jackson he was Peter "Bad Taste" Jackson.
Looking at the trailer again after a decade, maybe more, he is copying the first Evil Dead movie with a lot of the cuts and close up of the faces with the fisheye centered on the eyeball.Never noted how similar they are before.
