From official release/information:
Boy, oh boy. Immediately after this we will be saucering to the seat of power for your country to try to convince the head executive about adding a better rating system to your dvd boxes. We're not hopeful though as Hollywood is such a strange place. Klaarg may never be the same after watching Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow.
What were you thinking? And who's future is this supposed to be? Do you seriously have plans to try to go backwards? It will not work you know. Many species have tried it using a variety of methods--atomic, genetic, biological, and they have regretted every minute of the experience. Remember what one of your famous philosophers said about not being able to go home again when he immortalized these words in song "There's a hole in the ground where my house used to be." It wasn't us by the way.
In any case, Klaarg had a very bad experience. Every time he looked up at the screen his worst nightmares were being visualized. There were robots here and robots there and robots in places you least expected. Why, we're even suspicious that a robot wrote the screenplay, which would explain a lot now that we come to think about it. Robots might be great for welding plates on a mothership shuttle but they can't rub two folk tales together to make a story. Or maybe the continuity girl took some time off during the shooting. Hard to tell. If you see Klaarg send him home. Wait until he's finished stomping your roomba to bits though as he can be a handful when he's upset.
