Nickname: "The Desk Lamp"

FX/SFX/Cheesy Factor: The lamp swinging and the flickering. Typical animation for the early 80's.

Music/Sounds: None or an announcer saying "Distributed by Lamp Video."

Variant: There is a variant where the color is a little darker than usual. This is seen on the video release of Bang, Boom, Splat!

Availability: Rare; Lamp Video didn't have much releases.

Scare Factor: None to Minimal; Nothing to really be scared of.
