Welcome to Eltingville was a proposed television series that aired one episode on March 3, 2002 on Adult Swim. After the pilot aired, the show was not picked up. The series is based around creator Evan Dorkin's comic book Dork!. It follows the lives of four members of The Eltingville Club, Bill Dickey, Josh Levy, Pete DiNunzio and Jerry Stokes, who are shown to be stereotypical nerds and losers. The club's purpose is not explained in the show, but the characters are seen participating in nerdy things, including a game of Dungeons & Dragons and a Trivia-Off.

Synopsis[]

The misadventures of four boys who are big fans of comic books, toys, trading cards and science fiction.

Plot[]

The episode begins with the Eltingville Club playing a game of Dungeons & Dragons, where they are introduced as losers even in their own fantasy world. They argue with Jerry over who gets resurrected, wake up Bill's mom, who yells at Bill to die? Tell your little FREAK friends to SHUT THE HELL UP OR GET THE HELL OUT! Bill and Josh then get into a fight after blaming each other. Afterward the members go through their business: Jerry has collected 300 letters of support (Under assumed names) to get Paramount Pictures to produce a Captain Sulu show, Pete built a bootleg Thing with Two Heads resin model while watching Sliders and Bill failed to contact Gene Roddenberry from the beyond the grave. All of their accounts are put to shame by Bill's build up of his Sexy Sirens of Sci-Fi and Horror Revealed: Volume 10 video tape until they actually view the tape; it turns out to be a video of The Hair Bear Bunch. Josh is teased by the others, making him angry and causing him to choke Jerry. They all get into another fight, wake up Bill's mom (Again). This time, she kicks Jerry, Pete and Josh out of the house. Bill subsequently kicks Josh out of the club. The next day, Bill awakes from a nightmare which he called a Freaky Premonition and decides to let Josh back into the club. The club reconvenes at the movie theater, where they plan on hopping movies. After two hours they were discovered and tossed out. After that, they go to a toy store, play video games and steal a kid's toy at a fast food restaurant. They end their day at Joe's Fantasy World, a local comic book shop.

Inside the store, Bill and Josh discover a mint condition Kenner 12-inch Boba Fett action figure from the 1980s, complete with the Wookiee scalps. They both jump to buy it from Joe, who sees the opportunity to take advantage of them and charges them $300 for the toy. Since the two cannot settle their differences, Josh challenges Bill to a Trivia-Off, with Fett as the prize. The trivia battle rages on for several hours. Finally, Bill defeats Josh by asking. Who says Biddi Biddi Biddi? He answers. JERRY! (Who commonly repeats the phrase) although he knowingly meant Twiki from Buck Rogers in the 25th Century. Josh declares he's going home to get the money for the toy before Bill can. The two race back to their homes, causing many incidents on the way. Bill finds his mother's checkbook and Josh takes his mother's purse. Meanwhile, back at Joe's, Jerry and Pete debate if Boba Fett is really dead after the events of Return of The Jedi. When Bill and Josh return to the store, they learn Joe won't take checks nor credit cards and the two get into a fight over Fett. They accidentally snap off his head, resulting in the both of them having to combine their funds to purchase the expensive, now worthless toy. All four are then kicked out of the store. Bill angrily walks away with Boba's head and leaves Josh with the body. While Josh weeps on the ground, Jerry tells Pete, If Boba Fett wasn't dead before, he sure as hell is now. Willoughby breaks the fourth wall, asking Is this the end of the Eltingville Club?! To be continued…
