    • The Middleman: Transylvania 6-5000, Dubbie.

      Referencing the Bugs Bunny short, made in 1963, where Bugs ends up in Pittsburghe, Transylvania and enters into a duel of magic phrases with Count Blood Count. The title was later used for Transylvania 6-5000 (1985), starring Jeff Goldblum and Ed Begley, Jr., as tabloid reporters investigating monsters sightings in Transylvania. Both titles are a pun on the Glen Miller song PEnnsylvania 6-5000.
