    • After seeing the beginning of a teacher's video, one of the judges says 'Dead Poets Society has ruined a generation of educators;' the video then proceeds to show a teacher who looks and acts like Robin Williams. "Dead Poets Society" is a 1989 film in which Robin Williams plays a non-traditional English teacher at a 1950s boys' school who inspires his students and stirs up their interests in poetry and literature.
      Dan Castellaneta provides the voice of the instructor, doing a spot-on impression; Castellaneta had previously replaced Williams as the voice of Genie in the sequel to "Aladdin" and the animated series that followed.
