This has got to be my favorite series.

I imagine there's gotta be something from Messiah of Evil, though technically he doesn't really get the shaft on film, only recounted in subsequent dialog.

For whatever reason, this is the first thing I thought of when the series started. Maybe I should have posted it on April Fool's Day, since it's a rare comedic appearance by Cook, not something he's as well-known for (it doesn't help that Hellzapoppin' continues to be denied a North American release due to rights issues).
