It turns out Norman is not just an odd person who flew into,
I guess, Detroit sometime in the 70s, but also a recurring character
who's had several films that appear to have been designed for the
educational market:

describes the experience so:

Look up the word "disaster" in the dictionary and it
should say "See Krasner, Norman." This comedy classic introduces
Norman and his penchant for turning even a trip to the men's room
into a hilarious comedy of errors.

And then we get Norman into hte world of recreational forensics with
Norman Gives A Speech:

or at they put it:


Norman's back. And this time he's got a deadline to
keep! Anyone who's ever had to prepare and deliver a major
presentation in a short period of time will find this an
identifiable and entertaining guide for what not to do! With
effortless ability, Norman Krasner turns common misfortune into
near-disaster.


Grade Levels: 4 to Adult


Also, what the heck, 70s?
