Kwiz Nein!


What movie character wore a shirt with this logo on it? I will tell you that the movie came out between 1969 and 1994. And to get this out of the way, it's not Cheech. Or Chong. (Note: this isn't the exact shirt, but it is the exact logo--I believe the character had it on a yellow shirt in the film.) (Photo courtesy some ebay seller--and I only found it because I saw it in the movie and searched for the logo; I'm not in the market for weed shirts....)

Comments:
Jeff Spicoli, Fast Times at Ridgemont High
 
Fast Times at Ridgemont High
 
No twice.
 
Matthew McConaughey's character, David Wooderson, in Dazed And Confused?
 
Not that I know of. (The usual rule applies that if you can prove your answer is correct, you'll get some credit, but, McC is not who I was thinking of.)
 
This Is Spinal Tap
 
Nope. Also, I'm looking for the exact character so if you say a movie, might as well throw out a character name.
 
Lieutenant Dan, Forest Gump?
 
No on Dan
 
Jenny Curran? Forest Gump...
 
Life is like a box of wrong answers.
 
Johnny Rotten in Sid & Nancy
 
Well if he did it woulda been in a sarcastic way...but no.
 
Tripper Harrison, Meatballs?
 
no go
 
Tony D'Annunzio in Caddyshack
 
No, but I really like that guess. That guy defines the tight, iron-on shirt era. (The original one.)
 
Jim Breuer in "Half-Baked"?
 
Negative.
 
Brian Cashman in The Grinch Who Stole Christmas
 
Okay, I will narrow down the year range: the movie was from the 1970s.
 
Bumpy Jonas, Shaft?

Are multiple guesses allowed?
 
Bluto in Animal House
 
No and no. And the only time you can guess twice in a row is if you guess and then I give a clue, you can guess before anyone does. Other than that, 1 guess per comment, and two in a row not allowed.
 
Matt Hooper in Jaws
 
Nope. He could afford to just buy it.
 
John "Bluto" Blutarsky - Animal House
 
I'll give ya another guess since that was guessed already......
 
Dennis Hopper in "Apocalypse Now"
 
Not quite.
 
"Not quite" was NOT a clue. If anyone guesses the right movie or actor or comes remotely close I'll say something.
 
Not sure how i missed Bluto.

Berger from Hair?
 
Nope.
 
Any other hints?
 
Al Pacino in "Serpico"
 
No on Pacino.

No on hints. For now.
 
Tom in Taxi Driver
 
That is not the character or movie. But you got the hint, which was that someone in the movie in question was in Twilight Zone: The Movie as well.

(I love the Al Brooks characters in both TZ and Taxi Driver....)
 
Albert Brooks, Real Life?
 
No. Sorry, I should've specified that Tom was played by Albert Brooks in Taxi Driver, therefore it's not Brooks. So you can have another guess if you want to.
 
Dan Aykroyd, Mr. Mike's Mondo Video?
 
Sorry to say, that's not it.
 
Elwood Blues in Things We Did Last Summer
 
That's not it.
 
Is the answer Kelly Leak in Bad New Bears....Vic Morrow who was in TZ-The Movie was also in BNB.
 
John Lithgow, Rich Kids?
 
Plainclothesman (as Douglas McGrath), Helter Skelter?
 
Nothing correct yet. A few people have guessed TV movies. It's not a TV movie.
 
Walter Matthau in the Bad News Bears...since you didn't specifically say that the actor in the Twilight Zone was the same person who wore the t-shirt in the movie in question.
 
Dave in OR nailed it exactly! (I said "nothing correct before his comment popped up, but obviously he wrote it before then. Also note that comment hadn't been posted yet when Matty wrote his, so he'll definitely get some credit for also getting the right movie.)

It is Kelly Leak in Bad News Bears. And yes, Vic Morrow, is the common actor in BNB and TZ: The Movie.

Kelly wears the shirt (a yellow one with the same logo) while driving Amanda around on his bike. Point breakdown to come.

Very nice job, Dave in OR. And also Matty.
 
Dave in OR gets 3.5

Matty gets 1.5

pweezil gets .3, Kara, Neil H, duffy get .2, AJM gets .1
