Here are the scans for the screenplay Operation:
Red Chicken Disco Jesus along with some photos of the Wreck-Gar folder I found it in, which obviously protected the script from the elements at some point. Without Wreck-Gar, the script would have surely been lost to the annals of time.

Red Chicken Disco Jesus – The Screenplay
I found the script for Operation:
Red Chicken Disco Jesus the other day while looking for a D&D module. Honestly, I can’t remember if the mime joke made it in. It is probably also worth mentioning that the script was in a Wreck-Gar folder.
In episode 4 of LJ’s Trip LJ is been summoned by Mr. Archer, Producer in the Chicken and Breasts film division at Trippers Inc. It seems that some of LJ’S shenanigans and tomfoolery has not gone unnoticed! And Mr. Tom Foolery is not happy! It seems that a mysterious ressurectee has invaded the time trip-line that LJ has so carefully butt-tickled into nonsense. This foe threatens to drill LJ a new one, a BIG new one, and to cyborgize his neander-baby!

Red Chicken Disco Jesus was shot sometime when I was in high school. Chris edited a full version of it at some point. However, I’m not certain if this version exists any longer. Over the weekend, I came across a tape with most (if not all) of the original source footage on it. So I recut the movie, added some sound effects and a song.
Why the film was called Disco Jesus is a question now lost to time (or at least to me). As I seem to recall, there was an actual script entitled Red Chicken. In the film, “Red Chicken” is the name of the mission to destroy the demon. At some point in time however, everyone stopped calling the film Red Chicken and rechristened it Disco Jesus. It is possible that the rechristening had to do with a character called the Highwayman who does not appear in the Redux edit of the film. In addition to the unhinged soldier, the Highwayman was played by Brian. All that was ever shot of the Highwayman was Brian in a trench-coat with shoe polish on his face walking down, you guessed it, a highway. Personally however I suspect there wasn’t actually a reason for calling the film Disco Jesus, other than we liked the name.
- Note: In the film at around 2 minutes and 39 seconds the painting Tina is featured. An earlier post on Protozoic, discussing the painting, has become increasingly popular with our German readership.
Death is another oil change
hatched in my day's way.
Stupid death and stupid dying.
Who made it anyway?
The old hen pecking God?
Well, I'll cock and sock his nose,
make him roost the golden egg
chooking as I hearsing go.
For from the shells I sell to L-OC-als
I'll build feather couping waves,
Buy up Death's garage and scythe,
chicken farming from the grave.
