Just to add to my review in User Comments (http://us.imdb.com/title/tt0040844/usercomments-2):
I didn't realize when I wrote my review that the HAUNTED WORLD (http://us.imdb.com/title/tt0113270/) DVD contains a commentary track for this film. I found it quite amusing that people actually involved with the "restoration" were confused at the end about which character was the hero and which the villain.
I suspect the culprit is that stupid funeral scene. After all, who would spend three minutes of a twenty-minute film lamenting the demise of a thieving, murdering skunk?
Eddie Wood, that's who.
