SYNOPSIS: Cliff Steele and Rebis of the Doom Patrol appear in "Lesson Number Five: 'Not Many Angels Will Fit on the Head of a Pin!'", as Ambush Bug attempted to gain membership on the team. He showed up dressed as a gay caballero with his head stuck up the rear end of a big teddy bear with a head in the shape of a cathedral with wings. Unfortunately, he was rejected when Cliff thought his sound effects were way too traditional. Rebis did like the Bug's teddy bear placement, though Cliff thought it was derivative of Godard.

COMMENTS: What can you say about Ambush Bug? Just plain damn funny, and the Doom Patrol were pretty damn funny here, too.
