Gimme a Hand is the fifty-eighth episode of Count Gauntly's Horrors from the Public Domain.


Gauntly and Ogrot welcome the viewer, and explain that they have been experimenting with transplanted body parts. The duo performs a series of tasks with "substitute hands," including eating and attempting to play an instrument. Before they can try shaving, however, Gauntly segues into The Brain that Wouldn't Die.

Next, Gauntly and Ogrot give head transplantation a go. Ogrot now shares a body with the Projectionist, and Gauntly with the Blizzard Wizard. The four(?) prepare to sing "Put Your Head on My Shoulder," but suddenly Torgo from Manos: The Hands of Fate enters. Torgo asks if the Crypt-Dwellers can spare a hand for him, seeing as they have so many surplus body parts of late. However, remembering Torgo's attempt to take over the show in his previous appearance, Gauntly rebuffs him. Furious, Torgo attacks.

Later, a table is sitting center stage with the Crypt-Dwellers' heads on it (as well as an arm and a leg or two). The assembled appendages perform "Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes."

In a stinger ending, Torgo enters a now vacant crypt, picks up a loose hand lying on the table, and shuffles away.
