That silly line, which was originally "They took away his stove and he became...deranged," is actually a variation on wonderfully awful movie tagline copy.
I was heading south on I-94 some years ago and heard one of those overheated "They took away his (something or other) and he became (the title of the movie)."
It was at that moment that the idea of doing ridiculous movie taglines presented itself. Imagine, if you will, "They gave him back his beaker and he became...revialed" or "They took away his lamp and he became...delighted."
You get the idea.
By the way, there is film entitled Deranged
, directed by the same guy who gave us the Porky's
series and A Christmas Story
: Bob Clark.
