Welcome to The Story Behind: Clue Series. In every episode of this series, we talk about the history of one of the original weapons used in the game, “Clue.” This series may not be appropriate for all ages and listener discretion is advised.

This is the second-to-last episode of The Story Behind Clue Series. Since we’re out of weapons to talk about, let’s shift our attention to the movie I’ve gotten tons of clips from. And I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who has sent in clips for the series -- I had a lot of fun putting these episodes together.

I’m your host, Emily Prokop, and this is The Story Behind Clue: The Movie.

The Clue Series Butler you heard at the beginning of the episode was played by Paul from Rick and Paul Heal the World.

The role of Roger Ebert was played by Adam Higgins from Odd Dad Out and Mom & Dad Cuss a Little.
