Yankovic and Levey wrote the film after Yankovic's second studio albumlooking to apply the musician's parody and comedy to film, and chose the approach of George being a straight man with a vivid imagination to support the inclusion of parodies within the film.
Principal filming took place around Tulsa, Oklahomawith many of the extras for the film from the Tulsa and Dallas, Texas areas. UHF earned mixed critical reviews, and was further impacted by being released in the middle of one of Hollywood's largest blockbuster summer periods.
While only a modest success during its theatrical release, it became a cult film on home video and cable TV. George Newman is a daydreamer with a hyperactive imagination, making it difficult for him and his friend Bob to keep a steady job. George's uncle Harvey wins the deed to Channel 62, a UHF television Bruno Nicolai Corri Uomo Corri Original Motion Picture Soundtrack In Full Stereoin a poker game, and Harvey's wife Esther urges him to put George in charge, hoping it will help turn his life around.
George and Bob find that the station is nearly bankrupt and struggles for ratings with its lineup of reruns. Fletcher suspects George is trying to spy on them, and has his henchmen throw him out. Outside, George runs into Stanley, a janitor just unfairly fired by RJ over Sound Dimension Mojo Rocksteady Beat misplaced files they were on RJ's desk chair all the timeand offers him a job at Channel Even Tuell Workshop 07 George and Fad Gadget Gag attempt to create new programs, including a live children's show, "Uncle Nutzy's Clubhouse" with George as its host.
The new shows barely alter Channel 62's low viewership, and Bob warns George they are days from becoming insolvent. To add to George's misery over this, he realizes he had stood up his girlfriend Teri on her birthday for a dinner he set up, and she leaves him. Depressed, George goes Paolo Zavallone Group Musical Cocktail 1 2 Musical Flashes "Uncle Nutzy" and laments about his life and then, during a break, decides to head to a bar to get a drink, letting Stanley take over the show.
By the time George and Bob arrive at the bar, they find its patrons are eagerly watching Channel 62 The Lumineers Winter EP the humorous slapstick antics of Stanley. George and Bob race back, finding renewed interest in the station. Inspired by Stanley, George comes up with a whole range of wacky shows to fill Channel 62's schedule, all headlined by the newly re-titled "Stanley Spadowski's Clubhouse", and tries to make amends with Teri.
Soon, Channel 62's ratings rival that of Channel 8's, infuriating RJ. RJ offers to pay off Harvey's debt in exchange for the deed to Channel 62, which he plans to shut down afterward there were FCC by-laws at the time forbidding the ownership of two TV stations in the same town [ why? Once Esther learns of this, she coerces Harvey into giving George the opportunity to make a counter-offer. George, after moping outside over the situation and wondering what to do, comes up with the idea of a telethon to sell stock in the station, which would not only save it from RJ but also make it publicly owned if they succeed.
The telethon launches with great interest, fueled by Stanley's boundless energy. RJ sends his henchmen to kidnap Stanley, which stalls the telethon. Philo, the station's engineer who had previously bugged Channel 8, discovers the kidnapping and alerts George. George and several staff members mount a rescue mission to recover Stanley, bringing him back to the Weird Al Yankovic UHF Original Motion Picture Soundtrack And Other Stuff with only hours left before Big Louie's deadline.
RJ makes one last attempt to stall the telethon by issuing a live public statement, but Philo interrupts this via video intrusion with previously taken footage of RJ derogatorily Weird Al Yankovic UHF Original Motion Picture Soundtrack And Other Stuff to Teri about the city's population. Big Louie's limousine arrives, and Harvey anxiously concedes victory to RJ who, instead of taking the money right away, decides to celebrate his triumph with a speech to the crowd about what will become of the station.
Meanwhile, George is approached by a hobo whom he had helped earlier. The man wants to buy the rest of the stock with money he got from selling a rare doubled die cent that RJ had given him, as a pittance, unaware of its true value.
George hands the money over to Big Louie while RJ is still boasting to the crowd. Before RJ can do anything, Harvey signs the ownership transfer, and the station officially becomes publicly owned.
RJ learns that due to Channel 8 being tardy in filing for renewal of their broadcast license and, moreover, the rant Philo had broadcast, the FCC is revoking their license, while George and the rest of the Channel 62 staff and their audience celebrate and George and Teri rekindle their romantic relationship. Yankovic and his manager Jay Levey had discussed the idea of a movie for Yankovic aroundafter his second major successful album; his popularity at that time led the two to thinking what other venues would work for the musician.
After sketching out a number of such parodies for a film, the concept of Yankovic being the owner of a small-time UHF station broadcasting these parodies as shows was born, as this would not require having any significant plot to string the parodies together, in a manner similar to Airplane! The two attempted to shop the script around Hollywood film agencies for about three Deep Disco Deep Disco Edits without luck.
They were surprised when one of their agents had shown the script to the founders of a new production company, Cinecorp, who were Aashid Kosmik Gypsy in the script and had given it Dizzy Gillespie Soul Salvation producers Gene Kirkwood and John W.
Hyde ; Kirkwood stated he has previously seen Yankovic's videos and wanted to make a movie with him. The title of the Roots Evil That They Do was selected to refer to, at the time of the film's writing, the predominance of local television stations operating on ultra-high-frequency broadcastswhich were typically known for quirky, low-cost production shows, which the film spoofed.
