This screen saver is another crack-up from R.I. Soft Systems! It is skits about a dog that is always in trouble, Hoover. There appear to be 4 skits available right now, and this demo version gives you 2 of them. In Some Like It Hot Hoover finds a hot pepper and eats it-he never learns-and in Bubble Trouble Hoover finds a piece of bubble gum and eats it. [and boy does he have trouble blowing bubbles-from the wrong end!] This is one you ought to check out, it will make ya laugh!

As with all their screen savers, you can pay for this one or join their ScreenSaver club. If you do, you pay either $34.95 plus s&h for the standard membership, or $49.95 plus s&h for the gold membership. The above prices are for one year, and you get a full version screen saver every 4 to 8 weeks, exclusive club screen savers only for club members, a free CD Rom with over 400 space related photos, free subscription to a club newsletter, discount offers and coupons for other of their products, and with the gold membership you also get a free copy of the Screen Saver Hits CD-Rom which features the full, “pay for” versions of 9 of the most popular, [these would cost $65 singly] There is Hey Macaroni!, Macaroni Antics, Holyear vs Teethson, Mikey likes Ears.
