The motion picture Gremlins (1984) stars Hoyt Wayne Axton (1938-1999) as Randall Peltzer, a prolific inventor with persistent cash-flow problems. Among other things, the motion picture discloses many of Peltzer's inventions, including the "Bathroom Buddy," the "Peltzer Smokeless Ashtray," and the "Peltzer Pet." This essay takes the form of an opinion letter evaluating the patentability ofPeltzer's inventions.
