Buckaroo's House can be found at 757 Kingsman Ave., Rustic Canyon, California, USA.

Great campy flick! No matter how many times I view it, I get a kick out of seeing the mountains surrounding Yoyodyne Industries which in the movie is supposed to be in Grovers Mills, NJ (BTW, where the Martians landed in Orson Welles' 1938 radio broadcast of "War of the Worlds"!!). The problem is, Grovers Mills NJ (outside Princeton) is very flat. Very pretty, lots of trees, but flat. [Thanks to Jim McGrath]
