The Illuminati is a secret society that was founded in 1976. The “Illuminati” is used in the 21st century as a code term for the world’s elite, who manipulate the masses to bring about a new world order. “Illuminutty” (Illuminati + nutty) is a parody term that has been used on the television animated comedy American Dad! (episode originally airing February 18, 2007). Canadian-born actor and comedian Jim Carrey made jokes about the “Illuminutty” in a television appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on November 13, 2014.
“Illuminutty” has been cited in print since at least 1998. The context of the use of “Illuminutty” should be examined to determine what is being parodied. Sometimes “Illuminutty” is a parody of the “nutty” (crazy) Illuminati, but at other times “Illuminutty” is a parody of conspiracy theorists (who are against the Illuminati).
The Illuminati (plural of Latin illuminatus, “enlightened") is a name given to several groups, both real and fictitious. Historically, the name refers to the Bavarian Illuminati, an Enlightenment-era secret society founded on May 1, 1776. The society’s goals were to oppose superstition, obscurantism, religious influence over public life and abuses of state power. “The order of the day,” they wrote in their general statutes, “is to put an end to the machinations of the purveyors of injustice, to control them without dominating them.” The Illuminati—along with Freemasonry and other secret societies—were outlawed through Edict, by the Bavarian ruler, Charles Theodore, with the encouragement of the Roman Catholic Church, in 1784, 1785, 1787 and 1790. In the several years following, the group was vilified by conservative and religious critics who claimed that they continued underground and were responsible for the French Revolution.
In subsequent use, “Illuminati” refers to various organisations which claim or are purported to have links to the original Bavarian Illuminati or similar secret societies, though these links are unsubstantiated. They are often alleged to conspire to control world affairs, by masterminding events and planting agents in government and corporations, in order to gain political power and influence and to establish a New World Order. Central to some of the most widely known and elaborate conspiracy theories, the Illuminati have been depicted as lurking in the shadows and pulling the strings and levers of power in dozens of novels, movies, television shows, comics, video games and music videos.

I also like Mel Brooks a lot. Blazing Saddles and Spaceballs are my faves of his. I wonder if Mel Brooks were to do a Gargoyles spoof movie, what would it be like? All I can think of is that he’d have the Illuminutty Society, run by “Mr. Dullval,” and Oberon might be called Obi-Ron Kenobe. Anyone else have an idea what other damage Mel Brooks might do if he got the rights?
