Attack of the Helping Hand is a 1979 short film written and directed by Scott Spiegel and starring Linda Quiroz and Sam Raimi.


Linda Quiroz plays a woman at home who buys herself a "Hamburger Helper" oven mitt. It comes to life and tries to strangle her. She tries drowning it in the kitchen sink, which doesn't work. It then proceeds to kill the Milk Man (Sam Raimi) with a kitchen knife which resorts to the woman trapping the Hand in a bucket but the Hand escapes easily. She catches it and puts it through the blender, killing it. She then proceeds to cook the hamburgers herself, only to find the Pillsbury Doughboy on her bench.
