Opus and Bill Death Toasters Screensaver (Original Version)
Status Lost

In 1993, one of Delrina's screensaver products was based on the licensed Bloom County characters Opus the Penguin and Bill the Cat. The initial Opus 'n Bill screensaver, launched in 1993, landed the company in court as its Death Toasters module depicted Opus taking shots at a number of flying toasters, a well-known emblem in Berkeley System's Flying Toasters module from their After Dark screensaver. The infamous screensaver featured wings on its toasters rather than helicopter blades, making it similar to the Flying Toasters screensaver from the original After Dark.

Due to the lawsuit regarding Delrina and Berkeley Systems, most copies of the Opus 'n Bill screensaver only features the Death Toasters screensaver with helicopter blades on it. However, it was unknown if the initial copies of the screensaver were either archived or saved or were even still available.
