Question wget...url-encoded filenames

I couldn't find an option in wget to get rid of those urlencoded filenames (i.e. shortcircuit%20(d64).zip) when downloading from websites...
is there a way to batch-rename theese ?
I'm too lazy to write a perl script now =(

AFAIK it has a renaming convention but you'd have to specify the name of the file and what to rename it, in which if your doing many many files, I'd probably just suggest writing that perl script or maybe a bash script to rename them when done.
