This was the first episode I ever saw. With no idea what MST3K was I searched for RoMo on youtube and found this. "Okay, whatever, the commentary seems nice too." Six years later I am on my third complete run through of every episode!

It appears that they filmed outdoors because they had no money to rent lights. No real sets other than what Griffith Park and Bronson Cave could offer.

Seriously what the F*&@ is going on in this movie?! I love it, easily one of the worst things I've ever seen!

Joel.. God bless his heart for trying to find some spec of decency in this surreal piece of CRAP!

I am sorry. Commando Cody is a little TOO much into that auto-eroticism. I mean, he is just twisting his nipples left and right. I am afraid that one day he is just going to twist those nipples right off.

Oh Commander Cody You're the best, Nipple twist and Nipple twist and Weeeee

That Gorilla Alien with a helmet complete with tv antenna, would've put Jim Henson's Creature Shop to shame.

My god, this movie was SO BORING! Have something happen! The riffing was funny, but that's it. Why was this even made?

I'm so glad I finally watched this episode. Now I recognize the clip used in the opening of the TV show Svengoolie :-)

And last time I checked, wasn't the original movie of Robot Monster available as public domain in the Library of Congress and on Archive.org so what gives?

The youtube link seems to have been flagged and is blocked from US viewing but at least the Vimeo one still works!

Every movie or short from this era (commando cody era) the bad guys wanna take over the world...and yet somehow the world is the same thing as a single county and the entire human population is 2-4 over-explaining white guys, a few inept goons and 1 woman who does absolutely nothing to move the story along

Joan is quite the spunky, empowered woman. After parachuting from a crashing plane, she brushes herself off, and hitchhikes back to work. She looked like she enjoyed the parachuting. Makes up for her role as cook on the Rocketship.

I like the alleged resemblance of Clayton Moore to John Clease the boys riffed on.

I can't believe no one commented on the fact that if cody was doing such important work why his building has no flipping security.

I love it how the bride is covered from head to toe and yet her fiancee can't seem to find a simple shirt anywhere!

How much we have advanced in 15 years! We know how bumblebees fly nowadays. What can we do in the next 15 years?

How could such a horrible movie be made for 12000?? That's a lot of money for the time!

08:33 I can't believe with all their ST:TOS references they missed the first four notes of the theme song. same rhythm and instrumentation even!

The director of this film later tried to shoot himself in the head... but missed.

"What's the kid going to do with the hot-glue-gun?" Crow asks. They forget, Joel used the same prop similarly earlier in this very episode!

How many movies used that alligator vs monitor-lizard footage? There's at least three just on MST.

They say this film stars nobody but I remember Gregory Moffett from the old George Reeves Superman TV show. ... in one episode...

If the men you have now can't get you money, then use the money you don't have to hire someone who can get you money, for money.

Ram Chip moments - Bad Thing: Inane toy xylophone music and cruel treatment of animals. Good Thing: Alien Bubble machine.

Jeez. The "plucky boy hero" in this movie manages is so damn worthy of a good kick in the little pants. I kept waiting for a giant fiery turtle to fly in and carry him away. No such luck, though. :/

Dr. F: "Come in Joel-y, you pusillanimous poltroon!"
"Jolita, my little vacuum flower!"

Dr. E: "You anti-gravitational sewage leak!"

I had to go look up "pusillanimous." :o

Normally the guys are quite good at hiding as they control Tom Servo and Crow. But at 49:00 you clearly see Kevin Murphy's head. Please comment if this is common, and I have just missed it all these years. (?)

Unlike most other commenting misties I have seen, I quite enjoy opening up an episode and seeing 2 parts of "Commando Cody" listed as the short.
Please laugh this if you agree.

Gal Dagon - about 2 years ago

He has a friend (the scientist) who gets into more fistfights and is frankly better at it. He has a ridiculous looking nemesis, with thugs as his sidekicks. He flies like a spaz. He is, quite frankly, in over his head.

Is Cody an early precursor to the Pumaman?

Why doesn't this episode get any love? Sure, Commando Cody has gotten beyond stale by this time, but the feature is funny even without the riffing (which is pretty spot on for a Season 1 episode). Plus, what beats a scenic picnic with a guy in a combo gorilla/astronaut suit?
