Giant arthropods strike in the night,
and fill San Lorenzo with fright.
The scorpion's sting
is a terrible thing,
but their bark is much worse than their bite.

San Lorenzo tiene miedo
porque los oficiales no puedo
matar los alacranes--
son demasiado gigantes--
que marcharon del volcano nuevo.

"That Old Volcano is really causing a lot of trouble this time" I was thinking, "Better Spank the Hell out of it, then!"

I was glad Joel hinted about the announcer/narrator, asking wonder what he looks like? Because he is clearly Les Tremayne, king of the announcers for several decades, radio onwards. And he also was third banana in lots of movies.

They definitely needed that "powerful healing salve that will bring back our rugged good looks."

The Black Scorpion can't move as fast as a white one cause his pants are to low.

I felt like Crow was about to cry at the end there. Amazing how much one can emote with a bowling pin and a couple of pingpong balls with pupils drawn on.

I don't think Cambot speaks very good Spanish. I know I heard Crow say something about a cat.

I like how the two guys were totally shocked at there being all this damage IN A VOLCANIC DISASTER ZONE!

What the hell was that clapping?

Wow, could they have made less effort to make those steering-wheel motions match the driving footage behind them?

I'm surprised they didn't riff the 'ancient squeaking scorpion' (34:52) that sounds strangely like a mouse getting squeezed.

Ram Chips - Good thing: Willis O'Brien's stop action animation. Bad things: Over-use of drooling scorpion face and Juanito (except when he is chased by the giant mutant tick - 'Quick, somebody get a lit cigarette!')

Two great host segments! Love Tony Pepdardt's letter to Crow and Gypsy as The Black Scorpion (too bad her tail fell off, although something about the way the puppet/robots fall apart is just so funny in itself!)

Dr. E: "Come in, Joel, my little free-floating clambake...." "Wild boy."

Dr. F.: "Until next time, my little skin-on wiener." o_0

I'm so tempted to call somebody "free-floating clambake" or "skin-on wiener" IRL just to see what their reaction is.

And at about 00:18:12, we get a sketch that clearly inspired the Judge/Daniels team when they created Peggy Hill. :D

The recurring theme of applauding every time the doctor is introduced just got funnier as it went along!

"Josh Weinstein" is not usually the first name that comes to mind when you think of the people behind MST3K, but his contributions were enormous. Besides helping to write the theme song, performing in front of and behind the camera, writing gags and operating puppets from the KTMA days onward, Weinstein reportedly discovered a struggling young comedian named Mike Nelson and asked him to join the crew. He makes a quiet, graceful exit at the end of this episode (while wearing several pounds of green makeup).
