Wow. Little Richard is not the ONLY black guy in the movie. 14:39 Lower Right part of the screen. Sitting facing 1/4 stage right. A BLACK GUY... on screen for an entire 10 seconds. No lines, but still...

Here I go again, watching this bumbling, foolish child's tale...but HEY! That's why I'm here... for the torture. Thank Gawd for the MST3K crew.
P.S. I thought it was going to be about some gourmet, salty, flower buds from an island off the California coast. WWIT?

Where is the intro-cartoon from? It reminds me of a children's alphabet book I had when I was young. My parents knew the guy who made it. Maybe the same person?

I was looking up the Carol Conners song in the movie ('The Book of Love') and found this excerpt from a surfing movie book (which I afterwards bought). They talked to the cinematographer on the film and, low and behold, he did three other MST3K films as well! Anyways ... I kind of like this movie, especially the way it looks, so give the portion a read:

Joel rips off Crow's arms at 1:15:00. Good thing they established this doesn't effect him because I know they some times fall off during the movie scenes. lol

I couldn't take the whole film. This led to epic tv like the Love Boat, which should have filled in for the real Titanic. Whoever is still living from the cast is presently smearing their name on the nursing home wall with their own excrement. Just sayin'.

Fun fact: the bazooka was originally the name of a musical instrument built by Bob Burns during WWI (if I remember correctly), so Joel isn't taking something evil and making it fun with the tickle-bazooka, he's just taking it back to its fun origins. :)

This ep is classic, and it's such a tragedy that it was pretty much a "lost episode" for most of MST's life on CC. Plus Creepy Girl is one of the best MST songs and one of the most all-around adorable host segments.

"My Creepy Girl" is seriously one of my very favorite songs in the entirety of MST3K. Actually, the whole segment with Tom mooning over Creepy Girl, with Joel and Crow slow-dancing upstage is just pure joy.

To finally answer that vexing question about Creepy Girl's ethnicity, Ulla Strömstedt (1939-1986) was Swedish. Who'da thunk it?

Another missed Star Trek opportunity in this one. Just as they didn't notice that JC in Sidehackers was Korax from The Trouble With Tribbles, Tad in this movie (Dan Duryea's son) was Lt. Jose Tyler, the Navigator from the first Star Trek pilot. On the other hand, even if they had noticed it, no real character was developed for him in Trek that could have been riffed on.

OK, I don't get it. They found 100+ beautiful girls for this film but couldn't find ONE good looking man to play the part of Charlie who is supposed to be such a chick magnet? Instead, they cast a goofy, pink, puffy-eyed Creepy Guy with a missing tooth and plastic Ken hair in the role...sheesh.

Is anybody else familiar with that madcap delight of a movie that featured Catalina Island called The Glass Bottom Boat(1966)? It's opening credits/cartoon resembles the one for Catalina Caper (1967) and I bet it was copied.

The point of using the plastic bag to keep the gun dry is A: it's portable, taking up almost no space in your kit. and B: it gives you easy access in a pinch, you can even shoot through it.

So, my friend hired me recently to sing a love song to his girlfriend. I know, awkward situation, but my friend (the guy with a girlfriend) really has no singing voice whatsoever. He didn't specify a song, just said it had to be romantic, and that a bit of silliness is always nice. What song did I pick? That's right, I sang Creepy Girl to her. Keep in mind, they are both very good friends of mine. But... I sang it in front of both their families. I'm afraid that this song has set up a Romeo and Juliet style conflict between their families..... For the record, she loved it.

I tell you I could have taken anything this movie had: the mind numbing plot, pratfall mania, the suicide-inducing Vaudeville act of Mr. Duval and Lawrence, the unwatchable lip syncing by the unlistenable band, even Lyle Waggoner walking around the beach in street shoes! I could have taken it all with a smile on my face and song on my lips for just ONE of those angry pouty jealous looks my way by Charlie’s super boss sister Tina! She is Cat-Cat-Catalina Craaazy Gone Man!
