So why is everyone awestruck by creepy girl? I love the Servo riffs but i'm talking about the guys in the film. She is nice looking but so is EVERY other girl in the movie! and to disrespect the four girls who are with you to loudly ogle a fifth seems just.... too lame for words.

The guy from Arizona is surprised by the amount of skin the girls are showing in California? Have you been to AZ in the summer? It is so warm the hot girls wear LESS than bikinis. Specially around ASU.

I hope that I never will see
A sight sadder than bad comedy.
Little Richard's a guest,
And he gives it his best,
But I'm still as bored as I can be.

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:

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.

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.
