So this was the first episode to have a weird clip from the movie after the end credits.

Good Watch It Together for August 9th - 75th anniversary of the last attack on civilians using a nuclear bomb. Here's hoping that anniversary only gets older and older.

Total Failure. Both the main characters and the movie itself. another hard one for me to get thru.

It's just a theory, but I believe there is a riff that was cut from this episode for being too "late night" for the basic cable of the innocent early 90's.

(During the exchange between the "chunkiest couple on the block" at approximately 1:17:30)

Chunky Guy to Chunky Gal: "I've got twenty bucks and I'll blow it all on you tonight."
CROW: "Geez, if I were her I'd hold out for more than twenty bucks before I let him do that to me..."

Cheese price supports? They're really going to go after low income people who eat cheese? Sure we'd all be starving, but at least we'd have nukes! Oh wait, that sounds a lot like the ussr now that you mention it.

"Aren't these statellites just a good propaganda move on their part?" Nice to know the filmmakers knew the actual reason and significance of Sputnik but decided to use it for their own propaganda purposes.

They mention "The Conqueror" in the trivia segment. It starred John Wayne as Genghis Khan, which is one of the worst examples of a white guy imitating another race. It's also famous because it was filmed downwind from a nuclear testing site. By 1981, 91 people who worked on the movie developed cancer, and 46 died from it.

Ram Chips - Good things: Tom Servo's phone conversations and that North By Northwest was made the same year. Bad thing: The whole sorry ending beginning with Agent (What a dope) John getting gunned down in his inconspicuous white coat. As Crow said, Oh, I just don't understand this - we lost the commie threat? WHAT IS GOING ON HERE?!!!

I read somewhere that they gave Tom Servo a haircut because of complaints that his gumball head was a distraction against the movie screen. It didn't last long, fortunately.

The Soviets made their own version of this film which was nearly a shot for shot copy of ours, except their “British Agent” had more of a Flemish accent and “any suburb USA” Hazlet was replaced by idyllic "easy livin'" Krasnoznamensk.
Incidentally: their chunky tie-shunning truck driver went on to serve as General Secretary of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, just before their 1991 collapse.

Loved the "Airplane" call back at 36:00. "The white zone is for loading and unloading only." I laughed until they took me to a hospital. A hospital, what is it? It's a big building with doctors and medical equipment, but that's not important now!

Barry Mahon, the director of this movie, was also the director of Errol Flynn's last movie, "Assault of the Cuban Rebel Girls" (IMDB lists it simply as "Cuban Rebel Girls"). And for Rifftrax fans, he also directed the Thumbelina part of "Santa and the Ice Cream Bunny".
