Seriously, the "Joey the Lemur" bit is about the most annoying bit in the entire series.

I haven't been paying much attention, but sweet father of goddess, they have the female scientists in skirts. Women have been allowed to wear pants on expeditions since THE LATE VICTORIAN ERA.

I love how fifties sci-fi seems to think that we could even reach the interstellar tech level with women being stereotypical shrieking fools.

When the crew landed on "planet Nova" and were first exploring what is obviously planet Earth, was anybody else thinking of how much it's like a bunch of little kids playing spacemen in the backyard?

I've started looking at the acting credits of some of the characters in the movies they watch. The male scientists were extremely active, playing numerous guest starring and recurring roles in TV shows for years after this movie. So this movie didn't destroy their future careers. :D

I think Bert's films are more watchable than most. I like creature features and occasionally there is funny parts like in this movie when the guy asked "did you see anything strange" then they cut to the giant dead wasp.

What are they talking about Joe deserving to have a second chance in the short? He drove like he had a lobotomy.

Over the course of the MST3K series we've seen some truly inept and unethical scientists and astronauts. But these people...these four really have to be the worst of the bunch, taking the Ross Allen method of slash and burn to other planets.

Ram Chips - Good thing: thanks to Joel and the bots the animals talk and have the best lines. Bad thing: Giant mutant lizard torture and Dick(weed)the zoogeographer.

I love how detonating a nuclear weapon on a young planet is considered an acceptable "Plan B". "Oh hey, this planet is in a stage equivalent to prehistoric Earth! Let's inundate it with absurd amounts of lethal radiation!"

Why even bother to have "lady scientists" in your film if all they do is scream, whine about marriage and generally serve as dead weight. Hell, the not-so-happy housewives of It Conquered The World had more gumption than this. And Queen Laura from The Outlaw was more sympathetic.

Ever notice Joel flubs a lot & they just keep it rollin'? Around 1:08 he asks if the Vultures "r Normal sized or Real size? They don't tell us that...". And earlier during the Joey the Lemur sketch he says "elder-me" instead of elderly. I love that they, like many of the movies they watch flub & keep on goin'. 2nd up is the occasional mistake from Trace's Crow, doesn't seem 2 happen much 2 him a lot. Not sure if I've ever heard Tom flub.

Bert I. Gordon directed 8 films that became MST3K episodes, more than any one director...and never has Bert I given less of a f*ck than here, in King Dinosaur. It's a masterpiece of cinematic apathy second only to Attack of the Eye Creatures.

They couldn't have hired a 6 year old to make a clay dinosaur?

No, good ol' Bert I just figured his audience was too stupid to spot the difference between a T. Rex and an iguana with a horn glued to its head. :P

So their entire crew consists of a zoologist, a geologist, a chemist, and a physician...That just leaves one question:

WHO FLEW THE BLOODY ROCKET???

Did they just point it in the direction of Nova, light the fuse, and pray?And even if they did something like that, how are they supposed to get back? NONE of them are qualified to fly that thing!

Okaay, so the title "King Dinosaur" is just a tad misleading. A bunch of lizards tearing into each other, a giant bee, some birds and a "lemur" do not a royal dinosaur make. Why not just call it, "Random Animal Stock Footage"? Or "We Filmed a Zoo"? Also, I feel bad for all the other critters just minding their own business on that island, like the giant armadillo and elephants... You know what, never mind.

I love how all the launch footage is stock footage of test launches of captured V-2s at White Sands. Still, a much classier use of old stock footage of rockets than "Creeping Terror", which showed us stock footage of an Atlas ICBM launch run in reverse and expected us to believe it was an alien spacecraft landing (uh huh, yeah, right).

Why, yes, I _am_ a hopeless old space history geek...

Joey the Lemur, whose in-film counterpart was a kinkajou-- what is up with this sketch? I just don't get it. It's a little disturbing.

Very delayed callback in Episode 611 - Last of the Wild Horses.

I love how, when they're fleeing the area before the nuke goes off, the women are shrieking and squealing hysterically, the guys are shoving them down the hill towards the raft, and the music score is mocking them: "Nyahhhh nyah-nyah nyahhhh nyah-nyah nyaahhh nyaahhhhhh...!" Still, I think Joel and the Bots missed a bet by not breaking out into the "Hawaii Five-O" theme when the "explorers" dived into the rafts and started paddling like hell across the lake.
