Did they just forget that the cumber-bubble-bun was Joel's invention in 107? I know they rerused most of the KTMA ones, but I think the only other time they reused an invention was Hellcats, where the crew was having flashbacks.

"Gamera is like a lemon drop, high above the chimney tops!" That is indeed what happens when you go over the rainbow, and as the capper to the Skittles and Starburst jokes, it's perfect.

"Flying is what makes life worth living. That's why I'm quitting now."

They did away with my favorite riff from the season 0 version. "Looks like a chicken pot pie..." Gamera lands. You get a few seconds to digest the joke. You see the flames around the landing site flare up. "Mmm! Turtle pot pie!!" (Works even better because it sounds almost like turkey.) You need the setup and response. Doesn't work half as well with only one.

Another one of those rare invention exchanges that became a real product. Anyone remember the "dancing Coke can"? Fad product that came out not too long after this episode (sometime in the mid-90s). I've still got mine. I wonder if someone at Coke was watching this episode...

Is this movie ACTUALLY the last time Crow uses the 'By this time, my lungs were aching for air!' pun? Or is that ignored for later series episodes?

I used to play warhammer and other table top strategy/war games. so the Fighting men and Monsters host segment is comedy genius to me. The first time i saw it i laughed so hard i couldn't breath. Taking the time to set up a battle map that size and detailed for a single skit proves their devotion to their art, and Toms rapid fire delivery of insanity takes it over the top! Also judging by the still pics they showed it looks like they had a lot of fun destroying it to.

I thought Tom Servo was humming "Jerusalem" by William Blake at the beginning of the 3rd host segment.

The difference between white explorers and Japanese explorers? White explorers actually shoot the natives (jungle goddess), Japanese explorers just fire a lot of shots into the air.

Im a little late to the game but there was a post on here about Tom saying "a little nip in the air" and that it was racist? i didnt immediatly go there since to me it just means it was cold because barugon froze everything. You like "its a wee bit nippy out side" Am i missing something am i unknowing making a racial slur? hmm...

Where is the main character, key-sue-kay or however you spell it, getting his clean suits from? One minute he's wearing a ragged shirt on an island then he's got a pressed three piece suit on. Even admitting the fact of movie-hood it makes no sense.

This is the only Sandy Frank monster epic that I'd find watchable even without the riffs. Yeah, I did kind of get drawn into the Jim Thompson-esque subplot with the double-crossing thieves. The total lack of annoying, shrill-voiced, know-it-all children in little pants? Also a big plus.

The people who wrote these movies really must not have cared at all. The solution is luring Barugon into water with a five inch wide diamond hanging from a helicopter because water paralyzes him and he'll drown. Sigh.

What the hell is happening at 48:54-49:00? What's being implied? I can only think of rape but that would make no sense. He kills two people, panics, and runs from the scene, rushes a group of people out of a car (I think?) and then rapes a girl in the front scene? Not to mention, he does this all within like ten seconds?

Ram Chips- Good thing: No Kenny! Bad thing: Too much melodrama involving boring people. Gamera didn't get into the act until 1:28 minutes into the film.

I'm a HUGE fan of this show, but, Kung Fu is Chinese, as was Bruce Lee. Few too many racial jokes in this one for me. "little nip in the air"? Please, they should be above that type of stuff.

The "5000 Piece Fightin' Men and Monsters Set" bit is probably my favorite host segment. The writing is on the ragged edge of insanity, and Kevin's rapid-fire delivery is perfect!
