do people in the midwest call karaoke ka-ro-kee and not care-ee-o-kee? They call it karokee all the time and at first I thought they were making some obscure joke but it seems like a dialect thing. Like when they call roof a "ruff".

Dick Contino was in a movie in 2005 called I Was a Teenage Beatnik. His role, according to IMDb, was King of the Beatniks. I'm not sure that was good casting. :)

At around 59:35 you can see ans hear Joel turning the page on his script. I was wondering where that noise came from :)

A rare old bird is the pelican. His beak holds more than his belican. He can take in his beak enough food for a week; I'm damned if I know how the helican! I've loved that limerick since I learned it as a kid, but Joel is mistaken, it's not by Ogden Nash but Dixon Lanier Merritt. So, now you know that. ... um and Daddy-O sucks.

This is the first episode of MST3k I ever saw. I remember because the only part I remembered was Frank feeding the baby and the baby spitting the food out. I'll be god damned. Not only is that my first memory of this show. It is easily one of my earliest memories. Holy crap!

This movie is actually more watchable than most. The score helps a lot. The characters are decent and the plot is at least mildly interesting. Good episode!

In all the MST3K episodes I've seen, which is nigh-all of them, there is no character I can think of more consistently annoying than the female lead in this film. But maybe I'm just prejudiced against people who act like arrogant jerks and drive like psychopaths. :P

Though the pattycake beating session of "Daddy-Oh" isn't convincing in any way, it's awfully satisfying. Funny how many MST experiments involve a well-deserved beating of the ostensible hero...

The highlight of this ep is the running Popeye commentary from Crowtee starting around 1:20. Also the Welles line, which was awfully, awfully funny.

So, it was fashionable in the '50s for a bloke to wear his pants around his chest. Now it "fashionable'' to wear them around his knees. Funny how things change...

44:45 There it is again! That totally sounded like Luigi's Mansion!
I wonder if they made up that tune, or if that's actually from a song...
Also, I wonder if there was some foreshadowing to Joel's eventual departure from the show here...what with him going crazy during some sketches.

I'm pretty sure when they made this short, they just looked through whatever stock footage they had and stuck letters and narration over it. "T is for Trying Hard" over a video of bears? I don't think so.

Gah, this short is just so bad. The film is so bad, the rhymes are so bad and it just has no educational merit, especially not for young children (who I'm guessing it was geared towards.) It also contains plenty of good old fashioned nightmare fuels (as the boys would say.)
