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.

The spit take segment is funny, but I can't help but wonder who has to wipe off the set afterwards.

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!

What is with Dr. Forrester's forehead? There is this weird fake-looking crease in the opening teething nook sequence...

Does anyone else think that Gym Dude looks a little like Quentin Tarantino wearing huge glasses and making a stupid face?

I was totally fooled into thinking Daddy-O was a cigarette smoking, beer drinking, bad ass. Then he got up and sang. With his high pants.

Dick Contino really isn't a bad singer. He's kind of a crooner. That doesn't make the movie good, of course. :)

This is so cool. But if you have a consciousness problem seeing how amazing the riffs are...sign up for full body tattoos on the Satellite of Love, Crow is cool and horny.

"Got to think! Must try to think, but too stupid!!"
After all these years, that's one of the lines I always remember from MST3K.

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!

Ugh, just a really slow, dull movie. Host segments are funny, there are some good riffs, but I've never been able to finish it.

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.

(And the rest of the host segments were as goofy as always - love it!)

Laugh if you will about his odd pants positioning; Daddy-O did nail down smoldering hot Jana! And lest not we forget, Urkel eventually scored Laura Lee Winslow, striking a blow for pants hikers everywhere!

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...

The sequel to this movie, about the guy coming back to haunt the people who killed him, was called, "Sonny came home... WITH A VENGEANCE!"

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.)
