As far as sustained awfulness goes, what could exceed the scenes in the cave? All the actors were digging deep but just ended up shoveling refuse on their fellow actors.

So the whole rigmarole is a set up for a make-over for YeekGad -- there was shaving cream and much cavorting -- and then when he's all into it, they leave him holding the bag. That could turn a guy cynical. If he's still out there in his corner of as yet to be discovered America, I'd like to ask him about his romantic plans going forward; can he rediscover those days of innocence before he bagged ( in the archaic sense ) his first female and approach life as a pretty cool caveman with a helluva club ready for action? Only geological time will tell.

I'm confused. Her name is Roxanne, right? But the guy is singing love songs to her with other girl's names as she looks on lovingly? "Oh you sing about how you love other girls so wonderfully!"?

Man, that "squeeeeeeeeaaaaaK!" as she comes down the slide into the swimming pool! I wish I could think of a way to type that out as a riff...

On a whim, I looked up Richard Keil (guy who played Eegah), and found that he actually was in quite a few shows or movies. It was really surprising to see him as a Native American shaman in Kolchak: The Nightstalker.

Ah, this movie reminds me that in my salad days I had the email "watchout4snakes@muchmail.com". Still to this day whenever I hear someone say "what out for...", "snakes" pops into my head. Everytime.

The "Tequila" riff is one of my favorites... takes me back to my pep band days when my lack of school spirit led to many the half-hearted tequila 'yells' in the middle of the song.

Haha! Someone should make a playlist of all the terrible fathers in MST3k movies! It would definitely have to include:
1. Collaborator dad (from "Eegah")
2. Depressive dad (from "High School Big Shot")
3. Alcoholic hick dad (from "The Pod People")
4. Apathetic scientist dad (from "Horror of Party Beach")
5. Ineffectual doormat dad (from "Jack Frost")
... and many more!

There are two movie scenes that have made me genuinely sick to my stomach: one is that scene in "The Fly" where Jeff Goldblum pukes acid on that one guy's hand and melts it; the other is the shaving scene in "Eegah". I'm honestly not sure which is first and which is second.

I wondered how Arch Hall Jr. got the part as the 'dreamy' boyfriend and discovered that his dad, Arch Hall Sr. co-wrote the film with Bob Wehling, directed it (using the name Nicholas Merriweather) and provided backing for the movie. Daddy also co-starred as Mr. Miller under the name William Watters.

One of the stupidest things in a stupid movie: Eegah is what they assume his name is because "that's what he says most of the time." How many people repeat their own names over and over again? "Eegah" probably means something like "idiot". He just keeps saying, "Idiot, don't you know anything? Idiot! Idiot!"

This ep has arguably my favorite invention exchange - installing a radiator into Frank! Forrester's reactions are priceless! Rates up there with powering Deep 13 through Frank's heart ("I'd love to help you but I can't power the defibrilator!")

"Vitamins are good, they say, and so's a gallery..."

This is seriously one of the most baffling lines I've ever heard in any song, which leads me to believe that they cut a verse about vitamins. And going by the rhyme scheme he's got going, it must have been something like this:

"If I had...
...to plan my diet...
...'round a deadly...
allergy...
I'd split...
...my vitamin supplements...
...and share...
...with Valerie."

What else rhymes with Valerie?

This is my absolute favorite episode of the entire series. The movie is just the right flavor of awful, the music is, in reality, very fun and appropriate for the tone of the film, and each main character has his/her own memorable scenes and qualities. It's my favorite MST3K line-up as well, and brought me my favorite riffs from the series as well. Let's enjoy, won't you? Thank me.

At 15:23, was that added by accident in post production? Why the hell did they dub in someone yelling "Watch out for snakes!" I played it over and over and couldn't stop laughing! I think a microphone was hot in the studio, and someone saw a cobra go by!

Excellent off-movie skits. right up to the end, with little reference to the movie itself- I've seen too much of this tragic reality called mst3k repeatedly; and now, in its repeatitude, I begin to enjoy the parts of the show itself which are the parts of the show itself.

This was the first Joel episode I ever saw. I became a MSTie a mere month before the end of the series and could only watch the Sci-Fi era episodes, and this was the first VHS tape I found. Oh,the days before people like you guys got them on the internet :) I wore that old tape out!

Ugh I had a sinking suspicion that there was some biblical inspiration to this. As a result its fair to consider this film as an argument against the existence of an omnipotent, loving god. Its a good argument.

I love the flowers in Tom Servo's head while he's affected by the airplane glue. Surprised the clear globe head wasn't used more often. And yes this movie is way underrated. [BTW I recommend The Sadist if you want to see Arch Hall Jr in a non singing yet still scary role.]

Probably my favorite MST ep. The movie is idiosyncratic and weird but still watchable, the riffing is at least decent, but the host segments are stellar. Particularly the first one. It somehow feels like this is the distilled thesis of the Joel era, and why I love the Joel era so much.

This is the movie with the line, "Watch out for snakes." Servo repeats it throughout the film, and it is repeated throughout the series, and has also been used in Rifftrax.
