So... Was Ed Wood an alien? He doesn't seem personally acquainted with any form of human interaction. Its like he had read a book about such things as "teens" and "crime" and "sex" and but never saw any himself for real.

And for once they do allude to the fact that sometimes Mike refers to movies that were watched by Joel. Mike reckons that Gloria's car looks like Jet Jaguar and Crow asks him how he knows that. Obviously not one of the films the bots put Mike through during his training.

It's sort of a shame, Ed Wood actually tries to have a good message about a deplorable (and I don't mean because of the sexual nature), corrupt industry and gets it all staggeringly muddled ("The smut picture racket is worse than kidnapping or dope peddling." "No it isn't!"). Then he goes and makes porn.

But it's not all bad news, as thanks to Mr. Wood's moral confusions and cinematic ineptitude, a hilarious episode of MST3K was born!

I love how Servo says, "I think these scenes are from a completely different movie," during the whole fighting scene that comes out of nowhere and makes no sense, showing they obviously knew Ed Wood took the footage from another movie and placed it in this movie... for some reason. Thanks Wikipedia, but could your descriptions of the movies that MST featured not include elements from the show, like saying that one actor looks elfin in appearance. Try to describe one of these movies in their original form, not as they are in Mystery Science episodes.

Johnny Ride fell far from his police detail in Plan 9.
Notice also one of the cops is the same in both movies, and when Crow cheers "Oh GOODY! This guy!", that's because this guy's not only Gramps from Teenagers from Outer Space, he's the bird-man who eulogized "He tampered in God's domain" in Bride of the Monster. :)

Two things I learned from the short:

1. Boys in the 50s were so horribly disgusting that you had to explain--step-by-step, in graphic detail--the process of bathing and grooming if you wanted ANY chance of making them presentable to the outside world.

2. Girls in the 50s never needed to bathe, as dirt and filth avoided them out of respect for their immaculate purity. HOWEVER, they did need to spend 3 hours before bed performing elaborate hair maintenance rituals, and then 2 hours in the morning selecting the day's outfit. Boys can wear whatever they like, so long as their shoes are shined.
