I desperately want to see into that other reality where Robot Mike is the captain or whatever of the S.O.L. I totally imagine Crow and Servo as "those two guys who hang out avoiding doing actual work and providing comic relief".


Mike as a bot, from the wormhole reality

Seriously how much would you pay to own one of these? $200 ? $300 ? Shout factory should team up with McFarlane toys.

I think Mike and the Bots laugh the most during this movie. They keep giggling between their lines and who can blame them? This is easily one of the top ten funniest episodes.

So third segment, Mike and bots in the woods. Was this some sort of movie reference, or just a bizarre gag that the bots, covered with leaves, had grotesquely changed, erm, anatomically?

I just noticed that Pearl actually backs up the van to go into the wormhole. Complete with checking behind her and shifting gears. She's hanging out in space and she feels the need to back up.

I'm with Servo. What's too far when your entrails are spilling out? No, really. What's too far?

"I'm not afraid. If you are, go on home."

I... don't get the problem. That's a perfectly understandable couple of sentences.

That's the theme to the 1970s Bob Newhart Show at 12:47; it's a reference to the shot of the apartment building, similar to one in the opening credits of the Newhart show.

This ep is on my favorites list. I've seen it a zillion times. Yet today is the first time I realized that when we first meet Krankor, he addresses the "people of Earth" and tells them he "will arrive tomorrow night at precisely eight o'clock." But he never specifies WHERE on the entire planet he will go. So the people of Tokyo are freaking out with the automatic assumption that he means that is where he'll go because...why? Tokyo is now the only city on Earth? Or are there similar scenes going on all over the planet, of panic and journalists interviewing astronomers, the whole bit--and we're seeing the plight of the planet through Tokyo's POV? The latter is the only option that I like.

I really feel bad for Captain Manicotta. The general guy just keeps asking him what he's saying as he's describing his impending death. It's not supposed to be funny, but it really is.

The Movie Pitch: "So there's this guy who's a shoeshine boy and he's got, lets say, two orphan kids. Now this guy is also a rocket scientist and he's made a flying saucer-like contraption that he can fly around in but nobody knows he has it. Anywho, long story short, these guys invade earth and our Prince of Space guy saves the human race. Whaddya think?"

At around 45:35, when they go back into the theater, with Mike as the little robot, YOU CAN SEE THE SILHOUETTE OF LITTLE MIKEBOT'S HEADSET MIC, even though the sound isn't coming from Mikebot's mouth. Subtle silhouette joke, guys. Nice.

The Phantom comments that Earth is half a million miles away from Krankor. That puts it well within the orbit of Mars which is, at its very closest, 36 million miles away. In fact, it would seem that Krankor is roughly twice as far away as the moon. He doesn't exactly need any special form of rocket fuel to bring an armada over.

This is a crappy movie, but If I was a kid in Japan ten years after the war, I would have loved this. This was probably popular. It's a kid's movie. All kid's movies can be made fun of.

Oh, and just one more thing... even inasmuch as I preferred Invasion Of The Neptune Men over Prince Of Space, I've got to give the Prince one thing: he actually traveled in outer space -- to another planet, even -- as opposed to Space Chief, or, as Crow referred to him, "Lower Atmosphere Chief".

So, yeah... my final verdict on this episode? I like it VERY MUCH!

Well, I'll be dipped. Here's yet another episode I downloaded and watched for the first time in about twelve years, decided I wasn't that crazy about it, threw it onto the backup pile -- and then pulled it out about six months later, watched it again, and realized it was awesome.

Ironically, the two things about the movie that annoyed me the most -- skinny, femmy-looking Prince Of Space in his wussy white outfit, and Phantom Of Krankor's annoying laugh -- are the things I think are funniest about it. I'd also forgotten how great the riffing was in this one, especially the non-verbal riffing: the chicken clucking noises the Crew make every time the alien spacemen appear. I also love the scenes where the aliens go undercover to find the Prince Of Space -- with their secret alien tracking device in the back of a '54 Chevy.

Needless to say, it's now earned a spot in my regular rotation, as part of my "Turning Japanese" playlist, and as an excellent companion piece with Invasion Of The Neptune Men.

The host segments are a gas, too -- where they're suffering the wormhole effects: things happening three seconds ahead of each other, Nelson being turned into a Marionation puppet, and that one segment that they shot on location in real, actual Minnesota woods. Weeeeiiirrrrd.

I love that the Phantom of Krankor so graciously expresses to his captives that he cannot understand a society where intelligent men like them aren't in charge. It really speaks volumes for the kind of enlightened utopia that Earth might have become if the Krankorians had taken over.

So Prince of Space's powers include "immune to all weapons" and "can go anywhere he wants". He's bordering dangerously close to Ruben Bolling's "God-Man" character.

Also, if your alter ego is a bootblack who is raising two orphans, where do you find time to fight crime?
