I don't think I ever expressed to you guys how special this episode is to me. I've seen this episode countless times with my family. Well, I've seen many of the episodes countless times with my family, but this one in particular. It was our favorite. We quote this one all the time together and we've been doing this for over a decade now.

I wondered if canned Canadian bacon is a real thing, so I started searching. This is the nearest I could find (without spending too much time on such a search): http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0039LDMV6?pc_redir=1405276082&robot_redir=1
Not sure if this is what caused Bobo's hockey hair, but it would definitely cause nausea and indigestion, at the very least.

Canned bacon. Blech.

There's been some bad movie music in the various experiments, but this one has to be close to being the worst of all. Either the guy couldn't be bothered.. or just couldn't figure out he had other keyboards he could play rather than the one his mom got him for Christmas.

It seems to me that the worst movies are often the ones in which the antagonists lose for no good reason. This one has a triple whammy of inexplicable defeats. Sartorus defeats the drunken-man-protagonist, starts walking confidently toward the feeble-child-protagonist, and then just falls down and dies. Riveting, in it's own right, but then the idol also falls over for no reason, and apparently shatters, revealing a lost city that seemed to have no significance to the story. But wait, there's still a veritable army of henchmen to account for before the story can be considered resolved. So what to do with them? Have them take off their masks and walk off the movie as if the buzzer had just sounded at the end of a hockey game.

"My trained army of rats." "I made you a trail mix out of rat droppings and hair."

Who also holds the title of Tavern and Breast Inspector.

ok so someone help me out here lol... how did the cult know he found the map? Seven years had passed since Larry Csonka was shot and only Mrs. Costanza knew he had went up and got into his dad things. He did call information to try to contact Dr. Teeth though... was the operator with the cult? Also where was Mrs. Costanza when the cult broke in and why wasn't Troy worried about her safety at all during the movie?

Tom Servo the Mounty's Canada song alone...the last two verses of it, anyway...make this movie worth watching. And the old hermit is similar...VERY, spookily, similar...to the Canadian comedian, Red Green. I mean, it's weird. It IS one of the best episodes, in my opinion. And the fact that the kid looks strikingly like one of those annoy Ferringi guys off Star Trek 433,893 doesn't hurt the humor at all.

Finally watched this one based on the number of recommendations here. I have agreed with most of the top 10 picks here but I just can't see the appeal of this one. Watched it with my teens and, while there were some good laughs, it was nowhere near that of "Mitchell" or "Space Mutiny" and so on.

I like looking through these comments periodically and seeing new additions to the list of characters who sound like Mike Pipper:


  • Doctor Teeth (a muppet)

  • Rowlf the Dog (also a muppet)

  • Red Green (not a muppet, probably)

  • Yosemite Sam

Interesting that his one is currently tied for the most laughs with 120, even higher than Manos. I love it myself but would not have guessed it was that popular, I think maybe the goofy but still somewhat self important charm of the movie helps. There are other episodes where the riffs are as good but the movies are just too dark to be as much fun.
