Watching the Tupperware host segment, and I'm thinking, "Boy, I could really go for one of those sandwiches there." Then I realize that they're over 20 years old. Probably not a good idea to eat 'em.

You can see a seam open where the theater seat cutout didn't get moved right all the way all through the movie, I wonder if they just didn't catch it in post.

To finally answer that vexing question about Creepy Girl's ethnicity, Ulla Strömstedt (1939-1986) was Swedish. Who'da thunk it?

So why is everyone awestruck by creepy girl? I love the Servo riffs but i'm talking about the guys in the film. She is nice looking but so is EVERY other girl in the movie! and to disrespect the four girls who are with you to loudly ogle a fifth seems just.... too lame for words.

OK, I don't get it. They found 100+ beautiful girls for this film but couldn't find ONE good looking man to play the part of Charlie who is supposed to be such a chick magnet? Instead, they cast a goofy, pink, puffy-eyed Creepy Guy with a missing tooth and plastic Ken hair in the role...sheesh.

I was looking up the Carol Conners song in the movie ('The Book of Love') and found this excerpt from a surfing movie book (which I afterwards bought). They talked to the cinematographer on the film and, low and behold, he did three other MST3K films as well! Anyways ... I kind of like this movie, especially the way it looks, so give the portion a read:

This ep is classic, and it's such a tragedy that it was pretty much a "lost episode" for most of MST's life on CC. Plus Creepy Girl is one of the best MST songs and one of the most all-around adorable host segments.

I tell you I could have taken anything this movie had: the mind numbing plot, pratfall mania, the suicide-inducing Vaudeville act of Mr. Duval and Lawrence, the unwatchable lip syncing by the unlistenable band, even Lyle Waggoner walking around the beach in street shoes! I could have taken it all with a smile on my face and song on my lips for just ONE of those angry pouty jealous looks my way by Charlie’s super boss sister Tina! She is Cat-Cat-Catalina Craaazy Gone Man!

Another missed Star Trek opportunity in this one. Just as they didn't notice that JC in Sidehackers was Korax from The Trouble With Tribbles, Tad in this movie (Dan Duryea's son) was Lt. Jose Tyler, the Navigator from the first Star Trek pilot. On the other hand, even if they had noticed it, no real character was developed for him in Trek that could have been riffed on.

So, my friend hired me recently to sing a love song to his girlfriend. I know, awkward situation, but my friend (the guy with a girlfriend) really has no singing voice whatsoever. He didn't specify a song, just said it had to be romantic, and that a bit of silliness is always nice. What song did I pick? That's right, I sang Creepy Girl to her. Keep in mind, they are both very good friends of mine. But... I sang it in front of both their families. I'm afraid that this song has set up a Romeo and Juliet style conflict between their families..... For the record, she loved it.
