40 minutes of of how to defeat Barugon with a diamond and a rainbow, and none of it works. Now that is what I call BOLD padding! And if that wasn't enough, Gamera steps in and finishes it up with 2 minutes of rolling around on the ground. That takes some serious courage to put out such a flimsy plot! I'm just overwhelmed with awe for the creators of this movie.

Thinking about tongues sitting in the bottom of your mouth. Nope no no no uh uh no nuh nuh no no. Put a tourniquet around his neck. I'll shoot myself to prove we're friendly. etc

Gonna be that guy--the book is by "Baragon" P. Kelly, who is a separate monster from the "Barugon" in this film. Baragon was a staple of Toho and had recurring appearances in Godzilla films. Alas, Baragon had an Eagles-esque relationship with cocaine that sidelined him after the 1960s, and it was he who led Godzilla down the dark path of drinking and womanizing that caused an unexpected career hiatus in 1975. While Godzilla was able to get the help that he needed and return to work in 1984, Baragon continued in a self-destructive spiral leading to a mescaline-fueled confrontation with the police in 1991 that landed him in Lompoc for five years.

Shame and timely intervention by Mothra and Jet Jaguar after his release helped Baragon realize that he indeed did have a problem, and Baragon embarked on a twelve-step program in 1998 that culminated in a trip to Jerusalem where he found God and crushed tanks. Fueled by his newfound sobriety, he found his way back into the spotlight one last time with Godzilla in 2002 before heading into retirement.

The scene starting at 11:36 is the single funniest minute in MST3K history. The riffs about the music being played are flawless. And if you are old enough to catch the call back to "The Courtship of Eddie's Father", just icing on the cake! Live on in reruns, Mr. Bill Bixby!!

Is this movie ACTUALLY the last time Crow uses the 'By this time, my lungs were aching for air!' pun? Or is that ignored for later series episodes?

The people who wrote these movies really must not have cared at all. The solution is luring Barugon into water with a five inch wide diamond hanging from a helicopter because water paralyzes him and he'll drown. Sigh.

Did they just forget that the cumber-bubble-bun was Joel's invention in 107? I know they rerused most of the KTMA ones, but I think the only other time they reused an invention was Hellcats, where the crew was having flashbacks.

With the heated arguments on which operating system and hardware is better, Joel invented the internet activity known as trolling. Back then is innocent enough, today it evolved into something more darker. No joke, any net troll we run into may really be ether a fat crazy guy who never leaves the house or a teenager/man or woman child with some mental pain we hope will grow out of despair and stop being bitter picking fights with people over the internet.
Trixie: "You used to be one...HELL of a troll."
The last time I seriously trolled was almost a few months ago, the little angry brat deserved it. dA is full of hormonal teenage users overly obsessed with their favorite cartoon.
Trixie: "I used to like that site. But ever since its all about Adventure Time or this Stephen Universe crap, not anymore. They don't tell me I'm pretty anymore."
So you loose popularity. It happens.
Trixie: "Tell me I'm pretty! Tell me damn it!"
Gosh you're pretty. That's the hundredth time I told you this morning. Sheesh.

"Gamera is like a lemon drop, high above the chimney tops!" That is indeed what happens when you go over the rainbow, and as the capper to the Skittles and Starburst jokes, it's perfect.

They did away with my favorite riff from the season 0 version. "Looks like a chicken pot pie..." Gamera lands. You get a few seconds to digest the joke. You see the flames around the landing site flare up. "Mmm! Turtle pot pie!!" (Works even better because it sounds almost like turkey.) You need the setup and response. Doesn't work half as well with only one.

Another one of those rare invention exchanges that became a real product. Anyone remember the "dancing Coke can"? Fad product that came out not too long after this episode (sometime in the mid-90s). I've still got mine. I wonder if someone at Coke was watching this episode...

I used to play warhammer and other table top strategy/war games. so the Fighting men and Monsters host segment is comedy genius to me. The first time i saw it i laughed so hard i couldn't breath. Taking the time to set up a battle map that size and detailed for a single skit proves their devotion to their art, and Toms rapid fire delivery of insanity takes it over the top! Also judging by the still pics they showed it looks like they had a lot of fun destroying it to.

Im a little late to the game but there was a post on here about Tom saying "a little nip in the air" and that it was racist? i didnt immediatly go there since to me it just means it was cold because barugon froze everything. You like "its a wee bit nippy out side" Am i missing something am i unknowing making a racial slur? hmm...

Where is the main character, key-sue-kay or however you spell it, getting his clean suits from? One minute he's wearing a ragged shirt on an island then he's got a pressed three piece suit on. Even admitting the fact of movie-hood it makes no sense.

What the hell is happening at 48:54-49:00? What's being implied? I can only think of rape but that would make no sense. He kills two people, panics, and runs from the scene, rushes a group of people out of a car (I think?) and then rapes a girl in the front scene? Not to mention, he does this all within like ten seconds?

This is the only Sandy Frank monster epic that I'd find watchable even without the riffs. Yeah, I did kind of get drawn into the Jim Thompson-esque subplot with the double-crossing thieves. The total lack of annoying, shrill-voiced, know-it-all children in little pants? Also a big plus.
