@1:10:08 That is in fact Frank (Andre the Giant and Michael Caine's baby) from Danger! Death Ray. His name is Nello Pazzafini and the character he plays here is named Gunk.

Just watched this last night, and I can't help wondering... just who the hell was responsible for casting the parts in this turkey? Who was responsible for picking out the guy to play "Colossus"? F'cripesake, just look at the guy -- he's not any taller than any other character, he doesn't even have a cool beard, and they expect the audience to think of this guy as a Colossus? This standard-issue gym rat? Are they shittin' us, man? D'ahh ha ha ha ha ha hah.

Of course, mind you, this massive casting FAIL makes this episode even more enjoyable.

So...I'm just thinking about this. The robots are susceptible to mental breakdowns, to being sung to sleep, to being taken over by pods, to becoming poseurs. Mike is resistant to all that, but he succumbs to NMCB. So...what is the difference?

There's something about MST3K and strange, extended dance sequences... Also it seems the tribe could have taken those headhunters any time. Was there any "plot" to discourage that notion?

I wonder if Frank still has Nummy Muffin Cocoa Butter as a pet lol. His head is probably hung over his mantle lol. How apropriate that would be seeing that the movie was Colossus and the "HEAD"hunters lol. Trivia time: ever wonder why the film's called Colossus and the Headhunters and the dude's kept being called mycheesesteak? Simple, it's a case of the left hand not knowing what the right hand was doing. It's an Italian movie originally called macheesteak and the headhunters(named after an italian mythological figure) and when it was put into english for the American viewing public they never changed his name on the script to Colossus(for the American viewer) and the voice-over people never caught it and kept saying mycheesesteak! Sux since they spent alotta money on the main title huh :-)

As much as I'm against the exploitation of women as sex symbols, it is much much MUCH better to see scantily-clad women than men. This movie has exposed me to more man-thighs than I ever needed to see...

~37:20 I think that's Nello Pazzafini, who you might recognize from 'Danger!! Death Ray' (credited Ted Carter) wherein he played "Frank" (I guess?), the bespectacled machine-gunner who steals the eponymous death ray...

The beginning of this movie is actually the end of "Fire Monster Against the Son of Hercules," hence the cavemen turning into ancient Greeks between scenes. Confused the heck out of me the first time I saw it.

I've always loved the way "Colossus" just kind of strolls onto the scene, casually, to save everyone. No reason to lose your cool just because the whole bloody island is sinking in a ball of lava and flame!

To quote Nummy Muffin Coolcol Butter being put in the basket: "Ouch!"
That, the close-up of the sick pooch, Frank's tantrum and the noises Tom adds to the guy blowing on the ram horn during the chicken dance are what made me laugh the most.
