No wonder Judy can't have a child, Ted keeps her "Spotting Trains".
The part where the cameraman has the fake "melting man" hands, rollerskating after the nurse is priceless....

It's been since the 90's since I seen this old stop motion animation short from Kablam called Action League Now, but I can incorporate this movie into it like this...
Action League NOW! Starring the Flesh! He's super strong and super naked. Thindergirl! She flies like thunder. Stinky Diver! A former navy commando with an attitude as bad as his odor. And the Incredible Melting Man! With the power to...mmm....melt! XD

I can't believe I still remember that today.

They had it all wrong Steve had a Halloween costume on , he was going as a Gummy Bear . On the bright side Ted doesn't have to worry about his high maintenance, neurotic, wife anymore.

Ooh! Ooh! Ooh! Apparently this movie was originally intended to be a satire of horror films, but it was decided at some point to go for a straight horror movie. Also, the special effects with the melting man went on to go inspire the make-up and special effects for the guy in the original Robocop who got those hazardous chemicals spilled on him.

So...Myron Healy (otherwise known as Mark Houston on The Unearthly and General Perry in this movie) seems to have been the quintessential guest star on TV. He has 312 acting credits on IMDB and, except for two series where he was a main character, they're all one-off appearances. Actually, for a few series, he has multiple appearances but as different characters each time.

I still think it's funny that the director of our city recreations commission is named nothing other than..,,,,....Ted Nelson!!!!! I think he faked his death, and came to live underground here, knowing no one would remember this stink bomb. Little did he know that a wonderful thing called MST3K would find it. Dr. Ted Nelson, you have been discovered! Come out, and we will give you crackers!

So, I'm wondering something about the end credits riffs. Is it possible that it's a callback to the end of Gamera vs. Barugon, where the guy sits with the girl and says, "I've learned never to let greed guide our actions." ...or am I just seeing a callback where none exists?

This may be my favorite MST episode. It's certainly a blast. Who would have thought that someone would try to remake Monster-a-Go-Go?

With this slightly less awful remake as an inspiration, perhaps I should tackle my project to remake the three Coleman Francis movies we all know and love...flag on the moon...I'm Cherokee Jack...Panic!

Now just hear me out on this: new sitcom, “I’m Ted Nelson!” Dr. Nelson and bland wife Judy are living in quiet 70’s desperation when they find out gruff old General Perry is coming to live with them! Throw in Judy’s swinging mother dropping by, unmarried Sheriff Blake bird dogging the babes, and wacky neighbor Steve, aka The Incredible Melting Man (his gimmick: he comes over and drips on people at inappropriate times). Put it all together and the comedy hijinks will sure to ensue!
