@ 56:30 Mike asks the question...Couldn't they just put IBID (?) up on the screen please? What does that mean? Please forgive me, I might not have gotten the spelling correctly.

I thought that they should have given well known and awarded make up artist Rick Baker some credit. I and 1,000's of other artists fallow his work.

great satire, or whatever, basically ripping how the MST3K movie was A) too short, B) was basically controlled by the studio, and so on...

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!

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.

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.

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?

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!
