!!The Segments:
[[AC:Prologue]]
* Tom and Crow have constructed a fort out of cardboard, and Joel isn't allowed inside.

[[AC:Segment 1/Invention Exchange]]
* Dr. Forrester presents a plant which reviews music; it has a bit of an attitude if you disagree with it. Joel's invention is a Magic Slate-style tattoo which lets you fix any regrets you might have about the person named inside the heart.

[[AC:Segment 2]]
* The reporter in the film was incredibly insensitive to Glen's fiancée about his condition, so Joel asks the 'Bots for ways to fix that. They don't really cooperate. It leaks over to Joel's own condition.

[[AC:Segment 3]]
* Joel takes a turn as the Amazing Colossal Man while Crow and Tom study him. Once again, they don't really cooperate.

[[AC:Segment 4]]
* While trying to think of actual thoughtful questions to ask Glen, the ship ''runs into'' him. Thankfully, his heart condition halts his angry retaliation.

[[AC:Segment 5]]
* Joel and the 'Bots muse over what they would do if they were giants. They try to abide by a fan letter's request to extend the show, but it only adds about four seconds. Dr. Forrester sticks Frank with a giant needle when he likewise drifts into imagining life as a giant.

* OverlyLongGag: The guys bizarrely make the exact same joke three times in a row, regarding make-up being tested on rabbits. Though Crow's rabbit voice on the last one saves it a bit.

This episode was one of the first to be released on home video by Rhino in 1996. Its release was shot down by the film's copyright holder Susan Hart. It had no legal re-release since.

* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: One of the infamous [[http://www.hobbytalk.com/bbs1/showthread.php?t=89935 "Susan Hart Four"]], referring to films currently owned by the widow of James H. Nicholson, who, for some reason, is unwilling to license the films in any format. As a result, this episode is unlikely to get a release anytime soon. It originally got a VHS release back in 1996, but was pulled almost immediately when the Nicholson Estate complained. It is now a collector's item.
** What makes Susan Hart unique from the other copyright holders Creator/ShoutFactory has had trouble dealing with is the sheer ''lengths'' she goes to ensure absolutely ''no one'' uses her films in any way. Not only has she adamantly refused to let Shout! Factory publish the episodes featuring them, but she has in the past hired professional lawyers and ''private investigators'' to infiltrate sci-fi conventions across the country to make sure none of them use any of her films. There are at least four cases of her attempting to sue major television program companies (such as A&E and Discovery) simply because they used ''trailers'' of her films.
* PropRecycling: The stand that Plant Guy stands on is the [[Recap/MysteryScienceTheater3000S02E11FirstSpaceshipOnVenus same one that held the Mad's junk drawer]].
