** Doubles as a ShoutOut to jazz vibraphonist Milt Jackson, whose nickname was "Bags."



* ShoutOut: Among many others, the old man in brown rags is compared to the hermit from ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus''.

Among many others, the old man in brown rags is compared to the hermit from ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus''.''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus''.
** The quip about Gamera being nicknamed "Bags" is a reference to jazz vibraphonist Milt Jackson, who had that nickname first.
** They quote from "Once in a Lifetime" by Music/TalkingHeads at several points--after all, much of the movie takes place "at the bottom of the ocean!"

!!The Comedy Central Segments:
[[AC:Prologue]]
* Joel converted Tom into a root beer kegger, so it's time to ''party''!

[[AC:Segment 1/Invention Exchange]]
* The Mads present Film/TheThreeStooges Gun to help recreate choreography from their films. Joel has turned Crow into rows of shish kebabs.

[[AC:Segment 2]]
* Joel wants to know how Gamera works, so the 'Bots created a helpful interactive and labelled model. Just don't ask what's behind the door inside of him.

[[AC:Segment 3]]
* Joel has the 'Bots create dioramas of their favorite ''Gamera'' moments. Tom created Baragon, Crow made Gaos, Gypsy's is incredibly abstract, and Joel himself modeled the SOL as a big loving family. Awww.

[[AC:Segment 4]]
* Gamera has flown up to the SOL, and Kenny and Helen from the movie are riding on his back. A very awkward (and poorly dubbed) conversation follows.

[[AC:Segment 5]]
* Each member of the SOL crew performs their own take on the Gamera Song. Deep 13 follows suit before Dr. F smashes his guitar on the button.

* DancePartyEnding: Something like that. In tribute to their final ''Gamera'' film, the crew each sing different versions of their already-existing version ("Gamera is really neat, Gamera is filled with meat, we are eating Gamera!") of the ''Gamera'' theme, ending with everyone singing a surprisingly affectionate send-off... and Clay and Frank promptly one-up them by doing it in hard rock.

!!The KTMA version provides examples of:
* CastingGag: Servo mocks the way one character laughs by comparing it to Dr. Erhardt's laugh. Erhardt and Servo were both played by Josh Weinstein.
* ContinuityNod: Crow has finally thawed out from the previous episodes where he was frozen to be the SOL's Christmas tree.
* HeWhoMustNotBeSeen: Dr. Forrester and Dr. Erhardt could be seen during the show's opening theme song and occasionally as a still within the show, but they did not appear in person within the show itself until this episode [[AvertedTrope averted]] this.
* RunningGag: Whenever Joel or Crow compares Zigra's ship to a gumball machine, Servo will immediately try to throw in something to make the comparison seem like a good thing.
* StockFootage: ''Very Incredible Movie Theater 4'' is actually footage from J Elvis' [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v5oDf9rq5ZY&t=19m23s standup]] that was aired on the same night, but here as a {{Ruritania}}n comic.
