* ActorAllusion: Lots of them, if an actor is most famous for another role, like [[Series/GilligansIsland Alan Hale or Russell Johnson]]. And every time Creator/PeterGraves shows up, you can expect a [[IncrediblyLamePun host]] of ''Biography'' jokes, and at least one ''Mission: Impossible'' reference.

** Ever wonder why Joel always sounds kind of dazed and lethargic? It's because the first episode was filmed after Joel Hodgeson had gone four days without sleeping, having been running about making sure that filming would go off without a hitch.

The result was basically his spaced-out persona from his stage act turned UpToEleven.

** Mike and the crew attempted to secure the rights to the infamous Creator/JohnTravolta and Creator/LilyTomlin 1978 "romance" ''Creator/MomentByMoment'' but had said rights "[[http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/discussion/2007/08/22/DI2007082201850.html yanked from [them] at the last minute]]". Other films that had their rights pulled at the last minute included the ElvisPresley western ''Charro!'' and the Creator/LeonardNimoy PilotMovie ''Baffled!'', about a race car driver who turns psychic OccultDetective after a car crash.

** On the "Movie Sign With the Mads" Podcast, Frank Conniff revealed that, sometime between season 2 and 6, the crew had considered doing an episode on the failed ComicBook/DoctorStrange PilotMovie, and apparently got well into the writing process for it before they were told that they couldn't use it due to rights issues.

** Sci-Fi Channel (during Seasons 8-9) demanded that the show could only feature sci-fi, horror, or fantasy related movies, though the staff tended to find rather loose definitions of the concept in order to create variety. It wasn't until Season 10 that they were allowed to do drama films again (''Film/TheGirlInGoldBoots'', ''Film/FinalJustice'')...though in this case it was because the show was essentially going to get cancelled anyway and nobody at the network cared anymore.

** Once in a while, you can catch a glimpse of someone's mouth moving in the theater (this is most prominent with Crow) but no one says anything.[[note]]This is occasionally because the audio has been shifted in order to have better syncing; see the credits to ''Werewolf''.[[/note]] It's likely that they're saying jokes that were cut or perhaps censored. One such example can be found in their riff of ''[[Recap/MysteryScienceTheater3000S04E24ManosTheHandsOfFate Manos: The Hands of Fate]]'':

* MilestoneCelebration: The Turkey Day marathons held for much of the Comedy Central years were, in essence, this, since the show premiered on Thanksgiving. Shout Factory!, the show's home-video distributor, revived the tradition with the help of {{Reddit}}, YouTube, and Joel Hodgson himself to promote the 25th anniversary DVD set.

* AscendedFanon: The fans dubbed the apes' lab from ''Revenge of the Creature'' to ''The Deadly Mantis'' "Deep Ape" since it was the first Mads base after Deep 13. While its only on-screen name was "the lab", Best Brains refers to it as "Deep Ape" anyway.

Added DiffLines:

* OutOfOrder: A common practice in the Sci-Fi era was to air a season's episodes seemingly at random, which wouldn't have made much impact in the old days -- if not for the fact that they also kept demanding the show contain story arcs. The crew at Best Brains was eventually left so frustrated that they had to tag "Previously On..." bumpers on the broadcast versions just to keep things coherent.
