Film watched: ''Film/GodzillaVsMegalon''

The shot of Godzilla's [[RunningGag awe-inspiring]] tail-slide dropkick to Megalon would be incorporated in the show's opening credits for three seasons (3-5).
----
!!The MST3K version provided examples of:

* CallBack: During the first kidnap attempt, Crow tosses out a [[WomenOfThePrehistoricPlanet "HI-KEEBA!"]]
* CallForward: TheStinger, a replay of the scene where Godzilla jumps into the water, is StockFootage from ''[[EbirahHorrorOfTheDeep Godzilla vs. the Sea Monster]]'', which would be featured in [[Recap/MysteryScienceTheater3000S02E13GodzillaVsTheSeaMonster the very next episode]].[[note]]Joel waving Godzilla on makes the scene even funnier.[[/note]]
* CombatCommentator: Joel and the Bots play this role when Godzilla and Jet Jaguar take on Megalon and Gigan.
* FaceOnAMilkCarton: Tom Servo's makeshift Halloween costume during the invention exchange.
* HeyItsThatGuy: Parodied. "It's OscarWilde!"
* IHaveNoSon: During the Orville Redenbacher commercial sketch, Crow (playing Orville) expresses a desire to disown his grandson (played by Servo) when the latter insults him.
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: This episode was initially released in the Volume 10 set from Rhino home video, but was pulled almost immediately when it turned out they hadn't properly secured the rights. They later released a version that had the Godzilla episode replaced with ''{{The Giant Gila Monster}}'', and made that episode available to those who already had the original set. This version was called "10.2", and featured a reunion video where Dr. Forrester chews out TV's Frank for not properly securing the rights to the "Japanese Giant Lizard Monster Movie" (while instructing those who had the original box set on how to "dispose" of the offending DVD and insert the replacement into the set).
--> '''TV's Frank:''' Hey, it's not my fault, I don't speak Japanese. {{Toho}} said "no-ho", and I thought they meant "yes"!
** YouWannaGetSued: During the reunion movie, everyone conspicuously avoids saying "Godzilla Vs Megalon". Dr. Forrester opts for "Japanese Giant Lizard Monster Movie", while both Frank and Joel just refer to "(mumble) Vs. (unintelligible)".
* RunningGag: The constant cracks about Hiroshi wearing Wayne Newton's jacket.
** Everyone's hate of the laboratory stairs.
* ShoutOut: Joel and the Bots sing the ''Anime/SpeedRacer'' theme during the first chase sequence.
** ShownTheirWork: They quickly switch to the Japanese version.
** "Hey! [[Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey HAL]] is reading your lips!"
** "Look out, [[Film/TheLoveBug Herbie]]!"
* StylisticSuck: The Rex Dart intro in the third/fourth host segment.
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: Apart from the [[OverusedRunningGag awe-inspiring tail-slide dropkick]], parodied during the final fight, with Joel and the Bots serving as a commentary team and treating the fight like a professional wrestling tag match, complete with admonishments for Godzilla using a foreign object (a tree).
--> '''Crow:''' He's got a tree! He's got a tree! That's not the Godzilla we know, [[FaceHeelTurn he's fighting dirty]]!
