Film watched: ''Film/GameraVsZigra''
This is one of the nine Sandy Frank Japanese films originally used for a KTMA episode that was riffed again a few years later on ComedyCentral.
!!The season three version provides examples of:
* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: [[invoked]] The crew are amused by Gamera's xylophone skills.
-->'''Joel:''' Gamera, known as "Bags" to his friends...
* InterspeciesRomance: Gamera is Helen's boyfriend during a host segment.
* InTheStyleOf: At the end of ''Gamera vs. Zigra'', the SOL crew perform reggae, jazz, and hip-hop versions of the song.
* RunningGag: The constant referral of traffic accidents as a major contributor to society's ills.
* ShoutOut: Among many others, the old man in brown rags is compared to the hermit from ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus''.
* TakeThat: Many against Sandy Frank.
* WildTeenParty: The SOL crew throw one at the beginning of the episode because this is the last ''Gamera'' movie they have to watch. [[TheVoice Magic Voice]] inexplicably gets [[DrunkOnMilk drunk on root beer]].
!!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.
