!!The Segments:
[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder: Prologue ]]

* Gypsy begs Joel to let her join them in the theater. Tom and Crow are against the idea but eventually relent.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Segment 1/Invention Exchange ]]

* Frank created the Lawn Baby, a baby seat attached to the top of a lawn mower, on his own, and it shows, with baby Melvin nearly getting hurt. To get early musical child development going, Joel created the Womb-Mate, headphones a pregnant woman places around her belly.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Segment 2 ]]

* The 'Bots wonder if good-natured brawling like the film describes actually exists. A good-natured brawl results, with the Mads crowing that Joel has finally cracked.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Segment 3 ]]

* Crow has some interesting facts to present about Hercules and his son Hymus that he's honestly reading from his book and totally not making up at all.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Segment 4 ]]

* Crow and Tom created the talking Hercules action figure -- tellingly, its one phrase is, "I'm so sleepy, I can barely keep my eyes open."

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Segment 5 ]]

* Joel hosts a funeral for the final ''Hercules'' movie, followed by a lively party. Frank is torn to shreds by his invention, but at least baby Melvin is still safe.

!!The ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' presentation contains examples of:
* ActuallyPrettyFunny: Gypsy gets in ''one'' moderately amusing riff during her brief time in the theater.
-->'''Gypsy:''' Hey, get this - they're steam cleaning the horses!
* CannotTellAJoke: Gypsy in the theater.
-->'''Crow:''' C'mon Gypsy, let's have it!\\
'''Gypsy:''' Uhh, okay. Um... ''(sees Leon Selznick's credit)'' Look at that dumb name. That's so stupid!\\
'''Crow:''' Oh, brother...
* IHaveToGoIronMyDog: Gypsy, after having her fill of ''Captive Women'' (About five minutes).
** Supposedly based on how her actor, Jim Mallon, would usually be one of the first writers to leave during the first screening of a movie.
* IncrediblyLamePun: Quite a few, and they start early.
-->''A map of Greece is displayed, a Series/{{Bonanza}} joke is made''\\
'''Servo:''' If that map burns there will be a Greece fire!\\
''(Joel and Crow laugh)''\\
'''Crow:''' Good one!
* ItIsPronouncedTroPAY: Joel, bless his heart, absolutely butchers the pronunciation of the famous ''Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey'' song, "[[Music/AlsoSprachZarathustra Thus Spake Zarathustra]]" (as "Zatharatu"). Could also be a ShoutOut, as the way he says it kinda-sorta rhymes with "Film/{{Nosferatu}}".
* LostFoodGrievance: Joel and the bots improvise a skit where the sailors on Hercules's ship get into an argument over a missing dinner roll and fruit cup.
* SarcasmBlind:
-->'''Servo:''' (pretending to read the hieroglyphs in the opening credits) One time, this [[GiantEnemyCrab big lobster]] came and attacked a lady, but Series/MisterEd saved her.\\
'''Gypsy:''' Really?\\
'''Joel:''' I think he's kidding, Gypsy.
* SomethingCompletelyDifferent: Gypsy joins Joel, Tom, and Crow for the first few minutes of the movie.
* ThisIsGonnaSuck: During the opening scene, Crow sees a man get up from his seat and approach a battering ram a group of men are carrying, and hopes it's not Hercules. The man proves he is Hercules by [[EstablishingCharacterMoment pushing down the battering ram effortlessly]], driving Crow into despair.
* UranusIsShowing: Several of the riffs come from this, particularly the "blood of Uranus" line.
