''The Magical Voyage of Sinbad''
Among other things, the [=MST3k=] crew lampshaded the fact that the allegedly Middle Eastern (in the English dub) characters all looked suspiciously European:

-->'''Servo:''' You know, guys, this doesn't seem like Persia, and that's probably not even Sinbad!\\
'''Joel:''' Does anyone see anything even ''remotely'' Arabian? ...I never knew Arabia was so Russian!\\
'''Crow:''' Well, maybe this was a Finnish movie called ''The Magic Voyage Of Torval''!

(In the [[RunningGag various host segments]], everyone takes a turn being the one to point out "He's ''not'' Sinbad!", [[TheCassandra only to be ignored by everyone else]].)

!!The Segments:

[[folder: Prologue ]]

* It's the third annual [=SOLtie=] Awards, and the Golden Bone is being presented for "Best Performance By a Red Gumball Machine-Looking Robot in a Funny Situation."


[[folder: Segment 1/Invention Exchange ]]

* The Mads present Chinderwear, for those men who have a chin butt. Joel, meanwhile, demonstrates the Rat Pack Chess Set. If you thought chess was complicated, just wait until ''this'' version's rules are discussed.


[[folder: Segment 2 ]]

* Joel and the 'Bots galavant about as the jesters in the movie do. It's a very demanding task!


[[folder: Segment 3 ]]

* Now they're dressed as the bearded Finns and hold a city council meeting. Could they get some more water, please?


[[folder: Segment 4 ]]

* Crow goes on a lifelong quest using some personal thrusters, but things immediately go south, forcing Joel to direct him back into the ship.


[[folder: Segment 5 ]]

* Joel introduces Tom and Crow to the Channel Cat from the movie. They're creeped out. Dr. Forrester introduces Frank to Fisty the fist. He's ''knocked'' out.

!!The [=MST3k=] treatment provides examples of:

* AwardSnub: Invoked: "Best performance by a red, gumball-machine-looking robot in a funny situation". And the award goes to... Crow.
-->'''Servo:''' ''(outraged)'' I'm telling you what this is! This is [[Music/FearOfABlackPlanet fear of a short, red planet!]]
* BadBadActing: Trace does an awesome impression of an award presenter awkwardly reading jokes from a teleprompter in the opening sketch. If you look carefully, you can even see Crow's lips slightly moving while Gypsy is talking, like he doesn't want either of them to to miss their cues. He also moves his eyes from side to side, as if reading from a teleprompter.
* BareHandedPuppetry: Dr. Forrester puts a pair of googly eyes on his hand to make Fisty the Fist.
* BiTheWay: "Now Harpo's after the guys!"
* CallBack: Film/MrBNatural practice. You probably don't want to know.
** [[Film/{{Tormented}} Tom Stewart killed me!]]
* ComplexityAddiction: Crow thinks the Channel Cat is a Creator/JimHenson-esque complex animatronic at first, instead of just... a HandPuppet. Meanwhile, Servo thinks it's a digital projection.
* EvilLaugh: Parodied when the Mads introduce the movie
--> '''Dr. Forrester:''' We whipped it together specifically to cause pain... and we did it ''our'' way!
--> <''Forrester and Frank spend several seconds laughing maniacally before Frank finally gasps for air''>
--> '''Frank:''' I don't get it.
* IfYouDieICallYourStuff: "If you're gonna die out there in the cold void of space, can I have that Toblerone you've been hiding under your bed?"
* MyFriendsAndZoidberg
* NightmareFuel: InUniverse, the [[HandPuppet Channel Cat]] to Tom and Crow. [[ Witness the nightmare.]]
** The laughing horse is this for everybody.
* PleaseWakeUp: When Joel puts the Channel Cat puppet down, the bots think it's dead - Gypsy sadly tries to nudge it back to life.
* TheQuest: Crow, inspired by the film, goes off on one of these. He doesn't get very far.
* RunningGag:
** Every time Neptune slams his trident into the ground, Joel and the bots act as if he stabbed himself in the foot.
** "That's not Sinbad!"
* StagingAnIntervention: TheBigGuy proves his strength by wrestling a bear. The SOL crew's dialogue turns it into the bear staging an intervention for [[Series/TheLifeAndTimesOfGrizzlyAdams Dan Haggerty]].
* ThemedStockBoardGame: Joel's invention this time is the "Creator/RatPack Chess Set", with a talking Creator/FrankSinatra figurine and Mitch Miller as the opposing kings, and several house rules...
-->'''Crow:''' Well, Creator/DeanMartin can only stagger sideways across the board. Creator/SammyDavisJr can move in a variety of different ways, because he's ''so'' versatile; hey, let's face it, the man was the consummate entertainer.\\
'''Joel:''' What about, uh, Joey Bishop?\\
'''Servo:''' He moves however Frank says, baby!
* UncannyValley:[[invoked]] Averted by the HandPuppet Channel Cat. Even when Joel takes it off, Gypsy and the 'bots think it's sleeping (or dead).
-->'''Joel:''' ''(providing the voice for Channel Cat)'' Hello, [=CrooOOOOOooOOOooow!=]
-->'''Crow:''' ''(terrified)'' It knows my name!
* WhyAreYouLookingAtMeLikeThat: Invoked. When it's decided the only way to appease Neptune is if one of the crew sacrifices himself:
-->'''Servo:''' (as Sinbad) "Why's everyone looking at me?"
