Film watched: ''Film/VillageOfTheGiants''

!!The Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 presentation contains these tropes:

* ActorAllusion: [[invoked]] Plenty of references to Lloyd Bridges here. There are also plenty of [[Series/TheAndyGriffithShow Opie]] and ''Film/{{Willow}}'' jokes at Ron Howard's expense.
-->'''Crow:''' [[RunningGag I liked]] ''Willow''!
* CallBack:
** While the giant teenagers are dancing:
-->'''Crow:''' "Why wasn't [[Film/TheAmazingColossalMan Glenn Manning]] this much fun?"
** [[Film/ManosTheHandsOfFate Torgo]] briefly takes over Frank's job in Deep 13.
* DualMeaningChorus: While "The Greatest Frank of All" is ostensibly meant to refer to ''TV's'' Frank, the end shows it was also meant as a loving tribute to Frank Zappa (see Trivia), who had passed away a month before this episode aired.
* EvenTheDogIsAshamed: The movie uses the "bashful" type of this, with pet dog Wolf putting a paw over his face as Nancy and Mike make out. Crow, taking a different interpretation, almost quotes the trope verbatim:
-->"Even the ''dog'' is grossed out!"
* FridgeLogic: Invoked: When the giants shrink back down to normal size, Mike and the bots wonder why they didn't explode from all the urine in their giant bodies.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar:
-->'''Crow:''' "That's not ''mud!''"
* [[HeroicBSOD BSOD]]: Frank experiences one of these, after being PutOnABus.
* InherentlyFunnyWords: Mike gets Crow to giggle a couple times by mocking Genius's funny-sounding chemical compounds, which mostly use "P" sounds.
* MickeyMousing: The "Haunting Torgo Theme" gets sped up when Dr. F helps Torgo get to his seat to interview for Frank's job.
-->'''Dr. F.:''' First rule: No theme music.\\
'''Torgo:''' ''What'' theme music? (walks away, Haunting Torgo Theme plays.)
* {{Mondegreen}}: Invoked; when one of the women kisses a guy, she says "Please?", but it ends up sounding more like "Bees?" Mike runs with it: "Bees, yes."
* NoodleIncident: Frank tricks Torgo into doing something to Dr. Forrester offscreen. We never know what it is but it's enough to get Forrester to throw Torgo out on his ear immediately.
* NotableOriginalMusic: "The Greatest Frank of All"
* PetTheDog: Mike and the Bots are super nice to Frank after he gets fired. They get ready to send him a card and even give him a job interview for a position on the SOL (although they really just do this so he doesn't commit fraud while trying to apply for unemployment benefits.)
* PutOnABus: We'll miss you, TV's Frank.
** TheBusCameBack: At least in this same episode. Seeing that he was replaced by Torgo of all people, it was hard not to see this coming.
* RunningGag: "I ''like'' ''Film/{{Willow}}''!"
** Mike and the bots replying, "WHAT?!" to the hard-to-hear police officer.
** "Jim Begg."

[[InMemoriam "Please, don't go." "Goodbye, Frank, you were enjoyed." (singing) "Let me be frank about Frank..."]]
