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.
* [[HeroicBSOD BSOD]]: Frank experiences one of these, after being PutOnABus.
* InMemoriam: In place of TheStinger, there is a dedication to Music/FrankZappa, who was also a fan of ''[=MST3K=]'' and had apparently expressed interest in [[WhatCouldHaveBeen collaborating with Best Brains]] shortly before his death.
* 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.)
* 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..."]]
