Recap: Mystery Science Theater 3000 S 01 E 07 Robot Monster
Films watched: Radar Men From The Moon (Chapters 4 and 5) and Robot Monster

This MST3K episode contains examples of:

  • Action Figure Speech: The Ro-Men, looking for all the world like a guy in a gorilla suit wearing a space helmet flailed around wildly while speaking.
  • Creator Backlash: Josh Weinstein did not like the idea of "Robot Monster" being riffed because the film was too well-known, and the film is already ridiculous on its own, that riffing doesn't add much. Nonetheless, this is still a Season 1 favorite amongst fans.
  • Sanity Slippage: The bizarre, rambling eulogies Joel and the Bots compose for Ro-Man after the film even disturb the Mads with just how far gone they really are.
  • Stealth Pun
  • Your Head Asplode: When Joel tells the 'bots about how bumblebees shouldn't be able to fly yet they do anyway, Servo's head explodes, and so does Crow's. It even causes Cambot to malfunction.
