This is the first MST3K
episode to include a stinger
at the end of the episode.
The Mystery Science Theater 3000 presentation includes examples of:
- Expository Hairstyle Change: Tom Servo gets a "haircut" resulting in his dome being replaced with a clear cylinder. The new look only lasts for two episodes.
- Running Gag:
- Doing the eerie One-Woman Wail from 2001: A Space Odyssey whenever a "monolithic" piece of blast barrier at the Soviet missile base is onscreen.
- Trying to place orders at the cafe in Moscow while the floor show is going on.
- Parodying the narrator, especially during long scenes with nothing but Russian dialogue. This culminates in the scene where the Soviet leaders order an attack on New York being narrated as them making Prank Calls.
- Waxing Lyrical: Two examples.
