Recap: Mystery Science Theater 3000 S 02 E 06 Ring Of Terror
Films watched: The Phantom Creeps (Film Serial) Chapter 3 and Ring of Terror

The MST3K treatment provides examples of:

  • Accentuate the Negative: "The only good thing about the movie was that it was really short!"
  • Autopsy Snack Time: Parodied. During one of the host segments, Joel munches an apple while dissecting a vacuum cleaner.
  • And Now For Something Completely Different: This is the only episode of the whole series to have the movie first and the short last.
    • It's also the only episode to begin with movie sign immediately after the theme song, though it's a prank by Tom and Crow.
    • Tom Servo is still sporting his "haircut" which he first got in the previous episode. This is the last episode which would feature this design.
  • Call Back: "Lewis Charles Moffett, feared not", as heard in Master Ninja and other episodes.
  • Getting Crap Past the Radar: The following exchange.
    Tiny: Well I almost made it to 36 inches. See?
    Crow: Good. Now, about your waist.
  • Running Gag: How the people on campus look older than college-aged, which Joel and the bots take to ridiculous extremes, painting them more as senior citizens.
    • Saying something about a tuffet every time Mr. Moffitt's name is said.
  • Your Princess Is in Another Castle: Joel and the 'bots rejoice over the shortness of the movie, only for the mads to drop a short film on them.
    Joel & Bots: Nooooooooonononono!
    Dr. F: But first — a commercial.
    Joel & Bots: Nooooooooonononono!

"Weird?! Yeah, I guess that is the word for it... weird."
