Segment 1/Invention Exchange
The Mads have taken the classic hobby horse toy and given it a motorcycle look, releasing the result as the Hobby Hog. Joel, meanwhile, has placed pizza on various interconnected platforms a`la the 3D chess from Star Trek: The Original Series.
The bikers from the film are surprisingly well-spoken, and Joel has a reason for that. It involves the Algonquin Round Table.
It's Wild Rebels Cereal! The great new breakfast treat! Pour your milk from an oilcan for best results.
Joel wants to cheer Gypsy up and sings a song for her. Tom and Crow jump him at the end.
The 'Bots are depressed by the movie, so Joel teaches them how to spin it into a positive experience. Even Frank gets swayed by their way of thinking. A devoted scientist fan wrote them a letter and proposed a battle between a cell and Tom.
The Mystery Science Theater 3000 presentation has examples of:
Out-of-Character Moment: This is one of the few, if only, episodes to showcase what Gypsy would act like if she wasn't using the vast majority of her energy on maintaining the functions on the SOL. She is a lot more articulate and intelligent. Of course, her brief moment like this is kept short, because when she's not running the ship, Joel can't breathe.
Running Gag (in future experiments): "That square bugs me... he really bugs meee!!!" and "You and your friends are the only creeps in this place!"
