Film watched: ''The Stranger'' aka ''Film/StrandedInSpace''

!!The Segments:
* Joel has turned Tom and Crow into his own personal at-home shooting gallery. He also discusses the show's premise.

[[AC:Segment 1/Invention Exchange]]
* Both sides offer similar inventions riffing on the classic BangFlagGun -- Joel with a "Kaboom!" Uzzi, "Sloink!" knife and "Kachow!" dynamite, and Dr. Forrester with a "Slunk!" harpoon gun, "Klunk!"/"Whssh!" nunchuks and "Boingee Banga Ka Bonga!" TNT plunger.

[[AC:Segment 2]]
* Crow and Tom argue about their Toppers TV trading cards. Joel derails the conversation with his "Kids in Court" set.

[[AC:Segment 3]]
* Crow had a nightmare and comes to cookie-baking Tom for comfort. They discuss their ideas about Ward E.

[[AC:Segment 4]]
* Joel is an evil executive who orders Tom and Crow to take care of the problems threatening his criminal empire. His use of euphemisms confuses his henchmen. Evil laughter galore.

[[AC:Segment 5]]
* Tom is the head executive at a TV studio, and Joel and Crow need to pitch the film to him as a pilot for a series. It fails miserably, but they read a letter, which itself has series potential, at least. Dr. Forrester tries to promote Frank, but he won't be swayed from his second banana status.

!!The ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' presentation contains examples of:

* BaitAndSwitchCredits: The [=MST3K=] version, like ''PodPeople'' before it, has credits with scenes from [[Film/PrisonersOfTheLostUniverse a completely unrelated movie]]. The closing credits were similarly redressed. The real opening credits take place with our hero's ship in space as a background, while the proper closing credits come up over a freezeframe of Stryker on the beach where he winds up at the end of the movie.
** HilariousInHindsight: Podcast/RiffTrax would riff ''Film/PrisonersOfTheLostUniverse'' many years later.
* BlandNameProduct: Joel gives a name to the not-a-Plymouth Bettina is driving:
-->'''Joel:''' Careful with the Plymouth -- I mean, the Starduster -- I mean the Terranova One!
* CallBack: The turtle Joel is carrying in one host segment is named [[Recap/MysteryScienceTheater3000S03E02Gamera Tibby]].
* GenreSavvy: Crow, when watching the opening credits featuring footage from ''Film/PrisonersOfTheLostUniverse'':
-->'''Crow:''' Hey, you know, I don't think we should get wrapped up in these credits, I'm sure they have ''nothing'' to do with the movie.\\
''(when credits end and the actual movie footage begins)''\\
'''Crow:''' Now, see, what did ''that'' have to do with the movie?\\
'''Servo:''' Nothing.
* OddNameOut:
-->'''Servo:''' Next week, on ''Series/{{Mannix}}''!\\
'''Crow:''' Last week, on ''Series/{{Cannon}}''!\\
'''Joel:''' Coming soon, on ''Series/HecRamsey''!\\
'''Servo:''' Previously, on ''Series/{{Baretta}}''!\\
'''Joel:''' Tonight, a VerySpecialEpisode of ''Series/TJHooker''!\\
'''Crow:''' This week, on ''Series/MasterpieceTheatre''...\\
'''Servo:''' This--\\
'''Joel and Servo:''' ''Huh??''
* ShoutOut: During the movie's opening credits:
-->''(an earthquake occurs, causing Dr. Hatmann from ''Film/PrisonersOfTheLostUniverse'' to lose his balance and fall into the teleporter)''\\
'''Joel:''' [[Film/TheWizardOfOz I can't stop it, I don't know how it works! Goodbye folks!]]\\
''(Servo mimics a crowd yelling "Goodbye!")''
** Right after the credits:
--->'''Joel:''' ''(as Stryker)'' You know, I just had the craziest dream. AndYouWereThere, and you, Tim...
** Due to the choppy framerate and pixelated look of the ''Prisoners of the Lost Universe'' footage in the movie's opening credits, Servo comments that they're seeing it through the eyes of Yul Brynner in ''Film/{{Westworld}}''.
** The riffs on the music in the movie's replaced closing credits:
-->'''Servo:''' Music by Music/{{Kraftwerk}}.\\
'''Joel:''' It sounds more like ''Franchise/{{Super Mario|Bros}}'' music to me.
* WrittenSoundEffect: Joel and the Mads' Invention Exchanges are variations of the "bang" flag gun, with each side trying to [[EscalatingWar one-up the other]], and the onomatopoeia becoming increasingly [[UnsoundEffect Don Martin]]-esque (which is [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] [[HypocriticalHumor hypocritically]] by the Mads).
-->'''Joel and the Bots''' ''(in unison)'': "Boingee Banga Ka Bonga"?
