Recap: Mystery Science Theater 3000 S 03 E 07 Daddy O
Films watched: Alphabet Antics (short) and Daddy-O

An overly-saccharine short on the letters of the alphabet segues into an actually not-too-bad film, all things considered.

The MST3K episode has examples of:

  • Continuity Nod: The Miracle Growth Baby from the previous episode returns, resulting in a baby-centric Invention Exchange.
  • Credits Gag: At first, the Mads can't get the credits to run for more than a few seconds.
  • Have a Gay Old Time: The Alphabet Antics short includes "Q is for the queer, queer pelican." Joel and the 'bots let it pass without comment.
    • They were too busy commenting that the film had ripped off Ogden Nash.
  • Notable Original Music: Joel and 'bots doing a parody of Rock Rock Candy Baby!, ''Hike Up Your Pants!"
  • Running Gag: Let it be known throughout the lands that the Big Bad's defining character trait is love of BUTTER! Also, as was used in many other MSTK'd films, the sight of a character running for a phone booth prompts the cast to riff: "I gotta call my agent, and get me outta this film!"
    • All the fruit-slapping in the final segment.
  • Spit Take: Joel demonstrates different types of spit-takes in one of the skits.
  • Unusual Euphemism: Joel's list of alternative names for the baby's poopie.
    Crow: ... "nimbus"?
    Tom: ... "chechure"?
    Joel (to Crow): Nimbus.
    Tom: ... the hell's chechure?

"Couldn't help ya if I wanted to, fella. Gym policy."
