Films watched: ''Alphabet Antics'' (short) and ''Film/DaddyO''

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

!!The Segments:
[[AC:Prologue]]
* Joel and the 'Bots hang out at the office water cooler, shooting the breeze and checking out the new girl (read: Gypsy).

[[AC:Segment 1/Invention Exchange]]
* Joel has the air freshener mobile, which entertains babies while covering up typical baby smells. The Mads, still dealing with the giant baby from ''Film/TimeOfTheApes'', invented the Alien Teething Nook, an ''Film/{{Alien}}''-themed pacifier.

[[AC:Segment 2]]
* Joel sings the Pants-Up Song, inspired by Dick Contino's high, high pants.

[[AC:Segment 3]]
* The 'Bots take a stab at drag-racing; Joel plays any number of victims of their antics.

[[AC:Segment 4]]
* While demonstrating spit takes, Bruce the gym guy crashes into the ship. They really don't want to talk to him.

[[AC:Segment 5]]
* Joel needs to practice the apple-slapping scene. A first-grader and some integration test engineers have written fan letters. The Mads have their own fruit-slapping moment until the giant baby plays with the button, delaying the end credits thanks to strained carrots getting stuck in the keyboard.

!!The ''[=MST3K=]'' episode has examples of:
* AudioErotica: Joel and the 'Bots get rather smitten with Magic Voice when she announces the first commercial sign.
* ContinuityNod: The Miracle Growth Baby from [[Film/TimeOfTheApes the previous episode]] returns, resulting in a baby-centric Invention Exchange.
* CreditsGag: At first, the Mads can't get the credits to run for more than a few seconds.
* HaveAGayOldTime: The ''Alphabet Antics'' short includes "Q is for the queer, queer pelican." Joel and the 'bots let it pass without comment, although Crow makes a quick side glance.
** They were too busy commenting that the film had ripped off Creator/OgdenNash.
*** Though the poem they were referencing was actually written by Dixon Lanier Merritt.
* INeedToGoIronMyDog: Frank has to go get a piece of water. Not accepted by Dr. Forrester.
* {{Nepotism}}: Joked with Crow's "You see it doesn't matter how slow I go, I'll catch him; my son's the editor!" when Chillis kills Sonny by running him off the road despite the latter having a big head start.
* NotableOriginalMusic: Joel and 'bots doing a parody of ''Rock Rock Candy Baby!'', ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q69tyPdLp5U Hike Up Your Pants!]]"
* RunningGag: Let it be known throughout the lands that the BigBad'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.
** Phil's pants and the fact they're practically pulled up to his armpits (which inspires one of the greatest songs of the Joel Era).
* SpitTake: Joel demonstrates different types of spit-takes in one of the skits.
* UnusualEuphemism: Joel's list of alternative names for the baby's poopie.
-->'''Crow''': ... "nimbus"?
-->'''Tom''': ... "chechure"?
-->'''Joel''' (to Crow): Nimbus.
-->''([[{{Beat}} awkward silence]])''
-->'''Tom''': ... ''the hell's '''chechure'''?''
