The Mystery Science Theater 3000 presentation contains these tropes:
- Getting Crap Past the Radar: Crow makes the following remark during the "human polar bear" part of the short.Crow: Let's talk about shrinkage, shall we?
Narrator: Fast becoming one of the most popular winter sports is shiing (skiing). And "shiing" is the proper pronunciation, they tell us.Joel: Yeah, well you're full of skit.
- Also from Snow Thrills:
- Keep Circulating the Tapes: Number two of the infamous "Susan Hart Four". The un-riffed version of the film hasn't even seen a release in several years.
- Padding: The song about celebrity siblings with shared last names. Joel persuades the 'bots to go along with it because the movie was relatively short and they needed to fit the episode's running time.
- Running Gag: The host and his robots poke a lot of fun at Peter Graves' closing speech...in the span of the episode ending.
