Film watched: ''Film/GameraVsZigra''

This is one of the nine Sandy Frank Japanese films originally used for a KTMA episode that was riffed again a few years later on ComedyCentral.
!!The KTMA version provides examples of:
* CastingGag: Servo mocks the way one character laughs by comparing it to Dr. Erhardt's laugh. Erhardt and Servo were both played by Josh Weinstein.
* ContinuityNod: Crow has finally thawed out from the previous episodes where he was frozen to be the SOL's Christmas tree.
* HeWhoMustNotBeSeen: Dr. Forrester and Dr. Erhardt could be seen during the show's opening theme song and occasionally as a still within the show, but they did not appear in person within the show itself until this episode [[AvertedTrope averted]] this.
* RunningGag: Whenever Joel or Crow compares Zigra's ship to a gumball machine, Servo will immediately try to throw in something to make the comparison seem like a good thing.
* StockFootage: ''Very Incredible Movie Theater 4'' is actually footage from J Elvis' [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v5oDf9rq5ZY&t=19m23s standup]] that was aired on the same night, but here as a {{Ruritania}}n comic.

!!The season three version provides examples of:

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: [[invoked]] The crew are amused by Gamera's xylophone skills.
-->'''Joel:''' Gamera, known as "Bags" to his friends...
* DancePartyEnding: Something like that. In tribute to their final ''Gamera'' film, the crew each sing different versions of their already-existing version ("Gamera is really neat, Gamera is filled with meat, we are eating Gamera!") of the ''Gamera'' theme, ending with everyone singing a surprisingly affectionate send-off... and Clay and Frank promptly one-up them by doing it in hard rock.
* InterspeciesRomance: Gamera is Helen's boyfriend during a host segment.
* InTheStyleOf: At the end of ''Gamera vs. Zigra'', the SOL crew perform reggae, jazz, and hip-hop versions of the song.
* RunningGag: The constant referral of traffic accidents as a major contributor to society's ills.
* ShoutOut: Among many others, the old man in brown rags is compared to the hermit from ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus''.
* TakeThat: Many against Sandy Frank.
-->'''Doctor''':The brainwaves are not those of a normal human being, the activity seems to be reduced!\\
'''Crow''': Oh, [[ANaziByAnyOtherName David Duke]]'s brainwaves.
* WildTeenParty: The SOL crew throw one at the beginning of the episode because this is the last ''Gamera'' movie they have to watch. [[TheVoice Magic Voice]] inexplicably gets [[DrunkOnMilk drunk on root beer]].
