Recap: Mystery Science Theater 3000 S 04 E 06 Attack Of The Giant Leeches
Films watched: Undersea Kingdom and Attack of the Giant Leeches

This episode contains examples of:

  • Actor Allusion: Intentional or not, when Ray "Crash" Corrigan starts swinging on ropes the guys accompany it with ape noises. Corrigan was most famous as an Ape-suit performer.
  • Hormone-Addled Teenager/Emo Teen: Joel's invention turns Servo into one.
  • Must Have Caffeine: Tom Servo even has coffee inside his gumball-head.
  • Real Dreams Are Weirder: One sketch has the characters describing their dreams, which are all realistically nonsensical.
  • You Won't Feel a Thing:
    Dr. Forrester: Now this leech [snip] when applied to the neck or head area, will suck any desire to smoke out of Frank.
    Frank: [loudly protests]
    Dr. Forrester: But this won't hurt a bit.
    • The leech, of course, turns into a Brick Joke at the end. Frank didn't do so well.
