The Mystery Science Theater 3000 presentation contains these tropes:

The Young Man's Fancy short contains these tropes:

  • Ambiguously Gay: Bob, which would explain why he is so insistent on Judy not dating Alex.
  • Big Stupid Doodoo Head::
    Judy: You're nothing but... a stinker.
    Crow: (as Bob in monotone) No. Don't.
  • Brought To You By The Nerd Council. And a generous grant from the Mom Corporation.
  • Full-Name Basis
    Alexander Phipps: The name is Alex.
    Tom Servo: ...zander Phipps.
  • Getting Crap Past the Radar: "Double-bag it, son!"
    • Also growing mushrooms in the basement.
      Crow: And avoiding the narcs!
  • Likes Older Women: The crew portray Alex as flirting with Judy's mother.
    Crow: (as Judy's mother) Please, Alex, I'm vulnerable.
  • Loveable Sex Maniac: Judy.
    Servo: (as Judy) Tee hee, I'm horny!
  • Never Heard That One Before
    Alexander: Hey, what's a four-letter word for "nuisance"?
    Crow: Standard sitcom joke landing on runway 7.
    [Mike imitates plane landing sound while waving imaginary marshalling wands, while Servo makes airplane noises.]
    Bob: Oh, that's easy: J-U-D-Y.
    [The gang approves of a successful landing.]
  • Wounded Gazelle Gambit: Judy's plan to get Alex's attention by pretending to be helpless in the kitchen gets lampshaded in the riffing.
    Judy: (exaggeratedly stirring an empty mixing bowl and sighing) Oh, dear...
    Servo: (ahem...) OH, DEAR!!!
    Judy: Oh, me...
    Servo: Did I call that?
