Recap: Mystery Science Theater 3000 S 06 E 15 Kitten With A Whip
Film watched: Kitten With a Whip
The Mystery Science Theater 3000 presentation contains these tropes:
- Berserk Button: "You turned off Doodles Weaver!"
- Fake Shemp: Used for when Crow gets into Deep 13 and meets Dr. Forester.
- Lampshaded in the Poopie tape, with Trace popping his head into the shot, with the double.
- Incredibly Lame Pun: Of the Visual Pun variety: Kevin Murphy is a literal Kitten with a Whip. (He reappears later during the special Thanksgiving episode of Night of the Blood Beast, and has a lot more funny things to do.)
- Running Gag, Call Back: The Kitten with a Whip becomes an anthropomorphic costume, which makes a reappearance in the Turkey Day segments of Night of the Blood Beast.
Servo: Look at camera, pay no attention, stay bland, must stay bland!
- Also, every time they name "Cathy" was mentioned, one of the guys would say "she just tried on a bathing suit and went 'ACK!'"
- The main character's stoic attitude quickly gets labelled as blandness.note
- "Weird Al" Effect:Seen in action during the riffing.
