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!
  • "Weird Al" Effect:Seen in action during the riffing.
    Mike: (Seeing Ann-Margret's name in the credits) Oh, I thought it was "Ann-Margrock".
