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. Forrester.
    • Lampshaded in the Poopie tape, with Trace popping his head into the shot, with the double.
  • Lyrical Dissonance: When the characters visit a strip club, Servo adds lyrics to the background music:
    Servo: (in Louie Armstrong-esque voice) Jesus loves me, this I know / For the Bible tells me so!
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: Dr. Forrester during the first segment where Crow escapes the Satellite of Love - with Mike's help - and attempts to find a way to break out Mike and Servo. Crow merely running into him is enough to send him crying in panic back to the SOL.
  • Off-Model: The collapsible version of Crow, who's folded into a torpedo for Umbilicus infiltration, doesn't have moving eyes, giving him an Uncanny Valley stare.
  • 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!
  • Take That!:
    Stratton: "On second thought, it wasn't funny at all."
    Crow: "Oh, Adam Sandler."
  • Visual Pun: 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.)
