Recap: Mystery Science Theater 3000 S 08 E 18 Devil Doll

Film watched: Devil Doll

The MST3K treatment provides examples of:

  • And Now For Something Completely Different: Servo sits through the last portion of the movie in the form of a delicious apple Toaster Strudel.
  • Becoming the Mask: "DEBBIIIIIIEEEEEE!"
  • Big "WHAT?!": Crow tries to make a deal with Pitch for a devil dolls and later soul transference. In the end, he also dresses a sleeping Mike up like Hugo and constructs a cage around him, while he acts like Vorelli. When Mike questions these acts and tries to stop him, Crow has this reaction.
  • Comically Missing the Point:
    Mike: Crow! How could you make a deal with the Devil?!
    Crow: At prices like these, how could I not?
  • Crowd Chant: As the audience applauds at the conclusion of Vorelli's show and the performers take a final bow.
    Mike and the 'bots: Hugo! Hugo! Hugo! BUTT LADY! BUTT LADY! BUTT LADY!
  • Deal with the Devil: Pitch returns to offer Crow the power of soul transference. After Mike talks him out of a deal for literal dolls.
  • Fan Nickname: There is no Magda. Only "Butt Lady".
  • Hypocritical Humor:
    Crow: Puppets. Hate 'em.
  • Insistent Terminology: Pitch reminds Mike that he is a devil, not the Devil.
  • Oh, Crap: During Hugo's attack on Vorelli, Mike remembers that he once gave his niece a devil doll.
  • Paranoia Fuel: In-Universe:
    Crow: (as Hugo threatens Vorelli with a knife) Look familiar, Mike?
    Servo: It may. Soon.
    Mike: (chuckles nervously)
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: Servo's Toaster Strudel form.
  • Running Gag: Magda's partially exposed rear comes up every time she appears on screen after that portion of her outfit (or lack of?) is revealed.
  • Shout-Out: Pitch is ''a'' devil, not ''the'' Devil.
