YMMV / Mystery Science Theater 3000 S 03 E 01 Cave Dwellers

  • Crowning Moment of Funny
    • "What do you want from us? We're evil! EVIL!"
    • Tom's speculation on how Ator built the hang glider, starting off with quasi-plausible Bamboo Technology before giving up and talking about how hang gliders are actually made.
  • Cult Classic: Mostly for the MST3K version.
  • Growing the Beard: Generally considered to be the best episode to show newcomers to the concept of MST3K and riffing on movies.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: During the Invention Exchange, Dr. Forrester quips that Frank won't be singing "The Man In My Little Girl's Life". Fast forward well nigh onto a quarter century, and the new Mads for Season 11 are the daughter of Dr. Forrester and the son of TV's Frank.
  • Ho Yay: For the MST3K Amazing Colossal Episode Guide, Mike Nelson penned an...interesting tribute to Miles O'Keefe. An excerpt:
    I watch the way they fall
    upon the valleys
    by the bulges
    hair? golden
    eyes? stars (oh, Elysium!)
