YMMV: Mystery Science Theater 3000 S 08 E 13 Jack Frost

The MST3K episode contains examples of:

  • Bizarro Episode: Subverted. At the beginning of the episode, Mike convinces Brain Guy to switch places with him and it appears that the latter may join the bots in riffing the movie, like what Pearl did in Quest of the Delta Knights. However, Brain Guy quickly comes to his senses and sends Mike back onto the satellite just as the film begins.
  • Crowning Moment of Funny: The opening host segment:
    Crow: Ladies and...Gypsy! Micheal Nelson IS...LORD OF THE DANCE!
    Gypsy: Oh!...did the other one die?
    Crow: I dunno...
    • Tom's "translation" of the song:
      It's colder than a bucket of penguin poop,
      It's colder than a polar bear's butt.
      The dogs are sticking to the fire hydrants...
      • At the end of the song, Father Frost says, "Bye-bye!" Tom dutifully translates, "That means, 'Bye-bye'!"
    • They get a lot of mileage out of Baba Yaga's chicken leg house. While faithful to the legend, it's still pretty goofy.
    • Upon seeing a roast pig on the table, Tom cries out, "Babe!"
