* Mike claims that he's turning into a spider monster. Crow and Servo don't believe him, though they do commend but it's okay as Mike on his awesome spider claw.just wants to make a braunschweiger melt with them. Pearl calls from a truck stop as she's in the middle of moving Castle Forrester back to the mountains. As it turns out, the suburbs won't let her throw her trash out the window and she doesn't like that.


!!The Segments:
[[AC:Prologue]]
* Crow is running an opinion column in the newspaper. His column is a little lacking in actual opinions, but Servo doesn't seem to mind.

[[AC:Segment 1]]
* Pearl is annoyed that she has to pay $50 a year for Bobo's ape license, so she's moved Castle Forrester out to the suburbs where it only costs $10. Brain Guy questions the financial benefit since it cost her millions of dollars just to move the castle in the first place.

[[AC:Segment 2]]
* Somehow, Mike has ended up in a giant spider web that has been weaved on the SOL bridge.

[[AC:Segment 3]]
* Mike imitates Gary from the movie and has the Mads audition for a spot on Broadway.

[[AC:Segment 4]]
* The crew wonders if crashing on a desert island causes one to become languid, helpless, and sex-starved (and to also murmur a lot). They decide to test the theory by crashing the SOL.

[[AC:Segment 5]]
* Mike claims that he's turning into a spider monster. Crow and Servo don't believe him, though they do commend Mike on his awesome spider claw. Pearl calls from a truck stop as she's in the middle of moving Castle Forrester back to the mountains. As it turns out, the suburbs won't let her throw her trash out the window and she doesn't like that.



* RichInDollarsPoorInSense: Pearl spent several million dollars to move the castle in order to save $50 a year on Bobo's ape license. And then had to move it back because she couldn't be bothered to leave her trash out on the curb like a normal person.

* CallBack: When Mike and the bots are joking about the scientist being caught in a web "in the midst of a cheerleading routine", Crow mentions "[[Film/TheGiantSpiderInvasion MRxL]]."

* IronicEcho: Mike and the bots tend to dramatically proclaim '''"THE HORRORS OF SPIDER ISLAND!"'''--shifting the emphasis between ''horrors'' and ''spider'' -- whenever the movie ratchets up the {{Fanservice}}.
** This is actually a CallBack (''way'' back) to ''[[Recap/MysteryScienceTheater3000S04E24ManosTheHandsOfFate Manos: The Hands of Fate]]'', where Joel and the Bots spent the first half of the movie doing the same dramatic title drops whenever nothing was happening onscreen (which, again, was pretty much the first half of the movie... And maybe a good deal of the second half, too).

{{Fanservice}}. Likely inspired by the ominous way the title is read out in the movie itself during its own title card (and, as it happens, many times in the trailer).
