Segment 2

Segment 3

  • Mike tries to play Trivial Pursuit: William Sylvester Edition with Crow and Servo, but they don't care.

Segment 4

  • The Nanites set up a circus with live animals, carnival games and acrobats (and Nate the Clown). Mike drops some quarters, which wreaks havoc on the circus (and Nate the Clown).

Segment 5

  • Crow and Servo are in hot water with the mob over their planned line of Gorgo erotic calendars when they can't find a single woman in today's film. Mike points out two; one in Nara Island, another during Mama Gorgo's rampage. Pearl and Maltin are shocked as the film seemingly had no serious effect on Mike or the 'Bots. For a worse film, Maltin suggests one with Mickey Rourke, and teams up with Pearl for future experiments.
