Prologue: The Mads are out of bad movies, and must choose between sending the Satellite of Love either Star Wars or Jaws. At the last minute, though, Dr. Erhardt finds another Gamera film. Crow: "With all my parts, I could've made an excellent vacuum-cleaner. Instead, it's the movies that suck!"
Segment One: Crow gets conked in the head and dreams that he controls the experiment while the Mads are trapped in space! He sends them A Planet of the Apes Christmas again and again and again...
Segment Three: Joel tells the Bots about his dreams. "Sometimes I dream I'm a crane operator. Other times I'm standing in line for Metallica tickets..."
- This was the first show of 1989.
- For the first time ever, Joel & the Bots did not listen to any viewer calls.
- Surprisingly, A Planet of the Apes Christmas is not a real movie.
- In case you were thrown by the "rugged good looks," the "stupid young inexperienced bumbling senator from Indiana" who gains access to the White House appears to be Dan Quayle, elected Vice President a couple of months before the episode aired.
- The idea of the mads being the ones trapped aboard the Satellite watching bad movies would later be used in Last of the Wild Horses.
