The Episode

Host Segments

Prologue: Joel and Servo unfreeze Crow, and Servo greets him with his NEW DYNAMIC MIGHTY VOICE! Crow isn't pleased at having been frozen.

Segment One: Joel & the Bots receive their first transmission from the Mads. "Is it true what they say about space?" they sneer; "No one can hear you laugh?" They invite Joel back to Earth for an underwater experiment, but Joel politely declines. (This scene is included on the MST3K Scrapbook tape)

Segment Two: Joel is depressed, despite the fact that Gypsy loves him. Cambot plays some messages from callers to cheer him up, and they do, a little. Gypsy is surprised that many of the calls are about her. The last call goes too far, however.

Segment Three: Joel & the Bots make their New Year's resolutions. Crow: "I just want world peace, and my own apartment." They count down the last ten seconds of 1988 before movie sign intervenes.

Segment Four: J&TB review the movie. Servo: "I laughed. I cried. I cried a LOT." Joel talks about next week's film, Gamera vs. Guiron.[1]

Notes

  • This is the first time the Mads appear during the show as speaking characters.
  • It has falsely been reported that the countdown to 1989 that is performed during the third host segment was real and that because this episode aired on New Year's Eve it was believed that midnight came at around that time. This is NOT true, however, since Joel starts that segment by saying there is a time-delay between the Satellite of Love and Earth. Also, in the previous episode, Tom Servo announces KTMA TV23's schedule for New Years' Eve, featuring MST3K starting at midnight.
