So are all these mountains hollow, or are we gonna have to guess which one"

The movie

Main article: The Beast of Hollow Mountain (film)

In Mexico, an American cowboy investigates the recent disappearance of cattle from a nearby village while at the same time dealing with the village's various residents. Near the very end of the movie, the titular beast, which turns out to be a large dinosaur, appears to terrorize the village.

The episode

Host segments

Prologue: Jonah and the Bots have Painting Day. Jonah is awed by Crow's artwork.

Segment One: Jonah continues to praise Crow's artistic aptitude. In the Invention Exchange, Jonah unveils the Disco Cannon to bring the disco anywhere, while Kinga demonstrates how the Titanic could have avoided sinking if it had a hot water cannon for melting icebergs. It also provides a laugh as a thirsty Max tries to drink from the hose and scalds his mouth (twice).

Segment Two: After talking to Jonah about constructing his spacesuit, Crow and Tom express their wish that movies focus more on the monsters. Tom's idea for a monster movie involves an artistic idea of a monster on the road. Crow's is a comedy-focused film, all voiced by Eddie Murphy called "Bro-zilla". When Tom reveals that his monster would kill himself at the end of his movie, it brings down the mood considerably and Jonah begs for a Movie Sign.

Segment Three: Jonah and the Bots hold a Mexican-themed fashion show. Kinga and Max are mostly impressed, though not with Jonah.

Segment Four: Crow and Tom starts dancing around in outfits inspired by the celebration. Their refusal to speak dismays Jonah and the Mads. After Movie Sign, Jonah asks the Bots what they were doing, but they claim that it wasn't them.

Segment Five: Jonah and the Bots re-imagine movies with dinosaurs in them.

Stinger: The dinosaur rips the stick out of the leading lady's hands and breaks it.

Goofs

  • During the final host segment in which Jonah and the 'Bots speculate about how other movies would be better if they included dinosaurs, Jonah postulates an alternate ending to the film Chinatown in which Jack Nicholson says "Forget about it, Jake. It's Dinosaurtown". In Chinatown, that iconic line is said TO Jack Nicholson's character (Jake Gittes), not by him. He also refers to the performers Jack Nicholson and Faye Dunaway by their real names, but refers to Noah Cross (played by John Huston) by his character name.
