The Days of Our Years
Another Union Pacific short, this time a preacher talking about avoiding work accidents and providing three examples to ram home his message like a blowtorch to the eyeballs. As Mike points out, the main causes of workplace accidents are, apparently, joy, sex, and old age.
- Interesting to note that all three accidents are were all the fault of the workers, not due to machinery or management.
- This short was included on Shorts Vol 2, released by Rhino Entertainment on VHS in October 1999, and on DVD as part of The Mystery Science Theater 3000 Collection: Volume 3, a 4-DVD set with The Sidehackers, The Unearthly and The Atomic Brain.
Paul Krenner (James Griffith), an ex-major with delusions of grandeur, forces scientist Peter Ulof (Ivan Triesault) to develop a radiation-based technique to turn men invisible, with which process he plans to create an invisible army to sell to the highest bidder. He busts safecracker Joey Faust (Kennedy) out of prison and forces him to undergo the invisibility treatment so he can steal more radium to further the experimentation. Plans go awry when Faust discovers there is a side effect to the invisibility treatments he didn't count on. 
Segment One: Crow gets mounted among the other insects of Servo's collection. Deep 13 has been transformed into Auntie McFrank’s Tangleberry Inn, a colorful bed and breakfast. After being served a meal of cold lo mein, Mike and the Bots provide some "local color" for the guests by presenting a llama. Don't you give no matches to Mikey!
Segment Two: Based on the tragic short, Crow learns the hard way about "gentle pressure".
Segment Five: Mike and the Bots try to answer the film’s dilemma of either having an invisible army or blowing up a county in Texas. They read an amazing transparent letter. Back in Deep 13, it's teatime, though Frank still mourns for Squanto.
