"Hike Your Pants Up" is a song sung by Joel Robinson (and a bit by TV's Frank) during Experiment #307 in reference to the lead of the film Daddy-O.


[On The Satellite of Love]

Joel Robinson: Hey everybody, do the pants up song!

Dad 'n Lad, Farrahs, Levis, Bugle Boys
Sans-a-Belt, Chinos, Haggar, Ban-Rol,
Arnold Palmer, Wrangler, Johnny Carson, Huskies
No pants are higher than mine.

Hah! Oh! Look out! Don't touch this!

Hike up your britches
Super high now
Cut off the circulation
To your thighs now
Yank your trousers
Higher than Corey Haim's
'Cause it ain't hip
'Til you're in total pain

Hike up your pants
Till you see your shins
Wear an Izod shirt
like a second skin
Make sure you wear your
Belt buckle to the side
Hike up your pants
Take your butt cheeks for a ride

Hike, Hike, Hike, up your Chinos
Hike, Hike, Hike, up your Farrahs
Hike, Hike, Hike, up your Haggars
Hike up your britches like mine....

Take it Frank!

[In Deep 13]

Hike, Hike, Hike, Hike your pants up
Hike, Hike, Hike...with the thing, and, uh...
Hike, Hike, Hike...with the football...
Hike, Hike...

TV's Frank: Take it, Doctor!
Dr. Clayton Forrester: I'm not taking anything, Frank! Here, I'll take these. [Pulls pants over Frank's head, Frank keeps "hiking" through fly.] And you! Pants Weasel! Get on with it! Zip it, Frank.

[On the SOL]

Hike, Hike, Hike, up your Ban-Rols
Hike, Hike, Hike, up your Roebucks
Hike, Hike, Hike, up your Toughskins
Hike up your britches like mine! Hah!
Hike up your britches like mine! Hah!
Hike up your britches like mine! Hah! Oh yeah, look out!
Hike up my britches like mine! Jump back, kiss myself!

Tom Servo: Uh, Joel, take the commercial sign. Joel!

Hike up your britches like mine! Hah!...

Joel Robinson: I can't come back--I don't know how it works!
Crow T. Robot: Joel! Joel! Commercial sign! Snap out of it, buddy!
Tom Servo: Oh no! He's vapor locked! Hit the button, Crow! Hit the button!
Crow T. Robot: I'll get it! Ungh!
