- Main article: Radar Men from the Moon
Cody and Ted attempt to steal an atomic ray gun from the Moon Men.
- Main article: The Mad Monster (film)
A disgraced scientist uses a wolf blood serum on his mentally-challenged gardener, turning him into a wolf man. The scientist then dispatches the wolf man to kill the men who denounced him as a charlatan.
Segment Two: Tom flirts with Joel's blender.
Segment Three: Joel answers the Bots' questions about the wolf man.
Segment Four: Joel switches Crow's and Servo's heads to near-disastrous consequences.
Ending Segment: Joel tries to offer RAM Chips to the Bots to say good things about the movie; when they don't, he threatens to give them to Gypsy, claiming that she was created as a peripheral character so that they would have someone else outside of the movies. As the discussion devolves into existentialism, the Mads are angry at their ignorance that a mad scientist died at the end of the movie.
