The Episode[]

Host Segments[]


Dr. F

Prologue: Mike and Tom prepare Crow for a dangerous mission through the Umbilicus by greasing him up.

Segment One: Crow is sent down the Umbilicus into Deep 13 to try and find the "bring down the Satellite of Love" button. It ends abruptly in failure when he runs into Dr. F, who promptly has Frank put a giant moustrap baited with a Nutrageous at the entrance to the Umbiliport.

Segment Two: Because Richard Anderson (who played Oscar Goldman on the TV series The Six Million Dollar Man) is in the movie, Mike gives Crow and Tom bionic sound effects. It doesn't take long to enthrall the Bots and annoy Mike.

Segment Three: As Crow discovers one of his bionic noises isn't quite gone yet, a kitten with a whip visits on the Hexfield. Whatever message he has doesn't get out due to his feline tendencies.

Segment Four: The SOL crosses the equator, so Mike hazes himself before the Bots can by dressing in drag, piercing his nose, and drinking witch hazel. The Bots hadn’t planned to haze him.

Segment Five: Mike and the Bots have a Mexican festival on the SOL with a Dr. F piñata. It's full of letters. They read one, but Mike thinks it's too cute to be real and beats it with his piñata stick. Back in Deep 13, Dr. F has a Frank piñata made of Frank.
