The Movie


The plot follows the tried-and-true course of outer-space fantasies from time immemorial. After much saber rattling, Earth and the extraterrestrials duke it out with high-tech weaponry. The cause of it all is the title character, who seeks asylum on Earth from a totalitarian space regime.[1]

Segment One: Crow is missing, and Joel discovers that Servo and Gypsy have disassembled him. Joel is not pleased and asks them to put Crow back together. Gypsy: "I just hope we can find his spine!"

Segment Two: Ever notice how you never see certain celebrities in the same room together, like Michael Jackson and Diana Ross? Could they be the same person? Joel and Servo debate the issue.

Segment Three: Joel hosts a robot dance competition as Gypsy and Servo boogie down to YMCA. Servo: "I can't stop the music! I got it in me, Joel!" Servo later pronounces this host segment "the stupidest thing we've ever done."

Segment Four: Joel announces the formation of the Mystery Science Theater 3000 fan club. Servo thanks everyone for all the nice "cards and leathers" [sic] they've sent in.[1]
