A man is unable to play golf with his buddies because he has to fix the springs in the family couch. Frustrated, he wishes aloud that he never has to deal with another spring in his life. Coily the Spring Sprite then appears and grants his wish! The man quickly learns that springs are everywhere and are essential for the working of just about everything he owns, from his front door to his wristwatch and his automobile. Coily returns everything to normal and, having seen the light, the man becomes an unstoppable champion of the role of springs in today's world. Written by yortsnave

The single most vile thing ever on MST3K
21 July 2003 | by (lkflasdfjsdf'we j;i9p'qw vopfae) – See all my reviews

Manos Hands of Fate. Quest of the Delta Knights. Invasion of the Neptune Men. Squirm. OH WHAT THE HELL! O I'm crying.. AWAWAWA! O this short o that demon sprite "NO SPRINGS! No SPRINGS! Insert many crying noisese here. This is more painful than any of those accursed movies (except for revenge of the creature, the black scorpion and the deadly mantis cause those movies are good, just chessy but good. O yea, Gorgo and Teenaged Werewolf 2) All I am going to say is that I'm surprised that damn sprite Coily and that obbsessive freak who has got to be more spring loving than anyone! Mike and the Bots should be praised (agian!) for bashing this.

I love you MST3K!
