Trivia

After this episode's original air date, it was never seen on TV again due to an unknown third party making a claim on the movie rights. It was not made available to the public again until 2013, when it was released in Shout! Factory's MST3K 25th Anniversary DVD set. See more »

Quotes

Mike Nelson: Uh, Mr. Maltin, is "Gorgo" really that bad? I mean, you're not really gonna hurt us, are ya?
Leonard Maltin: Well, that's a matter of opinion, Mike. Now I actually like "Gorgo," but when we reviewed it for my number 1 best-selling Movie and Video Guide, it put two of my assistant editors into intensive care. So who knows? Besides, Pearl promised me a light lunch at SkyBar.
