Mike and the 'bots get terminal enchantment from Frosty (1964), a dimwitted Russo-Finnish children's film featuring an old elf with a mushroom on his head, a witch whose answer to everything is sitting on a shovel, and the magical title character who has the power to reverse film. Meanwhile, Michael Nelson is Lord of the Dance. Professor Bobo and Observer fight over who is in charge. Observer discovers that even without a body, he smells bad. Crow hires Yakof Smirnoff and a guy named Earl Torgeson to lecture about the film. Crow becomes a bear. Servo puts on a babushka in a hopeless attempt to be adorable. Pearl nominates Dunston Checks In (1996) as the greatest ape movie ever. Written by J. Spurlin

This is my ninth favorite episode of MST. This fantasy film is no doubt an oddity, though not entirely of the best kind. This was supposed to be based on a Russian Fairy Tale which was their version of Cinderella, this film is a whole different version indeed. The darn tale doesn't make a lot of sense as it's kinda all over the place.

This episode had a lot of riffs that really cracked me up. I really liked how Mike and company were acting really sad about that Roasted Pork thinking it was Babe the talking pig. A scene with the witch with a house that stands up and walks (yeah I'm not kidding) and the protagonist constantly stomps his foot down making the house immobile, it's funny how the guys address the redundancy of that scene. Or there was one scene where there were these walking trees attacking the protagonist and then Crow says, "Give him dutch elm disease!" that really cracked me up.

Overall this episode is a slippery but fun ride.

Rating: 4 stars
