One of the funniest MST3K episodes!
5 April 2006 | by (Essex) – See all my reviews

This is probably one of the funniest MST3K episodes I have seen. Mike and the 'bots are witty as ever, as they mock and shame Rick Sloane's "Hobgoblins." The movie was just waiting to be MST3Ked, and the guys do such a good job at making the audience laugh. There are so many wonderful quotes to remember (and so many dreadful Hobgoblin scenes to forget) that you'll have a lot of fun watching this. The other scenes with the guys are very funny, including the guys accidentally turning each other on, Crow setting up a help phone line for people who are in distress after seeing the movie Hobgoblins (which in turn is rang by Bobo, who is having relationship problems) and Pearl scolding the guys for jumping on her new furniture. A definite ten out of ten episode!
