Mike and the 'bots suffer through The Giant Spider Invasion (1975), featuring the TV has-beens, Alan Hale Jr. and Barbara Hale. Set in Mike's home state of Wisconsin, the movie also gives them a red-bearded redneck wearing red long underwear and a back brace; a giant spider that looks like a black car with eight legs; outer-space coconuts, each with diamonds and a spider inside; and more. Meanwhile, Pearl and her two underlings go camping and find "zucchini throw pillows" that are really alien pods out of Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978). Tom Servo dresses as a cheerleader, but fails to inspire any "spee-rit!" Later, a duplicate Tom Servo shows up. Written by
