Episode cast overview:
Joel Hodgson ...
J. Elvis Weinstein ...
Tom Servo / Dr. Laurence Erhardt (as Josh Weinstein)
Jim Mallon ...


For the Invention Exchange, Joel presents a safety device for motorcyclists. The Mads, anticipating the Mad Scientists' Convention, show off their device for getting rid of unwanted guests. For the day's experiment, Joel and the bots are forced to watch the first tedious chapter of "Radar Men from the Men" (1952), with Commander Cody, as Joel explains to Tom Servo what a serial is. Their feature film is the cheesy Mexican horror flick, "The Robot vs the Aztec Mummy" (1958). Meanwhile, the threesome do their best to fend off an attack on the Satellite of Love by demon dogs, who are attracted to the spaceship's bone-like shape. Written by J. Spurlin

This episode is one of only two occasions where the Brains tampered with the audio of the film they watched. Michael J. Nelson later wrote that, in retrospect, these edits "were quite stupid". See more »

One of my least favorite episodes
4 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie this week is "The Robot Vs. The Aztec Mummy" and is preceded by the first episode of the "Commando Cody & the Radar Men from the Moon" serial. I LOVE MST3K with a passion but even I have to admit that this first season outing was a clunker. It has one or two good quips here and there, but the majority of the episode falls flat,sad to say. The devil dogs were memorable at least.

My Grade: D

Shout Factory DVD Extras: 15 and a half minutes of clips from MST3K's 'zero' season (when it was on KTMA); promo for this episode of MST3K &; trailers for The Film Crew, the Secret Polliceman's Balls 3-dvd set, Mr. Mike's Mondo Video, & the Robot Vs. the Aztec Mummy
