Mexico puts cinema in a headlock with Santo Versus the Vampire Women (1962). The English-dubbed wrestling/horror flick features a beefy freak in a cape and a silver mask, women who drink blood to improve their rotting complexions, a concerned father who asks people for help and spurns their help at the same time, and more. Meanwhile, Servo shouts excitedly through a moment of silence. Dr. Forrester and TV's Frank order Chinese. Mike and Servo play Stratego. A familiar man in white beckons TV's Frank to the Land of Second Bananas. Dr. Forrester sings "Who Will I Kill?" Everyone says goodbye to TV's Frank. Written by J. Spurlin

Goodbye, TV's Frank!
2 July 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When hearing about this episode, I admitted that I was surprised that TV's Frank didn't leave at the very end, but instead left in the middle of the show! Don't worry, we got to see more of him at the very end. As a show that generally didn't have an ongoing story, it was great to see how they handled a real change in the show's history. TV's Frank was one of the longest running cast members of this show, although he would later appear in the episode "Soultaker". Anyway, I really did feel bad for Dr. Forrester. It's actually kind of nice because he gets to Second Banana Heaven with the other sidekicks. I guess it makes sense in the show on why there are so many fictional characters that appear. They're fictional characters themselves!

Anyway, the actual movie riffing was great too. It was weird, because it wasn't really until the very end that things really got downright hilarious. It was funny throughout the whole thing, but the climax of the film set up the climax of the jokes too. I just love when they're about to take off his mask, the Sun comes up and Tom says, "Wow, he must be ugly". I also loved, "Panty raid! Just kidding of course! I'm going to burn you all to death" or "Authorities suspect arson" and "I decided not to burn this one". The best one earlier was probably, "Can you imagine the huge apocalyptic grease fire if they put Rush Limbaugh in there?". It's hard to believe that guy is still relevant after twenty years! ****
