ROCK, ROCK CANDY BABY!
12 September 2002 | by evileric13See all my reviews

One of the better MST3K episodes. Wouldn't wanna watch it without Joel, Servo and Crow's help though. Dick Contino's singing is pretty funny though. I'd watch the movie just for his classic song about rocking a candy baby...
