Crow takes a liking to smokeless tobacco until Pearl's love deprivation tests give him abandonment issues that only hot pads and a staple remover can cure. While fishing and risking explosive decompression, Crow verbally declares world domination through flesh eating shoes. Servo and Crow then try convincing Mike unsuccessfully that all scenes in every movie would be better if the actors/actresses were nude. Mike shows his defiance again when he argues against the protective cannisters at the end of the movie - apparently, Mike doesn't care if his 20' party sub gets ruined while crawling through the Amazon jungle. Finally, Pearl reveals her most diabolic plot yet - the Mer-Monkey, but a visit from Barnicle Bob proves the opposite effects of the experiment. Written by Titus Yorick

An instant classic!
26 July 2016 | by ericstevensonSee all my reviews

This quickly became one of my favorite episodes of the entire show. I admit that the segments out of the theater weren't great. It doesn't matter, because they were at least still good. I like the image of a fish hook going all the way down to Earth from the satellite. I guess it makes sense with the outcome. Was Crow supposed to have a tumor on his mouth in the beginning because he was chewing tobacco? Wait, I think that was just this mouth cupping it. Yeah, I might think too sadistically.

What made this outright hilarious was the constant fantastic jokes. I think the one that had me laughing the most was, "Oh sure, blame the pinball machine!". I also loved the one right before it, with, "How do I turn off that damn bell?". This movie was just such great fodder for jokes given how clichéd it was. I also loved, "Hi, we're astronauts from a different film" and "Oh rats, I wanted to be a princess". This movie didn't have much dialogue, so they mostly just did the jokes on their own. I'm getting more references with these episodes, like the Zapruder film joke here. Awesome as always. ****
