    • NOTES (3)

      • This episode is on disc two of the Mystery Science Theater 3000 XXV DVD set. The movie is called by its original title, Operation Kid Brother because it was the only way that Shout! Factory could get the rights to show it. It is called by the episode's title in the episode itself. Joel Hodgson does an introduction as an extra.

      • Repeated joke: The gang keeps making a joke about the other characters and the "bond girls" wanting Neil's Brother's Autograph. His brother of course is Sean Connery, the original James Bond.

      • Despite starring Lois Maxwell (the original Miss Moneypenny) and the first actor to play M, all of the actors are called by their real life names (Miss Maxwell instead of Moneypenny and Neil Connery is called Dr. Connery throughout the entire film). Only Adolfo Celi seems to have an actual character name.

    • ALLUSIONS (4)

      • In a scene where there is a submarine in view, Crow says "It's Red October. Hi Sean!" This is a reference to the movie The Hunt for Red October which starred Sean Connery as the captain of the titular sub.

      • At one point, Mr. Thayer says "Gentlemen, I shall begin by saying these are all just small scale experiments." Joel and the bots reply to this by saying "These are all just small scale experiments." This is an allusion to a running gag found in the movie Airplane! In the movie Airplane, one character would say to someone else "Let's say...". After finishing his line, both characters would repeat what he just said.

      • Poor Jud Fry is dead.

        After Neil kills an overweight attacker in a fight, Tom Servo sings "Poor Jud Fry is dead!" This is a song from the musical Oklahoma!

      • Hooray for Santy Claus!

        During the song at the beginning of the movie, Joel and the bots sing "Hooray for Santy Claus!" This was the theme song to the movie Santa Claus Versus the Martians, a movie they riffed on in the third season.
