The second half of the movie (the part dealing with the toy monkey) was created using scenes lifted from the movie The Devil's Gift only the ending was different. In the original movie, the monkey's cymbals crashed, killing Dave and his family and not the happy ending here where Merlin stops the monkey at the last possible second.
When Pearl 'unplugs' from the SOL, it is followed by the 'TV turning off' that was used in the first seven seasons of the series, whenever Dr. Forrester told Frank to 'push the button, Frank.'
Actually this has happened more times on MST3K. It also occurs with Mike and Servo, but you don't notice it as much since Crow's mouth is more visible (although you can see Servo say something to Mike at the start of Merlin's Shop of Mystical Wonders, but whatever he said is muted out). This is the work of editor Brad Keely, whom The Brains encourage to cut riffs out that seem unnecessary (usually in places where there's a ton of riffing, and not enough of the actual movie to be heard).
When the man gets into his car in the 'A Case of Spring Fever' segment, Crow's mouth is moving, but he dosn't say anything. Did he say something the creators decided to censor?
On two occasions, Tom falls out of his seat: During the cat fight and while the girls change into their bikinis after Joe and Bob arrive.
In the end segment when Mike tries to escape the SOL, Tom Servo tells him "Joel escaped in an escape pod that Gypsy hid in a box of Hamdingers!" Actually, in Joel's last episode, Gypsy didn't hide anything in a box of Hamdingers. The escape pod was already there, according to Mike.
Included in the 20th Anniversary Edition dvd set with First Spaceship on Venus, Laserblast, and Werewolf.
As in Werewolf, the appearance of Joe Estevez made for jokes about his brother Martin Sheen and his nephews Charlie Sheen and Emilio Estevez.
In the host segments, Joel comes on board the SOL. However, he enters and leaves through the hallway to the theater.
Brigid Conley Walsh who plays Thena in this experiment is still acting; she starred in two episodes of "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" and now stars in "Army Wives" on Lifetime under the name Brigid Brannagh.
Goof: At one point Eric says "Where?" and Crow says "He's doing Juan Epstein," meaning one of the characters from Welcome Back, Kotter. Actually, it was Vinnie Barbarino who did the "Who? What? Where?" bit.
Pearl never said she was sending the short Robot Rumpus.
When Mike is hitting the 'skull' Crow with a golf club, he accidentally hits Tom, which knocks his clear dome right off.
When Brain Guy shrinks Bobo, you can see Bobo's shadow on the wall near the fire place, proving that Bobo isn't small, just across the room.
Mike & the 'bots just laughed through the entire closing movie credits.
There was a scene where Peter is coming down a ladder and the MST logo covers him up. That was to cover the accidental showing of his area.
This is one of the few episodes where Mike and the Bots were actually worried about the movie in question, rather than taking it in stride.
Included in the 20th Anniversary Edition dvd set with First Spaceship on Venus, Laserblast, and Future War.
The wolf in the last host segment was played by Kevin Murphy's dog, Humphrey.
Mike's brother Eddie (also played by Michael J. Nelson) was in the theater between the third and fourth host segments. Eddie was totally different than Mike, a rough man who had Tom totally bullied. Crow, however, is not intimidated, calling him 'Edward.' At one point, Eddie just gets up from his seat and stands off to the side, smoking and drinking beers. He tosses a couple of empty cans on the floor, and when it is time to go, he just grabs Tom by the neck to carry him out.
