  • Red & Kitty are stuck with Bob & Joanne in the basement, Kelso, Jackie, Hyde, & Fez are stuck at the school dance, and Eric & Donna are stuck at the radio station all because of the tornadomoreless

    I thought that this was an excellent episode of "That 70s Show". All of three plots in this episode were hilarious. Kelso/Jackie/Hyde/Fez plot when they are stuck at the school dance because of the tornado was very funny. Red/Kitty/Bob/Joanne plot was very funny when Red & Kitty are stuck with Bob & Joanne in the basement because of the tornado. Eric and Donna being stuck at the radio station because of the tornado was also very funny. Eric driving to the radio station to pick up Donna and didn't even realize there was a tornado was very funny. Jackie sleeping and having a dream of "The Wizard of Oz". It was hilarious Fez was the lion in Jackie's "The Wizard of Oz" dream and Fez says "I want to be a bear". Hyde drawing a unibrow on Jackie while she was sleeping was absolutely hilarious. Red, Kitty, Bob, and Joanne playing some board game since they're stuck in the basement was funny. Fez wanting to have sex with Rhonda on the school stairs was very funny. The ending was hilarious when Jackie finally saw the unibrow that Hyde drew on her and she screams loud. Overall, an excellent episode of "That 70s Show". 10/10moreless

    A great episode of That 70s Show here and just another example at how season 4 was That 70s Show at it's best. We've got some great classic scenes here with great interactions from all the characters, and we even got a hilarious fantasy which is unheard of in the later seasons. Eric and Donna actually acting civil toward each other, and actually have a genuine plot together as friends was great, and the writers don't disappoint us with Eric & Donna sharing a kiss which yet again hints the Eric & Donna relationship which I'm sure had all fans at the edge of their seats, great plot device. Jackie just stole the show here with her fantasy in homage to Wizard of Oz. The character's reactions to what they become in the dream is just classic That 70s Show humor, and we got two classic circles with Jackie and her unibrow or Eric & Donna with the cardboard KISS members.

    Then we've got another classic element which was Fez trying to lose his virginity, he was genuinely funny here. The only thing that was off was Red's interactions with Joana, he's always out of character when he's with her. Overall, a classic episode with had plots that everyone can enjoy, not to mention it was hilarious.moreless
  • A tornado attacks while the school dance is happening!

    This was a pretty funny episode. It's so funny when Jakie keeps poking the teacher. The teacher says "If you poke me one more time, I am gonna paddle you." Kelso says that would be hot. Ha Ha! And it's funny when Eric drives during the tornado to pickup Donna and doesn't even realize there was a tornado. And the dream with the Wizard of Oz was so funny! Best moment of the episode. It looks like Eric and Donna would be back together. But I thought the B-plot wasn't really funny in my opinion. But still this episode was mostly funny.moreless
  • A tornado warning has waky affects on the gang who eventually arrive at the snow king but the bad very bad thing that Jakie Burkheart is not elected snow queen and Jakie Burkheart has a dream of the wizard of Oz and Fez is a lion and Hyde is a metal guy!!moreless

    This episode is really funny,its worth watching and i could watch this episode over and over again but it was really disturbing when i saw kelso's legs i mean its kind of surprising cause he almost never where shorts. Iys cool because kelso pee'd on the ground in cursive i cant do that.Its also funny how Donna makes an excuse to get a ride.Hyde is so cool because when you think he's doing something nice he turns it around to a party like in this episode.Jakie looked so hot in this episode.It's funny how Eric's in the car listening to his music and the tornado is riht behind him.moreless
  • A tornado hits point place

    There are too many classic moments in this episode including the tornado following Eric’s car and Jackie’s Wizard of Oz dream in which she has an epiphany that winning titles and being nice to people was the same thing.

    The plot of this episode is very good, Hyde having a party in the coach’s office with his best stuff (Fez believing this to be a piñata), Red and Kitty playing games with Bob and Joanne, Kelso being prom king while Jackie got runner up queen and Eric seemed to risk the tornado to pick up Donna, all the storylines are hilarious.

    Overall there are jokes aplenty and a very well written plot to hold the episode together.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Kelso: Hey guys! It is literally 1,000 degrees out! I'm wearing shorts in January!

      Even though it is January, and this episode follows an episode that was set at Christmas time, 1978, the license plate is still dated 1978 rather than 1979.

    • TV Announcer: This just in: the National Weather Service has canceled the tornado warning. Updating our top story: a local teen is in critical condition...

      Kitty ignores the update on the local teen in critical condition, even though earlier she had been very worried about Eric being caught in the tornado.

    • The music used in this episode was:
      Take A Chance On Me (1977) by ABBA;
      Ridin' The Storm Out (1974) by REO Speedwagon;
      Feels Like The First Time (1977) by Foreigner;
      Still The One (1976) by Orleans.

    • (after being caught by Coach Ferguson)
      Hyde: You should suspend me. I need a vacation.

    • Eric: What to do? Let's see... there's you, there's me, candlelight. You know back in the old days, we would have...
      Donna: We're not doing that.
      Eric: Uh-huh, yeah. So quick to dismiss the thing you once ached for.
      Donna: You mean cheese sticks?
      Eric: If you want to call it that, sure.

    • Kelso: All right, that's gross! Who threw the retainer?

    • Kitty: Well... I'm just so worried about Eric. A tornado in January!
      Red: Yeah, life's full of surprises, like these two showing up 'cause they don't have a basement. Surprise!
      Joanne: Gee, Red, you seem grouchy. Surprise!
      Kitty: Red, if Eric gets caught in a tornado, he'll get blown to Canada. He's very light.

    • Hyde: Coach Ferguson, shouldn't you be on the football field teaching boys how to play with balls?

    • Eric: I've got my watch, my wallet, my who-am-I-kidding condom.
      Hyde: Yep, sounds like you've got everything... except for a tall redhead.

    • Hyde: During the dance, I'm going to throw a party in Coach Ferguson's office. I'm bringing my best stuff.
      Fez: Are you saying what I think you're saying?
      Hyde: You know it.
      Fez: Oh, boy. You have a piñata?

    • Kelso: I did campaign. I wrote our names all over the place.
      Eric: Kelso, you peed in the snow.
      Kelso: In cursive! It was awesome!

    • Jackie: Michael, this is my worst nightmare!
      Kelso: Tornados are your worst nightmare? Mine is monsters.

    • Donna: This is the best tornado ever!
      Eric: I know! And who better to be stuck here with than America's most beloved rock band... ladies and gentlemen, Aerosmith!

  • NOTES (2)

    • This was Mila Kunis' favorite episode because she got to play Dorothy in the fantasy scene, a role she was denied in grade school.

    • The song playing while the tornado is behind Eric in the Vista Cruiser is the '73 REO Speedwagon song, Ridin' the Storm Out. It was replaced with generic rock music in syndication, as were most of the songs in the series.
