Since we’re reviewing the KTMA episodes again, I thought a good discussion would be what riffs from the KTMA era do MSTies find actually funny, since most of the time the material was hit-and-miss, and they were still figuring the show out. One riff that I love is from K13 – SST Death Flight, when the passengers start panicking and try to make their way to the back of the plane, and Servo callously suggests that they “form a conga line”, and then begins humming the conga-line music. It’s so dark, and so incongruous with what’s going on in the film, I totally cracked up laughing first time I watched this episode.
I have to pick the moment from “Cosmic Princess” when Joel sings a few bars of the Banana Splits theme song as our heroes climb into the ridiculous moon buggy.
What’s your pick?
