Weekend Discussion Thread: Adding a MSTed Movie Character to Another MSTed Movie

Alert reader “Blonde Russian Spy” asks:

What MST3K movie could be made better by inserting a character from another MST3K movie? Me, I’d put the “Giant Gila Monster” into “Monster A-Go-Go,” just so we could say that there actually WAS a monster. What do you think?

I think the fight scene between Eddie Crane and Daddy-O would be amazing.

What’s your pick?

Keep those WDT suggestions coming!

    Perhaps adding Commando Cody to The Starfighters would be interesting. He could show them a thing or two about a thing or two on flying, but we might have to edit the mid-air refueling scenes.

    As if a switch had been turned, as if an eye had been blinked, as if some phantom force in the universe had made a move eons beyond our comprehension, suddenly, there was no trail! There was no giant, no monster, no thing called “Douglas” to be followed. There was nothing in the tunnel but the puzzled men of courage, who suddenly found themselves alone with shadows and darkness! Because it was somehow sent back in time to become the patriarch of Eegah’s clan.

    ‘Winky’ in ‘Eegah.’ he could be that one person that Arch Hall could feel superior to. he could jam with the band and would ultimately be a much more logical weapon to swing at the cops than the pool ladder.

    I’d have Phantom Of Krankor show up in ‘Radar Secret Service’. Just so there is one guy in it who is not dressed in a suit and tie and you can easily tell he’s supposed to be a villain.

    I want to see The Beatnik’s Mooney in Teenage Strangler. He’d add a depth to the movie’s overall feel, and just imagine him in the police station with Betty and Mikey during their meltdown. Audiences would need at least an hour for their ears to stop ringing.

    If Leonardo “da Vinci” (yeah, right) from Quest of the Delta Knights visited Mila’s father in The Cave Dwellers, he would have copied/stolen lots of really bad pseudoscience. Not sure what that would have meant for the Renaissance and modern times, but I don’t wish to think about it.

    I’d rather see Glen punch out the giant punks, so they’d get some punishment for what they did.

    How about El Santo in “Manos”? He’s confronted supernatural menaces before, and he’d just give the Master a couple of piledrivers, then freed everybody.

    Thanks for using my idea, Sampo!

    Colossus Prime:
    I mean…either Torgo to ISCWSLABMUZ or Ortega to “Manos,” right?Seems like the absolute best thing possible.

    Let’s try this. The Master has just sentenced Torgo to death (or hand immolation, or something or other), when who should appear than Torgo’s long-lost brother Ortega! He’s brought a jar of the weird zombie acid, which he throws in the Master’s face, turning him into a slow, easily picked-off zombie. The cops who spent the movie pestering the making-out couple finally show up and shoot the Master, freeing the slave wives. Debbie and her incompetent parents get to leave to go on their first vacation, Ortega gets the wife with the lowest standards, and the rest of the wives go back to their jobs modeling for JC Penney.

    Oh, and Ortega brings Torgo back to the carnival with him and his new bride. He introduces Torgo to Madam Estrella, their eyes meet, and it’s love at first sight. They live happily ever after the end.

    Submitted for your approval –

    Enter a world where Alexander the Talking Chimp from Carnival Magic finds himself in the bottoms of Southwest Arkansas. In an attempt to escape the team of pseudo anthropologists that spots him driving down the road in his station wagon Alexander drives into the bogholes of the swamp and gets stuck. He flees into the foliage where he encounters none other than The Little Creature. Being kindred spirits with the world seemingly against them they hatch a scheme together and wait for nightfall in order to sneak into Doc’s camp and steal the Jeep.
    Doc’s Radar is set for four hundred pounds so the diminutive pair have no trouble getting into the Jeep where Tanya accidentally has left the keys after being distracted by a torn fingernail. An all night drive up the interstate brings the hairy duo to the University of Arkansas campus at Fayetteville where they successfully blend in with the locals by wearing Razorback hats. After acceptance into graduate school at U of A they pursue a program in the Psychology department focusing on aberrant behavior in rural populations. The End

    If Gideon Drew’s head from “The Thing That Couldn’t (or Wouldn’t) Die” was inserted into the film “The Brain That Wouldn’t Die,” Doctor Test & Experiment could’ve placed him on the lab table next to Jan In The Pan. Perhaps they could have shared some interesting dialog and perhaps some meaningful International Coffee moments?
    Also, since Gideon Drew’s head was able to hypnotize people and bend them to his will, the mad doctor might have been able to utilize his talents, and have made a deal with him: help me get a new body for my fiancee Jan, and we can get you a new body too…. whaddaya say, hmmmmmm???

    There is one character who could have made any* of the MSTed movies more interesting: MEGAWEAPON!

    For instance, “Hercules Against the Moon Men.” Imagine Hercules riding in to save day, not on a horse but on Megaweapon! Rolling in comfort through the sand storm, crushing moon men under Megaweapon’s massive tires, and making all those sword-and-sandal soldiers turn tail and run in terror! THAT would be worth the price of admission!

    How about “The Unearthly?” Forget all that boring chit chat with John Carradine, and take a trip with Tor and Megaweapon instead. “Time for go to monster truck rally!!”

    “Tormented” — Little Sandy teams up with Megaweapon. No murderous jazz musician or dead girlfriend can stand in their way!

    “The Day the Earth Froze” — Magical blacksmith Ilmarinen hammers together his most powerful creation yet, the four-wheeled behemoth known as Megaweapon. With Lemminkäinen riding shotgun, they head over to Pohjola and kick some witchy ass!

    “Outlaw” — Megaweapon crashes through the Pullman, crushing Watney Smith. After the celebratory round of free drinks, Cabot and Megaweapon ride off to Got, free the slaves, and overthrow the evil queen and seed-pod-hatted priest.

    Etc. etc.

    * There are a few exceptions. Even Megaweapon couldn’t save a snooze-fest like “Castle of Fu Manchu”.

    Put Vadinho in Manos instead of the father and nothing bad would happen due to his massive amount of competence. Plus, the Master wouldn’t be able to mind control him.

    Or Vadinho in Hobgoblins. The first time they show up, they run away when they see him.

    Vadinho in Final Sacrifice teaming up with Rowsdower to take on Satoris would be awesome.

    Vadinho in The Undead might be able to persuade Livia to repent and she doesn’t get stabbed and instead lives as a hot witch.
