THE UNOFFICIAL EPISODE GUIDE
KTMA-TV CHANNEL 23 1988-1989
Featuring the observations and annotations of Joe "Average
This half-hour dry-run pilot featured riffing on only a
portion of the movie and some rudimentary host segments.
It was never shown on television and no fan copy is known to exist.
However, the primitive "door sequence"
and what appears to be the opening host segment, is featured in the
MST3K Scrapbook tape, once sold by Best Brains, and it the pilot in its
entirety was shown by Joel Hodgson at a convention appeareance.
First shown: 11/24/88.
No fan copy is known to exist.

Opening: Joel introduces the movie and plays a message
from a happy caller.
Host segment 1: J&TB listen to messages from two more
viewers. The first caller is angry about the "constant
interruptions" (i.e, the riffing), but the second caller wants "More!
More! More!" This segment
appears on the MST3K Scrapbook tape.
Host segment 2: Gypsy gets upset when a caller asks for
"less movie, more chapstick" (presumably,
he meant to say "slapstick"). The crew promises to use more chapstick
in the future, and Joel offers
Gypsy a choice between regular and wintergreen.
Host segment 3: Crow explains the best ways to keep
various body orifices clean and healthy. "Never
put anything in your ear larger than a pirate!"
End: Servo and Crow make prank phone calls to Domino's
Pizza and Dan Quayle. Crow explains several uses
for doggie-doo, and Joel invites viewers to call in with their comments.
Special Notes: This is the earliest KTMA episode that has
been "found" by fans, and it's quite
different from the later shows. The Mads have not yet appeared, and
Josh's Servo speaks with a high-pitched "Kermit
the Frog"-type squeak, very different from the laconic "seen-it
done-it" voice he later adopted
for the character.
First shown: 12/11/88.
Opening: It's Christmas time on the Satellite of Love.
Crow volunteers to be cryogenically frozen and turned
into a Christmas tree.
Host segment 1: Joel ponders using Servo as a snowman
lawn-ornament next Christmas. A caller demands to
know who does Joel's hair, and Joel invites the caller to watch the end
Host segment 2: A caller asks Joel why he doesn't hire
Godzilla to appear on the show. Gypsy agrees to impersonate
Godzilla, after some coaxing from Joel. Viewers are invited to
participate in a Ted Turner phone survey.
Host segment 3: Joel and Servo listen to more fan
messages. One caller expresses his fondness for "giant
turtles who breathe fire and sh*t".J&TB debate whether the film's
fight scenes look fake or not.
End: Joel thanks everyone for calling in, and re-runs the
footage of Crow getting frozen. Gypsy thinks Crow
"isn't really beautiful", but sings a holiday song with Joel anyway.
Special Notes: Joel watches the film by himself; as such,
this episode contains what may be the poorest
riffing in MST3K's rich history. It's not uncommon for poor Joel to go
more than two minutes without making a single
joke. Although Servo appears in the host segments, he does not join
Joel in the theater. This is never explained.
Trace was reportedly out of town during the shooting of this episode,
which is why the "Christmas tree gag"
First shown: 12/18/88.
Opening: Crow is still frozen (see previous show). A
caller complains about the Gamera movies; Joel apologises
but says there's nothing he can do. He shows a picture of the Mads, and
explains that they choose the movies.
Host segment 1: Servo hits puberty and develops a new
"DYNAMIC MIGHTY VOICE!" (Portions of this
skit appear on the MST3K Scrapbook tape).
Host segment 2: Gypsy wants a new voice too, but Joel
thinks she sounds like Kim Carnes and is therefore
sexy. A caller asks Joel to unfreeze Crow, and Gypsy eats the shiny
spagetti (tinsel) that Joel decorated with.
Host segment 3: A young viewer invitesJ&TB to his
birthday party. They can't make it, so Servo sends
special birthday wishes. He goes off on a tangent. And keeps going. And
End: With his new MIGHTY VOICE, Servo talks about the
upcoming New Year's edition of MST3K. Crow's still
frozen as the episode ends.
Special Notes: With the exception of the theme song, this
show contains the first mention of the Mads. Joel
informs the world that the Mads send him the movies, although this
contradicts what he said in the opening segment
of episode K05- GAMERA. (In that episode, Joel said that he "raided the
movie library" and found "the
original Gamera," giving the impression that he, Joel, decided what
movies they watch.) Servo is back in the
theater for this episode; his absence in episode K05- GAMERA is never
explained. Interestingly, Servo sits in Crow's
seat rather than his own.
First shown: 12/31/88 (New Year's Eve).
Opening: Joel and Servo unfreeze Crow, and Servo greets
him with his NEW DYNAMIC MIGHTY VOICE! (See previous
show.) Crow isn't pleased at having been frozen.
Host segment 1: J&TB receive their first transmission
from the Mads. "Is it true what they say
about space?" they sneer; "No one can hear you laugh?" They invite Joel
back to Earth for an underwater
experiment, but Joel politely declines. (This scene is included on the MST3K
Host segment 2: Joel is depressed, despite the fact that
Gypsy loves him. Cambot plays some messages from
callers to cheer him up, and they do, a little. Gypsy is surprised that
many of the calls are about her. The last
call goes too far, however.
Host segment 3: J&TB make their New Year's
resolutions. Crow: "I just want world peace, and my
own apartment." They count down the last ten seconds of 1988 before
movie sign intervenes.
End: J&TB review the movie. Servo: "I laughed. I
cried. I cried a LOT." Joel talks about next
week's film, "Gamera Vs. Guiron."
Special Notes: This episode contains the first appearance
of the Mads as speaking characters. Also, the
"countdown to 1989" that the cast performs during the third host
segment was real; this episode first
aired on New Year's Eve, and midnight came right around that part of
the show. The footage of Josh Weinstein performing
stand-up comedy in host segment 1 came from the "KTMA Melon Drop," a
KTMA-produced New Year's Eve special
starring Kevin Murphy (as news reporter "Bob Bagadonuts") which aired
immediately prior to this episode
First shown: 1/8/89.
Opening: The Mads are out of bad movies, and must choose
between sending the Satellite of Love "Star
Wars" or "Jaws." At the last minute, though, Dr. Erhardt finds another
Gamera film. Crow: "With
all my parts, I could've made an excellent vacuum-cleaner. Instead,
it's the movies that suck!"
Host segment 1: Crow gets conked in the head and dreams
that he controls the experiment while the Mads are
trapped in space! He sends them "A Planet of the Apes Christmas" again
and again and again...
Host segment 2: Crow tells Joel and Servo about his dream
from the previous host segment. Servo and Crow
discuss other dreams they've had, with Servo's being particularly vivid.
Host segment 3: Joel tells the Bots about his dreams.
"Sometimes I dream I'm a crane operator. Other
times I'm standing in line for Metallica tickets..."
End:J&TB perform a song about the Satellite of Love. Gypsy
really gets into it, and Joel promises that
there won't be any more Gamera films.
Special Notes: This was the first show of 1989, and
featured the last Gamera film of the KTMA series. For
the first time ever, J&TB did not listen to any viewer calls.
There's also a tiny continuity error: at the
end of episode K07- GAMERA VS. ZIGRA, Joel announced the name of this
week's film; however, everyone seems shocked
by the fact that they're doing another Gamera movie this week!
First shown: 1/15/89.
Opening: Lacking the $30,000 they need to continue
experimenting on Joel, the Mads sell his car to raise
some short-term cash. Joel reveals that he had $30,000 hidden inside
it. The Mads, furious, retaliate by sending
him "the ANT movie!"
Host segment 1: Joel instructs Servo and Crow on Isaac
Asimov's robotic laws. The Bots don't like them,
and make up some laws of their own. Servo: "Never hollow out a robot
and make a fort out of him."
Host segment 2: J&TB discuss the first thing they plan
to do when they get to Earth. (Crow: "I'm
going to kill Sandy Frank." Servo: "Well, that's a given.") Joel wants
to turn off his water, which
he accidentally left running.
Host segment 3: The crew of the SoL enjoy a game of "I
Spy," which quickly and inexplicably degenerates
into a performance of "Wipeout." Since he's the only one with working
arms, Joel takes the drum solo.
Mercifully, movie sign intervenes.
End: Joel programs Crow and Gypsy to recite a new robotic
law. It takes a *really* long time to say, and
the credits roll long before they're done.
Special Notes: This episode is the first to feature a
non-Gamera movie (except KTMAs 1-3, which have not
yet been found by the fans). A theater clip from this episode was
included on the MST3K Scrapbook tape.
First shown: 1/22/89.
Opening: It's Superbowl Sunday! The Mads show off their
"no-d" glasses, which are 3-d glasses
with one lens removed. Dr. Erhardt: "Look, I can only see length!"
Host segment 1: Crow's barbershop is open for business,
and Joel is the first customer. They discuss "that
black Carson, Arsenio Hall" and other hot topics of the day. [This
segment was later re-shot in episode 105-
THE CORPSE VANISHES.]
Host segment 2: In order to disprove the theory of
evolution, Servo teaches himself to fly. He literally
loses his head.
Host segment 3: The Bots help Joel with his taxes. It goes
pretty well until Crow and Servo discover they're
being claimed as "business expenses." Crow: "Maybe we should be wearing
ties and demanding maintenance
End: The crew of the SoL play a game of football, and
Gypsy and Joel duet on "We Are the Champions."
The whole thing degenerates into a tickle fight as the credits roll. A
portion of this scene was included on the
MST3K Scrapbook tape.
Special Notes: This episode originally aired on Superbowl
Sunday 1989, which explains the first and final
host segment's obsession with football.
During one of the commercial breaks, Trace Beaulieu and Josh Weinstein
appeared, as the Mads, in a commercial for
a Twin Cities restaurant entitled Pizza and Pasta, one of MST3K's first
sponsors. The commercial still exists on
many fan-copies of this episode.
Servo's head comes off for the first time in this episode (during host
segment 2). It appears to be accidental,
but the cast covered it pretty well.
This episode also marks the first time the show used a movie that was
actually two TV shows loosely spliced together.
In this case it was two episodes of "Space: 1999." The concept would
later reappear on Comedy Central
with the "Master Ninja" episodes and on The Sci-Fi Channel with the
movie "Riding With Death."
First shown: 1/29/89.
Opening: The Mads are shocked to learn that last week's
ratings were the highest ever, a discovery that
makes them furious. Dr. F: "What do you expect? We're mad scientists!"
Host segment 1: J&TB enjoy a game of tag, which
continues all the way into the theater. [This segment
was later re-shot in episode 105- THE CORPSE VANISHES.]
Host segment 2: Servo falls in love with Joel's new
blender, but the courtship turns sour when Joel drinks
from Servo's girl. Undeterred, Servo flirts with the coffeemaker. [This
segment was later recycled, almost word-for-word,
in episode 103- MAD MONSTER.]
Host segment 3: In a tribute to Salvador Dali, J&TB
practice surrealism. [A similar sketch re-appeared
in episode 107- ROBOT MONSTER.]
End: Servo and Joel discuss the Village People. Servo: "I
read one of those 'Where are they now?' articles.
Turns out one of them's a contruction worker, one of them's a police
officer..." The crew ends the show with
a "Dating Game"-style goodbye kiss.
Special Notes: In host segment 1, after movie sign is
announced, the Bots chase Joel all the way down the
corridor leading into the movie theater. It's a neat visual, and one of
the few times any special effects were
used during the doorway sequence. During the ending segment, Crow
discusses what he plans to do in the upcoming
week. This segment feels improvised, and it's one of the few times in
MST3K's history in which Trace can't think
of anything funny to say. It's almost painful to hear him bluff his way
through. Three of the host segments from
this film were later re-used in Season One shows, making this one of
the most heavily-plundered KTMA episodes.
First shown: 2/5/89.
Opening: Dr. Forrester is attending a Mad Scientists'
Convention in Las Vegas, leaving Erhardt in charge
of the experiment. On the SoL, Joel sings the "Fugitive Alien" theme
song, in honor of today's movie.
Servo is less than impressed by Joel's singing.
Host segment 1: Crow is missing, and Joel discovers that
Servo and Gypsy have disassembelled him. Joel is
not pleased, and asks them to put Crow back together. Gypsy: "I just
hope we can find his spine!"
Host segment 2: Ever notice how you never see certain
celebrities in the same room together, like Michael
Jackson and Diana Ross? Could they be the same person? Joel and Servo
debate the issue.
Host segment 3: Joel hosts a robot dance competition as
Gypsy and Servo boogie down to "YMCA."
Servo: "I can't stop the music! I got it in me, Joel!" Servo later
pronounces this host segment "the
stupidest thing we've ever done."
End: Joel announces the formation of the Mystery Science Theater
3000 fan club. Servo thanks everyone for all
the nice "cards and leathers" [sic] they've sent it.
Special Notes: Trace is absent once again; hence, no Dr.
Forrester or Crow. This marks Trace's third absence
in only twelve episodes. Joel and Servo watch the movie alone, and once
again Servo sits in Crow's seat (as he
did in episode K06- GAMERA VS. GAOS). Although he does not appear in
the episode, Trace is still listed as a writer,
puppeteer and "mad scientist" in the end credits.
First shown: 2/19/89.
Opening: Dr. Forrester is back from Vegas, and he's
brought lots of strange presents for Dr. Erhardt, including
this week's movie. For no particular reason, Joel performs a spit-take.
[Some similar material was used in a segment
in episode 105- THE CORPSE VANISHES].
Host segment 1: Joel tries to disprove the theory that
robots can't feel physical pain by administering
electrical shocks to Servo. (Servo: "You can fill my head with gummi
bears, but I won't talk!")
Host segment 2: Gypsy has a cold, which makes her voice
sexy and seductive. She does a Marilyn Monroe impression
for a very puzzled Joel.
Host segment 3: It's limbo-mania on the Satellite of Love!
Joel, Crow and Gypsy participate while Servo
sings "The Banana Boat Song."
End: Servo and Crow read fan mail from "the babes." Servo invites
viewers to write in with their
favorite pizza toppings, much to Joel's chagrin.
Special Notes: Portions of the theater segments were
included on the MST3K Scrapbook tape. Also,
prior to the opening theme song, there is a "bonus" host segment in
which J&TB perform the "SST
Death Flight Theme Song." This episode marks the first time the crew of
the SoL read letters from viewers
(as opposed to listening to phone calls).
First shown: 3/5/89.
Opening: Forrester and Erhardt try to figure out if
they're really mad scientists, or just angry.
Host segment 1: As a practical joke, Servo, Crow and Gypsy
weld themselves together. Joel isn't amused.
The Bots dash off-screen, put on women's clothing, then return. (Joel:
"I feel like Benny Hill.")
Host segment 2: The Bots discuss the concept of humor, and
wonder if murdering Joel would be funny.
Host segment 3: After the Bots refuse to play any games
with him, Joel gets depressed. (Joel: "Next
time, no free will.") Joel pouts until movie sign rolls around.
End: Crow reads a fan letter praising Servo, after which
Joel reads an anti-Servo letter. Servo reads a
fan letter from "Amy, the MAGNIFICENT PAGAN SHE-BEAST," and gets very,
very excited as he does so.
Special Notes: Host segment 2 is exceedingly dark, much
more so than the show's usual lighthearted tone.
One of the fan letters refers to the part of "SST Death Flight" in
which Servo says "His eye needs
some air." This line was actually said by Crow, but no one corrects the
Also, during Host segment 1, Joel "accidentally" drops a pencil, then
bends down (out of shot) to pick
it up. For a moment, no one is in the frame... then Joel pops back up.
This was done simply so that the editors
could cleanly cut the action, allowing the cast to dress the robots up
in women's clothing before resuming the
First shown: 3/12/89.
Opening: Servo talks the Mads into bringing the crew of
the SoL back down to Earth; naturally, Crow ruins
Host segment 1: A repeat of host segment 1, from episode
K13- SST DEATH FLIGHT, in which Joel helps Servo
Host segment 2: Joel turns into a tyrant, and rules the
ship with an iron fist. The Bots retaliate by quoting
lots of old movies. Crow and Gypsy re-enact the ending of "Casablanca,"
though Gypsy has no idea where
Host segment 3: A tender montage of Servo's favorite
moments aboard the SoL, as Louis Armstrong's "What
a Wonderful World" plays underneath.
End: With Tom in Sick Bay, Joel and Crow check out some
artwork they got from a viewer.
Special Notes: This episode appears to be a tip-of-the-hat
to "Family Ties" and similar shows,
in which old clips were commonly used as "flashbacks." (See the entry
for episode 209- THE HELLCATS in
the Amazing Colossal Episode Guide.) Only one host segment was
a true repeat, but the others were made to
look like they were. The framing story: Servo is supposedly writing a
letter to his uncle, describing all the crazy
antics of the crew.
Joel smokes a cigarette during the second host segment. This is one of
the few times we see a lit cigarette during
the entire history of MST3K.
For as long as MSTies have been collecting episodes, the only known
existing copy this one was missing the final
host segment. That changed in October, 2004, when the missing final
segment came to light. Longtime and devoted
MSTies Lee Lovingood and Michael Slusher have managed to locate the
missing segment in the possession of a Minnesota
woman named Teresa Dietzinger. A fan of the show since those KTMA days,
she was one of the first fan club members,
and sent some artwork in to the show--which was then featured in that
final host segment. She managed to tape the
episode and held on to the tape for 16 years. Although her father long
ago taped over the rest of the episode with
family footage and such, the final host segment remained intact. You
can check out screen shots and a transcription
of the segment here.
First shown: 3/19/89.
Opening: The Mads get a letter informing them that their
grant money has been terminated, because they no
longer qualify as mad scientists... merely "mildly peeved researchers."
Host segment 1: Servo and Crow trick Joel into looking
into a phony telescope, which leaves him with a black
eye. (This segment appears on the MST3K Scrapbook tape.)
Host segment 2: Joel invents a new anti-theft device for purses,
called "Hell in a Hand Bag." Joel
demonstrates it on Crow, much to Servo's delight. [The "Hell in a
Handbag" invention would later be re-used
in episode 103- MAD MONSTER.]
Host segment 3: J&TB perform a military-style song, which
seems to have little purpose other than reminding
the Bots how great Joel is. [A portion of this segment appears on the MST3K
Scrapbook tape, and also appeared
in the Comedy Central special "This is MST 3K."]
End: Gypsy informs Joel and Crow that she's spent the
entire day designing newsletters. Joel displays Gypsy's
creations: the Satellite News, the Fan Club Certificate (suitable for
framing) and the Fan Club Membership Card.
Joel points out that they are available by writing to the MST3K Fan
Special Notes: This film has probably the largest number
of recognizable faces of any MST3K experiment:
look for Henry Fonda, Ava Gardner, Shelley Winters, James Franciscus,
Leslie Nielsen, and many others.
A portion of the legendary "Good morning!" theater segment is included
on the MST3K Scrapbook tape,
as is the hospital birthing scene.
A commercial advertising Joel Hodgson's stand-up comedy act aired
during the original broadcast of this episode,
and still exists in many fan copies.
First shown: 4/2/89.
Opening: The Mads can't reach Joel... all their
transmissions are intercepted by Servo and Crow. So where's
Host segment 1: Crow, Gypsy and Servo search for Joel, but
find only his uniform. Does that mean he's floating
naked out in space? Sadly, yes. Servo: "Quick! Get the telescope!"
Host segment 2: Realizing that Joel is locked out of the
ship, Crow and Servo debate whether they should
let him back in. They discuss several new privilages they'd like to
receive as a reward for doing so, but movie
sign intervenes before they actually bother to open the pod bay doors.
Host segment 3: Cambot fools Crow into thinking that Joel
is back on the ship, but it's just a joke. Things
then get pretty surreal, as Servo demonstrates various ways that
fantasy can be made to look real.
End: Joel floats naked outside the Satellite of Love, as Crow and
Servo discuss their new Joel-less life together.
Special Notes: This is the only MST3K episode that does
not feature a human character aboard the Satellite
of Love. Joel had to go out of town, so the episode was shot without
him; therefore, Servo and Crow watch the movie
alone. (Note that Crow sits in Joel's seat.)
Joel is listed as both "star" and co-writer in the end credits, despite
the fact that he did not appear
in or do any writing for this particular episode.
First shown: 5/7/89.
Opening: Joel, who was trapped outside by the Bots in
episode 17, gets back inside the ship with some help
from the Mads. Joel is a little upset, and the Bots apologize, sort of.
Host segment 1: Joel disciplines the Bots for locking him
out of the ship. Servo and Crow retaliate by locking
Host segment 2: J&TB host a game show, though their
fact-checking skills appear to be weak. ("Who's
buried in Grant's Tomb?" "The Blue Ridge Mountains!")
Host segment 3: MST3K Unplugged! J&TB perform an acoustic
version of the show's theme song.
End: Servo's mouth is broken, so Joel moves it for him
when he needs to talk. The fan club address is read,
and Joel announces that nearly 900 people have signed up so far.
Special Notes: Servo only watches the first half of the
movie with Joel and Crow, opting instead to "bake
muffins." Presumedly Josh had to be somewhere else that day.
Also, the episode never explains how Servo's mouth got broken.
Apart from the show's opening credits, host segment 2 is the last time
we see Gypsy in the KTMA era.
First shown: 5/14/89.
Opening: Joel introduces the film, and then it's movie
sign! This is one the shortest host segments ever--right
up there with "Waffles!".
Host segment 1: A meteor shower is about to strike the
Satellite of Love! Joel explains the tragic consequences
if the hull is punctured and the ship loses its oxygen: "No more
Kibbles n' Bots, and no mid-morning pleasure
stimulations!" Crow tells him to lighten up. (This segment appears on
the MST3K Scrapbook tape.)
Host segment 2: Joel purges Crow's memory, dumping all
non-essential rememberences. "Every PUNKY BREWSTER
episode? Dump! The LYLE WAGNER PENILE IMPLANT SHOW? Dump!"
Host segment 3: Joel taps into Crow's brain, and shows him
his first memory--the moment when he was first
turned on. In the bit, Joel explains that "CROW" is actually an
acronym, which stands for "Cybernetic
Remotely-Operated Woman." Crow, alarmed to discover that he's really
female, begins to panic ("THIRTYSOMETHING
is on! I need some chocolate!") until Joel reveals it's all a joke.
(This skit appears on the MST3K Scrapbook
End: Joel announces that there are nearly 1,000 members in
the fan club now, and the 1,000th member will
win "self satisfaction and a demon dog!"
Special Notes: The first host segment's "meteor shower"
plotline is vaguely reminiscent of the
legendary "meteor shower" scene in MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000: THE
MOVIE, which was regrettably cut
at Gramercy's insistence.
First shown: 5/21/89.
Opening: Dr. Forrester succeeds in creating cold fusion...
in Dr. Erhardt's mouth! Forrester whips out his
straw and partakes of the juices running from his partner's gaping maw.
Disappointed with the results, they send
Joel the movie.
Host segment 1: Crow and Servo receive their weekly
humanity lesson from Joel. "Lesson #1: Always say
'please' and 'thank you,' even if you don't really mean it." Things
degenerate from there.
Host segment 2: The 1,000th fan club member has signed
up: Ms. Gidget Howell! Joel reads a nice letter from
her, and demonstrates the proper way to wear the hat she'll receive as
Host segment 3: Servo reads a fan letter from "Bobby Hodges." The
spelling is quite bad, prompting
Joel to quip, "Bobby must be a freshman at the University of Minnesota."
End: Another fan letter, this one comparing MST3K
(favorably) to other "kiddie shows" of by-gone
Special Notes: Trace is trying desperately hard not to
laugh during the opening host segment; watching him
struggle is at least as entertaining as the skit itself.
After the opening segment's cold fusion experiment, we see the doorway
sequence and the start of the film, without
having first seen J&TB. This is the only time (to the best of my
knowledge) in which we see the preliminary
theater doorway sequence before we see the crew of the Satellite of
First shown: 5/28/89.
Opening: Taking their cue from the "Paul McCartney is
Dead" hoax of the late '60s, the Mads start
a "Joel is Dead" rumor. They make a pretty decent case, quite honestly.
Host segment 1: Joel demonstrates the way special effects
can be used to make a person look really small.
A little boy visits the Satellite of Love and shakes Joel like a rag
Host segment 2: J&TB put on a wacky sitcom, complete with
laugh track, canned applause, and groaningly
bad jokes. (This clip appears on the MST3K Scrapbook tape.)
Host segment 3: To prepare the Bots for the film's upcoming
dinosaur action scene, Joel shows off his model
lizard, which breathes real fire. The Bots are underwhelmed. (The model
would be re-used as an invention exchange
in episode 103- MAD MONSTER.)
End: Summer's coming up, and that means MST3K is going on
hiatus! J&TB discuss what they plan to do
until the show starts up again. Servo: "I'm gonna fill my head with
cocoa butter and surf till I drop!"
Special Notes: Host segments 1 and 3 were apparently aired
in the wrong order: in host segment 1, Joel refers
to their "earlier" segment about the dinosaur... it's pretty obvious
he's referring to host segment 3.
This was the final KTMA episode, though the last host segment makes it
clear that the cast and crew expected to
return to KTMA after a summer break. Fortunately for them (and us),
they had a larger destiny in store for them.
