MST3K Volume 12

Volume 12 of Mystery Science Theater 3000 was the last boxed set put out by Rhino, and it contains The Rebel Set, Secret Agent Super Dragon, The Starfighters, and Parts: The Clonus Horror. There are two episodes with Joel and two with Mike.


The first episode has a short called Johnny at the Fair, which is pretty amusing. It’s about a child who gets lost at the fair, and of course Joel and robots mock him. The Rebel Set is a black and white film about a group of men who plan to steal money and escape on a train. The crew talks about what they would do during a long train stop, and only Tom Servo has violent plans.
 
Secret Agent Super Dragon has a horrible theme song, and it will burrow itself into your brain. Even worse, Crow and Tom sing the song again. The show itself is about an James Bond knockoff who has to solve a mystery about drugs or something, and it ends with a masquerade party in Amsterdam.
 
The first episode with Mike is The Starfighters, which is about pilots in the army. Many of them have very bad sunburns, and there are a lot of innuendoes about refueling in flight. Crow spends a good portion of the episode trying to connect to the “information super highway,” and the United Servo Academy Men’s Chorus sings. There’s also a great scene when the pilots test out their poopie suits.
  
The last disc is Parts: The Clonus Horror, and the highlight of this episode features Crow T. Robot’s new nose job. The movie is about a clone camp, and the whiniest clone escapes to find his clone daddy. The movie ends with a lobotomy or two and featured Peter Graves, who went to the University of Minnesota.

  1. I am guilty of watching Parts: The Clonus Horror . It is the worst movie I have ever watched.

  2. Did you watch it without the robot commentary? That would be tough to watch!

  3. Yes I watched it with the commentary that was the only reason I got through the movie.
