Storyline

A whiny Aztec superhero battles Donald Pleasance because he wants his mask back. Meanwhile, Tom battles Short Man's disease by inserting lifts in his hover skirt and acting like a tough guy. Pearl announces her annual Castle Forrester Ball in which every in the world is invited, but no one comes except Ortega, and only because Observer invites him over to watch Sliders in his room. Inspired by the movie, Mike contacts the Nanites to see if he can get the dry look, but gets Shelli because no one else is available. She takes his request a little too seriously. The Bots then declare Mike to be the great Coatimundi Man but all Mike wants is to get the last of the cold sesame noodles. The Bots move on then to use their genuine magic Aztec mask to take control of folk singer Roger Whitaker because they didn't think anyone else was worth controlling. By the end of the movie, Crow's finally had enough of the whole deal and submits his resignation to Mike and then decides to visit the SOL ... Written by Titus Yorick

My favorite MST3K
12 May 2006 | by boydkc1See all my reviews

This has to be my favorite MST3K ever. For the longest time the only two I ever saw was Invasion of the Neptune Men and Overdrawn at the Memory Banks. Then this horrible example of 1980s cinema hit my TV and I had never laughed so hard. Personal firetrucks, villains breaking the laws of physics, Pumaman "flying", the gold Mike Tyson mask, and of course the great Aztec onion/shaman Vadinho, the real hero of the movie. I still find this episode among the funniest along with Cave Dwellers, Space Mutiny, Final Sacrifice, and a few others. The movie itself was so horribly done one has to wonder why it was made in the first place. 1/10 for the movie 10/10 for the MST3K episode. Also this movie contains the only use Donald Pleasance had for the word comb. Check it out.
