This cult classic episode starts off with Joel experiencing what it would be like if the bots actually looked up to him and immediately realizing just how hollow it leaves him inside. The Mads' Chocolate Bunny Guillatine goes up against Joel's Cartooner in the invention exchange. Joel and the bots endure the movie in any way they possibly can, ranging from debating whether or not Torgo is actually a monster to pantomiming a car drive through Texas (which only backfires on them). While Joel pretends to be the Master and the bots beat each other up in diaphanous robes, Torgo delivers a pizza to the Mads, who refuse to take the Crazy Bread for a very good reason. It gets worse when they realize how Torgo has kept the pizza warm.

(at around 18 min onward) Joel can be seen turning to Crow, revealing that he's wearing glasses. Light passes through his lenses, which doesn't explain why light doesn't pass through Tom's glass bubble-gum machine head. See more
Give ear to our words, O Manos, and hear us. Hear us. Hear us!
