Greydon Clark provides the movie, which features a brigade of scantily clad vigilantes (and one underage brat) fighting against a local drug syndicate providing narcotics for school kids. In between the movie, Crow feels he might have amnesia but finds out it's actually Ambrosia when Mike whacks him with a wooden mallet. Down in Deep 13, Dr. Forrester and TV's Frank fight bad ratings by dressing as their favorite '70's relief pitchers and turns Mike and the bots into the cast of "Renegade." Later, Crow rewrites Earth VS. Soup into a more jivey upbeat '70's environment but Gypsy gets mad because she doesn't have any lines. In the end, after Mike impersonate's Fonzy and Aaron Spelling's house eclipses the SOL, Crow and Tom introduce the Shame-o-meter to measure the shameful performances provided by Jim Backus before it's short circuited by the shameful appearance of the Mads dressing up as Bobby Riggs and Billie Jean King to make up for their previous costumes.Written by
I'm pretty certain the line mentioned in the summary comes from this movie,to which Tom Servo pipes in reply "Pauly Shore does."
I was a loyal devotee of this show,so I know it would be pure hyperbole of me to say that any one show was the funniest or most spot-on. I will say that what strikes me about this ep is that I believe I've seen this show three times(at least twice)and both times I laughed so hard it feels like I was physically weak before the show was over. Mike and the 'bots grill to a savory broil this late '70s offering starring very lovely model/Playmate types(one of them,Susan Lynn Kiger,really WAS a Playboy playmate)as sexy young women of various types who band together to fight a crime syndicate. "Gilligan's Island" bulwarks Alan Hale Jr. and Jim Backus have noticeable parts(and lend themselves to plenty of "Little buddy","Magoo" and "Lovey" jokes)and the music is utterly crappy,just making this show increasingly riotous.This HAS to be on one of the DVD compilations,and when I find it I'm buying!
