Mystery Science Theater 3000: POD PEOPLE
April 23, 2015 12:44 AM - Season 3, Episode 3 - Subscribe

aka The Unearthling, Extra-Terrestrial Visitors, Tales of Trumpy, The Return of E.T. and Los Nuevos Extraterrestres. (1983, Color, Spain, Aliens, Science Fiction, Knockoff, Horror) Movie A: Poachers in the woods incur the wrath of a mysterious entity who starts hunting them. Movie B: A singing group in the city decides to go on vacation. Movie C: A lonely adopted boy grows from a huge egg a magic aardvark he names Trumpy. The movies collide, people get killed, cut, wrap, print. A particularly beloved episode of our favorite movie-mocking cowtown puppet show, and the source of one of its most enduring catchphrases.

Joel: You know that Trumpy is one ugly--
Servo and Crow: Shut yo' mouth!
Joel: Hey, I'm only talkin' about Trumpy, can you dig it?

Sadly, I have tickets for a show tonight and I'll miss this week. Everyone have fun doing *stupid* things without me.

The scene where Trumpy declares everything he sees to be a potato of some sort is one of my absolute favorites.

It stinks!

(I'll be there, but will be cobbling together some mobile devices to do so. Apologies in advance for a chat wall full of entrances and exits and requests for time stamps to watch along on YouTube.)

This was the very first MST3k I ever saw, but I saw it in syndicated form where they split episodes in two and had weird/funny intros and outgrow with Mike doing a Jack Perkins impression. However, the station where I grew up that was airing them would play both halves of an episode back to back. I nearly injured myself laughing, and this is still a favorite of mine, especially the host segment parodying the song the characters are recording.

This is definitely one of my favorites. I've probably watched it a couple of hundred times. So many great moments that I could sit here and quote it all night. It might be their masterpiece, honestly.


“Rick: You guys are all over the place.”

“Yeah, you're up in the mountains, you're in a studio, you're in a cave, you're in a shotgun shack, you're in another part of the world, you're on top of old Smoky, there. Huh! You're all over the place.”

This is one of my all time favorites. "Trumpy, you can do stupid things!"

I want "Idiot Control Now" as an MP3.

I wish I'd watched this in the long, long ago- Trumpy is much less amusing now.
