Mystery Science Theater 3000: VIKING WOMEN AND THE SEA SERPENT
August 13, 2015 1:58 AM - Season 3, Episode 17 - Subscribe

Full title: The Saga of the Viking Women and Their Voyage to the Waters of the Great Sea Serpent. "The Raw Courage of Women Without Men Lost in a Fantastic Hell-on-Earth!" Its spear-throwing, long-boating, suspeciously well-coiffed heroines do take charge and go out to rescue their men from captivity, but the sea serpent is not exactly a prominent figure. With short The Home Economics Story: Iowa State College tries to sell young women on a major in home economics. This is the second of five Roger Corman movies the guys would get over the show's run. That fake-blond male stowaway on the ship is Jonathan Haze, who was in every single Corman movie the Brains riffed, and is also the actor who's been in the most MST movies. Crow's bit as "Willie the Wonderful Wisecracking Waffle" is actually a direct reference to A Case Of Spring Fever, a short they wouldn't actually riff until Season 10! All the host segments here have to do with waffles, by the way. YouTube (2h) Premiered October 26, 1991.

Waffles! Do you have an accurate tally of how many times they say the phrase "Leggo my Eggo" or a variation thereof? If not, I'll get out my little hand-counter.

I'll also keep count of the number of times they call the sea serpent "Cecil".

And Abby Dalton! I will definitely be keeping track of how often they mention her roles on "Falcon Crest", "Hennesey" or "The Joey Bishop Show", all of which I remember (I'm that old... not old enough to have crushed on her, but she and Joey Bishop were one of my 'TV fantasy parents' when I was unhappy with my own. Second to Dick Van Dyke and Mary Tyler Moore, of course.)

Gonna be fun.

I had waffles for breakfast. It was prophetic. Unlike this movie, which was pathetic.

Oh, also, I saw this recent article called "The 25-Episode History of MST3K" and thought y'all might be interested in what the author considers the definitive 25 (it is surprisingly hard to limit it to 25. There are some really great ones that aren't on there).

Interestingly, somebody just told me that this guy's Waffle Dogs had gone viral TODAY. (but then, it was on GooglePlush, so it couldn't be THAT viral)
