"Teenage Hoodlums from Another World on a Horrendous Ray-Gun Rampage!" "Before...A Beautiful Girl. One Moment Later...A Skeleton!" Despite the ad lines, the titular teenagers number only two, and one of them is the milquetoast "Derek." Their mission: to prepare Earth for the coming of their lifestock, which naturally take the form of gigantic lobsters. It's a good episode! This is the movie that gives us the infamous "TORCHAA!!" catchphrase, beloved of MSTies everywhere. It's also Mary Jo Pehl's first episode writing! YouTube (1h33m) Premiered June 27, 1992.

"You can be too rich and too thin!" One of my favorite MST3K LINES.

...which is why I've dedicated myself to be neither. But I digress.

Teenagers. Aliens. Two great tastes that together taste... well, perfect for ridicule by robots...

I will be there with bells on. (I still have the sleigh bells I wore during my fraternity hazing.)

Please take off the bells, the ringing is bothering the neighbors.

I love this one. I still find myself saying "Give me that beard!" when especially fake-looking facial hair is on screen.

My most favorite episode! Disney World's Atomic Cafe played clips from this and I was crestfallen to see it without Joel and the bots.
