0507: I Accuse My Parents

MST3k, Experiment #0507

SHORT:
The Truck Farmer. Truck Farmer, the second edition, reveals the as yet untold story of the advances modern age that allows vegetable farming to supply the needs of the American public all year round. It does gloss over the somewhat minor role crop-picking migrant workers in Florida, Texas, and California play in this process...

I Accuse My Parents.

Ignored by his alcoholic parents, Jimmy Wilson starts hanging around with some shady characters. After falling in love with a lounge singer, Jimmy tries to impress her by doing jobs for her shady boss. After one of these jobs goes bad, Jimmy ends up on the run. Eventually, he must confront the truth, his past, and his parents.

Rodney the stripper is probably one of the creepiest invention exchanges... TV's Frank pre-bakes a stripper into a cake, and we find out at the end of the episode that it's a MALE stripper. Good job, Frank.

I think this episode is one of the best. I absolutely love the host segment recreating the nightclub scene. The short is actually a bit bland and boring... not often that happens... but the movie is insanely awesome in it's retarded simplicity. This kid blames all his problems with the law and thugs on his parents forgetting his birthday. That's really about it, but it makes for some incredible riffing. I laughed incredibly hard through the entire thing... Everyone needs to watch this episode. Over and over and over again.


Favourite line: "Do you think he'd ever accuse us?"
